Xia Li debut, two matches announced for WWE SmackDown


Xia Li's debut and two matches have been announced for next week's WWE SmackDown. 

Li will make her first official appearance as a member of WWE's main roster on the Friday, December 10 SmackDown. Li was drafted to the brand in October and worked three dark matches that month. She has since appeared in a series of graphic novel-style vignettes touting her arrival, but has not wrestled since defeating Aliyah in a dark match at the October 15 SmackDown in Houston. 

Also announced for next week, Naomi will face Sonya Deville. In her role as an on-screen WWE official, Deville has been antagonizing Naomi for weeks, including instructing a referee to fast count her in a match. 

Jeff Hardy vs. Happy Corbin has also been announced for next week. Hardy and Drew McIntyre attacked Corbin and Madcap Moss on the Happy Talk show set on tonight's SmackDown to set up the match.
