A significant segment is poised to unfold on tonight’s (October 13) SmackDown, promising the revelation of the newest member of the roster. Following Cody Rhodes’ announcement on September 2 during the Payback premium live event, confirming Jey Uso’s move from SmackDown to Raw after his feud with the Bloodline, speculation arose about the pending trade.
Cody Rhodes had disclosed that someone from Raw would be traded to SmackDown in exchange for Jey Uso, and Adam Pearce hinted that the identity of the traded superstar might stir controversy. According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, the long-anticipated reveal was scheduled for this Friday’s SmackDown as of Thursday, suggesting that fans won’t have to wait much longer.
Sapp’s tweet indicated that the revelation was set for tonight unless there is a last-minute alteration to the show’s lineup.
