What happened on last week’s episode of WWE SmackDown?

Sami Zayn interrupted The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre at the start of last Friday’s WWE SmackDown. The Honorary Uce guaranteed The Bloodline a win at Survivor Series WarGames. The Brawling Brutes warned Sami that he wasn’t going to like who they found as their fifth teammate for the game.

Ricochet defeated Mustafa Ali in a big match to qualify for the SmackDown World Cup. Emma and Madcap Moss began a romantic affair as she consoled him after Karrion Kross defeated him with ease. Meanwhile, Kross has warned The Usos that he’ll be coming after Roman Reigns in the near future.

LA Knight slapped Bray Wyatt in the face twice and was later found buried under a pile of equipment backstage.

Shotzi fought Shayna Baszler in a singles match with SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at ringside. Raquel Rodriguez came down the entrance ramp to even the odds. Shotzi rode Baszler for the win and will face Rousey for the title at Survivor Series.

Braun Strowman teamed up with New Day to defeat Imperium. Intercontinental champion Gunther apparently bullied Strowman during the match. The monster of all monsters is currently part of the SmackDown World Cup and the winner of the tournament gets a title shot against Gunther.

Butch defeated Sami Zayn in the main event to qualify for the SmackDown World Cup tournament. After the match, The Bloodline attacked but Kevin Owens made the save. Owens will join Drew McIntyre and The Brawling Brutes in the WarGames match against The Bloodline on November 26.

The Survivor Series map is starting to take shape. It will be interesting to see which matches will be added to the premium live event this week.
