The announcers showed us some of the recent attacks between NXT and main roster Superstars in the women’s division. Elsewhere, Kayla Braxton was backstage with Sasha Banks and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley. Because of her recent attacks, Bayley said RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler no longer see her as just an afterthought. She said it’d been all personal from her lately, which is why she’s on a roll.
Bayley fights for her and herself only now and doesn’t care about anyone else. She went on with the heel talk and said she looks forward to crushing Nikki Cross’ dreams tonight. In addition, Banks had words for Cross. The Boss said she’s letting Bayley go out there alone tonight, and letting her take care of Cross by herself. Bayley went on and said maybe she will join Team SmackDown to defeat Team NXT and Team RAW at Survivor Series. Nikki Cross came out. The music hit, and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley came out for this non-title match.
The bell rang, and Bayley immediately charged. Bayley took control, and they went to the floor. She sent Cross into the steel ring steps. NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler came to ringside, and Bayley jumped in the ring. Baszler then jumped in the ring, but Bayley retreated to the crowd. Suddenly, Tegan Nox, Rhea Ripley, Dakota Kai, and Mia Yim appeared behind Bayley in the crowd. She got dropped and then Ripley slammed her over the barrier back to the ringside floor. Baszler looked on from the ring, but Banks ran in out of nowhere and dropped her.
The NXT Superstars stared Banks down from the ringside floor. They went to hit the ring on Banks, but SmackDown Superstars – Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, Dana Brooke came out. Baszler and Bayley brawled out into the crowd while the others were brawling in the ring. The NXT Superstars retreated to the crowd while the blue brand stars stood tall in the ring. The Boss took the mic and said if they want the spotlight, she will give it to them. She proposed an eight-woman tag team match.
