SmackDown is on FOX weekly, but that is going to change later this month due to previous commitments. FOX Sports has a lot more going on than just WWE and Big Ten Football draws a huge number.
It was confirmed today that WWE’s blue brand will be moving their show to FS1 on October 25th. This will only be a one-week solution to a scheduling conflict as Sports Illustrated’s Jimmy Traina explained the reasoning.
TV Guide has confirmed that SmackDown will air on FS1 that week at 8pm ET. SmackDown will air from the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri that night with the final blue brand episode before WWE Crown Jewel.
Hopefully, this won’t be a huge recurring issue in the future. It’s bound to happen every now and then with so many things going on in the world of FOX Sports.
