Here are some off-air notes from the August 8th episode of SmackDown Live:
* The bottom bowl was filled and upper deck was about 80% full but tarped off on the hard camera side.
* Before the show went live, Aiden English teamed with The Ascension to take on The Hype Bros & Luke Harper. “We want Harper” chants most of the match. Harper got the win for his team.
* Cheers for Jinder Mahal were massive because he was born in Calgary.
* Nearly half the crowd left before 205 Live started.
* AJ Styles & Nakamura defeated Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin in the main event dark match.
