Dragon Lee replaces Carlito at Survivor Series

WWE promoted Carlito coming to Friday Night SmackDown this week in Chicago with something to say about Santos Escobar, who he was scheduled to wrestle at Survivor Series in the same city at the Allstate Arena. I say “was” because, well, he is no longer scheduled to do so.

That’s because Escobar interrupted that promo with enough pointed words that it led to a brawl between the two. Officials broke it up, but they didn’t do their job well enough to keep Escobar from a behind-the-back attack that left him injured.

Later in the show, Nick Aldis was asked for an update on what this means and this happened:

Dragon Lee has spent the past few weeks having awesome matches on TV, and now he’ll get the chance to have another on a premium live event. It also sets him up nicely to have a real story to sink his teeth into.

Here we go!
