Tonight is a HUGE and historic night for WWE.

Smackdown returns to network television, but this time it’s a big network; Smackdown debuts on FOX and they’re going all out for the premiere.

As we saw with RAW on Monday, WWE TV once again has pyro. Expect to see a lot of it on Smackdown tonight, which also has a new show opening, theme song, graphics, and commentary team (Michael Cole and Corey Graves). Smackdown Live, behind the scenes, is being overseen by Eric Bischoff.

Here’s what’s on tap for tonight’s big Friday Night Smackdown on FOX premiere:

  • Kofi Kingston defends the WWE Championship against “The Beast” Brock Lesnar.
  • Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon put their careers on the line in a Ladder Match.
  • Becky Lynch teams with Charlotte Flair to take on Sasha Banks and Bayley.
  • Roman Reigns seeks revenge as he goes one-on-one with Erick Rowan.

Also tonight, The Rock returns home to WWE and Smackdown.

Rock will be joined by WWE Hall of Famers and celebrities in a star-studded premiere. The festivities begin tonight at 6:30pm CT  when FOX hosts a “Blue Carpet” special.

Friday Night Smackdown airs LIVE tonight at 7pm CT on FOX.
