Eddie Edwards, "The Standby Wrestler" Richard Justice, Fallah Bahh, Garza Jr. and Allie beat Chris Adonis, Caleb Konley, El Hijo del Fantasma, Laurel Van Ness and KM in a Turkey Bowl Match after Eddie Edwards rolls up Chris Adonis. After the match, Eli Dake says there will be a random draw to see who will wear the turkey suit, as Adonis will not wear the suit. Jeremy Borash reminds him that an oath was taken and that Adonis must wear the turkey suit. Adonis refuses and leaves the ring, but security guards show up and force him to go back. Adonis appeases them and tries to run to the back, but more show up and top him, and Adonis is reminded that he is contractually obligated to wear the turkey suit. If he does not wear the suit, the turkey suit will go on Eli Drake. Eli Drake tries to get him out of it, but Adonis is forced back into the ring. Adonis reluctantly wears the suit, then when Adonis leaves the ring, Eddie Wdwards throws food at him. This starts a food fight between the two teams. Eli Drake holds down Eddie Edwards in the ring, but when Chris Adonis tries to tries to hit Eddie with a cherry pie, Eddie ducks and hits Eli Drake in the face instead.

Before the next match, Drew Gulak demands the chants stop. As he cleans the streets in his Street Fight, he will end Akira Tozawa's chanting.

Layin' da SmackDown - SmackDown recap for November 21, 2017

Commissioner Shane McMahon shows up to start tonight's show. Shane says that SmackDown Live came up close, but just fell short. He says Stephanie will spin this any way she will, but SmackDown Live proved on Sunday that even in defeat, is anything but the B-show. He is proud of the blue brand's roster, saying they brought it. He says he is not only proud of them at Survivor Series, but each and every week as they bleed blue and deliver for the fans...all of them, except for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, whom he calls out. Owens and Sami show up. Owens says it must be tiring for Shane to start the show every week with a different excuse for why he fails, Sami asks what is harder: to come up with excuses or to man up and apologize when wrong. Owens then tells Shane he made a fatal mistake leaving them off Survivor Series, saying they can beat any team, especially The Shield and Raw's men's team. He also says either of them could - and would - beat Brock Lesnar. Owens then asks for the pleasantries to be skipped and demands Shane says he is sorry. Shane reminds Owens he is speaking to the Commissioner tonight, and tells Owens to shut his mouth for once in his life, as he and Sami have no respect for anybody, whether it be anyone in the back, the crowd or even himself. Sami agrees, obviously not caring. Shane then says two words to them. Owens and Sami say they cannot be fired as they are too important for the show, and Shane would be dumb to fire two future Hall of Famers. Owens says there is nobody who does not think that he and Sami are the top two Superstars in WWE. Shane says they are delusional, tells them the blue brand locker room hates their guts, and calls them the most self-absorbed, crazy maniacs to step in a WWE ring. Shane tells Owens to step forward, while he has two words for Sami Zayn. He says "You're," but before he can say the second word, General Manager Daniel Bryan shows up. Daniel Bryan tells Shane to put his personal feelings aside. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn cheer-lead for Daniel Bryan, but Daniel tells them to shut up. He also says he had to send Randy Orton home because he won't be held responsible to what he does to them, and mentions that The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, Xavier Woods) is furious with what they did, then puts them in a match with The New Day. Sami says this is unfair, but once again, Daniel Bryan tells him to shut up. He reminds Sami and Owens that the whole blue brand locker room hates their guts, and will be lining the ring during their match with The New Day, making their match tonight a Lumberjack Match.

Shelton Benjamin beats Jey Uso.

Backstage, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are talking to someone backstage, telling them that the powers that be will come after them next. That person is Baron Corbin, and even he can't stand them. He tells them to find someone a little more weak-minded. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn then come across Bobby Roode, and try to get him to join their side, asking if he wants to be like the rest of the locker room or different like them. Roode asks if they are out of their minds, reminding them they ruined his first Survivor Series Match and that he owes both of them a receipt.

Naomi is bummed out that SmackDown Live did not win Survivor Series, but she is happy that Charlotte Flair beat Alexa Bliss. Suddenly, Ruby Riot shows up...and Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan are with her. They attack Naomi, and tell her she has no glow. Becky Lynch runs in, but she does not fare any better. Sarah Logan smashes a door into Becky Lynch's gut, then referees show up to restore order.

Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan meet backstage. Shane commends Daniel Bryan on his lumberjack match and bringing in Ruby Riot, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan.

She says Charlotte is running wild, and gives her credit for beating her. She mocks "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair celebrating with Charlotte, then gives Charlotte credit for beating Alexa Bliss. She says that Charlotte thinks she is Wonder Woman, and she wonders which woman will knock her off her perch. After that, Ric will have something to cry about. Tonight, she plans to become SmackDown Women's Champion again...and forever.

"The Phenomenal" AJ Styles shows up. AJ Styles says he tried at Survivor Series, but Brock Lesnar is every bit the beast we all thought he was. He mentions the congratulations for him holding his own, as well as Paul Heyman respecting his efforts, but you don't get trophies for second place in the WWE. When the match was over, however, he was not the one limping to the back, and reminds us that in the sequel to Rocky, "he wins." He then focuses on tonight. Styles says he is a little salty because somebody said they would take the WWE Championship from him on SmackDown live. He then calls Jinder Mahal out, daring him to take the title. Jinder Mahal appears, but on the TitanTron. He says he will come down to the ring when he wants to, and he is watching his match with Brock Lesnar repeatedly. He says AJ Styles took advantage of him two weeks ago. Had he won, he would be hailed right now as "The Beast Master." Styles asks Jinder if he realizes how stupid he sounds, and mentions that Jinder is still fresh after having Survivor Series off. Jinder insists he will have his title rematch when he wants it, then calls Styles a disgrace to SmackDown Live before invoking his rematch clause at Clash of Champions. Styles is then attacked from behind by The Singh Brothers (Sunil and Samir Singh) as he laughs. Styles quickly gets the other hands, however, and one of the brothers gets the Styles Clash.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn walk in on Aiden English singing about Rusev Day in front of Rusev. Sami says he and Owens would rather celebrate Rusev Day, and Owens says both parties get each other.

Next week: "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles vs. The Singh Brothers (Samir and Sunil Singh) in a 2-on-1 handicap match! Fashion Files!

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn beat The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E) in a Lumberjack Match. During the match, Sami Zayn ducks a forearm by Baron Corbin, which nails Bobby Roode. This starts a brawl among the lumberjacks which heads to the back, and Sami Zayn slides into the ring to pin Kofi with a schoolboy pin. After the match, Kevin Owens escapes through the crowd after Big E confronts him only to be attacked by Rusev and Aiden English. Kofi takes out Rusev and English, but Owens escapes. Kofi hits English and Rusev from the top rope, but when Sami Zayn tries to escape, he gets nabbed by Xavier Woods, who drags him into the ring where he is ganged up on by The New Day before falling victim to a Midnight Hour. Backstage, Kevin Owens tells General Manager Daniel Bryan that he cannot fire him and Sami Zayn. He gets on his knees and begs not to be fired. Daniel says he was never going to fire them, as he recognizes his talent. Next week, Owens will face Randy Orton. Kevin Owens is ticked off about being in the match at first, but thanks Daniel Bryan.

Here's the top 10 moments from tonight's show!

Raw Deal - Raw recap for November 20, 2017

Commissioner Stephanie McMahon shows up to start the show. Stephanie calls Raw the "A-show" and "the show that devastated SmackDown Live." She says her brother Shane McMahon knew they would not stand a chance, as he strikes first, while she strikes to win. She says that Kurt Angle's job as General Manager is "1000% secure." She then introduces Triple H as the man who secured the victory for Raw, and brings him out. Triple H shows up in the usual three-piece suit. Shortly after Triple H shows up, however, so does General Manager Kurt Angle. Angle tells Triple H this is the Olympic Hall of Famer talking to him, not the General Manager, and he tells him that if he tags him from behind like he did last night again, he can take the job and shove it as he will come after him. Stephanie reminds him that he is speaking as General Manager to the COO of WWE, and while she appreciates the intensity, she asks him not to jeopardize his job again. Jason Jordan shows up and wants to fight Triple H, but Angle stops Jordan and says that he is just a general manager while Jordan he is just a competitor. Stephanie tells Angle he does not have the authority to make the match. Jordan asks Triple H if he is a coward. Triple H takes off his jacket. Stephanie tells Jordan that Triple H will tear him apart, and that he is not afraid of anybody in the locker room. Suddenly, Brock Strowman shows up. Strowman gets right up in Triple H's face, and Stephanie almost gets out of the ring. Triple H and Strowman stare eye-to-eye. Triple H steps back, then leaves the ring with Stephanie as Strowman approaches the apron. The crowd chants "You're a coward" as Strowman follows Triple H. Stephanie then announces that since Jordan wants a match and the crowd is so bloodthirsty, Jason Jordan will be facing Braun Strowman tonight. Strowman and Jordan stare off as Angle watches both men.

Angle cannot cancel the match, but Jordan says if he needs him to wrestle, he will wrestle. Jordan says he knows what Angle has done in his career, and that Angle's blood runs through his veins. He is not afraid of Braun Strowman, and when he's done, Strowman will be telling horror stories about him.

Asuka beats Dana Brooke.

It's time for Miz TV. Miz says he made Baron Corbin relevant, but his 15 minutes of fame are over as he has bigger things to deal with than him. His special guest tonight is Roman Reigns. Roman does not show up right away, and Miz introduces him again. Roman fails to show up a second time. As Miz says this is show and that he does not deserve this respect, Roman fails to show up a third time...almost. The Shield's (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns) music hits, and Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins show up along with Roman. Miz says he only invited Roman, but The Shield cannot get enough of each other and that they must be feeling pretty good right now. Ambrose says they do, as they proved to The New Day that they haven't missed a step. Rollins says they proved they are the most dominant three-man team in WWE, and right now, they are pretty much unstoppable. Miz then gives The Shield a Miz TV welcome, and says it is like old times, but one thing bothers him: he has not heard a thank you. When Reigns asks who the "thank you" is supposed to go to, Miz says it is to him. Roman says there will never be a world where The Shield says thanks to The Miz. Miz reminds them that the "Shield reunion tour" started all because of him. He says it was in the same building they are in now that Seth and Dean got back together, and from there, it was not long until they donned the vests again, and says he deserves a "thank you" for that. He has heard it from the fans, but not The Shield. Miz also goes on to claim that he deserves residuals for the new Shield merchandise. Roman says that if The Miz deserves to thank anybody, it is the Houston, Texas fans. The lights go off, then come back on. Miz then calls The Shield "ungrateful," but Roman says The Shield won last night and Miz didn't. The Miz says he is still WWE Intercontinental Champion, but Seth Rollins says it is only a matter of time until he and Ambrose get back on the road to Raw's tag team titles. Roman says if they're going for the tag titles, he should have one too. Rollins gives Reigns ideas of going for the Intercontinental Championship, and Roman says he hopes Miz isn't doing anything tonight, because he's free. He then asks the fans what they think. Suddenly, Bo Dallas tells Roman he cannot just show up on Miz TV and challenge Miz for the title. If Roman wants Miz, he will have to go through him and Curtis Axel. Bo Dallas gets hit with a shot to the throat, and Miz runs away. Curtis Axel is then surrounded by The Shield, and he tries to beg them off. Dean Ambrose surprises him from behind, then Rollins hits Axel with the knee before Ambrose hits him with Dirty Deeds. When Bo Dallas gets up, he is also surrounded by The Shield, who then go on the attack as The Miz watches from the ramp. Bo then falls victim to the three-man powerbomb.

Charly Caruso interviews Braun Strowman. Braun says Jason Jordan not being afraid of him makes him different from everyone else...including Triple H.

Dean Ambrose beats Sheamus after after Seth Rollins dives onto Cesaro as Sheamus readies a Brogue Kick.

Matt Hardy meets Jason Jordan in the locker room. When Jordan asks for pointers, Matt wishes him luck on taking him off his feet and says facing Braun was a humbling experience as he really is a monster among men. He says he has learned a lot in WWE, including that some nights, it's not your night.

Alexa Bliss shows up. Alexa is not happy with all the social media pity, and knows she took Charlotte Flair to her limits. She says Charlotte only won because she got lucky. Survivor Series may not have been her night, but 2017 has been her year. She is still the Goddess of WWE, and there is not a simple woman on the planet who can hold a candle to her. Suddenly, Mickie James shows up. Mickie asks the fans who is sick and tired of hearing the same, worn-out jibber jabber from "Little Miss Biscuit Butt." After a "biscutt butt" chant from the fans, Mickie says Survivor Series is over and it is now back to Raw business. The only business she is concerned with is the Raw Women's Championship. As Alexa asks Mickie if she is joking, Bayley shows up. Bayley agrees with Alexa, saying 2017 has been Alexa's year, but says the year isn't over and she is not the same woman Alexa beat for the Women's title. Bayley says she has to jump over Mickie in line, as the title is hers. As Alexa asks Bayley if she is joking, Sasha Banks shows up. Sasha says the consensus is in and that Raw deserves a better champion, but not a huggable or a highly-decorated champion. She says it deserves a legit boss and not a "little B" like Alexa. Then Alicia Fox shows up. Alicia Fox says that if Raw needs a boss, then the captain of the Raw women's team should have that opportunity, as Raw would not have beaten SmackDown Live two weeks in a row without her guidance. Alexa thanks everyone else in the ring for wasting her time, saying nobody deserves a championship opportunity against her. Suddenly, General Manager Kurt Angle shows up. Angle doesn't mind her leaving, but reminds her that Raw is the show, and that she will get another opportunity to prove herself against the winner of a Fatal 4-Way match, which starts right now.

During the Fatal 4-Way Match between Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James and Alicia Fox, Paige suddenly shows up after a lengthy absence. Paige says, "Did you miss me?" The crowd immediately chants "Yes." Paige then says she has something important to say: she's back. The crowd then chants "Welcome back." Paige then says she didn't come back alone. She then approaches the ring, and Mickie is surrounded and attacked by Sonya Deville Mandy Rose from NXT, who come out through the crowd. Sonya and Mandy go on the attack, and take down Bayley, Mickie and Sasha. Alicia Fox immediately runs away before Mandy hits Mickie with a piledriver and Sonya kicks Sasha in the face. Paige then hits Bayley with the Ram-Paige.

Backstage, Renee Young interviews Paige, Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. It isn't long before Alexa Bliss shows up and says Paige doesn't have to explain herself, saying Mickie James, Alicia Fox, Bayley and Sasha Banks got what they deserved. After Alexa tells Renee to buzz off, Paige introduces Mandy and Sonya to Alexa Bliss. Alexa says it's nice to meet them, but all she gets is a cold, hard stare from them and Paige. Paige then kicks Alexa in the gut, then she, Mandy and Sonya strike until Alexa is laid out.

Jason Jordan beats Braun Strowman by disqualification after a sudden attack from behind by Kane with a steel chair. Kane presses the steel chair on Strowman's throat, then drives the other end of the chair into the steel steps, hurting Strowman in the windpipe and leaving him unable to breathe. Referees and medical staff help Strowman to the back as he violently struggles to breathe.

It is announced that Braun Strowman is refusing medical attention after the assault from Kane.

Before the next match, Enzo Amore - showing up with Noam Dar, Ariya Daivari, Drew Gulak and "The Premiere Athlete" Tony Nese - brags about retaining the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto last night. Enzo says he is still the face of 205 Live, but it was not easy as there was an army of haters. However, the hate didn't matter because he had his army, and says everyone should be thankful as Thanksgiving is right around the corner. He then says Noam Dar, Ariya Daivari, Drew Gulak and Tony Nese are thankful for him. He says that since joining "The 'Zo Train," the ladies can't keep their hands off Noam Dar, Nese has two or three more abs, Daivari has more money and clothes, and Gulak reached more people. Suddenly, Akira Tozawa, Rich Swann, Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali show up. Enzo says if they want to jump on the 'Zo Train, they'll have to prove themselves. Alexander says they're not here for the 'Zo Train, they're here for the Cruiserweight title and they are willing to earn it unlike "a couple of suck-ups." Enzo asks if Kalisto has poisoned their brains, and says the 'Zo Train is the only way to the top, and the guy on top didn't fall there. He says either get on board or get out of the way. Swann tells Enzo to make them go away, then says he can't do it without "his boys." This starts an eight-man brawl after Enzo slips out of the ring.

Mustafa Ali, Rich Swann, Cedric Alexander and Akira Tozawa beat The 'Zo Train (Drew Gulak, "The Premiere Athlete" Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, Noam Dar).

Renee Young interviews General Manager Kurt Angle, who says that Braun Strowman has refused medical help and has left the building, and that he will address Strowman and Kane later. As he checks on Jason Jordan, The Miz shows up and wants his match cancelled. Kurt Angle says no, and tells him to get out. Angle tells Jason Jordan he did not let him down, but Jordan says Matt Hardy was right and that Braun Strowman is a monster among men.

In the ring, Elias plays guitar, and says it is the sound of success before saying nobody here knows what it would sound like. He then says he is in a good mood as Raw did great, then plays a song he wrote. The crowd chants "Let's go, Astros!" Elias then tells everyone that the season is over and to grow up. He then goes back to playing guitar and singing about beating Matt Hardy, then gets interrupted by Matt Hardy. Elias and Matt Hardy go at it, and Matt Hardy goes for the Twist of Fate. Elias pushes Matt away and gets out of the ring, but Matt wants more.

Roman Reigns beats The Miz to become the WWE Intercontinental Champion after Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins show up and fight Sheamus and Cesaro at ringside following the latter team's distraction of Roman Reigns.

He says that Baron Corbin's message to him has brought a whole new focus, and he has never been so focused as a WWE Superstar, and he will unleash all that he has on Baron Corbin. When asked how Team Raw would react if he lost tonight, Miz says he has made it his mission to make the Intercontinental Championship the most prestigious title in the world, and losing is not in his vocabulary. When asked if he is feeling any pressure from the rest of the Raw roster to beat Baron Corbin, he says nobody puts pressure on himself like he does, and that he puts more pressure on himself than anyone else can, as this is why he has lasted so long and why he has proven he belongs in the main event. As for whether Team Raw is good enough to beat Team SmackDown, he says that the side he is on is always superior because he is always there to bring it up, and says Team Raw will win because he is on their roster.

Before the next match, Enzo Amore says that Tuesday was Kalisto's birthday, but all he got in appreciation for it was having his face being shoved in it.

Before the next match, Kevin Owens says he and Sami Zayn did not come to the WWE to compete with "two clowns" like Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango). Sami calls this match a disgrace and says it is an insult to the very two best on SmackDown that they have been resigned to this. Kevin Owens says they are in the same building where he won his first Intercontinental title, and says he and Sami should be making history. However, they are not because of SmackDown Live General Manager Shane McMahon. They say that if Breezango want to play detectives, they should be getting to the bottom of the conspiracy against them or why Shane is still General Manager of SmackDown Live. Sami says they ran last week because that was not their fight. Breezango show up. Breeze says he got a tip of two "optical offenders" antagonizing the crowd in Houston, Texas, and Fandango says it's them. Sami mocks them. Fandango says he will save the show from two fashion felons, then he and Breeze pull out tickets.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn beat Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango).

Dasha Fuentes interviews "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles. Styles is not divulging his strategy, and says this match is whether or not he fears Brock Lesnar.

He will have to be phenomenal. Jinder Mahal is suddenly seen laughing quietly at Styles before leaving.

Before the next match, Xavier Woods says it will be The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, Woods). Tonight, The New Day will show they are the most dominant faction to set foot in WWE. Kofi Kingston mentions Raw General Manager Kurt Angle taking SmackDown Live under siege and taking The New Day, and says it took Raw three weeks to steal their idea and not execute it half as well as SmackDown Live. Kofi Kingston then says The Shield has guts, but dogs will be dogs and The New Day will go Bob Barker on The Hounds of Justice. Big E says it is a dog-eat-dog world, and eventually, The Shield will turn on each other again. Big E then says The Shield talks about brotherhood, but proclaims that there is no better brotherhood than The New Day.

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns) beat The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, Xavier Woods) with a three-man powerbomb off the middle rope on Kofi Kingston. Raw is leading 1-0.

He says Lesnar will rip him apart and make him regret beating Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship.

Before the next match, The Usos say that if Sheamus and Cesaro are "The Bar," that makes them bar tenders and pole vaulters. They then welcome them to the Uso Penitentiary.

Honor Roll - Ring of Honor recap for November 18, 2017

"The Villain" Marty Scurll announces at the start of the show that there will be an eight-man tag team match between Bullet Club ("The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, Scurll, "Hangman" Adam Page) and Flip Gordon, Scorpio Sky and Coast To Coast (Shaheem Ali and LSG), which he jokes have named themselves "High Spots of Bother), with Page saying they're just a bunch of "spot monkeys" before the two of them have a laugh. Matt asks Flip where he thinks he's going, and Scurll tells Flip he is going south, as when Bullet Club is done with him, he won't be able to flip again before they welcome him into Ring of Honor.

Kenny King guests on commentary for the next match.

"The Last Real Man" Silas Young beats Jonathan Gresham to move on to the Four Corners Survival match for the ROH World Television Championship at Final Battle.

We hear from The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O'Ryan, Vinny Marseglia). Vinny Marseglia says everybody knows about the conspiracy against them, and TK O'Ryan tells everyone who doesn't know yet to smarten up, as there is no other explanation as to why they are not holding the tag team or six-man tag titles. Next week, thy have a tag team title shot against The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley), and when they win the titles, they will take them to Final Battle< as they have become martyrs as of late. Marseglia say that they will become the tag team champions, and the Machine Guns will become the victims.

We see footage from last week of Jay Briscoe attacking Bully Ray for "going out like a bitch." When Tommy Dreamer confronts Jay, Mark Briscoe shows up and kicks Dreamer in the groin before hitting him with a steel chair.

War Machine (Hanson and Raymond Rowe) are attacked by The Addiction ("The Almighty" Christopher Daniels and "The Heavy Metal Rebel" Frankie Kazarian) before the next match. During the match, Raymond Rowe inadvertently tosses Daniels into a fan, causing her to bleed from the nose.

The show cuts to Coleman's Pulpit, and this week's guest is Kenny King once again. Kenny King says that when you win a title, that is when the work begins, and at Final Battle, it will be no different when his opponents bend the knee. Coleman tells him not to let them do him like they did on The Bachelorette, then tells him he has a surprise for him: Ring of Honor is using him for ratings and that he did not earn the Television title. He says that he is using his daughter for ratings and money, and says where he comes from, that is called "pimping." This irritates Kenny, who calls Coleman "a false prophet" and "a false bishop." He says he has no time for this and that he is a real king, and that on a chess board, a king is higher than a bishop. What he does have time for is putting the Television title on the line against him in Florida. He says he will find the ROH crew, then he has two words for him: "Check Mate."

Jay Lethal guests on commentary for the next match. Also before the next match, "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes shows up and tells Flip Gordon, Scorpio Sky and Coast To Coast (Shaheem Ali and LSG) that their pipe dream of beating Bullet Club (Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, "The Villain" Marty Scurll, "Hangman" Adam Page) is just that - a pipe dream - and not unlike Dalton Castle beating him for the ROH WOrld Championship at Final Battle. Cody says everybody likes the guy who is chasing the title, but after the deep breath and the plunge, Dalton Castle is nothing but a choke artist.

Bullet Club (Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, "The Villain" Marty Scurll, "Hangman" Adam Page beat Flip Gordon, Scorpio Sky and Coast To Coast (Shaheem Ali and LSG).
