Shane O’Mac is getting Team Blue absolutely hyped and inspired before they battle the very best from Monday Night Raw at this Sunday’s Survivor Series. Shane says that they’ll show who’s the dominant brand, and after Sunday, they won’t be known as the “B-Show,” but “The Show.”
SmackDown GM Daniel Bryan Has Something To Say
Daniel Bryan says that he’s lucky to be back after getting choke-slammed to hell by Kane on Raw. Bryan says he shouldn’t have went over to Raw alone. But Daniel Bryan is much like SmackDown, if you knock them down, they’ll come back and hit you twice as hard. Raw is looking pretty weak. It got ransacked by SmackDown a couple weeks back. The GM mentions there’s a good chance that the red brand will be looking to get some payback tonight. Bryan promises to provide a much better show than Raw, and starts off tonight’s show by introducing the new WWE Champion…
AJ Styles comes to a huge pop. Daniel Bryan says that Brock Lesnar has his own hype-man, so it’s only appropriate for Styles to have his own too. Bryan builds up Styles, while mocking Paul Heyman’s promo style. Bryan says that Brock is big and his head is thick, but he will fall to Styles at Survivor Series. Styles says that Heyman is wrong, this isn’t a Rocky movie, this is AJ Styles Production. At Survivor Series, he’ll beat Lesnar and prove that SmackDown is the A-show.

Ric Flair Surprises Charlotte after her championship win
Woooooooo!!!! Ric Flair shows just why he will always be The Man. But really…this is his daughter’s Charlotte’s moment. She’s just won her seventh championship in the WWE. She’s just nine title reigns shy of tying with her father’s 16 world title reigns. Now, she can add the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship to her long list of accomplishments. By the way, she’s only been on the main roster a little over two years. I wonder how many title reigns she’ll have by the time she’s her dad’s age.
Jimmy Uso vs. Chad Gable
Jimmy Uso takes control of the match early on, putting the punishment on Chad Gable. Uso has Gable tanged up in the ropes. Gable’s partner Shelton Benjamin jumps up on the ring apron, which distracts Uso. Gable capitalizes on this distraction and takes out Jimmy Uso by the knee.

The New Day vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
Before the match, The New Day hype their match against The Shield at Survivor Series. They say that The New Day will never betray each other and will be still going strong by WrestleMania season while The Shield will already be split up. Why? Because New Day rocks!
Big E of the New Day controls the early moment of the match, as he spears Kevin Owens into the corner. Owens turns the tide and hurls E into the barricade as we go to the commercial break.
When we return from the break Sami Zayn is in controlling Xavier Woods with a submission hold. Owens gets the tag and locks Woods into a sleeper hold. Woods rallies out, punching Owens in the gut, but KO fires back with a kick and a DDT. Owens isn’t able to put away Woods with a pin, so he grabs him by the head and brings him over to Sami Zayn.
Zayn gets the tag and continues the punishment on Woods. But Woods fights out, knocks KO off the ring apron and tags in Big E who dominates Sami Zayn. Big E is sending Zayn to Suplex City. Xavier Woods takes to the air and knocks Owens out of the ring.
But then…The Shield’s music hits. The crowd goes nuts.
The Shield surround the ring. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens exits the ring. The Shield come in to assault The New’s Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods. The Shield are stomping out The New Day. The Usos run down to the ring and assist The New Day. Sheamus and Cesaro are out next. The ring is enveloped in absolute chaos.
