Four pack. WWE runs three weekly series almost every week of the year and there are only so many different ways to present things. You will occasionally see a special show with some bigger stars included, often around an important moment. That is the kind of thing that you do not see very often, but you know it is going to matter when it is announced. It seems we will be getting another of those shows next week.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Even More? Legendary Name May Make Appearance Next Week On NXT

WWE has announced that next week’s SmackDown, the October 13 edition, will be the Season Premiere, with several major names returning. This week on SmackDown, it was announced that WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be making his return to the show, marking his first appearance in about two months. In addition, Pretty Deadly will return to the ring for the first time since July 14, as Elton Prince has been recovering from a shoulder injury. Finally WWE COO Triple H will be on hand to make a special appearance.

There are all kinds of talent coming back. Check out who is coming back:

Opinion: To say WWE is loading up for next week would be an understatement, as this is on top of the huge NXT event already announced. That should make for a heck of a Friday, and having Roman Reigns back to get ready for the last few months of the year should help a lot. What matters is WWE is actually trying to bring the big stuff and I’m curious to see where things go.

What do you think of the returns? What will Triple H do on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
