While at the center of an investigation, Vince McMahon will appear on Friday Night SmackDown tonight.
Shortly after the announcement that McMahon has voluntarily stepped away from his duties as the company’s CEO & Chairman during the investigation, another press release was sent out Friday morning:
WWE today announced that Mr. McMahon will appear on SmackDown tonight at 8 pm ET live on FOX.
It is unknown what McMahon will or will not address on the show tonight, which takes place from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
While his CEO & Chairman duties have been assumed on an interim basis by Stephanie McMahon, Vince McMahon will still resume his duties regarding the creative content of the programming.
Tonight’s episode on Fox is also scheduled to feature Roman Reigns having a rare televised match, defending the Undisputed Universal Championship against Riddle.
