Smackdown gets live “3rd hour” on WWE Network with talk show


Smackdown is somewhat getting a third hour in the form of a talk show on the WWE Network starting tonight at 10PM EST.

Titled Talking Smack, the show will feature exclusive interviews and analysis but no hosts or any other information have been announced. It’s likely that the same team that does the Raw and Smackdown pre-shows on the Network will also be doing this extra hour every week for the blue brand.

A live weekly episode will add an extra 52 hours of original content on the WWE Network per year. WWE had a similar show following Tough Enough on USA Network with Byron Saxton hosting the 30 minute Tough Talk.
