WWE Rumors: Actual backstage fight between Superstars breaks out during SmackDown Live
When future WWE executives, flipping through the annals of the company for inspiration, arrive at the page for July 19, 2016, they will hopefully be smiling from ear to ear. The first episode of SmackDown Live in five years is a success, thanks to the Draft and let’s not forget, the main event between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
Though the show had a good balance of matches and big name drafts, its memory will be stained by a backstage fight. PWInsider reports that Simon Gotch of the Vaudevillains and Sin Cara got into it backstage.
Reports surfaced of the fight during the John Cena-Luke Gallows match, which was the first contest of the evening. It took place in the dining area. It is worth noting that the Lucha Dragons have been split, with Sin Cara on RAW and his erstwhile partner Kalisto on SmackDown. The Vaudevillains were drafted to SmackDown as well.
Other draft picks for Raw include former WWE Champions Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, tag team champions New Day, Women’s Champion Charlotte, United States Champion Rusev (and Lana) and Kevin Owens.
SmackDown’s roster boasts of WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, John Cena, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Becky Lynch, to name a few.
