10 Behind the Scene photos you need to see from SmackDown's Premiere on FOX
Last week was one of the most historic ones for WWE as we witnessed the debut episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX. Being one of the most anticipated episodes of weekly WWE TV, numerous legends were advertised to appear in what was also the 20th-anniversary episode of the blue brand.
In a show filled with excitement throughout the two hours, we saw the crowing of a new WWE Champion in Brock Lesnar and a massive debut in the form of former UFC Champion Cain Velasquez. In addition to that, we also witnessed the return of the Brahma Bull, The Rock, to SmackDown.
Well, Friday Night SmackDown's premiere is in the history books now, and WWE.com has released some very interesting "Behind the scenes" pictures from the show. In this article, let's take a look at ten of those and find out how the atmosphere was backstage!
#10 The calm before the Storm
As mentioned earlier, last week on SmackDown, we saw one of the most shocking appearances in the blue brand's history as the former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez made his way to the ring to take down the newly crowned WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
Lesnar had viciously attacked Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik on the previous RAW, but no one was expecting Mysterio to bring such a massive back-up. Lesnar has a deep history with Velasquez, who was the one to defeat the Beast Incarnate in a first-round TKO and take the UFC Heavyweight Title from him.
#9 Some Viking Love
One half of the Viking Raiders, Erik looks to be one of the most dangerous men in WWE when he comes out along with Ivar to wrath havoc on their opponents inside the ring. But this warrior has a soft side as well, as visible in the picture above.
Eric married fellow WWE Superstar Sarah Logan last year. Sarah was a part of the Riot Squad, but is currently lost in the mix. Let's hope WWE keeps these two love-birds on the same brand.
