WWE recently issued a directive prohibiting the commentators from mentioning the names of the referees during television broadcasts.
A few comments made on commentary following the Evan Bourne vs. John Morrison match on last week's episode of ECW were edited out of the show's replay over the weekend (which airs on Universal HD on Saturday nights). Matt Striker used the term "match of the year candidate" with Josh Matthews calling it a "five-star match." Both terms were stricken from the replay.
The local promoters for the Raw brand's tour of Mexico next month were upset with Rey Mysterio being drafted to SmackDown because they had promoted the tour around him. As a result of the protesting, Mysterio is back on the tour, as is Umaga. It remains unclear whether Umaga is heading back to Raw, as he is advertised to wrestle Mysterio on two shows even though he is a member of SmackDown. Everyone else taking part on the tour besides Mysterio is on Raw.
The following matches are scheduled for tonight's edition of WWE Smackdown:
- Kane and Matt Hardy vs. CM Punk and Jeff Hardy
- The Undertaker vs. The Big Show
- WWE Divas Title Match: Maryse © vs. Gail Kim
- Non-Title Match: MVP © vs. Chavo Guerrero
- Ted Dibiase and Cody Rhodes vs. Shane McMahon and Batista
