SmackDown Live kicks-off with Shane O’Mac coming to the ring, the fans are chanting his name.

Shane begins by clarifying why SD Live invaded Raw last week. He says that the reason goes way back in history and that SD has always been looked at as the inferior brand. That’s still the case all the way up to the top with his sister Stephanie all the way down to the lowest part of the RAW common denominator. To change that perception, they picked up Daniel Bryan as the General Manager, went live, and created the land of opportunity. That wasn’t quite enough. They had a team meeting and decided the best way to make an impact was to go on RAW and kick them right in the mouth. An “Under Siege” chant picks up and McMahon thanks everyone for coming to the events and tuning into their show.

Shane then says that things got uncomfortable when Daniel Bryan was sent to RAW and attacked. McMahon says it was Kane that attacked him but he asks where Stephanie and Kurt were. There will be hell to pay for that attack. At Survivor Series, Kurt Angle said he will bring his gold medal, Braun Strowman, and three other RAW superstars because they’re meeting in their ring. McMahon’s team consists of Randy Orton, three of Smackdown’s finest superstars, and Shane McMahon himself as Team Captain! Shane signs-off and leaves.

Bobby Roode makes his entrance. He’ll face Dolph Ziggler in a Best 2-out-of-3 Falls Match after the break. The winner will be a member of Team Smackdown Live at Survivor Series.

*Commercial Break*

We return and Dolph Ziggler makes his silent entrance.

2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match
Bobby Roode Vs. Dolph Ziggler

The bell rings, and they circle the ring before Ziggler goes for a takedown. Ziggler rolls him up for a one count. Ziggler tries to keep him grounded, but Roode gets to his feet. Roode whips him off, but Ziggler shoulder blocks him down. Ziggler hits the ropes, but Roode floors him with a back elbow. Roode blocks a superkick and goes for a Glorious DDT, but Ziggler powers him to the corner and shoulders him in the midsection a few times.

Ziggler taunts the crowd and turns to get floored by a clothesline from Roode. Roode puts him in the corner before having a whip to the corner reversed. Roode boots him back and hits a blockbuster off the second rope for a two count. Roode chops the chest a few times. Ziggler tries to fight back, but Roode gives him a hip toss over the top rope. Roode gets the crowd to shout, “GLORIOUS!” Ziggler attacks him upon exiting the ring and bounces him off the ring apron. Roode reverses a whip into the barricade before getting him into the ring. Ziggler immediately superkicks him as he gets back in the ring and picks up the first fall!

1-0 Dolph Ziggler

*Commercial Break*

During the commercial break, Roode picked up the second fall after a catapult into the ring post and a roll up. That was a bad booking decision.

1-1 Bobby Roode

They’re trading punches, and Roode avoids the famouser before hitting a big one-armed slam for a near fall. Roode sets up for a Glorious DDT, but Ziggler blocks it and picks up a two count. Roode rolls him up for a two count. Ziggler quickly pops up and connects with a big DDT for a near fall. Ziggler pulls himself up and waits for Roode to get up. Roode holds the ropes to counter the Zig-Zag. Roode hits a Double R Spinebuster and goes for a Glorious DDT. Ziggler gets out of it and hits a Zig-Zag, but Roode kicks out! A great sequence.

Both men take a few moments before getting to their feet. The crowd is really into this match. Ziggler sets up in the corner a la Shawn Michaels going for Sweet Chin Music. Ziggler tunes up the band and goes for a superkick, but Roode sidesteps it. Roode rolls him up, but Ziggler rolls through and grabs the tights. Roode kicks out and connects with a Glorious DDT for the win!

Winner: Bobby Roode

Bobby Roode joins Shane McMahon and Randy Orton on Team Smackdown Live at Survivor Series. Roode says there are three members of Team Smackdown Live with him, Randy Orton, and Shane McMahon. Roode misspeaks and says he hopes the next two have “compassion” before correcting and saying passion and competitiveness. At Survivor Series, it’s Smackdown Live up and RAW down.

Shinsuke Nakamura faces Kevin Owens in another Survivor Series Qualifying Match later tonight. We’ll also see AJ Styles take on Samir Singh.

*Commercial Break*

The New Day is walking around backstage in their Halloween costumes. Xavier Woods is dressed as “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, but he looks like Katt Williams. Big E is Akeem the Dream. Kofi Kingston is Brother Love, complete with his face being painted red. Rusev and Aiden English come up to them. Rusev asks what’s wrong with them. RAW could be at their doorsteps. Woods says they’re ready to fight no matter what. Rusev says Halloween is a dumb holiday for dumb children. Only one day matters – Aiden English sings, “Rusev Day.” Rusev pours out the candy and stomps on it. Big E is furious and challenges him to a match. Rusev accepts.

Elsewhere backstage, Becky Lynch is talking to the Women’s Division of Smackdown. James Ellsworth is dressed like a dog. Carmella makes him sit. Lynch unites the team before Natalya, the Smackdown Live Women’s Champion, comes up. She tells them to settle their tea kettles. She may not be part of the Women’s Team Smackdown Live, but she’ll be facing Alexa Bliss. On every team is a weak link. Could it be Naomi or Charlotte Flair. If Team Smackdown loses to Team RAW, they can blame Flair.

Baron Corbin makes his way to the ring. He’ll be in action, next.

Renee Young is backstage with The Usos. She asks how they’re preparing to take on The Shield at Survivor Series. Jimmy Uso says they already proved they have this division on lock. Now they’ll prove they’re the A-Team on the so-called B-Show. Jey is going to welcome The Shield to The Uso Penitentiary. Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable walk up to them. Benjamin says at Survivor Series, it’s the Smackdown Tag Champions versus the RAW Tag Champions. Next week, they’ll be facing The Usos for the titles. Gable does a rap, and it’s bad.
