Ridge Holland returns to action after breaking his nose

WWE has announced two new segments for tonight’s (Jan. 28) episode of SmackDown on FOX.

We already know that Naomi is advertised to get her long-awaited singles match against abusive authority figure Sonya Deville, and that Big E will team up with Kofi Kingston to battle Madcap Moss & Happy Corbin. Now here are the newest segments that WWE has added to the card:

  • Seth “Freakin” Rollins will make an appearance to deliver a personal message to Universal champion Roman Reigns on the eve of their match at Royal Rumble.
  • Ricochet & Cesaro will team up to take on the team of Sheamus & Ridge Holland.

This is Holland’s first match back since his nose was broken at the beginning of the month. In fact, it’s an exact rematch of the Day 1 Kickoff bout where he suffered the injury. Considering Shinsuke Nakamura’s health update that we covered earlier today, I was thinking we’d see the Intercontinental champion in action tonight. But we’re getting Ridge Holland instead. At any rate, that loser Ricochet now has a chance to be pinned by Sheamus’ Brogue Kick on three consecutive episodes of SmackDown.

Are you digging the card for tonight, Cagesiders?
