Add former Smackdown GMs Teddy Long and Vickie Guerrero as names being advertised locally for the brand’s 1000th show scheduled for October 16 in Washington DC, which would make sense considering their history on Smackdown. The company is also promoting Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles vs. The Miz and Samoa Joe, which will likely go down in a dark match.
PWInsider confirms the earlier report that Rey Mysterio is scheduled for Smackdown 1000, which will serve as his return to the company. There was some thought of having him debut this weekend in Australia, but that won’t be happening.
