Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of WWE SmackDown on november 6th.
Tonight’s episode of SmackDown will continue the build towards Survivor Series, and as such Seth Rollins faces Otis in a qualifying match, while Rey Mysterio tackles King Corbin for a spot in Team SmackDown. So far the team consists of Jey Uso and Kevin Owens, and we don’t yet know the captain.
The only other match scheduled for tonight so far is a huge SmackDown Women’s Championship rematch between Bayley and Sasha Banks. This match could serve as the blow-off to the feud, with the winner moving on to face Asuka at Survivor Series.
And that’s all we know about tonight’s SmackDown. We can assume there will be drama with Aaliyah Mysterio and Murphy, as well as the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. We’ll have live coverage here from 8PM EST. Enjoy the show!

He’s been bullied his entire life for his appearance and how he talks, and those bullies used to push him around, steal his lunch, etc. But he learned to take care of himself, gained 50 lbs of muscle, and the bullying stopped.
