Apart from this one news, we now officially know that Nikki Bella will be the leader of the Smackdown women’s division at the Survivor Series PPV. The blue brand will square off against the red brand’s women’s division on that night.

Interestingly, Nikki picked up the win via his boyfriend, John Cena’s STF move. After the match, WWE.com officially announced Nikki as the leader for Survivor Series.
