"When Fox takes over"? You make it sound like Vince sold Smackdown to Fox.

It was just a deal to show Smackdown on the Fox network, wasn't it? I seriously doubt Vince would have agreed to anything that would have given anybody other than himself even a slight amount of control over anything other than scheduling the show - for example, Fox will have to pre-empt it on 10/25 for World Series Game 3.

Fox can "suggest" things, like, "Put Ronda Rousey on Smackdown," but in the end, that should still be Vince's call.
