WWE is already testing special shows that they'll have on the Network on Saturdays. This is to combat any possible PPVs that AEW will offer on Saturdays. WWE already confirmed for example that July 27th they will have "Smackville" live show from Tennessee. This show will showcase various Smacdown talents. WWE also plans to convince Fox to move NXT on Wed to counter the TNT AEW ahow.

Smackville sounds like a joke about an area full of heroin addicts

Smackville. Yikes.

If they need to call it something Smackdown related, call it Downtown.

Re: WWE to 'test counter programming' on Saturdays against AEW PPVs

If you have the WWE network you are a die hard, in-the-tank, wwe fan. AEW is not after that level of WWE fan. Anybody that would choose some rinky dink network counter programming to a 4 times a year AEW PPV is not a person that is reachable/convertible to AEW in the first place.
