WWE has announced two matches for SmackDown episode for tonight, 15 November 2019 for Survivor Series 2019 qualifications.
In one of the matches, Nikki Cross will face SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley in order to gain the last spot in the SmackDown Women’s team for Survivor Series 2019. Sasha Banks as the captain, Dana Brooke, Carmella, and Lacey Evans are already announced for the team already. They will take on RAW and NXT women’s teams in the traditional 5-on-5 elimination tag team match at Survivor Series 2019.
Nikki Cross has been in a feud with Bayley over the last month. She earlier became the no. #1 contender for her title but lost the title match two weeks back. Cross also faced Sasha Banks last week in a losing cause. However, if she manages to win against Bayley tonight, she not only gets an entry in the Survivor Series, but might also get another title shot against Bayley in the future.
The second match announced for tonight’s SmackDown is Mustafa Ali & Shorty G trying to save their place in Survivor Series Team against Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler. The current SmackDown Survivor Series team is- Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Shorty G and Mustafa Ali.
But King Corbin took a shot at Ali and Shorty G to included in the team and made a case for Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode to be added to the team instead. This led to a war of words over Twitter and Corbin proposing the match between the pairs.
