Former WWE Universal, NXT, and Intercontinental champion Finn Balor will be joining FOX Sports’ broadcast of the MLS All Star pre-game show tonight live from Orlando, Florida at 7:30PM ET on FS1.
FOX will be using WWE Superstars for promotions more often as time gets closer for Smackdown to move to the network starting in the beginning of October. Balor is not the first WWE star do to something similar for the network with FOX’s marketing machine getting ready to slide into high gear for the arrival of the blue brand.
The network has paid over $1 billion for the television rights of Smackdown, an agreement that will last at least five years. Smackdown will be produced by FOX Sports once the move happens.
