Veteran Confirmed For SmackDown 1000

While not many details are available about the show, WWE has still announced a number of big names for the upcoming SmackDown 1000 and another name has been confirmed for the episode.

According to reports from Pwinsider, the Big Red Monster Kane has been confirmed for the upcoming special. Since the Undertaker has already been announced for the event, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we see the Brothers of Destruction reuniting next week.

Apart from this, the company has announced that Evolution will be reuniting during the SmackDown 1000. Rey Mysterio’s return match has been announced for the show as well.

Cody Rhodes Vs. Willie Mack For NWA Title (Video)

We noted before how Cody Rhodes was scheduled to defend his NWA Worlds Championship for the first time against Willie Mack. Now the NWA has uploaded the full match between these two from the latest ROH Vegas tapings:

The match is more than 20 minutes long. It ends with Willie delivering a couple of stunners and trying to deliver a frog splash. Cody counters the splash and delivers the CrossRhodes for the win.

After this victory, Cody is now scheduled to defend the NWA title against Nick Aldis in a rematch from All In at the upcoming NWA 70th anniversary show.
