A huge brawl breaks up between the RAW and SmackDown teams. It is kind of weird that the heels who are in a deep personal grudge against the faces would let go off their egos and help each other is somewhat perplexing.
The same with both the teams. Nia Jax crashes into the barricade, when Becky moves out of the way at the last minute. Naomi flies off the top onto Dana Brooke, Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox and Charlotte. The SmackDown women stand tall.
We hear the music of Undertaker being played and we see the shadow of a man. The dead man is here!!
Team Vaudevillains vs Hype Bros: Rhyno and Slater are out at ring side for the match. Teams are joined for the match. Jimmy tags himself in from Jason Jordan, who obviously is not very pleased. Usos walk over Mikey. Mojo tags himself in and works on Simon Gotch who hits a cross body, only to be caught and slammed by Rawley. Ryder delivers the neck breaker for a two count.
Crowd is chanting for both Heath Slater and Rhyno, but they’re not in the match. Viktor gets some offense on Ryder. Ryder hits a middle rope drop kick and clothesline sending Viktor to the outside. He hits a wrecking ball on Konnor, but Viktor attacks Ryder from behind. The two sides nearly come to blows. The Usos take out everyone. Back in the ring, American Alpha are still in control and hit the Grand Alphatude for the win.
The winners: Team Hype Bros
And now, the moment we have all been waiting for. The Rated R ‘Suuuuuupppper Staaaar’ as Tony Chimel put it, Edge, makes his comeback to SmackDown. The ring is set up for his cutting edge. Edge says that it feels great to be back on the 900th episode and that he bleeds blue and helped build this show. He added that he has a vested interest in this Sunday’s match.
He calls out Team SmackDown. Edge comments that he has been watching SmackDown Live since the brand extension and that he sees SmackDown as the land of opportunity. He says he wants to shake one man’s hand, the man who personifies opportunity.
Edge goes to shake James Ellsworth’s hand, who says that it would be an honor to stand with Edge for a five second pose. AJ calls it stupid. He says it was stupid then and is stupid now. He says no one cares about Ellsworth or Edge and tells Edge to do his job of asking questions to someone who really matters.
Edge talks to Orton about him joining the Wyatt family. Bray interjects and says that the Orton that Edge once knew is dead now and asks Edge not to worry about this Sunday.
Shane says no one has to get along with each other, but just for night, they all have to be on the same page. AJ may be the face that runs the place, the WWE World Heavyweight champion, but only one thing is certain, and that is the SmackDown Live theme.
AJ calls it stupid and says he is the bigger man, by getting along with Dean Ambrose. They begin arguing with each other, till the lights go out and the Undertaker’s music place. Taker makes his way to the ring.
Taker gets the mic and says that he has two reasons for being here tonight. Reason 1, that WrestleMania is no longer what he is going to be defined by. He says that he is back to digging holes and taking souls. Reason 2 is that Survivor Series was where Taker was born and SmackDown was and is always his home. The second reason is that at this year’s Survivor Series, there is no reason to fear failure, but if they fail, they will have to fear the Undertaker. He concludes by saying Team RAW better Rest in Peace.
Okay, I have goosebumps right now. Does this mean that Taker would be facing the loser of SmackDown Live? Which means Team RAW is going to go over? Taker has faced almost everyone on the team, except AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose. So, what does this mean? We’ll know what transpires at Survivor Series! Stay tuned for more!
