WWE to celebrate 15 years of Smackdown on October 10

WWE will be celebrating Smackdown’s 15 year anniversary with a special episode on Friday, October 10.

Smackdown made its debut on UPN as a weekly episode on August 26, 1999, after airing a one-off special also on UPN at the end of April of that same year.

The show moved to The CW, MyNetworkTV, and now SyFy in its 15 year history and had many special shows in its run, with probably the September 13, 2001 episode topping them all.

That episode of the show, airing live after the taping on September 11 was canceled due to the terrorist attacks in the United States, was the first live sports and entertainment to be held in the U.S. after the attacks.

WWE has produced a total of 787 episodes of Smackdown as of last week.
