This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown continued the build for WrestleMania 38 in addition to featuring the official main roster arrival of Pete Dunne, who is now going by the name, Butch.

Pwinsider.com reports that “a lot of segments got shifted and changed over the course of the day as Vince McMahon was very hands on with today's taping” including the brawl with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair at the end of the show. WWE actually pre-taped the segment earlier in the day and inserted it into the broadcast.

It was said there was a lot of concern over Big E over the course of the night after he landed on his head after taking a german suplex from Ridge Holland in a tag team match. Unfortunately, the former WWE Champion suffered a broken neck as a result of the spot.
