OOfficial Discussion Thread for: SmackDown on FOX (October 4, 2019)

Tonight on SmackDown: WWE begins serving an all new set of Corporate Overlords, ones with especially deep pockets, and correspondingly high expectations...

FOX wants Brock Lesnar, FOX gets Brock Lesnar... in fact, it is even quite possible that Brock Lesnar will be WWE Champion before the night is out, as he faces Kofi Kingston tonight (it is Brock's first match on free TV in over 15 years)... with all that sweet sweet FOX money, you might even see Brock -- you know? -- show up to work more than 12 weeks per year... at one point, it even sounded like things were moving fast on the "FOX also wants Cain Velasquez" front, but that is no longer the case (a surprise appearance by another MMA star would have been one way for Kofi to escape with his title)...

The Stunt Booking doesn't stop there....

In terms of in-ring, Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon strikes me as being even more likely to be compelling as hell.... it's a Ladder Match, with a mcguffin hanging over the ring, important legal stuff of some kind; don't overthink it, it amounts to whoever wins stays in WWE, and the other guy loses.... obvious play would seem to be to write Shane out for a while (via one of his trademark crazy bumps) and elevate KO into a major player.... but then again, it wasn't long ago that we were salivating over the idea of a "fired" KO showing up in NXT, so who knows?

WWE even altered the fabric of time and space so that tonight is the 20th Anniversary Special Episode for SD (even though said anniversary actually passed about 2 months ago).... an in-ring appearance by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be the stunt-i-est of the Stunt Casting and should be electrifying if ultimately meaningless (he declared himself officially done with physical activity in a wrestling ring during the press tour for his last movie).... plenty of other WWE legends will also be on hand (probably relegated more to backstage feelgoodery than major in-ring segments)... FOX is also lining up as many outside celebrities as they can to sit at ringside (they are in Los Angeles tonight, so there will be plenty), and in keeping with that theme, they are even running a Red Carpet show starting at 7:30pm (eastern, also on FOX)...

Two more marquee matches should pretty much round out the show (unless they decide to surprise us with a lengthy over-run): WWE's Horsewomen will be front and center, as the heel Boss & Hug Connection face Becky Lynch and Charlotte.... with Bayley's RAW title and Becky's SD Title up for grabs against Charlotte and Sasha Banks, respectively, AND with a Redraftening coming that is all but certain to put Becky and Charlotte both on Friday nights, there's a lot of moving parts here, and that is without pondering the possibility of the return of Ronda Rousey, because, again, FOX money.... and last but not least, Roman Reigns faces Erick Rowan tonight, but the real story will be the tenuous new alliance of Reigns and Daniel Bryan, and how they deal with (or fail to deal with) Rowan and his Bludgeon Buddy, Luke Harper...

As with RAW, a complete make-over is in store tonight.... but one thing that will be very familiar: Michael Cole and Corey Graves sticking together as WWE's apparent lead commentary team... Renee Young will also contribute in a hybrid "sideline reporter/analyst" role, as FOX amps up the vibe that this is more sport, less entertainment...

That is all. End communication...

The flOOr is yours, OO Nation. Don't wait till after 10pm to post, either. Pre-show previewing and prognosticating is certainly welcome. So discuss, debate, and rate!

Jazzed as fuck for this.

Will be in attendance as fan and as part of the Fox family.

It's been such an amazing and energetic week at Fox - got to see both Vince and Steph on site yesterday for different events.

And it's been great seeing a ton of 'lapsed wrestling fans' who are employees get back on the pro wrestling wagon as part of this....as well as new ones be made.

Referencing Burger King must now force Corbin to begin sneaking around silently backstage in order to provide food to people randomly.

My first thought during the opening segment was "why the fuck are they wasting the Rock's appearance on Baron Corbin?" but really, Corbin is kind of the perfect guy for the Rock and Becky to verbally tear to shreds. So I get it.

You just got Fiended, bro! It's been mentioned here before but agayn it'd be so dope if Bray pulled out some Brock on Cena ultraviolence, decimated him in the cage, and then just walked the fuck out/disappeared without pinning him for the title.

Or randomly put one of the FFH inhabitants on top of him and force the ref to do a three count.

Edit: Whelp, Shane's dead.

Was that the first time Huskus has ever actually spoke? It's usually just belches and burps.

No, he's spoken in most of the segments he's popped up in I think. At least some.

And I guess Shane isn't dead! Yet...

Yeah he talks though for some reason Huskus has a German accent in the vein of Augustus Gloop from Willy Wonka.

Huskus in the MuscleMan Dance video: https://youtu.be/nDD0RC0PKBM

Also, so, um, are we, like y'know, getting a sweet ladder match like that every SD from now on?

Welp, every time that I think I want Shane McMahon off of my TV, he goes and completely redeems himself with some shit like that. That frog splash through the ladder was fucking insane.

Well, not quite Cain Velasquez vs. Brock Lesnar but that's still an interesting car wreck if it ever happens.

I'm not sure this was worth slapping another major title on Lesnar?
