WWE celebrates 1,000th episode of Smackdown tonight

WWE will celebrate Smackdown’s 1000th episode tonight with a special live broadcast from Washington, D.C.

Smackdown made its debut on UPN on April 29, 1999 and since then the show has aired on The CW, MyNetworkTV, SyFy, and eventually on USA Network. Next year, Smackdown moves to its largest home yet on FOX after WWE signed an agreement with the network giant this year for five years worth over $1 billion.

Tonight’s show will see several former WWE Superstars return for the big occasion including Edge, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Torrie Wilson, Teddy Long, Vickie Guerrero, Michelle McCool, and the reunion of Evolution including Triple H, Batista, Ric Flair, and Randy Orton.

Only two matches have been announced for tonight’s broadcast which include Rey Mysterio vs Shinsuke Nakamura and The Miz vs Rusev.
