5 things WWE SmackDown Live should bring back on FOX
After being publicized for months on end, SmackDown Live's big debut on FOX is almost upon us. The first episode of the blue show on FOX will air on October 4th, and is being heavily promoted by WWE, with a string of WWE legends all set to appear at the show.
Over the course of the past several months, the eventual FOX debut of SmackDown Live has given rise to rumors and speculations as to what kind of product WWE will present going forward. A while ago, WWE moved Roman Reigns, possibly the biggest star of the current generation, to the blue show, in what could be perceived as the company gearing up for the show's move to FOX.
If one looks back at the history of SmackDown Live, they'll notice a string of elements that are unique to the show. Let's take a look at five elements from the past that WWE could bring back on SmackDown Live, to entice the fans.
#5 The SmackDown Six
Back in 2002, when SmackDown was on the verge of getting canceled due to poor ratings, the lead writer Paul Heyman bagged a bunch of Superstars and turned them into major attractions on the show. For the next several months, these six Superstars produced a string of quality matches and engaging storylines, which ultimately helped SmackDown stay on TV.
Edge, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, Eddie & Chavo Guerrero were referred to as The SmackDown Six. The blue show could benefit from a modern-day SmackDown Six, consisting of six promising stars from the present roster. This move will not only give those six stars a push to the top, it will also give the show its own unique identity, similar to how it did in the old days.
