As announced during this week’s edition of SmackDown, the May 7 edition of the show will be a Throwback edition of SmackDown, featuring an old school look and style. There is no word on who will be appearing on the show or what WWE will be doing to mark the special edition. SmackDown has run a similar event before, with the Blast From The Past episode on April 10, 2012.
WWE has presented old school themed shows before, including various editions of Monday Night Raw. These shows often include a variety cameos from famous wrestlers throughout the show’s history, as well as various themes and looks from the show’s past. There are occasionally special matches and angles taking place during the show, though the only match announced so far is Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro.
WWE has done something similar before. Check out the trailer fro next week and the old SmackDown theme with some newer wrestlers:
