The post Survivor Series edition of SmackDown came live last night on the occasion of Thanksgiving Day.
The Legacy Arena at BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama was the host of the show that kicked off with Roman Reigns who cut a promo on the bygone PPV.
He called out his current rival King Corbin who bring out Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler with him to set up the first match of the night.
Roman Reigns competed in the opening match of SmackDown against Robert Roode which saw Dolph Ziggler trying to interfere a number of times. Corbin also tried to distract but digested a Superman Punch. Reigns soon followed up with the spear on Roode to pick up the win.
After the match, the heels tried to attack Roman Reigns using the number-games. But Reigns caught Ziggler with a Samoan Drop. Roode ate a Superman Punch as Reigns lifted the announce table up and flipped it over on Roode to bury him underneath it.
Mustafa Ali vs. Drew Gulak was the next matchup on SmackDown where Ali downed Gulak with a Superkick. Ali ended up hitting a big tornado DDT and the 054 from the top for the pin to win.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley and Sasha Banks entered the ring to cut a heel promo on the locker room members.
Lacey Evans interrupted them as fans cheered for the lady. Banks got into her face only to get dropped by the Women’s Right from Lacey. Bayley checked on her buddy as Evans decided to leave the ring.
Nikki Cross vs. Sonya Deville was the next matchup on SmackDown. Cross hit a Running Bulldog and went to the top rope.
Mandy distracted her which allowed Sonya to bring her down. But Cross rolled her up to get the pinfall win.
After the match, Sonya and Mandy attacked Cross until Alexa Bliss made her return on SmackDown to make the save. Bliss and Cross hit a double suplex on their opponents to end the segment.
Two more big returns happened on SmackDown as Sheamus and Elias showed up during backstage segments.
An Open Challenge was next for SmackDown Tag Team Titles where Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura challenged The New Day. Sami Zayn was constantly trying to interfere in the match as the referee ejected him from ringside.
Cesaro was distracted by this as Kofi nailed him with a Trouble In Paradise to get the pinfall win and retain the title.
Daniel Bryan appeared on SmackDown to respond to the Universal Championship challenge laid down by Bray Wyatt.
Bryan responded with big YES chants after which The Fiend appeared through a hole under the ring. He applied the Mandible Claw to choke out Bryan and drag him under the ring.
The Fiend came out of it on a couple of occasions with a chunk of Bryan’s hair in his hand.
SmackDown went off the air with The Fiend looking up from the hole under the ring and laughing.
