Hey there Fight Fans, it's time for Smackdown on FOX! We hope you enjoy the show and be don't forget to stick around afterwards for the post-show podcast!
-We open the show with a video recapping the last two weeks of Smackdown before Baron Corbin comes out to a ring on a throne and is greeted by Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler who helped him defeat Roman Reigns last week in England. Corbin says everyone should pledge loyalty to him and his kingdom and that he has the responsibility to tell the harsh truth and that he was right about Roman Reigns being a shell of his former self before he says that he is the new captain of Team Smackdown for Survivor Series. Dolph agrees with Corbin that Roman is a step behind and that the only reason Ali and Gable got on the team is because they're friends with Roman and that he and Robert are going to beat up Ali and Gable and take their spot on Team Smackdown. Corbin invites Roman to the ring before his music hits and a person in a bulldog costume comes out to the ring and bows to Corbin as we go to commercial.
Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode vs Mustafa Ali & Chad Gable
Roode and Gable kick things off for their respective teams by exchanging wrist locks before Chad takes Roode down and drops him with a shoulder block before hitting several arm drags into a straight armbar. Roode hits a scoop slam before Dolph hits a jumping elbow drop and Ali wrenches the arm of Dolph who backs into the ropes for a clean break. Ali hits a huricanrrana and an enzuigiri into a rolling sit-out facebuster for a two count before Roode and Ziggler double up on Ali and Ali gets distracted at ringside by Corbin before Roode knocks him from the apron and into the announce table. Roman Reigns then comes out to the ring and evens the odds as we go to commercial.
Ali sends Dolph out of the ring and Roode into the ring post before he crawls to the corner and Dolph stops him with a famouser before knocking Gable from the apron for a near fall before Chad gets the tag. Chad then hits a German suplex before Ali hits a 450 for the pin and the win.
Winner: Mustafa Ali and Chad Gable defeat Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler via pinfall to be added to the Smackdown Survivor Series team.
