• Actor Kevin Smith Says WWE Cancelled His SmackDown Appearance After He Appeared On AEW Dynamite
During a recent edition of The Rich Eisen Show, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho and actor Kevin Smith talked about the debut episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT.
Kevin revealed that he was scheduled to appear on WWE’s SmackDown debut on FOX last Friday, but WWE cancelled his appearance after he appeared on AEW Dynamite’s debut on TNT last Wednesday.
Below is what Kevin said:
“You know how big it was? [AEW Dynamite premiere on TNT] It was big enough that… me and Jay were lucky enough to be involved, Chris invited us to be involved with the debut match on TNT. We were supposed to go do WWE, me and Jay, the very next day, which was Friday. Was it Friday? SmackDown.
And then the morning after… because we were on the AEW show, it trended, like, there was a lot of coverage and stuff. So, the next morning we were told that WWE was like, you can’t come on anymore, and they canceled us. They kicked me and Jay off the show, but not in a crazy way.”
