FOX Network Airing WWE SmackDown Encore Against Tonight's AEW Dynamite
A Saturday night SmackDown of sorts
WWE has announced that the FOX Network will air an encore of last night's SmackDown at 8 pm EST tonight, head to head with a live AEW Dynamite on TNT.
Also advertised for the Saturday night broadcast is a "special look" at Thursday's Crown Jewel pay-per-view.
WWE's write-up for the broadcast reads, "Brock Lesnar may have been indefinitely suspended by WWE Official Adam Pearce, but you'll get a second chance to witness The Beast's rampage on Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Bloodline when FOX airs an encore presentation of SmackDown with a special look at WWE Crown Jewel tonight at 8/7 C.
"WWE Crown Jewel featured a brutal and controversial showdown between Reigns and Lesnar, as well as a shocking Hell in a Cell Match between Edge and Seth Rollins, and a historic Triple Threat Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship. It's a special look at an event you don't want to miss.
"Watch the encore presentation of SmackDown with a special look at WWE Crown Jewel , tonight at 8/7 C on FOX."
The time slot was originally intended for a potential ALCS Game 7 between the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox. However, the Astros clinched the series in six games last night, leaving a gap in the programming line-up.
