-The WWE Smackdown taping takes place tonight in Fort Wayne, Indiana at Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. The advertised television main event is Ryback vs. Mark Henry. Yes, really. Chris Jericho is also advertised on both the WWE and arena websites. We are looking for correspondents for tonight's television taping. If you are going to Smackdown and want to help, contact me at

-The advertised dark matches for tonight's Smackdown taping are Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show in a Last Man Standing match for the World Hvt.
