UPDATE: With Smackdown having a retro theme tonight, it led others to believe that the infamous ‘fist’ stage would make a return as well. However, Fightful Select reports that this is not the case. As of noon today, the fist was not set up in the Thunderdome and it takes time to put that together due to the size and weight.

Original: Tonight’s episode of Smackdown will have a special throwback theme, with the graphics including the original logo and an older look. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the reason for the retro theme is because it is likely a FOX directive. FOX will be airing a NASCAR race with a similar theme.

The only match announced so far tonight is a Wrestlemania rematch between Seth Rollins and Cesaro.
