Report: 2 Incidents At Recent WWE Tapings Revealed

Kevin Dunn was not amused...

Back on May 25 and May 26, WWE taped episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown for the next two weeks. The company will again film programming this week as tonight's Raw and Friday's SmackDown will be taped tonight, while next week's main roster shows will be recorded tomorrow. 

Raj Giri at WrestlingInc. revealed the recent tapings did not go on without a hitch, however. While cutting a promo on Raw, MVP addressed the crowd and referred to them as NXT Superstars. This quickly drew the ire of WWE Executive Vice President Kevin Dunn, who interrupted The Franchise Playa on the PA system and instructed him to refer to the audience as Performance Center Recruits. 

This isn't the first time the PA System has been used at the tapings, as the company recently told the NXT wrestlers in the crowd to be more enthusiastic for Raw as those in attendance were reportedly "somewhat sluggish" while watching Main Event and 205 Live. 

Otis vs. King Corbin was also reshot as WWE wanted Mr. Money in The Bank to take four Spinebusters from his opponent.
