MUMBAI: World wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) property Friday Night SmackDown will make history on Friday, 2 October, by commemorating 10 years on air with a “Decade of SmackDown” themed episode.

SmackDown! airs every Friday at 5 pm on Ten Sports. As a pop culture staple, Friday Night SmackDown has aired more than 520 episodes, surpassing The Simpsons, Married With Children, and Law & Order in total episodes. Over the years, SmackDown has featured celebrities such as Samuel L Jackson, Ashton Kutcher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jimmy Kimmel and Sherri Shepherd among many others in its storylines.

Merriam-Webster dictionary incorporated, the term “smackdown” in 2007, cementing the programme’s relevance in American culture and vernacular.
