Tony Khan says ‘I can’t wait to finally beat your main show head-to-head’

Due to a scheduling conflict with the MLB playoffs on FOX, the October 15th 2021 edition of WWE SmackDown will air on FS1 instead. The show is being billed as a “Supersized” Smackdown with a listed length of two and a half hours. The final 30 minutes of next week’s Smackdown will end up going head-to-head with AEW Rampage on TNT.
