Ladies and Gentleman, after Friday Night SmackDown was created and launched by WWE in 1999, SmackDown has become a major part of pop culture. Now, the official word smack•down has been added to the 2007 Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition.
On a yearly basis, Merriam-Webster carefully selects and adds new words to the collegiate list. This year less than 100 words were chosen, and SmackDown was one of them! This truly shows the impact of the show on pop culture, making SmackDown a commonly used term among the general public.
Smack•down is officially defined as:
1: the act of knocking down or bringing down an opponent 2: a contest in entertainment wrestling 3: a decisive defeat 4: a confrontation between rivals or competitors
