SURVIVOR SERIES MATCH: TEAM RAW (CHARLOTTE FLAIR, ASUKA, KAIRI SANE, SARAH LOGAN & NATALYA) vs. TEAM NXT (RHEA RIPLEY, BIANCA BELAIR, CANDICE LERAE, IO SHIRAI & TONI STORM) vs. TEAM SMACKDOWN (SASHA BANKS, CARMELLA, DANA BROOKE, LACEY EVANS & NIKKI CROSS)
Io Shirai starts things off for Team NXT. The crowd wants Kairi Sane to face her… and they’re going to get it! Carmella is in for Smackdown, and the match is underway. The two joshi warriors stare each other down as Carmella yells at them, feeling left out, so they send her flying to the outside. Io and Kairi trade kicks to the body and wrestle to the mat, with Io landing a nasty kick to the side of the head. Dana Brooke tags in and comes out of nowhere with a diving senton to take them both out.
Evans tags in and starts talking trash to Candice LeRae, who just fires off with dozens of rights and lefts backing her into the corner. Asuka flies across the ring and splashes them both. In comes Rhea Ripley who gets a huge reaction, as she dropkicks Evans out to the floor. Natalya catches her with a clotheseline but Io takes her out with a dropkick. Io turns around and gets absolutely DESTROYED by a spear from Charlotte. All hell has broken loose! Bodies are flying everywhere!
It comes down to Banks alone in the ring, doing her pose as everyone else has fought out to the floor. Flair tags in the two face off, but the match is stopped as something is happening on the floor. Io and Candice are both down and look to be legitimately injured as a heard of officials and doctors are checking on them. The rest of the women look on from the apron. We may be here for a minute…
Eventually order is restored and the two women are helped to the back by doctors. Nikki Cross gets the action going again as she goes nuts on the three remaining members of NXT out on the floor. She starts hammering Toni Storm into the barricade multiple times, but Belair catches her from behind with her hair. Belair ends up catching her with a small package and uses the ropes to get the elimination.
Nikki Cross has been eliminated.
Sarah Logan comes in for Team Raw and starts delviering forearm strikes to Sasha Banks. Belair comes off the top rope with a picture perfect 450 splash to catch her off guard, however. 1…2…3.
Sarah Logan has been eliminated.
Belair gets a bit too cocky and comes face-to-face with Charlotte Flair. The Queen decks her with some very real-looking forearm shots, and hits a big boot. Carmella rolls her up from out of nowhere, but only gets two. Belair is slow getting up, and is taken right back down with a big boot. Flair heads to the top rope but Carmella catches her and sends her flying with an Avalanche Hurricanrana, landing right on top of Bianca! Mella tries for a cover on both ladies, but can’t find what she’s looking for. She tries to scoop up Belair, but is caught with Natural Selection out-a-nowhere!
Carmella has been eliminated.
Toni Storm is in but she’s taken to the mat by Kairi Sane with a flurry of rights and lefts. She heads up top and connects with a huge Insane Elbow, makes the cover, but Sasha Banks catches her with a running Meteora! Dana Brooke is in but Asuka is PISSED that her partner is gone and just beats the hell out of her. Asuka Lock is in, and it’s over that quick.
Kairi Sane & Dana Brooke have been eliminated.
Charlotte wants in the match, but Asuka refuses to tag in as she’s not done yet. Flair tags herself in and the two end up shoving each other, before Asuka is taken out a big boot. She gets attacked from behind by Lacey Evans… and Asuka sprays the Queen with the poison mist! Women’s Right connects from Evans to Charlotte! Asuka walks out on her team and waves goodbye as Flair is pinned. Natalya surprises Evans with a roll-up and eliminates her as well.
Charlotte Flair & Lacey Evans have been eliminated.
Toni Storm attempts to get things going for her team, but Natalya and Sasha Banks work together and put her in a Sharpshoot and the Bank Statement at the same time, and she’s got no choice but to tap out. Bianca Belair gets in the ring and the two immediately double-team her as well. It looks like Raw and Smackdown just want to make sure NXT doesn’t win at this point.
Toni Storm & Bianca Belair have been eliminated.
Sasha Banks turns on Natalya and hits her from behind, then drops her with the Bank Statement. She’s gone.
Natalya has been eliminated.
It’s down to Rhea Ripley and Sasha Banks, as the crowd has come to life. The Boss starts to chip her opponent down with stiff kicks and elbow strikes. She hits the ropes and somehow does a tilt-a-whirl into a front-mounted sleeper hold. Crazy. Rhea slams her down hard to break the hold, but Banks quickly comes back with a running Meteora in the corner for two.
Banks slowly climbs to the top rope, and dives right into a big boot from the NXT Superstar. Ripley lifts her up for her impressive standing Trailer Hitch submission, but Sasha counters into the Bank Statement! They’re in the center of the ring with nowhere to go and it looks like it might be over… but Io Shirai and Candice LeRae are back to make the save! Banks has her hands full as the referee is completely distracted. Io hits a springboard dropkick to turn her inside out, and Ripley connects with the Riptide! 1…2…3!
