Brock Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston Set For WWE SmackDown On FOX Premiere

FOX is helping promote the brand during its various sports broadcasts in hopes of increasing ratings when the show gets to the network. There is a one-hour “blue carpet” special scheduled before the big debut.

The belief is that it will be a new era for the company as it will be the start of SmackDown being viewed as the “A” show ahead of Monday Night RAW. 

WWE Hall of Famers Kurt Angle, Lita, Mick Foley, Booker T, Trish Stratus, Goldberg, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Mark Henry, Ric Flair, and Sting are advertised to appear. 

The October 4th show takes place from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
