WWE Smackdown Preview: Crown Jewel Go-Home Show, Hogan & Flair to Appear


WWE Friday Night Smackdown returns to the Sprint Center in Kansas City this evening, in what will be the blue brand’s go-home show heading into WWE Crown Jewel next Thursday in Saudi Arabia.

A reminder, tonight’s show will not be airing on FOX as usual, but will instead air on FS1 due to the World Series. This is the final night of competition from Major League Baseball for the season, as far as both Raw and Smackdown are concerned.

It will be an all-hands-on-deck episode of the show, as both WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez are slated to appear in the final confrontation before their title match at Crown Jewel. Paul Heyman and Rey Mysterio, despite being on the Raw brand, will also be there.

Also announced is a special segment of MizTV with Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, a singles match between Nikki Cross and Mandy Rose, and a tag team match between Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of the New Day, and former Raw champions Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.

Make sure you join us for live coverage tonight kicking off at 8:00 PM ET.
