Dish Network and Sling TV were unable to come to terms with FOX which may effect wrestling fans who are customers of the companies. While Smackdown may not be effected immediately, FS1, the Fox station that will cover WWE’s new studio show “WWE Backstage”, may be effected as many Sling and Dish Network customers experienced a blackout of this station.
The debut for Smackdown on Fox is beginning to see some major marketing from WWE. Several legendary talents are currently being advertised for the show including Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, and Trish Stratus.
WWE is loading up the card with talent as expected.
