Holla! Holla! Holla!
Teddy Long was back on SmackDown and took on the role of the general manager once again, adding stakes to the bout between Cesaro and Seth Rollins. Long announced that if Cesaro was able to defeat Rollins in their singles bout, he would earn a shot at the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania Backlash.
Long served as the SmackDown General Manager from 2004 to 2012 and was famous for making tag team matches and having people go one-on-one with the Undertaker.
