Prepare to get hyped … because WWE has confirmed that not only are new sets on the way next week, but pyro is also making a return.
The New York Post’s Joseph Staszewski tweeted saying, “Talked with #WWE Executive Producer Kevin Dunn about [WWE on Fox]. Confirmed there will be new sets, openings, logos, graphics & theme music for both #Raw and SmackDown. Pyro is also returning including “flames, lasers.” More details next week on [NY Post Sports] about #WWEPremiereWeek.”
In case you missed it … Raw’s new announce team next week will consist of Vic Joseph, NXT wrestler Dio Maddin and Jerry Lawler. Sources tell us Lawler is likely only temporary as they seek a full-time announcer for the third spot on commentary.
Michael Cole and Corey Graves will now be on SmackDown in the commentary booth. Renee Young will be a special contributor and also host FOX’s new WWE studio show on FS1.
The official WWE Draft to form distinct rosters begins October 11 on Friday Night SmackDown.
