“We have been able to confirm that he will appear on FOX during the broadcast,” the report reads, confirming his participation on the next week’s episode of SmackDown live from Madison Square Garden.
The report also adds that there is no word on what his level of involvement would be. The Deadman could physically be a part of the show or perhaps a recorded segment.

His final appearance with the promotion came at Survivor Series last year, exactly 30 years to the day after he made his debut for the company. He reiterated his retirement in a farewell speech and has since stayed away from the squared circle.
