Smackdown vs RAW Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match Set for WWE Survivor Series (November, 8th 2016)
As of this Past Monday, with Team Smackdown having quickly filled their positions, the Women of RAW looked to do the same as Alicia Fox and Sasha Banks were made the two final members of Team RAW for the upcoming Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Match that will pit Brands against each other in a battle to prove one anothers dominance. Heading Team RAW will be the recently crowned Women’s Champion of RAW, Charlotte, while former Divas Champion Nikki Bella takes the helm as Captain of Smackdown per defeating Natalya to earn that opportunity.
On the Post Hell in a Cell RAW, Charlotte had already begun to plant additions to RAWs Team after being named the Official Captain of the Brands Team, thus she went out of her way to add Bayley, who she views at this time as a “weak link” and more so after enjoying her defeat at the hands of her other Survivor Series Counterpart, Nia Jax. While Smackdown filled their team very quickly by Nikki Bella earning her spot over Natalya to become captain, verbally adding Alexa Bliss, Naomi and Bella’s rival Carmella to the fray as well as Smackdowns Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, the Smackdown Women now has as much tension with one another as the RAW team do, with Carmella and Nikki Bella continuously grappling with one another over the months and Alexa Bliss going out of her own way to create misery for a recently returned title holder Becky Lynch. Defeated Veteran Natalya looked to make up for losing out on a spot to compete in the home state of Canada by persuading Shane McMahon to let her ease the animosity between the meant to be sidekicks as a coach, though has yet to succeed in this quest. With Bayley looking to comeback from being physically assaulted by Nia Jax upon being declared a weak link by pinning the Champion and Accuser Charlotte, Nia herself seemingly relighting her own issue with in ring veteran Alicia Fox and Sasha Banks looking to rebound from the failure of standing tall in her historic Hell in a Cell match, it remains to be seen how the women on either side can co exist, but as Fox stated this past Monday on RAW, the Name of the Game is Survival, and Opposite Authority Clamor for only one brand to be the greatest when the two sides recreated by the brand split battle in the Air Canada Centre.
