WWE also announced that it has agreed to a broadcast deal with PPTV, which will allow wrestling fans in China to stream Raw and SmackDown in Mandarin starting later this month. The real highlight of the press event, however, was John Cena addressing the crowd in Mandarin.

Cena and Triple H also got to meet Yao Ming, who would make even the Great Khali look tiny.
