WWE loads up Smackdown with big stars for FS1 episode


Friday Night Smackdown will air on FOX Sports 1 tonight instead of FOX due to the MLB game and WWE has loaded up the broadcast with some heavyweights.

WWE champion Brock Lesnar will be in the house and will be involved in a face-to-face segment with his Crown Jewel opponent Cain Velasquez. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will also be on the broadcast with Hogan joined by Reigns, Ali, and Shorty G while Flair is joined by Shinsuke Nakamura and King Corbin for a Miz TV segment.

Two matches have been set, with The New Day taking on Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode while Nikki Cross, the new number one contender for the Smackdown Women’s title, will take on Mandy Rose.

Smackdown will return to FOX next week.
