WWE is set to celebrate the historical 1000th episode of SmackDown Live on 16th of October later this year, and they are reportedly trying to bring a big star in for the show.
According to Barnburner’s Fired Up podcast, WWE is talking to none other than the Rock to make an appearance at the upcoming special SmackDown episode.
Not only that but the podcast reports that the Officials are very close to booking the Great One for the show, so the expectation of his appearance are high.
The Rock is known to be the star who came up with the SmackDown slang which later became the name of WWE’s second brand so it would make a lot of sense for him to be at the 1000th episode of the show.
No word yet on what he will be doing at the event but chances are that he will be seen in a role similar to the Raw 1000th episode a few years back.
