The October 1st edition of SmackDown will be broadcast live from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. The show will mainly focus around the WWE Draft, as part one will be taking place on the blue brand. The first half of the WWE roster will be assigned to their respective brands throughout the broadcast. It should also be noted WWE have also teased that NXT will also be involved in the draft picks for RAW and SmackDown.
The show will also see the return of a Hall of Famer to SmackDown. Following his loss to Seth Rollins, Edge was taken away in an ambulance due to injuries caused by Rollins. Not content with the victory, The Architect has continued to provoke Edge. As a result, The Rated R Superstar has announced he will be at the October 1st SmackDown.
It should also be expected that Roman Reigns will address the events of Extreme Rules, where The Tribal Chief defeated “The Demon” Finn Balor. The end of the main event saw Balor fall off the top rope due to the corner breaking.
As Reigns has defeated “The Demon,” expect a follow up address to The Universal Champion’s next challenger Brock Lesnar. It has been announced by WWE that Lesnar will face Reigns at the upcoming WWE pay per view, Crown Jewel.
