On tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown, two changes have been made to the Survivor Series team of the blue brand. 

The first one to lose their spot was Aliyah. The latter finally made her main roster in-ring debut on tonight’s episode as she teamed up with Sasha Banks and Naomi to compete against the team of Natalya, Shotzi Blackheart, and Shayna Baszler. 

Aliyah pinned Natalya to get the win for her team. However, after her impressive debut, Sonya Deville approached her backstage and told her that she is longer a part of the Women’s Survivor Series of SmackDown.

On the other hand, Sami Zayn approached Adam Pearce and told him to remove Jeff Hardy from the men’s team. Pearce didn’t like his idea and then he booked a match between him and Jeff Hardy with a stipulation that the loser will lose his spot on the team SmackDown. 

Sami Zayn tried to cheat during the match but was caught by the referee. When he was arguing with the official, Jeff Hardy stood up and hit Twist of Fate, and then he hit Swanton Bomb to get the pinfall. As a result, Sami Zayn also lost his spot on the SmackDown Survivor Series team. 

WWE hasn’t announced who will replace Aliyah and Sami Zayn in SmackDown’s Survivor Series but they might reveal it in the next week’s episode.
