Paige, Shane McMahon, The Miz and Daniel Bryan In-Ring Segment:
Paige has as something to say to her native people. It’s always good to be home. She wants everyone’s help to bring out the SmackDown Commissioner, Shane McMahon. We see footage of McMahon winning the WWE World Cup Tournament. Since Shane is the best in the world, we need a picture with the trophy. Shane says that he’s not the best in the world because of the talent here. The trophy belongs to Smackdown. When Miz could not compete, Shane acted on instinct and he injected himself into the match. SmackDown had to be the superior brand. We are two weeks away from Survivor Series. Shane and Paige goes over the match card.
Daniel Bryan will be the captain for the Men’s SmackDown Survivor Series Team. Bryan says that it’s an honor to be chosen as the team captain. Bryan is immediately interrupted by The Miz. Really? Daniel Bryan? Miz fought heroically in two matches only to suffer an injury. The trophy is 2/3 his. They’re co-best in the world. How would the trophy be split? Shane reminds Miz that he would have been fired if he lost. Miz has never been so injured he could not wrestle, unlike Bryan. Miz deserves to be the team captain for Smackdown. Shane has changed his mind, so Miz and Bryan will be co-captains.
Daniel Bryan, The Miz and Shane McMahon Backstage Segment:
Bryan and Miz are bickering with each other. Shane needs a team to bring this home. He wants people to feel uncomfortable. The Miz and Daniel bring out the best in each other. Shane needs to know the other three members of the team. Miz has his first pick and it’s Shane. Shane tells Miz not to suck up. Bryan agrees with the Miz. Nobody has more on the line than Shane. You showed at the World Cup how much you care about Smackdown. Miz will let Bryan have the next pick.

Second Daniel Bryan & The Miz Backstage Segment:
Becky Lynch & Nikki Cross In-Ring Segment:
Ronda said that she was the last woman in the world to provoke. Who the hell is Ronda Rousey to tell the champ anything? Ronda holds a championship, but she is not a champion. Not yet. A champion wills herself through adversity, injury, defeat, and doubt. You haven’t been tested, yet. Becky is the man and that’s why she is the champion and you are not. Winning comes so easily to you that when you meet the man at Survivor Series, your titanium body will be defeated by your weak mind. Becky has been tested daily, weekly, and monthly.
Becky is the most relentless person that Ronda has met. Last night, you went on Raw and mocked her for the road she has traveled and the jobs she has taken to pay her way to get where she is. Becky was not handpicked, but here she is. She wasn’t meant to be the main event, but here she is. She wasn’t meant to be the talk of the entire industry but here she is. She is the champ, the only champ.
Becky should be happy because she has Ronda’s respect? It’s not her respect that Becky is coming after, it’s her arm. She does not care if you are the baddest bitch on the planet because she will make you hers. Becky has gotten herself all fired up and she wants to fight. If there is anyone brave enough to step up to the champ and get their arm mangled. Nikki Cross from NXT makes her way down to the ring. Nikki wants to play with Becky. Becky doesn’t play, she fights.
