Powell’s POV: Smackdown is listed as a three-hour event on WWE Network and will probably run close to the usual live special length given that it is available for purchase on pay-per-view via some cable outlets. Join me for live coverage of the one-hour Kickoff Show and the event beginning at 6:00 p.m. CT. Dot Net Members will hear an exclusive audio review later tonight.
