After last night's SmackDown at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan went off the air, WWE taped Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler for FOX's New Year's Eve special.

Reigns defeated Ziggler in the match, getting the pin after hitting a spear. Maria Menounos, who will be one of the co-hosts of the New Year's Eve broadcast, appeared as the special guest ring announcer.

Reigns vs. Ziggler will air as part of "FOX’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey: Live from Times Square” on Tuesday night. Harvey is hosting the special, with Menounos and former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announced as the co-hosts.

Musical performances by  LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip, The Chainsmokers, The Lumineers, Florida Georgia Line, The Backstreet Boys, Tyga, and The Killers are also advertised for the New Year's Eve special, along with appearances by Gordon Ramsay, Will Arnett, and Jenna Dewan. The Village People will attempt to break the record for the world's largest "YMCA" dance.

The Revival defeated The Lucha House Party in a dark match before last night's SmackDown went on the air, and The Fiend got the better of Daniel Bryan in a post-show brawl.
