Troops Overseas Can't Watch WWE, What Happened After Battleground, More On Power Outage, Backlund In Attendance

Battleground Blackout

- Troops of the United States military stationed overseas are unable to follow WWE programming as the Armed Forces Network is out due to the government shutdown. This included Sunday's WWE Battleground pay-per-view and the NFL games.

- After WWE Battleground went off the air, Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton received assistance from referees but Bryan ended up hitting a flying knee on Orton.

- When the power outage happened at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York, there were backup generators that allowed for lights to stay on in the arena but an announcement was made by Brad Maddox they were off the air. The show wasn't sold out and drew an estimated 12,000 fans. We're told the reaction to the no finish on the main event caused the audience to turn on the show.

- Bob Backlund was at WWE Battleground and was interacting with fans in the concourse prior to the show. Fans could get their photo with him for $30.
