Another Survivor Series Bout, Gunn's WWE Release, Backstage Smackdown News

Billy Gunn

- Tyler Breeze will face Dolph Ziggler at Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.

- Dr. Tom Prichard was at Tuesday’s Smackdown taping in Knoxville, TN and interacted with several names that he trained. He’s one of the most respected names in the business.

Because it was known Gunn came back with elevated testosterone levels and was suspended from competitive powerlifting, the company felt that they had no choice to avoid a double standard. There isn’t heat on him and several people were upset by Dave Meltzer’s breaking news report because it’s how many of Gunn's friends and family found out about his release.

- Attendance was weak at last night’s WWE Smackdown taping in Knoxville, TN. I don’t have the numbers but there were a lot of empty seats with several photos circulating social media.
