New Zealanders are in store for a supersized edition of SmackDown.
Saturday’s live broadcast on Sky 5 will be two-and-a-half hours long, with the last 30 minutes airing commercial free, Sky confirmed to NZPWI.
One week before his Universal Championship match at Crown Jewel, Brock Lesnar is back on SmackDown.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch faces Sasha Banks in a non-title bout which will be the first one-on-one meeting between the two since Hell in a Cell 2019.
Semifinals in the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments take place, and Naomi faces Sonya Deville in Deville’s return to the ring.
This week’s SmackDown will be the last with its current roster; the WWE Draft is scheduled to go into effect as of next Saturday, October 23 (New Zealand time).
