SmackDown’s men’s and women’s division teams for Survivor Series took shape on this week’s episode.
Daniel Bryan and The Miz were made co-captains of the men’s team, with Miz picking Shane McMahon to join them and Bryan agreeing with it. Bryan picked Rey Mysterio for the fourth spot, but Miz said he had to impress against Andrade “Cien” Almas. Bryan and Miz then chose wrestlers to face off in the main event. Bryan selected Jeff Hardy and Miz picked Samoa Joe.
Following Joe’s win, the episode closed with dissension between Team SmackDown after Joe got in Bryan’s face and Bryan attacked him.
Charlotte Flair, Asuka, Naomi, Carmella, and Sonya Deville were chosen for the women’s team, which led to an angle where Mandy Rose came out instead of Charlotte and wanted to know why she wasn’t picked.
Five tag teams from Raw will also face five tag teams from SmackDown in a traditional Survivor Series elimination match. The Usos will captain the SmackDown team after defeating The New Day last night, and they picked New Day to team with them at the pay-per-view.
Becky Lynch responded to Ronda Rousey’s comments from Raw. She issued an open challenge, which was answered by NXT’s Nikki Cross.
