This week’s episode of WWE Smackdown was taped tonight from the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. WWE began taping Smackdown soon after WWE Main Event tapings ended.

Diverticulitis could be a life-threatening condition in some cases and wrestling personalities such as “The Beast Incarnate” Brock...
According to a report earlier today from SEScoops, Jerry Lawler has been hospitalized for the past several days after being diagnosed with diverticulitis.
Diverticulitis is a colon disease where pouches form in the wall of the colon and become inflamed or infected. It happens when feces gets trapped in the pouches and bacteria grows in them to cause inflammation or infection.
