In a press release issued by FOX Sports, the network announced that there will be not one, but two shows to serve as lead-ins for the October 4 debut of Smackdown on FOX.
The first one is the already-announced Smackdown Greatest Hits which will air on FOX on Friday, September 27 at 8PM ET. The one-hour show will be hosted by The Miz and Charlotte Flair as they run down the most memorable moments from 20 years of Smackdown shows.
The second show is titled WrestleMania’s Legendary Moments and will be narrated by none other than 16-time champion John Cena. This will air also on FOX on Sunday, September 29 after the NFL on FOX game.
On October 4, FOX will also host a Friday Night Smackdown Kickoff show which starts at 7:30PM ET with a blue carpet arrival at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California. The show is expected to be filled with A-list celebrities and athletes who will help usher a new era of WWE on FOX. Apart form airing on FOX, Smackdown will also be available to stream live on the FOX Sports app.
