WWE Battleground Goes Off-Air After Power Outage In Buffalo

The WWE Battleground pay-per-view feed was dropped worldwide during the pre-main event promotional video for Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton for the vacant WWE Championship. The feed immediately cut out and went to the following screen:


The feed was restored at 10:21 PM EDT with Justin Roberts standing in the ring like he didn't have a clue they were live.

Michael Cole apologized for the outage and said it was due to a power outage at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York. They showed a camera shot of the vacant WWE title belt and went on with the show, talking up the main event between Bryan and Orton.
