WWE SmackDown Live Women’s Division Invades Raw Before Survivor Series

On the go-home edition of Raw for this Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view, the full lineup for the red brand’s women’s traditional five-on-five team was announced by team captain Alexa Bliss, and then all hell broke loose.

Bliss initially announced the first four team members as:

  • Natalya – who was sent home earlier in the night due to the emotional distress caused by the Riott Squad earlier in the night
  • Mickie James
  • Nia Jax
  • Tamina

And then, because she’s Alexa Bliss, she had to add a bit of spice to the situation.

The ‘Goddess’ announced that the show’s main event would decide the fifth and final member of the team. The competitors? Sasha Banks and Bayley. Of course.

Nonetheless, the match was ruled a double DQ when James, Jax and Tamina ambushed both participants, and Bliss announced that Ruby Riott would in fact be the fifth team member.

Cameras then rushed backstage, where we saw SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch with the Dis-Arm-Her locked in on her opponent for this Sunday, Ronda Rousey. Lynch let go, and proceeded to march down the ramp to confront the rest of the Raw women’s division in the ring.

She hadn’t come alone though, and the entire SmackDown Live women’s division ambushed that of Raw. Ronda Rousey soon ran out to try and help her team, but was met this simple equation: Becky Lynch + chair = pain.

SmackDown Live ran back through the crowd, leaving Raw‘s female roster laid out around ringside.

Steph McMahon then had a go at Baron Corbin for allowing it to happen, and the show went off the air.

One has to think there will be some sort of follow-up or retaliation on SmackDown Live tomorrow night.
