Yes it's no secret. They been doing it for years. It's so fucking pathetic and a big insult to everyone's intelligence. I honestly don't understand why they do it. They honestly HAVE to think people are dumb.

I never watch SD because of that, it's annoying as hell.

If you watch Smackdown regularly, then you kinda get used to it, but there are times where WWE doesn't even try to hide the fact that they use canned pops.

Ah well, it's no different to a comedy show you see on TV and they add fake laughs or audiences etc.. it doesn't really matter as what's going on is what matters, which in the case of smackdown is not much lately.

Honestly, Smackdown needs to be scrapped completely and revamped into a new show with a new look, name and the lot, it's been stale for way too long now and I'm surprised they're still actually clinging on to it, I guess it's more so because it became a brand more than anything.

Raw is all that's needed, but a fresh new show in replace of Smackdown could really do some great things.

The perspicuous employing of shoddily-dubbed pops on Smackdown is fundamentally WWE's equivalent of the "Plato's Cave" parable about shadows on the cave from his Republic. We are perceiving not actual people through their reactions, but rather a concoction, shadows to listen to as representative of people. Yet rather than shadows on the wall of the cave we are confronted with hairdryers as Punkholic notes.

They aren't as bad as they were a couple of years ago, when guys like Khali would come out to Austin-like pops. I remember they even dubbed fake laughter over Sheamus' corny jokes a couple of times during his horrible run in 2012 and it wasn't even good fake laughter, it sounded like 3 or 4 women laughing in a small room.
