And in the ads during the games, they used clips of actual stars that will actually appear on the show and not lighlights of Steve Austin and The Rock from the Attitude Era. So, there's a positive thing too.

The FOX Network is escalating its promotional push for the upcoming debut of Smackdown on the network next month. Earlier during the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins NFL Game, FOX started running in-game promo spots for the WWE program. You can check out an image of the promo spot that was shown during the game and shared on Twitter below.

Smackdown will debut on FOX on Friday, October 4. The event will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The show will also mark Smackdown’s 20th anniversary.
