A Helping Hand.
The 950th edition of WWE SmackDown LIVE was a special Halloween episode and it came to you, live, from the Norfolk Scope in Norfolk, VA. With Survivor Series just a few weeks away, Team RAW and Team SmackDown LIVE have both begun to take shape with Team RAW boasting WWE Hall of Famer and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle as well as Braun Strowman and three to-be-named teammates while Team SmackDown LIVE has secured “The Viper” Randy Orton, who defeated Sami Zayn last week to earn the spot on the team. However, Team SmackDown LIVE would begin to fill up this week with two Survivor Series Qualifying Matches as, after failing to help Sami Zayn secure a spot on the team last week, Kevin Owens would try for a spot on Team SmackDown LIVE when Owens goes one-on-one with Shinsuke Nakamura! Plus, with Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler each holding a victory over the other, the ‘rubber match’ would take place on SmackDown LIVE as “The Glorious One” and the self-proclaimed “greatest in-ring performer in WWE history” would go one-on-one in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match where the first Superstar to score two falls by pinfall, submission, disqualification, or count-out will win the match and will also earn their way onto Team SmackDown LIVE at Survivor Series! AJ Styles would also be in action on SmackDown LIVE as, with “The Phenomenal One” hot on the heels of WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, AJ would go one-on-one with one-half of The Singh Brothers, Samir Singh, who will attempt to make Jinder proud and do what his brother Sunil could not do last week.
