SmackDown Live is officially heading to FOX in the future. We have compiled a number of changes that WWE is expected to make for the new Network.
Some of the principle announcements or rumors we’ve heard in regards to FOX taking SmackDown Live is that WWE might be together with an extra hour to the show, changing the air dates from Tuesdays to Fridays.
If this is to be believed, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio discussed how WWE is also harassed to take care of the changes all over WrestleMania week.
This is because of WrestleMania week typically comprises the PPV itself, NXT: TakeOver, Raw and the Hall of Fame.
Here is what Meltzer had to say:
“I wonder about the idea of a SmackDown Live on a Friday before WrestleMania. I guess you could do that as the go-home show Obviously the NXT [TakeOver] will move to Saturday and the Hall Of Fame would move to Thursday or Tuesday, I’m going to guess Thursday because if it’s on Tuesday everyone’s going to go home and it will die.”
This would however be a topic for the reason that post-WrestleMania SmackDown Live can also be days excluding Raw or the Hall of Fame, that implies a good portion of the objective marketplace would have left.
Meltzer moreover speculated that the announce team itself might simply get a shake-up:
“I don’t know what those changes will be but I wouldn’t be surprised if the announcers change. You know? Because usually when they do those things they always think of the announcers and probably maybe they’ll do those cosmetic things that they do, they’ll move the announcers to a different spot, they’ll shoot different angles.”
Finally, Meltzer moreover addresses a conceivable set change for the show:
“I think that they’ll try to give certainly SmackDown a complete overhaul in looks because that’s what they like to do when they go to a new station.”
“For SmackDown I think that last 6 months or so before the move is done I think they’ll all be brainstorming on how can we change it, let’s give it a facelift, let’s give it some changes.”
