Things are going to be a bit different. We’re rapidly approaching SmackDown Live’s debut on FOX, which is going to provide the biggest change to WWE’s television product in years. This is the kind of thing that WWE has never been able to make work in decades and now we are going to see what WWE can do on this stage. It turns out that we might be seeing a change in the presentation as well.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE has been testing out a variety of different technologies for their debut episode of SmackDown Live on FOX. The series is likely to have a more cinematic feeling to it with a style based more on the look of a show like WWE 24. WWE has already tested out some material and is said to be happy with what they saw. SmackDown Live moves to FOX on October 4.
When the move to FOX happens, expect SmackDown to be shot with different cameras. WWE tested out some newer, much more expensive technology recently and said to have liked what it produced. It will seem cinematic like, similar to some WWE24 footage.

This is how WWE 24 looks. Check out a clip from the series:
Opinion: You had to know something like this was going to happen but at the same time, it isn’t clear exactly how something like this is going to go. WWE knows how to present its televisions shows like almost no one else and under the right circumstances and on the right platform, they could be able to offer something even better than what we have already seen before.
How should WWE present SmackDown Live on FOX? What should take place on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
