We learned who several of the women who will represent the red brand against Nikki Bella’s Team SmackDown at Survivor Series are tonight (Oct. 31) on Raw.
The champion, Charlotte Flair, will of course serve as the captain. With Sasha Banks apparently nursing injuries from last night’s Hell in a Cell main event (at least according to the Queen), the second spot went to the wrestler rumored to be the next #1 contender, Bayley.
After some trash talk, Charlotte took a page out of General Manager Mick Foley’s book and immediately pitted two of her team against on another. But it wasn’t Dana Brooke as Bayley guessed... instead, it was the return of Nia Jax!
The champ was also very happy when Jax not only defeated Bayley, but seemed to add to B’s list of injuries.
Seems like an odd strategy, but, hey, I’ve never captained an elimination match team at a WWE pay-per-view (PPV). What do I know?
For their men’s and women’s five-on-five teams, Raw seems to be banking on having a big hoss to make up for the fact that all the teammates want to kill each other.
Maybe New Day will build their tag team squad differently.
