WWE is making their last European swing of the year, so in case you had other things you wanted to do tonight, we’ll know what’s coming our way on SmackDown before its regular 8PM Eastern broadcast here in the U.S. of A.
The blue brand follows Raw’s lead and hits Glasgow, Scotland’s SSE Hydro for this week’s episode. Thanks to the five hour time difference between the United Kingdom and the East coast of the U.S. of A., that means advance reports about what goes down on a show which is scheduled to feature Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss for the Women’s championship, the latest on Randy Wyatt and much more!
We'll still be watching along with our usual live blog & open thread. You can join the fun when the show broadcasts in the States here.
But you don’t have to wait for that. The show is set to start at 7PM local time, with a Main Event taping. Spoilers should start pouring in for the flagship show at 3PM Eastern.
As the General likes to say, unwrap that present early:
- The men’s Survivor Series team is out first. Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose & Baron Corbin are joined by James Ellsworth and Commissioner Shane McMahon. Ellsworth is named the official mascot for Team Blue. Shane makes a six-man tag for later... Wyatt, Harper & Orton vs. Ambrose, Corbin & Ellsworth
- Naomi def. Natalya. Nikki Bella was on commentary, and the finish was a roll-up that came after "coach" Natty left the ring to separate Carmella, who showed up to argue with the captain.
- Corbin informs Shane he's not working the six-man, so McMahon puts Kane with Dean & James and makes him a match against Kalisto.
- Corbin vs. Kalisto never starts because the Lone Wolf attacked before the bell. The segment ended when Baron went down with an apparent knee injury on the apron and Kalisto attacked his leg until they stopped. No word if it's legit or a work. (UPDATE: sounds like it's a work)
- It was announced that Corbin is out of Survivor Series... no word on replacement.
- Becky Lynch def. Alexa Bliss to retain her Women's title. HOWEVER... Alexa had a foot on the rope the ref didn't notice.
- Brian Kendrick vs. Kalisto is announced for Survivor Series, with the stipulation being if Kalisto wins, he not only gets the title, but the Cruiserweight division comes to SmackDown.
- Curt Hawkins def. Apollo Crews
- Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz for the IC title announced for next week on the 900th episode
- Bray Wyatt pinned James Ellsworth to win the main event for his team; Ellsworth reportedly got a monster pop when he first tagged into the match
- Daniel Bryan revealed SHANE WILL REPLACE CORBIN ON THE SURVIVOR SERIES TEAM!
