All the rumors can now be squashed. The Rock has officially confirmed that he will be at this week’s WWE SmackDown Live on Friday night, as the program makes its debut on FOX.
It’s going to be a big week for professional wrestling. Tonight Monday Night RAW will make its season premiere on the USA Network, Wednesday night will mark the TV debut of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) on TNT, and now, SmackDown’s massive debut on FOX will feature “The Great One” himself.
