Welcome to Smackdown Live. We kick things off with Daniel Bryan in the ring and Bryan says SmackDown ransacking Raw is something he did not agree with because he knows how vindictive Stephanie McMahon can be. But if Raw shows up they are ready and he is proud of Smackdown and proud to lead Team Blue into Survivor Series to prove that Smackdown has the better performers than Raw. Bryan then introduces the new WWE Champion AJ Styles
Before Styles can say anything Bryan says on Raw their champion has his own personal advocate and volunteers to be the advocate for AJ Styles for tonight. Bryan reminds everyone of Paul Heyman's five reasons for ordering Survivor Series on the WWE Network this Sunday
He agrees with everything Heyman said except for point F5 where Styles would be brutalized, victimized and conquered. Bryan says the one thing about Lesnar is anytime he's in trouble or gets uncomfortable or is pushed into deep water, he quits. AJ Styles will push Brock Lesnar into deep water.
Heyman brags about Lesnar's size and weight but Bryan says when you're that big and pushed into deep water you last all but 10 minutes then you begin to drain. Lesnar is big and strong but can't keep up with the Phenomenal One
Heyman gave everyone five reasons to watch. Bryan is going to give only one. To see a beast be mentally defeated and mentally conquered. Styles says he agrees with Heyman he is the underdog but this isn't a Rocky movie this is an AJ Styles Production and at Survivor Series he will find a way to beat Brock Lesnar and prove that Smackdown is the A show and Smackdown is the house that AJ Styles built
