Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Our Tribal Chief Speaks: Literally 12 minutes of entrance, pissing off the crowd, and bragging about running circles through the roster as he's beat 'em all. 8:01-8:13pm EST.
  • Our Queen Speaks: Charlotte Flair claimed her loss at Survivor Series was due to bad officiating, then once again took credit for Lynch's career. Toni Storm confronted Flair and the two had a mini food fight. 8:59-9:06pm EST.
  • Xia Li Promos: The new, cool comic book-inspired promos for Xia Li continued. Tonight's mini "episode" stated that Xia Li hated vultures who fed on the weak. She proclaimed her self the protector and the defender of those who have been wronged.
  • New Music: The trend of giving Superstars new music continues, as the Viking Raiders have a new (still heavy) theme.
  • Brock Party: Announced at the end of our broadcast was the breaking news that not only has Brock Lesnar's suspension been lifted, but also the Beast will be at SmackDown next Friday!
