The 20th-anniversary episode will mark the premiere of SmackDown Live on FOX at 8 p.m. ET and take place at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 4.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE has reached out to The Rock about making an appearance on the special episode. There’s no word yet on if he’ll appear on the show.
If he doesn’t then the issue will come down to his filming schedule. Of the announced film projects he’s involved in, both Jumanji: The Next Level and Jungle Cruise are in post-production while Red Notice has yet to start filming.
