• WWE Set To Promote SmackDown On FOX Using The Lex Express Idea
According to Brad Shepard, WWE officials are set to promote SmackDown’s debut on FOX using the Lex Express idea.
Below is what Brad said about this promotional idea:
“The SmackDown Express will be state of the art and an interactive company trailer that will accompany them from city to city. It was described to me as close to the trucks that the Army uses on their recruitment tours with HD monitors showcasing the best SmackDown matches from over the years. Free mugs and t-shirts and water bottles and memorabilia pieces etc. Complete with tour guides who will answer questions.
The talents who will travel in the bus haven’t been decided on yet, but I’m told they will alter folks in and out. Meet and greet tents will also be set up next to the trailer and a small ring may even be set up in certain cities for a free three-match show in arena parking lots.
I should know the launch date soon, but the potential launch date is August. They are ramping up the word and promotional marketing for SmackDown.”
