Two UK natives, Drew McIntyre and Sheamus will battle The Usos in a WarGames Advantage Match, while two semi-final bouts in Smackdown World Cup will also go down to determine two of the finalists.
Smackdown Women’s Champion will feature in a tag team action while the final member for Team Bianca for WarGames will be revealed on the November 25 episode of Friday Night Smackdown, airing from the Amica Mutual Pavilion (fka Dunkin’ Donuts Center) in Providence, Rhode Island.
Here’s what is in store for the latest episode of WWE Smackdown:
WarGames Advantage Match: Drew McIntyre and Sheamus vs. The Usos
During last week’s Smackdown, Kevin Owens not only revealed himself as the fifth member of Team Brawling Brutes at Survivor Series but he also put down Roman Reigns with a stunner during the closing moments of the show.
It was later confirmed that Survivor Series will be headlined by a WarGames match pitting The Bloodline against The Brawling Brutes, Owens, and McIntyre.
Now that the babyface team is all set up, we can expect the prior differences between Drew McIntyre and Sheamus to be gone as they come together to fight The Usos for the WarGames Advantage rights.
the fresh tag team will go up against the veteran Usos in this match. Since the winning side will always be able to have the numbers’ advantage on their side inside the WarGames structure, this win on Smackdown will be crucial.
Fifth member of Team Bianca to be revealed
Speaking of gaining an advantage at WarGames, Rhea Ripley defeated Asuka in a WarGames Advantage Match on this week’s episode of Raw to keep Team DAMAGE CTRL in a favorable spot. But things could change upside down on Smackdown.
The opposition team leader, Bianca Belair is hell-bent on even-ing the odds and she will be present on Smackdown to reveal the fifth and final member of Team Belair. All eyes will be on the Raw Women’s Champion in this segment that’s speculated to produce a huge return.
Reports from PWInsider and Fightful Select have suggested the possibility of a returning Becky Lynch being unveiled as the mystery member. If not, then former champions like Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Sasha Banks, and even NXT’s former roster member Tegan Nox are the other speculated names.
Smackdown World Cup Semifinal – Braun Strowman vs. Ricochet
Two weeks ago, Braun Strowman bulldozed his way into the Smackdown World Cup semifinal by beating Jinder Mahal in a match. The following week, Ricochet did the same by defeating Mustafa Ali in a match between two high-flyers.
Now, the two previous winners, Strowman and Ricochet will battle it out to enter the World Cup Finale. The Monster of All Monsters is a heavy favorite to win the bout unless his speedy opponent pulls off a shocker.
