WWE is going through a lot as of late as there will be various revolutionary steps coming in. NXT moves to USA Network whereas SmackDown will run on the FOX Network. Even Monday Night Raw will have a contract renewal with the USA Network from October onwards kicking off a new era in WWE TV programming. This might have caused a little chaos inside the broadcast team as we per a surprising advertisement.
WWE has sent out advertising to a few cable companies that did not match current WWE stories at all. Reports from ringsidenews.com suggested it seems like they copied and pasted an episode of SmackDown from November 11th, 1999 instead. The storylines and matches advertised for the show feature all the old school attitude era superstars.
Certain areas are seeing this bizarre description on their cable guide where the main event match featuring The Rock, Shane McMahon vs. Degeneration X. Edge would go one-on-one with Hardcore Holly whereas Kane will also be in attendance in the tag team match! This just can’t happen on the upcoming episode of SmackDown since most of them already retired.

The Rock is a megastar who has not wrestled in a full-fledged wrestling match in more than six years. Edge is a Hall of Famer whose career ended due to neck concussion whereas we don’t have clue where Holly is right now. Kane is also running a county as Mayor that will surely not allow him to wrestle on a weekly episode of SmackDown. So the source added how these ads created confusion in the cable,
“It’s all-out pandemonium on this episode of SmackDown. In the main event the unlikely team of Shane McMahon, The Rock, and Kane battle D-Generation X. What role will Stone Cold Steve Austin play in all of this? Edge goes one-on-one with Hardcore Holly.”

It is a huge botch which can shift the focus from the ongoing storylines. The man to blame for must have been sending out information for next weeks’ SmackDown Live. Hopefully, the officials will notice this and replace the announced lineups with suitable replacements that will start angles for Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in October.
