SmackDown Live was a show full of breaking news and developing situations. One thing that nobody saw coming was the fact that Becky Lynch would be pulled from the champion vs champion match against Ronda Rousey. But it turns out that wasn’t the only change for Survivor Series.
AJ Styles started out the show and then Paul Heyman came out and namedropped Daniel Bryan which caused AJ to speak about him too. Bryan came down and told Styles not to speak his name again so AJ did. Then the two brawled and a WWE Championship match was set up later on in the night between the two.
The Miz was later informed by Paige that Daniel Bryan is now off of the SmackDown Men’s Survivor Series team and The Miz is now a captain by himself. The Miz said Jeff Hardy will fill Daniel Bryan’s spot and then eh wanted to throw Rey Mysterio out of the team as well because he was Bryan’s pick and he wanted to erase all signs of Bryan’s decisions from the team.
Paige said if The Miz wanted Mysterio out of the match then he would have to beat him in a match, which he failed to do. After the match was over, Randy Orton showed up and although Mysterio got out of the ring in time, The Miz ate an RKO outa nowhere.
