WWE Smackdown is coming up with a historic edition, next week. It will mark the 1000th episode of the show. Smackdown has been the second longest running weekly episodic television show in the history. Only Monday Night Raw is the leading show in front of the blue brigade. Nonetheless, they will present a mouth-watering show to us without a doubt.
Smackdown 1000 is set to take place at the nation’s capital i.e. Washington DC. The Capital One Arena will be the host of the show. WWE has already hyped up the episode announcing multiple announcements. Evolution reuniting will be the headliner of the show. The infamous faction comprised of Ric Flair, Randy Orton, Triple H, and Batista will be together.
This might be the very last time that we’d see the faction getting back together as a team. Also, names like Rey Mysterio and Edge will return to the show that once belonged to them. Additional reports suggest that a massive surprise might be waiting for the fans. One of the franchise players is coming back on Smackdown to shock the world.
None but The Rock is the name in concern for now. Reports are out that WWE has contacted The Rock to appear on this special occasion. No such confirmation is available whether he’d make an appearance. But updates are positive about him being a major attraction on this night.
Originally, The Rock was the one to give the Smackdown name to the B-show of the WWE. Vince McMahon drafted him to this show from Monday Night Raw to give a boost to the TV ratings. So this makes only suitable if The Rock can grace us with his presence to ‘lay the smaketh down’ on somebody.
Check out the updates from stillrealtous.com about the potential appearance by The Rock,
“The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE officials are trying to get The Rock to make an appearance on the show. SmackDown was originally named after The Rock’s catchphrase, and he used to call it “The Rock’s show.”
WWE.com recently presented a list of the top 15 superstars to carry the Smackdown brand. The Rock stood at the number one spot in this list. This might be a hint of the solid surprise waiting for us on October 16th. The Great One could finally be back home for one night.
For now, WWE has confirmed names like Edge, Michelle McCool, Teddy Long, Vickie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio and The Undertaker for the show. There will be two tag team matches on Smackdown 1000. AJ Styles & Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz & Samoa Joe and Charlotte Flair, Asuka & Naomi vs Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and The Ilconics are these two matches.
