WWE’s network partnership with FOX is hitting a bit of a tricky situation in October, and that will call for SmackDown to move for a couple of weeks. This isn’t the first time that WWE faced a situation where they had to move due to other sports getting in the way, but SmackDown will have to make considerations for Major League Baseball.

According to a report from PW Insider, WWE will move SmackDown to FS1 on October 15th and October 29th. As of this writing, only two weeks are seeing this move.

Due to Major League Baseball coverage, FOX will be bumping Friday Night Smackdown to FS1 on Friday 10/15 and Friday 10/29.

WWE will likely bring something special during those weeks, because they really need to make it known that they are switching channels for a night. Hopefully, this doesn’t happen very often, but Major League Baseball’s advertising dollars are obviously higher than WWE’s blue brand.
