An interesting thing that should be noted is that while promoting SmackDown, FOX mentioned that current Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be a part of SmackDown when the show comes to their Network.
Now it’s possible that Lesnar’s name was only used to hype SmackDown coming to their Network, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Lesnar becomes a part of SmackDown later this year as various reports have suggested that WWE will have some of their top RAW stars move to SmackDown to help with the TV viewership.
@WrestlingInc Fox was promoting Smackdown before the Nascar race. They mentioned Brock Lesnar to be seen on Smackdown starting October 2019. Possible the WWE is just using his name to bring interest to their product. Interesting to see if he stick around or appears on #SDLive
