NIKKI BELLA VS CARMELLA
Carmella taunted Nikki by giving her the “you can’t see me” treatment. Nikki chased Carmella out of the ring, then back in. Carmella went after the neck of Nikki, but a face-buster allowed Bella to take over. Dropkick by Nikki and Carmella tried to regroup outside. Carmella grabbed Nikki by the neck and gave her a neck-breaker from under the bottom rope in the ring, to the floor. Back in the ring, Nikki was able to kick out on a pin attempt. Carmella caught Nikki with a side kick following a surprise roll-up by Nikki. “You’re not so fearless now!” shouted Carmella. Sleeper by Carmella until the crowd woke up and got behind Nikki. Nikki tried to find comfort in the corner, but Carmella did not let up. Another sleeper. This time the crowd got into it sooner. Bronco Buster missed and both ladies were down, six minutes in. Through the crowd came Charlotte, wearing her Raw Women’s Title, and carrying a ticket. She took a seat at ringside. They went to break at 7:02.
Back at 10:18 with Nikki fighting off ANOTHER sleeper hold. Charlotte was still at her seat in the crowd. Alabama Slam by Bella. The fight went outside and, whaddya know, right in front of Charlotte. Charlotte cheered obnoxiously for Nikki, leading to Nikki striking her with a forearm. Nikki got the best of her at ringside, and the ref called for the bell.
The winner of the match: No Contest
Post Match: As Nikki continued to beat down Charlotte in the ring, the rest of the Raw women ran in to help. Carmella came to, and tried to help Nikki, but was fended off. The Smackdown women came out and everyone brawled. The idea that Carmella, in a heated feud with Nikki, would help her just because they’re on the same brand, it somewhat ridiculous. Same with the Raw babyface women teaming up with the heel women to do a five-on-one attack on a Smackdown babyface. What a mess, this booking. Anyway, the big spots were Nia Jax crashing into the barricade and collapsing it when Becky Lynch moved, and Naomi flying off the top and onto Dana Brooke, Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox, and Charlotte. The Smackdown women stood tall.
Backstage: The Undertaker’s music was again heard, and a shadow of the man on the wall was shown.
TEAM VAUDEVILLAINS VS TEAM HYPE BROS
The match was joined in progress, with team captains Rhyno and Heath Slater sitting this one out. Jimmy Uso tagged himself in and Jason Jordan wasn’t too pleased with it. The Usos worked over Mikey for a bit. “We want Slater” chant, but the man isn’t even in the match. Mojo Rawley tagged in and went to work on Simon Gotch. Cross-body by Gotch, caught and slammed by Rawley. Ryder came in and delivered a neck-breaker for two. A chop to Mojo only fired him up. “We want Rhyno” chant now. Viktor relieved Gotch and went on the offensive against Ryder. Middle-rope dropkick by Ryder and a clothesline sent Viktor over the top. Wrecking Ball dropkick on Konnor, but Viktor attacked Ryder from behind outside. The two sides nearly came to blows outside the ring as they went to break, 4:25 into what has been shown
Back from break The Usos take out everyone as they go soaring over the ropes to the outside. Meanwhile back in the ring American Alpha still in control with the double team executing the Grand Alphatude for the three count
The winners of the match: Team Hype Bros
THE CUTTING EDGE
Edge says it feels good to be on the 900th episode of Smackdown and he bleeds blue and helped build this show and has a vested interest in this Sunday's 5 on 5 Elimination Match.
He brings out Team Smackdown. Edge says he's been watching Smackdown since the brand extension and sees it as a land of opportunity and a beacon of light and wants to shake one man's hand who personifies opportunity
Edge goes to shake James Ellsworth's hand. Ellsworth says it would be an honour to stand next to Edge for a 5 second pose. AJ says no it was stupid then it's stupid now. No one cares about Ellsworth or Edge and tells Edge to do his job and ask questions to someone who really matters
Edge asks what Randy Orton's joining The Wyatt Family is all about. Bray says the Randy Orton Edge once knew is dead and not to worry about this Sunday
Shane says no one has to get along and like each other but for one night they need to all be on the same page. AJ may be the champion and the face but one thing is for sure this is the Smackdown Theme. The Money Show and since AJ likes cliches maybe AJ will be competing on Shane O'Mac down
AJ calls it stupid and is the bigger man by getting along with Dean Ambrose calling him a hot head. They begin arguing but are interrupted by The Undertaker's music bringing out the Phenom
Undertaker has the mic and says he's back taking souls and digging holes. Survivor Series was where The Undertaker was born and Smackdown has always been his home. That brings him to the second reason he's out which gets an "Undertaker" chant going
At this year's Survivor Series there's no reason to fear failure but if they fail they will have reason to fear The Deadman. And concludes by saying Team Raw better Rest In Peace
