Plus, the RAW Tag Team Champions The Alpha Academy and Team RK-Bro will clash in an Academic Challenge!

The Usos will be barred from ringside when Roman Reigns defends the Universal Championship against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble.

That stipulation was set after Rollins & Kevin Owens got a DQ win over The Usos on last Friday’s SmackDown.

Also on the show, Sonya Deville stepped in as special guest referee..and helped SmackDown Women’s Champ Charlotte Flair beat Naomi. Deville and Naomi are now set to go one-on-one on Friday’s SmackDown.

The Wrld On GCW last night from New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
