The show is taped Tuesday nights and broadcast Friday nights. Their 11 September 2001 event was canceled due to the terrorist attacks. On 13 September 2001, Smackdown was broadcast live as the first major and televised event since the attacks as thousands were in attendance. The ring ropes are usually blue for the Smackdown shows but were red, white and blue for this night; these colors were commonly used during the 1980s. See more
