WWE Smackdown Live HOLT Report
November 29, 2016
From Columbia, S.C.
Report by Charles Sitton, PWTorch correspondent
HAPPENINGS OFF LIVE TV…
-Dark Match Opener: Hype Bros. beat Fandango & Tyler Breeze in about 5:00.
-Dark Match after Smackdown & 205 Live: Dean Ambrose & Dolph Ziggler beat A.J. Styles & Miz in about 10:00.
-A lot of fans left after Smackdown ended, that despite hyping “205 Live” throughout the Smackdown’s commercial breaks, and announcing a star-filled dark tag match for after “205 Live,” a lot of fans – including families on a school night once 10 p.m. hit – left. So many fans left that they actually moved fans over to the camera side to be essentially seat fillers so it looked okay on TV. The arena was pretty dark with purple spotlights to hide empty seats, also.
