New SmackDown Ad on FOX Shows Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Rey Mysterio
 
Quote:

Ė A new Smackdown ad advertising the showís move to FOX in October hints at the possibility that a couple of the brandís big stars may stick around. Our own Justin Watry posted a screenshot of the ad, which aired on FOX, to Twitter which shows Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Rey Mysterio and John Cena.

While the Cena point is somewhat negligible due to his part-time schedule, the Lynch, Flair and Mysterio ones are worth looking at. With the Superstar Shakeup next week, thereís the strong possibility that one of these stars may change brands. On the surface, it would suggest that they might be sticking around, as you donít generally advertise talent that wonít be appearing on the show.

That said, there are some important caveats to note. The first is the standard ďcard subject to changeĒ line. The second is, of course, that Mysterio, Lynch and Flair are all currently on the Blue Brand. So it is entirely possible that FOX just wanted to advertise the show, didnít want to wait until next week as they draw closer to the network upfronts next month, and decided to use names who are currently on the roster. So certainly donít take this as anything approaching gospel.

FOX makes its move from USA Network to FOX in October, and will be moving to live on Friday nights.

I guess Fox wants Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, John Cena and Rey Mysterio on the blue brand show in October.

Don't look too deep into it. WWE always has these promos set and ready

You know Cena and Lynch vs Mysetrio and Charlotte isn't a bad match to kick off Smackdown with


just some food for thought

Hmm I know Cena would be a wise move on their part to be on the premiere show but I'd say they will have something better planned out when it comes around.

Cena's a "free agent" and had a FOX show so I assume he'd be on the first one at least.

Becky and Charlotte must not be anywhere near as important come October if they're being downgraded to the B show.

Interesting not to see Roman or Brock, aka the guys they actually care about.....because of course not.

Once Smackdown goes to Fox you know it will be the new A show. WWE will put all their resources on that show.

:lol No. Raw is Vinces baby.

Also, they're already off Fox. They're on Fox "short term", which comes directly from a Fox executive. They're moving to FS1.

Just think of Smackdown from 02 through 03. That's how it'll be and Raw will still be Raw, shitty.

SmackDown was the B show in 2002 and 2003.

I can't believe anybody who ACTUALLY knows Vinces history thinks he's going to make SmackDown the B show. He's too obsessed with Raw. This is the same company who signed this Fox deal and then had SmackDown lose every match at Survivor Series with no follow up, buried their womens division, etc. It's not even staying on Fox. They haven't even gotten on the network and Fox has already backtracked on the deal.
