- New SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair was interviewed by ABC affiliate WGNO in New Orleans and discussed her title win over Natalya this past Tuesday night on SmackDown Live. During the interview, she discussed her father Ric surprising her after the victory, which was his first WWE televised appearance since his nearly fatal health scare in August.
"He's done so much to pave the way for me, and then being able to win the title in my hometown and knowing that he's back he's healthy and to celebrate that moment when he was sick all I could think about was my dad never seen me wrestle again so that was really hard," Charlotte said. "So sharing that moment was nice."
"I failed at P.E. when I was 15 years so I decided to change something," Becky said. "Sometimes all it takes is a nudge and a cosmic wake-up call. I was always a fan, but now I could do something about it."
- John Cena's match at the upcoming WWE live event at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, December 26th has changed. Cena, who was originally scheduled to wrestle Samoa Joe, will now be facing Roman Reigns in a rematch from their match at WWE No Mercy this past September. Reigns defeated Cena in their first meeting.
