As announced on tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, the show will be moving for one week only to FS1 due to the World Series taking precedence on the main FOX channel.
Next week’s show, the last before WWE Crown Jewel on Thursday, October 31, will feature Brock Lesnar going face-to-face with his opponent at the event, Cain Velasquez. We will also see Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair make an appearance ahead of their Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match.
Yep. Next Friday on @FS1 is going to be GOOD.
