Vince McMahon had pulled all of his cards for the major occasion and The Rock’s affirmation, the WWE has pulled an ace in the bunch. The very first episode of SmackDown on Fox was constantly predicted to be a party where all of the superstars of present and past come into the premiere. Even US President Donald Trump was rumored 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 installment of Friday Night SmackDown.
‘FINALLY…I return home to my WWE universe. This FRIDAY NIGHT, I will go back for our introduction of SMACKDOWN! LIVE on FOX,’ The Rock stated in his conversation.
‘There is no greater name than #thepeopleschamp. And there is no place like home. Tequila on me after the series.’
Rather than having the man who coined the 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.
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.
