The recent WWE broadcast of the final SmackDown before the King and Queen of the Ring 2024 was marred by technical issues, much to the chagrin of fans who quickly noticed and criticized the problems. The issues primarily revolved around backstage segments and the accompanying audio quality, which left much to be desired. These problems first came to light during the post-Bianca Belair match segment, where interactions between wrestlers like Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae were hindered by muffled audio, making it difficult for viewers to follow the dialogue.

Similar audio issues persisted during the backstage exchange between Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton, raising further concerns among the audience. Despite the global accessibility of WWE on Fox’s X account, allowing everyone to tune in, the audio glitches remained evident to all.

The exact reasons behind these technical hiccups were unclear, but the criticism centered not only on the live occurrence but also on the fact that the problems persisted even during the delayed broadcast at the usual air time worldwide. Fans on X expressed disappointment that WWE had not rectified the audio issues during the hours between the live taping and the delayed airing of SmackDown.

While viewers in certain regions may have missed out on these glitches, many were able to witness the audio troubles firsthand, especially during key segments like Randy Orton’s promo, where the mic quality was notably better. However, the challenges continued during the backstage segment involving Bayley and Nia Jax, with Nia having to raise her voice to compensate for the ongoing audio issues. Despite these setbacks, fans eagerly awaited the King and Queen of the Ring 2024, hoping that WWE would address and resolve these technical difficulties for future broadcasts.
