WWE Making Changes For Madison Square Garden SmackDown

Triple H WWE Smackdown

WWE is expecting a big crowd for SmackDown.

On June 28th, WWE returns to the world-famous Madison Square Garden for SmackDown.

The Blue brand is still reeling from the devastating debut of Jacob Fatu seven days ago as he tore through Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens. With The Bloodline now looking stronger than ever, fans are excitedly waiting to see what comes next.

It appears WWE is anticipating a packed house for the taping, with Mike Johnson of PWInsider reporting the company will be running a “scaled-back set.” This has been done in the past to allow more fans into the arena.

According to the latest update from Wrestle Tix, 16,646 tickets have been distributed, with the area set up for 17,660. The taping has already passed the attendance for WWE’s last visit to the arena on December 26th for its annual Holiday Supershow (15,831), and the SmackDown taping on July 7th, 2023.

What Does WWE Have Planned For SmackDown?

Following his stunning debut on June 21st, Jacob Fatu will be part of a special Bloodline Acknowledgement Ceremony. Meanwhile, the show will be dominated by multiple Money In The Bank qualifying matches.

In the first women’s Triple Threat Match, Candice LeRae, Jade Cargill, and Tiffany Stratton will try and earn a spot at Money In The Bank, while Naomi, Blair Davenport, and Indi Hartwell will meet in the second.

There will also be a men’s qualifying match with LA Knight, Logan Paul, and Santos Escobar doing battle.
