WWE will be presenting a unique Smackdown tonight live from two different locations as one part of the show will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, and one part will be live from the Rolling Loud festival at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
One of the two things announced so far for the show is a John Cena appearance in Cleveland as the 16-time champ will be in the house to address Universal champion Roman Reigns. The two will be meeting each other in the main event of SummerSlam next month in Las Vegas.
According to the Rolling Loud schedule, Smackdown will tape from the Ciroc Stage starting at 8PM until 8:45PM. It’s unclear how WWE will handle the simulcast and who will be where and what happens to those inside the arena when the broadcast is live from the Hard Rock Stadium. Both the Smackdown Women’s champion Bianca Belair and Carmella indicated that they will be at Rolling Loud and their title rematch will be taking place there.
Last week’s Smackdown pulled in the best number in many months and WWE will be hoping to add to that with the arrival of John Cena.
