The following contains a spoiler for Sunday’s WWE Bragging Rights pay-per-view main event.
Though this week’s SmackDown! is largely built around The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, another key development took place in relation to one of the main events for this weekend’s big event.
According to correspondents, a match was held at the SmackDown! taping with implications for the seven man SmackDown! team (which faces Team RAW at the PPV). The stipulation for the SmackDown! match was that if the team of Cryme Tyme, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre and Eric Escobar lost to another five-man team, the other wrestlers would replace them as partners for Kane and Chris Jericho.
The other team–Matt Hardy, The Hart Dynasty, R-Truth and Finlay–won, so Sunday’s match is now as follows:
Team RAW (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston, Big Show, Mark Henry and Cody Rhodes) vs. Team SmackDown! (Chris Jericho, Kane, R-Truth, The Hart Dynasty, Finlay, Matt Hardy)
