WWE is bringing another night of action to FOX tonight for SmackDown, but that is not the only show going on within the ThunderDome. The Superstar Spectacle is also going to be taped this morning.
Ringside News has learned WWE is using some resources from their blue brand’s creative team for the Superstar Spectacle special. The event will start at 9:30 AM EST today, and it will be around two hours long.
The SmackDown crew must then reset and focus on tonight’s show. It is going to be a very busy day with several people inside the ThunderDome for the first time as well.
SmackDown’s script also has the possibility of changing throughout the day. This is typical for WWE tapings, but an additional morning event definitely complicates things.
Rey Mysterio, Charlotte Flair, AJ Styles, Bayley, The New Day, Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode, and Ricochet. Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair will also be a part of the special. There was also a hope that Drew McIntyre will be cleared to make his return during Friday morning’s event as well.
We will have full coverage of WWE’s Superstar Spectacle. This special event, slated to air on January 26th, is also planned to kickoff a new series for WWE. There is currently no official announcement about when an ongoing weekly series is planned to start.
