Roman Reigns made it clear at the top of the show that SmackDown was opening the doors and allowing anyone who wanted to invade to walk right in. King Corbin obviously wasn’t happy about this, but it kicked off an interesting segment that gave the women of WWE the spotlight.

Team SmackDown called Team Raw out through captain Charlotte Flair, and obviously The Queen responded. This lead to a staredown between the two main roster teams before Rhea Ripley, Tegan Nox, Toni Storm, Candice LeRae and Mia Yim made their way to the ring and revealed that they were Team NXT.

Ripley revealed that she was the captain of the Women’s match for Survivor Series and wanted in on the match between Raw and SmackDown captains Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair.

The three women then took part in a triple threat match after Ripley pitched the idea while with all other women who are part of the show on Sunday night watching on from ringside. It was a fantastic match between the three women who will lead their teams this weekend but it was Team NXT who came out on top.

Rhea Ripley remained undefeated since she was able to take advantage of the fact that Flair locked in the Figure 8 on Sasha Banks and ran in to put Flair in a Crucifix style pin. NXT then escaped the ring and Raw and SmackDown then brawled for control of the ring.

In the end, it appeared that SmackDown took the ring since it was their show, but it was NXT who picked up the decisive victory and now walk into Survivor Series this weekend with all of the confidence and could easily be considered the underdogs. With War Games, just hours before Survivor Series, will the result be the same on Sunday night?
