Charlotte Flair will get another opportunity at the
SmackDown Women’s Championship tonight on SmackDown LIVE
when she challenges Natalya in her hometown of Charlotte,
In their last encounter for the title at WWE Hell in a Cell,
The Queen had the champion on the ropes and looked to be on
the verge of taking her first SmackDown Women’s
Championship. However, a desperate Natalya grabbed a steel
chair and used it to batter Charlotte’s knee in a jaw-
In the meantime, the champion has been focused on her
impending Champion vs. Champion battle with Raw Women’s
Champion Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series, while The Queen
qualified for Team SmackDown in the Women’s 5-on-5
Traditional Survivor Series Match. However, this match has
the potential to change Survivor Series, as a Charlotte
victory over Natalya would result in The Queen facing Bliss
in Houston. The Raw Women's Champion stated last night that
she'll be keeping a close eye on the match, and may even
make her way up to Charlotte to see her Survivor Series
opponent in person.

Sin Cara exacted a measure of retribution on Baron Corbin
when he pummeled The Lone Wolf two weeks ago on SmackDown
LIVE. Tonight, the masked man will get the chance to take
Corbin’s United States Championship.
The rivalry between these two Superstars has been simmering
in recent weeks. First, Sin Cara flustered The Lone Wolf
with a series of scintillating dives that led to a count-out
victory. One week later in a rematch, Corbin unleashed his
rage on the masked man, got himself disqualified and planted
his nemesis into the arena floor with End of Days. In
another rematch on the Oct. 31 edition of SmackDown LIVE,
the United States Champion sought to get under the skin of
Sin Cara, trying to remove his rival’s sacred mask. For his
troubles, Corbin caught a beating from Sin Cara that left
him scurrying into the WWE Universe.
Now, they’ll collide with Corbin’s coveted United States
Title on the line, as well as a spot in a Champion vs.
Champion Match against Intercontinental Champion The Miz at
Survivor Series. Who will walk out of SmackDown LIVE as
champion? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
The New Day vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
A huge tag team battle has been set for tonight's SmackDown
LIVE, as The New Day will take on Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn.
The fast-escalating rivalry between the two factions started
in the United Kingdom when Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier
Woods were basking in their successful raid of Monday Night
Raw with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon, only for
Owens & Zayn to hit the scene and ruin the fun. To settle
the score, McMahon made a singles match between Kingston and
Zayn, which The Dreadlocked Dynamo won. After the bell, KO
pounced on Kingston and pummeled him until Woods and Big E
ran him off.
What will happen when these two teams collide? Find out
tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Two weeks ago, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan
ventured into enemy territory on his own. Bryan went to Raw
attempting extend the olive branch to Team Red and General
Manager Kurt Angle, making it clear that he did not agree
with SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon’s decision to
place Raw under siege.
Angle, who did not react well to Bryan’s offered apology,
provided The “Yes!” Man a measure of protection, keeping
Team Blue’s GM in his office rather than have him walk
through an arena filled with Raw Superstars eager for
retribution. But Angle’s office turned out to be anything
but a safe haven for Bryan, as Kane viciously attacked him.
Bryan returns to SmackDown LIVE this Tuesday. What will he
have to say as the tension between Raw and SmackDown
escalates just days from what is sure to be an unforgettable
