The five women did battle on Smackdown to determine the captain of the team. Becky Lynch would emerge victorious, submitting her future partner in Carmella with Disarmher. Alicia Fox was already named Raw's captain, and thus far she'll be joined on the squad by Bayley and Sasha Banks.

Also on the show, WWE Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon booked Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton to determine the first member of team Smackdown on the men's side, which Orton ended up winning. Thus far, there's no word on who will be joining Raw's side of the 5-on-5 elimination match for the PPV. 

On next week's episode of Smackdown Live, Kevin Owens takes on Shinsuke Nakamura in a qualifying match. Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler will also square off in a Team Smackdown Survivor Series qualifying match.
