Report on terrible WWE SmackDown botch

Last updated

This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown had a pretty terrible botch during one of the final segments of the show.

Drew McIntyre and Karrion Kross were continuing their feud in the co-main segment of the broadcast, and Scarlett accompanied Kross to the ring.

During the segment, Scarlett attempted to use a fire gimmick on the Scottish Superstar, and it did not appear to work as well as it should’ve done.

According to a new report from Fightful Select, the apparent mistake was exactly that, a botch.

“If you couldn’t tell, the flash paper segment on last night’s episode of Smackdown did not go as planned” the site reported.

“We’re told that very clearly, the flash paper was not ready for live TV and didn’t work in a moment where it needed to catch enough of someone’s face to sell” Fightful continued.

“Word got delivered to Karrion Kross to keep going. He and Drew McIntyre improvised the rest of what happened. 

“We’re told that the flash paper was actually brought with the team that took the company jet to Smackdown, and wasn’t picked up locally or brought with the prop team” Fightful concluded.
