-WWE Smackdown Live is in Bakersfield, California at Rabobank Arena. Anything can happen on Smackdown Live. Or at least that’s what they told us over and over on Raw last night because they didn’t have anything else to advertise. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage of Smackdown as the show airs live on USA Network at 7CT/8ET, and my WWE Raw Hit List will be available on Wednesday.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight’s Smackdown Live in Bakersfield and all of the WWE overseas events this week. If you are going to Smackdown or another upcoming show and want to help by sending in reports, contact me at email@example.com
