The very first episode of SmackDown on Fox was always predicted to be a party where all of the superstars of present and past come into the premiere. Even US President Donald Trump was rumoured for a guest on SmackDown at a time. But after much speculation, it’s been confirmed that Dwayne’The Rock’ Johnson will be making a comeback into the WWE about the very first instalment of Friday Night SmackDown.
Vince McMahon has attracted all of his cards for the significant occasion and The Rock’s affirmation, and the WWE has pulled an ace in the bunch.
‘FINALLY…I return home in my WWE universe. This FRIDAY NIGHT, I will go back for our introduction of SMACKDOWN!
‘There is no greater honour than #thepeopleschamp. And there is no place like home. Tequila on me after the series.’
Rather than having the man who coined this word’SmackDown’ (The Rock) on the series would have been a travesty.
However, The Rock isn’t the only WWE legend creating an appearance on SmackDown this week. You will find a host of new titles coming to the WWE for its maximum of SmackDown on Fox.
The huge episode will be headlined with a WWE Championship game involving Kofi Kingston and Brock Lesnar.
The WWE Universe will even watch Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch group up against Bayley and Sasha Banks at a tag team game while Roman Reigns confronts Erick Rowan.
Another huge stake battle will see Shane McMahon participate in a ladder game against Kevin Owens in which the failure must leave WWE.
