– Christian made his return to Smackdown to host an episode of The Peep Show. He plugged his appearance on the SyFy show Haven on November 28th, then plugged Team Cena vs. Team Authority. Dean Ambrose, his guest, came out to the ring without an introduction. Christian called him on it, then said when he was in The Shield, he made a lot of enemies. They started talking about Wyatt. Ambrose said he has nothing that Wyatt wants, so he must just like mind games. Ambrose has a dark mind and loves to fight.
– Bray Wyatt comes out and sits in the rocking chair. Wyatt says Ambrose has nothing to lose. He talks about the safety and security he had with The Shield, and how that was taken away. He offers Ambrose a chance to team up with him, and cites Daniel Bryan as someone he offered the same to, and he’s nowhere to be found. Wyatt takes a dig at Ambrose’s father, and asks if he still gets postcards from prison. Ambrose left the ring to go after Wyatt until the lights cut out. When they came back up, Ambrose was behind Wyatt. More camera trickery, and Wyatt disappeared, to cut a backstage promo. Ambrose called Wyatt out for a brief brawl in the ring. It’s not clear if the brawl will make it to TV or was for the audience in attendance only.
– Backstage segment with AJ Lee. Nikki Bella attacked her from behind thanks to a distraction from Brie.
– Backstage segment with Tyson Kidd flirting with Summer Rae and Layla. Natalya found him and called him out. He heeled it up and then left with Nattie.

– Dolph Ziggler cut a backstage promo, saying he made his intentions clear on Monday. He wants The Authority gone. Triple H approached him, reminding him neither Cena nor Orton were around to save him. He told Ziggler to save himself, and reminded him of what happened to Orton on Raw.
– There was a segment with a soldier who lost the use of his legs in Afghanistan. He was placed into a device that allowed him to walk without assistance. Good reaction from the crowd here. Unclear if it will make TV.
