The list of names set for next week’s huge WWE Smackdown 1,000 special continues to get longer, as one half of The Brothers of Destruction, Kane, is scheduled to appear at the show, reports PWInsider. Kane will be appearing along with The Undertaker, as the team prepares to face the newly reunited DX team of Triple H and Shawn Michaels in a tag team bout at WWE Crown Jewel.
WWE has since announced that Hall of Famer Edge will be appearing at Smackdown 1,000, and will be hosting a Cutting Edge segment on the show. The WWE.com announcement reads as follows.
The Rated-R Superstar is coming home.
Edge is returning to host a special edition of his talk show “The Cutting Edge” next Tuesday as part of SmackDown’s historic 1000th episode.
The WWE Hall of Famer was responsible for many of the blue brand’s greatest moments, whether it was stepping up as one of the SmackDown’s premiere Superstars after the initial brand split in 2002, his unforgettable Money in the Bank cash-in on The Undertaker or running roughshod over SmackDown with General Manager Vickie Guerrero in his corner.
