Syfy and WWE announced yesterday its first ever WWE Smackdown live special, SuperSmackdown Live, on Tuesday, August 30 at 8-10PM/ET on Syfy, originating from the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
The reason for the schedule change is because the original September 2 air date falls on Labor Day weekend. Officials are anticipating a poor rating for that day and therefore the show will air three days earlier.
This is similar to WWE airing SmackDown! live on the USA Network on a weekend when the usual SyFy rating was expected to be down because of the holidays.
