SmackDown's historic 1000th episode is fast approaching, and like the equivalent episode of Monday Night Raw, it's expected to be a huge one.

Back in 2012, we saw CM Punk lay the foundations for a historic match-up with The Rock, the Brothers of Destruction re-unite, Daniel Bryan and AJ Lee's wedding get scuppered by Vince McMahon, and Lita even returned to the ring for the first time in six years to beat Heath Slater.

There's a bit of a difference though, as SmackDown is slightly constrained time-wise compared to it's Monday night counterpart, only getting the two hours instead of Raw's 3-and-a-quarter hour running-time.

BIG RETURNS

That means it may not be as huge, but in the last few weeks star names have started to be linked to the episode, such as The Undertaker and Edge, two superstars who became synonymous with the brand in the 2000s.

You can bet the WWE will try to maximise the booking of the card with a probably bigger-than-usual audience figure, and we're pretty sure that titles will be on the line.

But the company put out a very interesting post to Facebook that has teased the in-ring return of several faces of the past.

DREAM MATCHES

The image at the fore-front of the post is a match-up between Daniel Bryan and Kurt Angle.

Whilst that wouldn't be a five-star classic like it would have been 10 years ago, it would still be a very intriguing match-up to the WWE Universe.

The WWE have teased a potential AJ Styles and Rey Mysterio match through social media, and it could happen should Rey return as planned.

Also teased are mammoth clashes between Charlotte Flair and Michelle McCool, WWE Champion AJ Styles and the apparently soon-returning Rey Mysterio, and what-would-be a heavyweight brawl between Samoa Joe and Batista - despite The Animal claiming he 'hasn't been invited to the episode'.

The bout that's least-likely to happen of the five is The Bar versus the APA, as Ron Simmons retired nearly 15 years ago due to injuries.

You can see the reaction of some fans on the post above, with many commenting that they may have missed the boat with Batista due to not inviting the six-time World Champion.

Whilst it's unlikely we will get any of these matches - aside from potentially Styles against Mysterio - there's nothing wrong with dreaming.

We're sure that Paige will have some good bouts up her sleeve for what is going to be a monumental night in Washington D.C. on October 16.
