The Wrap is reporting that SmackDown will remain LIVE on FOX in 2019. Below is what they posted:
“SmackDown on Fox will remain live, TheWrap has learned exclusively — so WWE can hang on to all of its “SmackDown Live” marketing and signage.

• Spoiler On Winner Of Next Week’s #1 Contenders Match
On next week’s episode of RAW, a tag team battle royal will take place. The winners of this match will face WOKEN Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt for the RAW Tag Team Titles at Money In The Bank 2018.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, only the teams that were a part of the BBQ segment on this week’s RAW will be a part of next week’s Battle Royal.
This means teams like The Authors of Pain and Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler won’t be a part of the battle royal.
This pretty much means that The B-Team (Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas) will win this match and get a RAW Tag Team Title match (as WWE obviously won’t be pushing the other teams that were in that segment).
