Looks like this one won't be WWE approved, either. We'll see how long this fan version stays up:
EDIT: Not long. Here's one from Dailymotion:
Feature bout: KOFI KINGSTON vs. HEATH SLATER To show you how important this show is as well as how far ahead of time it was taped, JOSH MATHEWS (uninjured) and SANTINO MARELLA (US Champion) provide commentary
Also on this show: a special look at BRODUS CLAY & THE FUNKADACTYLS, who have a special dance to teach all the Funkateers
Via the Video Vault, we look at previous famous dancing superstars!
In "The 3rd Degree," superstars are asked their favourite Olympic sport
We learn whether or not we should be bullies ... or STARs
And a very special Superstar lipdub which caused Tyler Reks to leave the WWE
SCOTT STANFORD may or may not be the voice of the voiceover
This show is rated TV-G.
I liked it! I will try to remember to DVR it from now on (as opposed to forgetting about it like I did yesterday).
I watched it, I think I am far beyond the age of the target audience though. What I found interesting was I noticed crowd blurring during the match, looked like the ring apron near the commentators, as well as some t-shirts in the crowd.

Yeah, they blurred out the WWE.com logo on the ring apron for sure. Maybe they don't want the show's demographic visiting the website?
Bummer, looks like Louisville doesn't get it locally or at least not on the channels I get thru DirecTV. The kids would have loved this.

I caught the second half of today's episode. Santino was doing amusing color commentary (and actually calling the match!) with Josh Matthews. Brodus Clay vs. Curt Hawkins was this week's match. The one kid-friendly aspect that stood out to me was the Funkadactyls were wearing a bit more clothing than usual (tank top-cut Funkasaurus t-shirts and full pants). Then there was a segment to end the show all about Rey Rey.
So I guess WWE did "rip off" Open Fight Night. But it seems like they did their stuff more for comedy. So it was really more like Open Mike Night, especially in Eve's case where there was no match at all.
