SmackDown Live Guest Star Announced, Post-WrestleMania Ticket Sales, Lince Dorado "205 Live" Profile

- As seen above, WWE has put out a package video for another of their Cruiserweights, Lince Dorado. Billed from Puerto Rico, Dorado is known as "The Golden Lynx of Lucha Libre" and is expected to be one of the major players in WWE's 205 Live. He also participated in WWE's first Cruiserweight Classic tournament, defeating Mustafa Ali in the first round, then being eliminated by Rich Swann in the second round.

- For the foreseeable future, WWE is looking to do package ticket deals with their "Big 4" PPVs (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series). This includes tickets to not only the PPV, but NXT, Raw, and SmackDown Live, as well. As of right now, the Raw after WrestleMania has already sold out and SmackDown is not far behind in ticket sales. Typically, the shows right after WrestleMania receive some of the highest ratings of the year, thanks to new stories and new call-ups from NXT.

- WWE announced that "Pop culture sensation" Sophia Grace will appear on this week's SmackDown Live, after an invitation from Nikki Bella. Apparently, the two were "on set" together and Nikki had such a great time that she invited Sophia to SmackDown Live. Sophia initially found fame on Ellen, when she sang a cover of Nikki Minaj's Super Bass, which went viral. She has since found fame on YouTube, in movies, and by recording a number of singles.
