Nikki Cross has an opportunity to round out Team SmackDown for Survivor Series.
WWE announced that Cross will face SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley on the November 15 episode of SmackDown and if Cross wins, she'll join Team SmackDown. The women's team already consists of Lacey Evans, Carmella, Dana Brooke and team captain Sasha Banks. They will take on Team Raw and Team NXT at Survivor Series taking place on November 24.
Nikki Cross can become the final member of Team SmackDown for the Five-Woman Survivor Series Elimination Match — but she’ll have to overcome SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley to do so.
Lacey Evans joins team captain Sasha Banks, Carmella and Dana Brooke, leaving one spot remaining on Team Blue — one coveted by WWE’s Twisted Sister. Banks doesn’t seem to want any part of teaming with her newfound rival, however, especially after both she and Bayley notched victories over Cross in recent weeks.
However, both of those wins came with each other’s assistance. Will the third time be the charm this time for Cross? Or will this bolder, edgier version of Bayley — with Banks likely not far behind — simply be too much once again for Cross to overcome? Find out this Friday night on FOX at 8/7 C!
Fightful will have live coverage of SmackDown, airing on FOX starting at 8 p.m. ET and will have a post-show podcast to follow.
