With Daniel Bryan and The Miz being named co-captains earlier in the night, the SmackDown men’s Survivor Series team came together throughout this week’s episode.
Despite having different perspectives on leadership, Bryan and Miz actually worked well together for most of SmackDown. Their first order of business was offer Shane McMahon a spot on the team and he accepted.
Bryan’s next suggestion was Rey Mysterio and The Miz agreed to it after the Lucha Legend defeated Andrade “Cien” Almas later in the night.
With only one slot remaining, Bryan picked Jeff Hardy and Miz selected Samoa Joe. In the main event of this week’s SmackDown, Hardy and Joe faced off to secure the final spot on the squad.

In a relatively quick match, Joe choked out Hardy and picked up the win. Then all hell broke loose.

Right after his win, Joe went over to the announce desk to mock Bryan. Then Bryan snapped and beat-up Joe, locked him a YES Lock, started punching out The Miz and finished it off by hip tossing McMahon.
Team chemistry? What’s that?
