Old School SmackDown Preview For Tonight

– WWE will present a special live edition of SmackDown tonight on SyFy at 8pm from the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia. The show will feature an “Old School” theme, with the following WWE Legends booked to appear:

Gene Okerlund, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Dusty Rhodes, Ted DiBiase Sr., Mick Foley, Sgt. Slaughter, Tony Atlas, Pat Patterson, Hillbilly Jim, Howard Finkel, Jimmy Hart, Mae Young and Roddy Piper.

No matches have been announced for the tapings, but WWE says punishment is in store for World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus after he hit referee Chad Patton with a Brogue Kick last week. WWE is teasing that John Laurinaitis may strip Sheamus of the title and award it to the #1 contender, Alberto Del Rio. Chad Patton told the WWE website over the weekend that he doesn’t believe that Sheamus has been punished enough yet for his attack.

The dark match main event is advertised as Mark Henry, Daniel Bryan and Cody Rhodes vs. Randy Orton, Sheamus and Big Show.

    Please bring Dean Ambrose on the SmackDown Roster or at least appear during this episode of SmackDown. Mick Foley being there completes this.

    With the exception of Mick Foley, none of those people had anything to do with Old School SmackDown.

      Exactly what I said.

      so true i was hoping they would have te old smackdown stage and logo just like with old school raw

  • pwnez

    I’m sorry but seeing the same old legends that we see pretty often isn’t that exciting. It’s obviously to promote the Legends House show but still. This will be the perfect time to debut Dean Ambrose though. Have him come out and trash the legends and/or Mick Foley.

    If Sheamus gets stripped of the title, I will not be happy at all.

    • Franll2507

      if Sheamus’ stripped, we riot !

    • Shambo

      i dont think he will get stripped.. didnt they say they want shemus to have a decent title run and they wanna make the brouge kick a lethal kick… kinda like when viki said edge cant use spear and taker cant use the hells gate…

      • Kaylyn Owens

        Something like that.

  • Brett Lane

    New World Champ!!!! Mick Foley

    The same stupid old school wrestlers, how about some new old school faces for a change.They have a where are they now page on wwe site, bring them out. The same old story, waste of time. Let me guess mae young will kiss or dance with someone?

  • Gurpz_3

    i hope the arena has the first smackdown entrance stage…..yeeeh i bet that wont happen…


      as much as i want that this is wwe we r talking about..lol

  • Aiii

    Just reading that Albert The River is the number one contendor is pissing me off to no end. We’re not done with Bryan yet Vince. Time to put the title back where it belongs. YES!

    Also, repair Bryan and AJ, they were comedy gold together.

    Stop killing every angle I like so quickly already, damnit!

    No Lesnar? He was the man on SD for a few good years once the Attitude Era ended.

  • therockisback

    Also this is a GREAT way to take the Strap off of the lame Sheamus. I see WWE handing the Title  to Del Rio and making a 3 Way between Bryan, Del Rio at Extreme Rules and Lamemus which will sadly end with Lamemus winning it back…

    i hope they use the old smackdown stage! like how it wuz back in 2000
