WWE aired a vignette for The Ascension at the Smackdown tapings. There was talk of them debuting several weeks ago but for whatever reason that was delayed. For those that follow NXT on the WWE Network then you are already familiar with The Ascension. They also wrestled a match on WWE Main Event back in September.
The vignette aired at the beginning of the Tyson Kidd/Cesaro vs. The Usos match on Smackdown.
