11/26 WWE SmackDown Preview: Ridge Holland In-Ring Debut, Black Friday Battle Royal

Ridge Holland will make his in-ring debut as a member of the WWE SmackDown roster on the November 26 episode of the show.

WWE has announced that Holland will face Cesaro one week after the newcomer cost “The Swiss Cyborg” the chance to qualify for Team SmackDown at WWE Survivor Series.

The official preview, courtesy of WWE’s official website, is as follows:

Sheamus has taken Ridge Holland under his wing, and the WWE Universe can only imagine the brutality that awaits.

The bruiser from Yorkshire will look to prove himself against Cesaro for his blue brand in-ring debut. Holland burst onto the scene last week to help The Celtic Warrior clinch a Fatal 4-Way win and earn a spot on Team SmackDown at Survivor Series. The towering duo was all laughs after the match, but Cesaro has promised to take both of them to a dark place.

Is Holland ready to make a big statement against The Swiss Superman and bring a tear to Sheamus’ eye?
