#3 SmackDown Live could have more star power when it moves over to FOX
WWE signed a 5-year deal worth $205 Million per year with FOX on June 2018 to air SmackDown Live on their network from October 2019.
The blue brand will move to Fridays starting from October 4th, 2019, and will air live on Fox.
FOX has been vocal with WWE to increase their ratings of SmackDown Live before the show moves over to their network. That could be the reason behind Roman Reigns getting drafted to the SmackDown on this year’s superstar shake-up.
But things haven’t changed a bit for the show as it still struggles to maintain a decent rating. Having Brock Lesnar on the roster when the show moves to FOX could be a real boost for the blue brand as it could open the door for a potential clash between a man who is to make his SmackDown debut this Tuesday.Published 02 Jun 2019, 13:45 IST
