Smackdown Date: April 25, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa Commentators: John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton Can we call this a go home show?

205 Live Date: April 18, 2017 Location: KFC Yum! Center, Louisville, Kentucky Commentators: Corey Graves, Tom Phillips For once, we’re actually addressing one of the major problems around here as TJ Perkins has become a third major name in the division.
