The quick reveal. There are certain angles in wrestling that come up every so often and will work pretty much every time. One of the best is a mystery, as it gives the fans a reason to keep watching to see where things are going. However, there are also instances where the reveal is given very quickly, which was the situation this week as the mystery lasted about an hour.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: You Can See Him: John Cena Set For Huge Tag Match On December 30 SmackDown

The opening match of this week’s SmackDown saw Tegan Nox and Liv Morgan challenging Damage Ctrl for the Women’s Tag Team Titles. Late in the match, a mystery woman in black attacked Nox, ultimately costing her team the match. Security took the mystery woman away and, in a digital exclusive, she was revealed as SmackDown star Xia Li. WWE executive Adam Pearce ordered her into his office to end the video.

What a short form saga. Check out how the reveal and the match went:

Opinion: I was a little disappointed by the quick reveal as I’m a sucker for a good mystery/masked person in wrestling. There is something fun about wondering who is involved in the story and what we might be seeing in the whole thing. Li getting something to do is a good idea, but it would have been cool to see it built up a little longer than some time in the same show.
