Superstars from NXT once again caused chaos on SmackDown with several women and the Undisputed Era invading.
Trouble began to flare during Nikki Cross’ match against SmackDown women’s champion Bayley, in which she was bidding for a place on the blue team for the inter-brand match at Survivor Series.
Moments after the match began, however, NXT champion Shayna Baszler suddenly emerged to confront Bayley, who tried to escape only to have her exit blocked by NXT’s Rhea Ripley, Mia Yim, Tegan Knox and Dakota Kai.
Sasha Banks then launched a counter-attack on Baszler, with Fire & Desire, Carmella, Dana Brooke and Tamina following close behind, igniting an all-out brawl between the two brands and leading to an impromptu eight-woman tag match.
Cross, the wrestler who began the evening being put to the test, scored the pin on Kai with the neckbreaker but the chaos continued with another all-out brawl after the bell.
Undisputed Era make their mark
After Kofi Kingston & Big E of The New Day overcame The Revival to capture the positive faction’s seventh tag-team titles, the two tandems engaged in a rematch for the SmackDown belts.Before a clear winner could be decided, NXT’s deadly Undisputed Era faction suddenly joined the party and attacked both tag teams to bring the action to a sudden end.
Although Heavy Machinery, Lucha House Party, Apollo Crews and Heath Slater quickly came out to chase off Adam Cole and company, the issues between the brands are intensifying en route to Survivor Series.
