Nov. 15 (UPI) — Raw got their revenge on Smackdown Tuesday as they invaded the blue brand just days before the two programs go head-to-head at Survivor Series.
Raw’s The Shield led the charge as Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose entered through the audience during Smackdown’s main event between The New Day and best friends Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
Owens and Zayn, still having issues with Smackdown commissioner Shane McMahon and feeling slighted by not being invited onto the blue brand’s mens Survivor Series team, left The New Day to fight off The Shield on their own as WWE’s two most dominant groups collided.
An all-out brawl then took place as more Raw and Smackdown Superstars began running to the ring to enter into the fight including The Usos, Cesaro and Sheamus and McMahon. The tide of the battle turned, however, once Raw general manager Kurt Angle brought in Braun Strowman. The Monster Among Men helped his team gain the advantage and helped cleared the ring.
The Shield, Angle and Strowman then focused on McMahon who received a Triple Powerbomb and an Angle Slam. Raw and Smackdown battle for brand supremacy at Survivor Series on Sunday.
Tuesday’s program also featured Charlotte Flair winning the Smackdown Women’s Championship when she defeated Natalya in a competitive match inside her hometown of Charlotte, N.C.
Flair won the bout after surviving Natalya’s Sharpshooter and locking in her signature Figure-Eight Leglock which forced The Queen of Harts to tap out.
As Flair celebrated in the ring and walked up the ramp, she was surprised by the appearance of her father, the legendary Ric Flair who has not been seen on WWE television since facing a life-threatening illness. The pair embraced each other and held up the Smackdown Women’s Championship with pride.
Flair will now be taking on Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series as opposed to joining the Smackdown women’s team against Raw.
Other moments from Smackdown included general manager Daniel Bryan welcoming new WWE Champion AJ Styles and stating that The Phenomenal One will defeat Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series; Baron Corbin successfully defending his United States Championship against Sin Cara; and Jimmy Uso defeating Chad Gable.
