Hit Row made their SmackDown debut on Friday’s episode after being moved up from NXT 2.0 as part of this year’s WWE Draft.
Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott and Top Dolla teamed up to defeat two local competitors on the show. This wasn’t what was originally planned for them on the show.
It turns out that there is a reason why Ashante Thee Adonis stayed out of the action as it was reported on Friday that WWE wanted to use Top Dolla as a singles star while Scott and Adonis will be used as a tag team.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that Adonis isn’t cleared to wrestle right now.
Meltzer stated, “Ashante has a medical condition. I don’t much longer until he’s going to be able to wrestle, but he was there.”
