    No ADR? Smart move not having your WHC on television days before the biggest PPV of the year

  2. RS says:

    This week’s Smackdown was really just WrestleMania hype with a couple matches thrown in

  3. Scott II says:

    And to add on what RS said, hasn’t past Skackdowns before WrestleMania been nothing more than on big promo for Mania

  4. Meh says:

    The UK and other places got the International version of Smackdown where instead of the matches listed above in this topic there was WrestleMania Rewind matches. :(

    The first match on the WrestleMania Rewind that was on the International version of Smackdown was John Cena vs Batista from WrestleMania 26.

    The second match on the WrestleMania Rewind that was on the International version of Smackdown was Edge vs Undertaker from WrestleMania 24.

    The third match on the WrestleMania Rewind that was on the International version of Smackdown was Triple H vs Randy Orton from WrestleMania 25.

    The fourth and final match on the WrestleMania Rewind that is on the International version of Smackdown was Hulk Hogan vs The Rock from WrestleMania 18.
