As we noted a couple of weeks ago, Smackdown will have a new theme song tonight for their Thursday night return. The intro includes John Cena, Roman Reigns, and ends with Bray Wyatt.
I am told that the new theme song is called “Black and Blue” by CFO$. The show will also have new graphics. The logo has also been cleaned up and looks much slicker than before. Of course, as everyone knows by now, Jerry Lawler and Byron Saxton are now on Smackdown. They join Michael Cole at the announce table. I’m told that the commentary is better than before and there will be less banter and more focus on the action in the ring. We’ll see tonight if that’s the case. The company will put more emphasis on the show and it’s something that they pitched to SyFy when they asked about moving to Thursday nights so expect to see more important angles play out on Thursday night’s.
