With one spot left going into Survivor Series, the final member of SmackDown’s women’s division team for tonight’s pay-per-view was revealed on the pre-show.
A backstage segment officially confirmed that Mandy Rose will be on SmackDown’s team, with her joining Naomi, Asuka, Carmella & Sonya Deville. Naomi was also revealed as the team captain before announcing Rose for the final spot.
Charlotte Flair was originally set for Team SmackDown, but she’s facing Ronda Rousey tonight due to Becky Lynch being out of the match due to injury.
When SmackDown’s women’s team was revealed earlier this month, there was a storyline where Rose came out instead of Charlotte and cut a promo asking why she wasn’t chosen. She insulted everyone and brawled with Naomi. After being announced for the team tonight, Rose mentioned being a little too truthful during that segment.
Nia Jax, Tamina, Mickie James, Natalya & Ruby Riott are on Team Raw. Alexa Bliss is the captain for the team. There was also an angle on the Survivor Series pre-show where Bliss threatened to replace Natalya and Riott if they couldn’t get along.
