Talking Smack is reportedly returning to the WWE Network this weekend.
It was reported earlier this month that WWE was considering a return for the popular post-SmackDown talk show. Now Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that the Talking Smack return episode is being filmed tonight after the SummerSlam go-home edition of SmackDown on FOX.
While Talking Smack is being filmed later tonight, it likely will not air on the WWE Network until some time on Saturday to ensure SmackDown has the chance to air in all markets.
There’s no word yet on who will be hosting Talking Smack. Renee Young previously hosted the show but she is reportedly finishing up with WWE this weekend. Renee had several co-hosts at different periods, most notably Daniel Bryan. The Miz, Shane McMahon and WWE Hall of Famer JBL also served as her co-hosts.
WWE first started having talks for the return of Talking Smack back in January, and recently made the decision to bring it back. Talking Smack first premiered in early August 2016, but was pulled from the air in July 2017. The show, which was popular with fans on social media, ran for 50 weekly episodes, and 9 post-pay-per-view episodes.
WWE also brought back RAW Talk earlier this year and it currently airs on the Network after RAW goes off the air each week.
Stay tuned for updates.
