The Staples Center in Los Angeles is advertising Brock Lesnar for the SmackDown 20th Anniversary special on Friday, October 4. This is also the SmackDown on Fox premiere episode, which will air from 8-10pm ET.
We noted before how the arena had advertised Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton vs. WWE Champion Kofi Kingston for SmackDown 20. That match was nixed and they now have a six-man tag team match advertised with Orton, Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs. The New Day’s Kingston and SmackDown Tag Team Champions Big E & Xavier Woods.
The arena is also advertising Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe, plus the appearances by Lesnar and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley. It was also noted that “every major Superstar from RAW and SmackDown” will be there to celebrate 20 years of the blue show.
