Smackdown Date: October 10, 2002 Location: America West Arena, Phoenix, Arizona Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re ten days away from No Mercy and the big question is Undertaker’s hand, which was broken last week.

205 Live – January 3, 2017: A Bad Gut Feeling

205 Live Date: January 3, 2017 Location: Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Auditorium, Jacksonville, Florida Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, Corey Graves, Austin Aries I’m starting to get attached to this show and a lot of that is due to Neville.
