- Brock Lesnar, nor Stephanie McMahon were listed on internal rundowns for Smackdown. Stephanie's segment, much like Vince McMahon's random appearances of late, were at the top of the show.
- Titus O'Neil's segment was also not listed internally
- In case you wondered, WWE is still misspelling Ludwig Kaiser's name as Ludvig internally.
