When WWE finally makes it’s debut on FOX it will be a milestone episode of SmackDown taking center stage on October 4th.
The premiere episode of WWE SmackDown Live on the FOX network will be the show’s 20th Anniversary special, and will take place at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
WWE made the announcement via an official press release, “SmackDown has been delivering action-packed, family-friendly programming for two decades, and we look forward to entertaining generations to come as we begin this next chapter on FOX,” Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO commented.
WWE is stacking the card for the show, and a host of legends, and WWE Hall of Famers, will be on hand as WWE and FOX usher in a new era.
WWE Hall of Famers Kurt Angle, Lita, Mick Foley, Booker T, Hulk Hogan, Trish Stratus, Goldberg, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Mark Henry, Ric Flair, and Sting are advertised to appear.
With the move to FOX, which could also include NXT airing on FOX as well, WWE will cast a much bigger audience net as FOX is currently in 35% more homes than USA Network, which is home to WWE RAW.
