WWE has announced that they will air an encore presentation of Friday Night SmackDown tonight at 8 pm eastern on FOX.
Last night’s show kicked off with Brock Lesnar attacking Roman Reigns, The Usos, and several WWE officials. That led to Adam Pearce announcing a storyline suspension to explain his absence from TV for the next few months.
Tonight’s encore episode will also include a “special look at WWE Crown Jewel,” according to WWE.com.
WWE airs encore episodes every week on FS1 but the move to FOX this week is unusual and could likely affect the rating for AEW Dynamite that airs in the same timeslot on TNT. Game 7 of the Astros-Red Sox ALCS was scheduled for tonight but the series wrapped up last night so FOX needed something fo fill in time tonight.
