The legendary wrestler ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin who was recently honoured by customized jerseys and frames from Madison Square Garden officials is all set to make a spectacular appearance on SmackDown’s upcoming debut episode at Fox networks. Notably, the Hall of Famer Steve Austin is not the only one who is going to be invited as a special guest in the upcoming SmackDown’s episode. Legends and Hall of Famers like Mick Foley, Kurt Angle, Bill Goldberg, Trish Stratus, Mark Henry, and Jerry Lawler, Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, Booker T, and Lita will also be the part of this historic night.
WWE decided to move towards the Fox networks after the company has recently completed its three-year deal with USA broadcasters. The SmackDown Live roster will now be broadcasted on Fridays and not Tuesdays. NXT will take over the slot instead. The company has even revealed the new logo of the brand new blue brand event. The Stone Cold Austin himself unveiled the new look of SmackDown Live roster on his official Twitter handle last month.
On the match front, veteran giant Brock Lesnar is going to fight with the babyface Kofi Kingston in the debut of SmackDown Live roster on Fox. The former Universal Champion who has not been seen in action since SummerSlam 2019 at Scotiabank Arena is now coming back with a bang. The star New Day member Kingston who was quite happy after defeating The Revival and The Viper Randy Orton in last week’s SmackDown’s episode is now going to lose his sleep.
Apart from the much-anticipated fight of Lesnar and Kingston, the enthralling ladder-match between arch-rivals Shane McMahon and Big O Kevin Ownes has also been scheduled for the upcoming roster. While the RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will also fight in the event in a tag-team match. Lynch will team up with old-foe Charlotte Flair in order to take on SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley and Sasha Banks.
Whole WWE Universe can’t wait for the brand new SmackDown Live roster starting on October 4th, 2019 where all the wrestling superstars will appear under one roof.
