WWE is doing a big RAW Reunion next week and there are a lot of Superstars expected on that show. As it turns out, this big event might actually be jumping the gun on an idea that they had for SmackDown Live’s debut on Fox.
Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE was actually planning a big reunion show for SmackDown’s debut on Fox in October. However, now that they’re doing one for RAW there might not be much of a point.
“Here’s the thing, SmackDown’s 20th Anniversary is coming up very soon. SmackDown is gonna have their first show on Fox very soon. The original idea for the first SmackDown on Fox was essentially this show. Now I suppose they could do it twice, but after doing it in July coming back and doing the same type of a show by bringing all the legends back in October — you know, I guess you could do it just because it’s the debut on Fox and this is Network television and it’s kinda weird to do it that way so I don’t know if they’ll do another one like that.”
Meltzer continued by saying that The Rock isn’t going to be on RAW’s reunion, but he very well might show up. That way if they can get The Rock on SmackDown they might not have to load the show up with legends because they already pulled in The Great One for an appearance.
We’ll have to see what WWE plans to do once they debut on Fox, but odds are they’ll plan something big for October 4th.
