WWE has started to announce a few things for next week’s episode of SmackDown.
Jeff Hardy vs. Happy Corbin and Naomi vs. Sonya Deville will take place on the show. For the women’s bout, this comes after Deville has been antagonizing Naomi for weeks including when she told the referee to do a fast count in a match.
Regarding the men’s match, on last night’s show, Hardy and Drew McIntyre attacked Corbin and Madcap Moss on the Happy Talk show to set up the match.
Also set for this show is the debut of Xia Li, who was drafted to the brand in October and worked three dark matches that month. Since being called up to the main roster, WWE has been airing graphic novel-style vignettes to hype her arrival. She beat Aliyah in a dark match at the October 15 SmackDown.
