Finally, The Rock has come back to SmackDown!
This Friday in his home city of Miami, The People’s Champion will step inside a SmackDown ring for the first time in 10 years. For the first time in a decade, The Rock returns to “his” show! ( WATCH)
When WWE looked to debut the blue brand back in 1999, they wisely chose to mold their newest incarnation in the image of The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment by naming the show after his explosive catchphrase, “Layeth the SmackDown!”
Now, one week before SmackDown celebrates its 700 episode, The Rock will make a rare appearance. It comes just 16 days before The Brahma Bull will battle WWE Champion CM Punk one-on-one for the WWE Title at Royal Rumble on Jan. 27 ( MATCH PREVIEW). Could the dangerous Straight Edge Superstar look to destroy his legendary competition prior to their pay-per-view showdown?
Or might The Shield – who WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon still suspects to be in cohoots with Punk and who proved to be the difference in the champion’s Tables, Ladders and Chairs Title Match against Ryback on Raw ( WATCH | PHOTOS) – dare to attempt to ambush the seven-time WWE Champion, the way they have done to so many Superstars?
It’s also a distinct possibility that other SmackDown competitors, such as World Heavyweight Champion Big Show, Sheamus or Randy Orton, may have something to say to The Great One.
Find out if The Rock with indeed Layeth the SmackDown, this Friday at 8/7 CT on Syfy!
