BRISTOL, Conn., May 27 (UPI) -- An unedited, unaired, episode of WWE Smackdown has been leaked to the public, spoiling upcoming plot-points for the scripted event and revealing candid interactions between personalities.

The leak is the latest security breach for the WWE, after a script of an episode of WWE RAW went public and an anonymous Reddit user continues to gain increased notoriety for his ability to accurately predict the outcomes of pay-per-view events.

The unedited video shows mistakes by performers, un-enhanced crowd noises and off-the-record conversations. At one point, broadcaster Michael Cole asks WWE Chairman Vince McMahon if he can change the verbiage of his commentary, to which McMahon seemingly says no as Cole submissively responds, "OK...yes sir...yes sir...OK, I've got it sir."

The video was quickly pulled from YouTube, but remains readily available online.
