Even though there were reports of WWE bringing the show back for the audience, there was no confirmation about the date until now.

Who is hosting WWE Talking Smack?

The hosts for Talking Smack used to be Renee Young and her series of co-hosts. Undoubtedly, the most notable co-host among them was Daniel Bryan. The other co-hosts Renee Young had while hosting Talking Smack were Shane McMahon, The Miz, and WWE Hall of Famer JBL.

Renee Young made the show quite famous. Now that Renee Young is leaving WWE, this seems like WWE’s way of giving a tribute to her.

Even though there was speculation about who the new host or the hosts will be, the company has decided to replace Renee Young with Kayla Braxton and Xavier Woods.

This combination of hosts might exactly be what WWE needs to revive the original hype of the show.

The return episode for the show is likely to be filmed following the SummerSlam go-home edition of SmackDown.

Whether Talking Smack can make the expected comeback or not, only time will tell!
