Friday Night SmackDown Coming To The Ford Center

As previously mentioned, Friday Night SmackDown will be at the Ford Center in Evansville on Friday, November 17th. It will be the second time SmackDown has come to the Ford Center this year. If you are a fan of WWE, you know that there are currently a lot of interesting rivalries going on right now, and some of them will be settled this Saturday at Crown Jewel, while others will just be getting started.  Plus, when SmackDown comes to Evansville, we will be a week away from one of WWE's biggest events of the year, Survivor Series. This means we are going to be in store for an epic night in Evansville.

While we obviously won't know what will happen that night, we do know the following superstars are scheduled to be in the building:

  • LA Knight
  • Charlotte Flair
  • United States Champion Rey Mysterio
  • Austin Theory
  • A.J. Styles
  • Io Sky
  • Bayley
  • Bobby Lashley
  • Rey Mysterio

Obviously, that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. More stars and matches will be announced in the coming weeks as the show date gets closer.

Each day on the  Afternoon Show, caller number 9 will have to cut a “promo” on me as your favorite WWE Superstar (past or present). Once they complete that, they win a pair of tickets to the show. Each winner that week will be qualified to get “upgraded” and win ringside tickets next to me at the show. After we find our final winner on Friday, November 3rd, there will be a random drawing of all five qualifiers, and one will get upgraded to a pair of ringside tickets to Monday Night Raw at the Ford Center!

Brush up on those promos, as they could score you ringside seats this week with WKDQ!

25 Hidden Evansville Secrets That May Blow Your Mind

No matter how long you've lived here, chances are there will be a few things on this list you didn't know about the city we call home.
