WWE On Fox Notes
With WWE moving SmackDown Live to Fox, some changes could be in the offing. These changes (h/t CagesideSeats) include:
- Another WWE draft being presented as a “legit sports draft”. The reason it will be starting on SmackDown Live is to legitimize the show and avoid the “B-show” label.
- Renee Young may be moved off of commentary to host a WWE studio show on FS1. This would be done because Fox are huge fans of Young.
- Commentators would be part of the brand re-draft as well. That means Corey Graves would be on commentary for only one show.
