– On the occasion of the premiere of the new season, SmackDown issued a new entry video at the start of this week’s episode. In the new montage you can see the new figures of the show after the Draft, such as Seth Rollins, Bianca Belair or Street Profits, among others. You can see the video at the top of this news.
– WWE confirmed last night, during the Friday Night SmackDown recordings, that next week’s episode will air on FS1. It is not the first time that the SmackDown show has been transferred to FS1 for a Major League Baseball game. On October 25, 2019 it happened for the first time and the show was broadcast live on the East Coast and the West Coast. This was reflected in a notable decrease in viewership as the show registered 888,000 viewers, down almost 2 million from the previous week. It is likely that this time SmackDown will also be affected by the change of channel in terms of audience.
– Roman Reigns used a new move in his repertoire to beat Braun Strowman in the fight for the WWE Universal Championship. After applying the Spear without success, The Tribal Chief chose to apply a Guillotine Choke to get the victory by submission. It’s unclear if this will be a regular Roman Reigns maneuver from this point on.
– Bianca Belair did not make an appearance on the SmackDown show. However, both Triple H during the Kickoff Show and Corey Graves on the show spoke highly of her. It is expected to appear next week.
– Daniel Bryan returned to action on the last episode of SmackDown and was interrupted by Seth Rollins. Both came to blows until Bryan expelled his rival from the ring. Later, Rey Mysterio and Dominik appeared and Daniel Bryan left the place. There is speculation about a possible rivalry between Seth Rollins and Daniel Bryan.
– Several WWE Superstars made their appearance at ThunderDome. During the show you could see Mark Henry, Jeff Jarrett, Goldberg e incluso Brie Bella during the Daniel Bryan promo. About Goldberg, there was speculation about his return to television, but ultimately he was only seen on the ThunderDome screens.
