Three weeks after a ruthless assault at the hands of Jey Uso, Daniel Bryan returned to get retribution in a brutal main event showdown. Plus, Universal Champion Roman Reigns disrespected WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during their Survivor Series Contract Signing and so much more.


The New Day & The Street Profits def. Sami Zayn, King Corbin, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode

Raw Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods returned to the blue brand to talk about their upcoming Survivor Series showdown against SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits and do their best impression of The Undertaker. It wasn’t long, however, before Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn interrupted in order to bad mouth The Deadman as well as his own Survivor Series opponent United States Champion Bobby Lashley.

But just as the Power of Positivity was beginning to mock Zayn,  King Corbin, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode all decided to join the party and voice their own issues with Kingston & Woods. Although the war of words descended upon mayhem and left Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods on the wrong side of a 4-on-2 sneak assault, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins emerged to even the odds and, together, The New Day and The Street Profits cleared the ring.

As a result of the bedlam, the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Champion put their differences aside and teamed up against Corbin, Zayn, Ziggler and Roode in an Eight-Man Tag Team Match. And in the final moments of the fast paced contest, Zayn found himself unwillingly tagged into the match. As he disputed this, The Street Profits took charge and cleared the way for Ford to leap into the heavens from the top rope and crash down on the Intercontinental Champion for the three-count.


Natalya def. Tamina in a Last Chance Survivor Series Qualifying Match

After weeks of insisting that she be named to the Survivor Series Women’s Team, Natalya found herself in a Last Chance Survivor Series Qualifying Match against Tamina for the opportunity to qualify to represent SmackDown. And as Survivor Series teammates Bayley and Bianca Belair sat in on commentary, The Queen of Harts ultimately made Tamina tap out to the Sharpshooter. 

In the wake of her victory, the members of the Women’s Survivor Series Team – Bayley, Belair, Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott – joined Natalya in the square circle in celebration.


Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns make their Survivor Series Match official Contract Signing

After reclaiming the WWE Championship from Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre returned to SmackDown to take part in an official Contract Signing to face Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Survivor Series. 

After making his opponent wait, Reigns finally came to the ring. In the intense exchange that followed, McIntyre advised Reigns to enjoy the last two days of peace to prepare for war. In response, The Big Dog disrespected his opponent by calling McIntyre a secondary champion. He said that one day, he would love Reigns for lessons he taught him and he promised McIntyre would always be his favorite number two.


Murphy def. Seth Rollins

After Murphy betrayed Seth Rollins by helping Rey Mysterio to victory, the self-proclaimed Savior of SmackDown was out to put an end to his former disciple for good.

Aaliyah, Rey and Dominick were all on hand to cheer Murphy on at ringside. Nevertheless, Rollins was unhinged from start to finish as he set out to punish his former disciple and any member of the Mysterio that got in his way. But, in the final moments, Murphy would reign supreme when he hit a pair of stunning knees and the devastating Murphy’s Law for the win.

In the aftermath, the victorious Murphy was then joined by Aalyah and the Mysterio family as they celebrated the biggest win of his career.


Carmella attacks Sasha Banks as she was sharing the stage with Raw Women’s Champion Asuka

SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks came face-to-face with Raw Women’s Champion Asuka two days before their Survivor Series showdown. Although the longstanding rivalry between the two titleholders was clearly still as heated as ever, it was ultimately Carmella who set things ablaze.

As both Superstars were focused on their imminent showdown, Carmella used the opportunity to launch a third sneak assault on The Boss in order to show just how untouchable she is.


Daniel Bryan def. Jey Uso

After being attacked by Jey Uso three weeks ago at the urging of Universal Champion Roman Reigns, WWE’s “Yes!” Man returned to battle Uso in a match of pure retribution.

It was fierce brawl from the word go, with an unhinged Uso screaming that it wasn’t personal as he viciously attempted to finish the job he started the last time. In contrast, Bryan resisted with the heart of a true warrior, in as personal a fashion as it gets.

In the height of the action, just when it looked like Uso was on his way to victory, Bryan managed to get his knees up in time to thwart the Uso Splash off the top rope attempt before rolling Jey up for the pin. 

As SmackDown went off the air, Daniel Bryan let the WWE Universe in the “Yes!” chant.
