The New Day wish India a happy Republic Day, and then the Street Profits came out. Ford was said to have fumbled his promo a bit. All four then do a special performance of “Spinning Canvas.”
According to ITN Wrestling, “A Dhol Beater comes out followed by several dancers for a Bhangra performance. After Bhangra, their is a dance party waiting in the ring for some Bollywood style dancing.”
