A pair of specials on the WWE Network this month could be a sign of what's to come for the streaming service.

EVOLVE's 10th Anniversary Celebration streamed on the Network opposite AEW Fight for the Fallen on July 13. Another in-ring special has also been added to the Network schedule for this month, with "Smackville" set to air this Saturday (July 27).

Smackville is similar to past specials like The Shield's Final Chapter and WWE Starrcade. The WWE Network broadcast of Smackville will be an hour long. Kofi Kingston will defend the WWE Championship against Samoa Joe and Dolph Ziggler in a triple threat match, Finn Balor will face Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a rematch from Extreme Rules, and there will be a musical performance segment with Elias.

The Smackville name is playing off the show taking place in Nashville, Tennessee and the city's Bridgestone Arena, which is the home of the Nashville Predators.
