Smackdown Live delivered with a main event that gained critical praise. Fightful.com was able to find out who backstage helped with that match, and several others this week.
Mike Rotunda had double duty last night, as the established tag team competitor produced the Bludgeon Brothers squash of 3SK solo, while collaborating with Devon Hughes (D-Von Dudley) to produce the Bar vs. New Day Tag Team Contender Tournament Finals match that main evented.
Michael "PS" Hayes, WWE Hall of Famer, was tasked with producing a Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor advertised dark match main event on Monday, which we got no word if it actually happened. Hayes was also the producer for the Shinsuke Nakamura vs. R-Truth match on Tuesday Night's Smackdown.
TJ Wilson, formerly known as Tyson Kidd, drew the Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. IIconics producer duties, while Dave "Fit" Finlay ended up helping out with the Lana vs. Zelina Vega rematch that involved heavy interference towards the end of it.
While not necessarily known for his promos, Dean Malenko was the producer for the Miz segment that saw Byron Saxton trying to interview him, only to be attacked by longtime rival Daniel Bryan.
