Fox Sports executives attend Smackdown Live

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated tweeted that Fox Sports executives attended last night’s WWE Smackdown Live taping in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.

Deitsch noted that Eric Shanks, Jacob Ullman and Fox personality Colin Cowherd were all sitting front row for the taping last night.

As reported back in January by Variety, Fox Sports was among the many potential suitors for WWE TV rights when the company’s current deal with NBC Universal expires next year.

  1. So all this seems telegraphed, Reigns wins vs. Lesnar at WM, then most likely will face Strowman at Summerslam. Don’t like it at all though, because Strowman vs. Reigns sounds like a horrible in ring match. Actually, Strowman vs. anyone doesn’t really seem exciting. I’m hoping he’ll be kept at midcard, but I doubt it.

  2. Strowman vs. anyone doesn’t really seem exciting????? That’s like saying the Shield vs. the Wyatt Family sucked.

  3. It’s an opinion, sorry you don’t agree, but a lot of people do, so we will see what happens. To me he’s just doing what Diesel did 25 years ago, or what Big Show did 15-20 years ago. Big man knocking things over…and plowing through the roster. But he doesn’t have any deep storyline, and he’s not going to put on a wrestling clinic, so the appeal is just, he’s big.

  4. Dana is really starting to look desperate he keeps saying stuff but really knows nothing yet i think all this is gonna do is make the wwe deal bigger and thats not a good thing for him

  5. That’s just a trigger word. I never said he “sucked,” he’s just not what I personally gravitate towards in a wrestler. He’s good at what he’s been told to do (by the writers), but he doesn’t do the best promos, and if he is in the ring with someone who is a great wrestler, I’d worry they would have to do most of the work. Reigns isn’t exactly my favorite either, but I think he’s just a little better than Strowman. That being said, I don’t even think a three way match at Mania would be good .

  6. Isn’t that the same Colin Cowherd that once referred to wrestling fans as “booger eaters”. He also didn’t have kind words for Eddie Guerrero either.

  7. maybe bur Vince is gonna do everything he can to keep him and Dana is acting like its a done deal plus why would brock go at 41 when he didn’t go at 37 not to mention the fact that if his contract rumors are true and his full contract wont end till august then by the time he gets in to the testing pool and sits out half a year he well actually be closer to 42 i just dont see it
