As seen on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, The Usos dropped a bomb on New Day when they spouted out the following reference to Paige’s sex tape during the rap battle:
“Big E, let’s just keep it PG, you know what’s good. Just don’t get all rated-R, like your boy Xavier Woods.”
According to Mega Ran, who was part of the The New Days’ entourage in the segment, only one producer for SmackDown knew that this line was going to be used in the battle, while the rest were left in the dark. The Usos made it a point to not show The New Day what they were planning on saying, so they didn’t submit their lines to the SmackDown producers like they were asked.
“[The Usos] were able to write rebuttal lines,” Ran revealed to HipHopDX. “I felt it gave them an advantage. They might’ve gotten a little better crowd response, but they went a little below the belt to get it.”
