Backstage Update On Plans For Changes To WWE SmackDown

Right now, there is a feeling that SmackDown is seen as a lame-duck show until it switches over to the USA Network in January.

Jerry Lawler previously teased that the show may move back to Friday nights and become a live show, however we have yet to hear an update on that being the case. There has been talk of debuting SmackDown on the USA Network with a live Tuesday night special.

Once SmackDown moves over to the USA Network next year, the show will likely be booked as an "all hands on-deck" show, much like RAW.
