SmackDown's moving to FS1 for next week.
It was announced during SmackDown that the October 25 episode of SmackDown will be televised on FS1 and not FOX. The reason for that is because FOX is airing the 2019 MLB World Series between the Washington Nationals and the winner of the Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees series.
Announced for the October 25 episode of SmackDown is a confrontation between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez ahead of their title bout at WWE Crown Jewel on October 31. Also announced for the October 25 show is Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair as they are picking wrestlers for their respective five-person teams for their match at Crown Jewel.
Yep. Next Friday on @FS1 is going to be GOOD.— WWE (@WWE) October 19, 2019
