After hyping it for over a week, the Triple H 25th anniversary celebration took place on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center on FOX.
The segment featured WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and a surprise appearance by WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
The segment ran for over 20 minutes and through a commercial break. For a full recap of the segment, click here.
It turns out that the segment went longer than originally planned.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select reports that the segment did go over time as it was originally set to go about 10 minutes, but ended up going 20 minutes as they filmed it.
Luckily for the company, it was a pre-taped segment and WWE was able to fit it into the show without going over the scheduled broadcast time.
