The following was taped earlier today in Manchester, England to air tonight.
11/6 WWE Smackdown Live taping results:
* The taping opens with Smackdown Live GM Paige introducing Shane McMahon, the winner of the WWE World Cup Tournament at Crown Jewel. The crowd in Manchester was quite negative to Shane, including Paige referring to him as the “best in the world.” A loud “CM PUNK” chant broke out at one point (as noted in the video below). Paige and McMahon announce that Daniel Bryan will be the captain of Team Smackdown at Survivor Series. The Miz comes out and demands to be co-captain and gets his wish.
