It’s all about the branding. With the impending move to FOX getting closer and closer to SmackDown Live, a lot of things need to be done as WWE continues to get things ready. This includes making the show look more modern with some changes that need to be made. One such thing would be updating the show’s look a little bit and it seems that things are moving in that direction.
A new image is floating around Twitter, which shows a newly designed logo for SmackDown Live when the show moves over to FOX on October 4. In addition to the new logo, the advertisement includes Roman Reigns, Charlotte, Bayley and Kofi Kingston, all of whom are currently part of the SmackDown Live roster. The current logo has been in use since 2016 when the show moved to Tuesday nights on the USA Network.
WWE knows a thing or two about moving SmackDown Live. Check out an ad for their previous move from a few years ago:
Opinion: It’s not a surprise and it’s the kind of thing that needs to be done with a move of this magnitude. WWE has a major chance to make SmackDown Live into something bigger and it would be hard to make the show feel special using the same logo that has been around for years now. Hopefully the show winds up being a success, but given where things are now, I’m not sure I see that being the case.
