• Mark Henry Defends Top Dolla After Botch On SmackDown
On last night’s episode of SmackDown, Hit Row defeated Legado Del Fantasma and The Viking Raiders in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match.
With this win, they have earned an Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match against The Usos, which has already been taped and will air on next week’s December 23rd episode of SmackDown.
During last night’s match, Top Dolla of Hit Row botched an over-the-top-rope dive. You can watch it below:

Top Dolla tweeted the following about it:
“S/o God 🙏🏽 one of my legs gave out on the jump but I’m good thankfully. Already been checked out. 🙏🏽”
After fans made fun of his botch, Top Dolla posted a clip from an indy match where he successfully hit this move, and wrote:
“I was 50 lbs heavier in this video than I am now. My leg gave out on live TV and some of y’all jokes are actually very funny but calling me a liar is super weird. It could’ve been way worse so I’m blessed 🙏🏽 Y’all don’t care doe 🔝💵”

He later added:
“Once again, I say… because some of y’all clearly skipped this part…
‘Some of y’all jokes are actually funny’ I have definitely been laughing at some of y’all responses. The match was still very dope even with my f**k up, I’m grateful.”
WWE Hall Of Famer & current AEW Personality Mark Henry saw that Top Dolla was responding to fans making fun of the botch.
This led to Henry tweeting:
“Bro, anyone that has ever performed has failed. It’s a part of the process to get better. Why would you listen to people that have no idea how to do what you did, the ability or confidence to do what you did and the athleticism to perform that maneuver when the cameras are rolling.”
Top Dolla replied:
“You right Big Fella. 🙏🏽”
