This will mark the first WWE television event at Staples Center since the SmackDown on FOX premiere on October 4, 2019. A live event was held at Staples on December 30, 2019.

Fightful Select published the following information about WWE returning to Staples on September 24:

Vince McMahon and Nick Khan also decided on another move to further appease FOX. There was an episode of Raw that had been discussed for the Staples Center in Los Angeles. With FOX Sports being a Los Angeles based company, Khan and McMahon quickly killed the idea, and made the decision to instead have the first show in LA be an episode of Smackdown broadcast on the FOX Network, slated for December 10.

Fightful provides live coverage of WWE SmackDown every Friday beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
