The 1000th episode of SmackDown Live will air on October 23rd and it looks set to be one of the biggest WWE broadcasts of the year.
As with all milestone episodes, there will be a number of WWE fan-favorites returning to celebrate. According to PWInsider, Edge has been confirmed and will be appearing on the broadcast. Edge was, of course, a major name on the blue brand throughout the 00's. Edge missed the 25th anniversary of Raw in January due to filming overseas.
WWE is also currently in discussion with The Rock about making a special appearance, although it will be pending he can fit it around his movie schedule.
