• FOX Asks WWE To Make Big Creative Changes On SmackDown Live

SmackDown Live will move to the FOX Network in 2019 and will begin airing on Friday nights.

According to the Wrestling Observer, FOX has already begun preparing for this move.

FOX is planning to introduce a Thursday through Sunday Sports block in 2019, with WWE taking the spot on Friday night.

With that being said, FOX officials have reportedly demanded WWE to begin airing more ‘Pro-Wrestling’ on SmackDown instead of comedy segments.

By doing that, FOX officials are planning to have “their sports people on the different shows heavily promote it”.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
