Everyone with the exception of Crimson, Madison Rayne, and Ric Flair were at the tapings last night. Despite estimated poor attendance figures before the show (one estimate said that about 800 tickets were sold), estimates for the actual taping ranged from 3,000-3,500. The arena held up to at least 10,000. No word yet how many tickets were actually sold and how many were given for free/discounted prices in order to fill the arena, however.
Jeff Hardy was said to be in “good spirits” backstage at the taping last night from Huntsville, Alabama. PWInsider.com notes that he didn’t really bring up the release of his brother Matt and didn’t really bring him up period on the show. As noted previously, he will be appearing on the Sept. 8 broadcast of the show.
