Scheduled for the 11/19 episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Hartford, Connecticut is a singles match between Shotzi and Sasha Banks. Both talents are going to be a part of SmackDown’s women’s Survivor Series team. Also, Sheamus is making his first appearance next week since being drafted to the brand. Sheamus underwent surgery for a broken nose in September.

Sami Zayn had a backstage segment with Adam Pearce which was to set up Zayn versus Jeff Hardy. NXT’s Von Wagner stood side-by-side with Pearce for the segment.

While the crowd chanted ‘yes’ in unison, Pat McAfee jokingly asked what the crowd was chanting and said they might be saying ‘yeah’.

Prior to being removed from the SmackDown women’s Survivor Series team, Aliyah scored her first win as a part of WWE’s main roster. She pinned Natalya in a six-woman tag. Before the show went to commercial break, Aliyah vomited in the ring.

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair appeared on the show to address her opponent at Survivor Series, Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Flair was confronted by Toni Storm who asked for a title match and Flair declined.

There was a Hit Row (Top Dolla, Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott & Ashante Thee Adonis) segment that aired during the program and that was followed by Jinder Mahal and Shanky mocking the group by calling them “Cringe Row”.
