As I previously reported, a new set with an Attitude Era-feel is coming to #WWE #SDLive on Fox. I’m told the plan is for the new set to feature the return of the Smackdown fist. The fist is currently ready for use and in storage. #OYDKWS @ProSportsExtra

A return of Smackdown fist after 11 years
Smackdown is the epitome of aggressive, gruelling wrestling. It used to frustrate superstars with 4-way fatal matches that one would want to punch a mirror. That was the idea of the iconic fist in the attitude-era.
The classic fist set started in 2001 and featured a fist breaking a mirror like structure. It used to create an aura at the Smackdown until HD sets took over and the fist got scrapped.

Superstars like The Undertaker lit up the atmosphere entering from around the big fist. It would look as deadly with Roman Reigns entering besides that.
Now whether it’s a full fledged fist coming back or a lighter incarnation remains to be seen. But all in all, the WWE fans would be hell excited to see the fist and all the others in the exciting tie up of WWE with fox.
