WWE’s move to Fox will mean plenty of changes are coming for SmackDown Live. One of those ideas is apparently going to include a new set and a throwback feel as well.

Nostalgia is paying off in a big way for WWE. They make a lot of money off of people remembering the kind of wrestling they used to love. Although WWE won’t be stepping back into the TV-14 mindset any time soon, it sounds like they might be giving off that appearance with a new/old set.

Brad Shepard reports that the current plan for WWE’s new SmackDown Live set is to feature a return of the SmackDown fist.

As I previously reported, a new set with an Attitude Era-feel is coming to #WWE #SDLive on Fox. I’m told the plan is for the new set to feature the return of the Smackdown fist. The fist is currently ready for use and in storage. #OYDKWS


The legendary fist is still tucked away in WWE’s warehouse and hasn’t been seen for a very long time. However, they could always bring it back even though they haven’t for many special episodes throughout the years.

Whether it is the original fist making a return or a new, lighter incarnation the idea is definitely piquing our interest.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
