Off-air WWE Smackdown taping notes

* Randy Orton & IC Champion Big Show defeated Daniel Bryan & Cody Rhodes in the dark match main event at Tuesday's WWE Smackdown TV taping in Grand Rapids, MI.

* The estimated crowd at tonight's Smackdown taping was 4,000 fans. The Van Andel Arena is generally set up for 11,000 for WWE, which prompted the company to push the fans to the opposite side of the hard camera to make the arena look more full.

* As noted earlier, FCW star Dean Ambrose defeated Josh Shields in the dark match before the Smackdown taping.
