The first match has been announced for WWE Friday Night SmackDown and it’s a big one as it will involve top talent.
This has been the only confirmed match for this show, which is expected to be loaded as it kicks off the latest Draft of the company.
It also marks Rollins’ first match since the controversial finish in his latest match. This contest took place the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.
This is where Rollins retained his Universal Title over Bray Wyatt. The contest ended in a match stoppage once Rollins hit Wyatt in the head with a sledgehammer.
The draft will start on the SmackDown episode in Las Vegas on Friday, October 11. It will continue for RAW as the second night of the draft will then take place on Monday, October 14 in Denver.
The reason behind doing the draft is a way to freshen up both shows both with talent and in other ways during October.
This is a way to capitalize on the exposure as it’s the second episode of SmackDown on FOX.
