Tonight on Monday Night Raw, Captain of Raw Women’s Survivor Series Team Alicia Fox recruited two new female Superstars to join Raw’s Survivor Series Women’s Team.

She first selected Asuka after the former NXT Women’s Champion made quick work again enhancement talent Stacy Coates.

Later in the evening, Fox would team up with Nia Jax, who was confirmed to represent Team Raw last week, to take on the team Bayley and Sasha Banks. In a pre-match interview, Banks and Bayley said they would prove to Fox why they deserved to represent Raw’s Women team at Survivor Series.

During the tag team match, Banks was able to pick up the win for her team by forcing Fox to tap out to the Bank Statement. Post match, Fox grabbed a mic to admit she needed and wants Banks on Team Raw but made no mention of Bayley, thus leaving just one spot open.

Becky Lynch will lead the SmackDown Survivor Series Women’s team consisting of Carmella Charlotte Flair, Naomi and Tamina.

What do you think of Asuka and Sasha joining Team Raw? Who do you like will be the fifth member of Raw Women’s Team? Which team are you rooting for? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Rosanna

    Imma assume it’s Mickie or a new debut or Paige.

    • John Finnie

      I cant see them debut paige at one of the big 4… its a risk a very big risk that could go either way
      Id say the SD after SS i cant see her in raw or popular with the women backstage… no matter how sweet their twitter exchanges are

    • Jo9834

      Honestly after Paige desecrated the womens title , I doubt she’ll be back, Alundra dropped it in a bin and was blacklisted for years, Paige had someone jizz over it , Vince Mcmahon doesn’t play that stuff at all.

  • #RiotWithRuby

    So there’s go Smackdown’s chances. ?

    • perceval

      And Alexa’s, which I don’t mind.

  • OJ Von Erich

    Is there any particular reason that this gets a news story of it’s own?

    Nia didn’t get one last week & surely this will just get covered In the redux anyway?

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      It’s Asuka and Sasha Banks. That’s a big difference.

      • OJ Von Erich

        Oh yes, The Empress & The Boss…

        Consider this my resignation from the kingdom.

  • Darryl lee

    So yeah, raw is winning this match. And since asuka is there, I expect wwe to do the right thing and not eliminate her.

    Btw who is going to be the fifth lady to be added?

    • AlexV

      Bayley?

      • Seraphina Rosenhart

        She wasn’t added tonight, so I don’t think she’ll be added next week.

        • AlexV

          Maybe she’ll prove herself next week? Unless it’s Mickie James? She’s the only other one besides Dana.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            It should be Mickie James vs Dana Brooke vs Bayley next week for the last spot. That’ll be iconic and fresh!

        • perceval

          Alicia may have had one of her Undefined Champion of Divas moments and goofed up.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Asuka = bye Smackdown

  • John Finnie

    I look forward to a tease of Askua vs Charlotte & Tamina & Naomi she has faced the others at times & her & Tamina are very good friend, = good chemistry

    So no Mickie Jame or bayley are missing out!!! That would be a great time for a heel turn after SS on Sasha or Mickie

  • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

    This is what is wrong with WWE these days. Don’t get me wrong I like Asuka but this so predictable the thing with the attitude era and golden era is that it wasn’t predictable but characters were still kept intact. With today’s WWE they’re all over the place so they change things at last minute to be unpredictable but it’s the wrong choice. So watch Asuka dominate SD then get beaten by Alexa Bliss at WM with a DDT

    • Jo9834

      They could have team Raw win without Asuka being pinned, I believe she’s already lost a battle royal on NXT to Eva (I cannot believe she is the only one so far that was ret-di for Assska) so it wouldn’t interfere with her character too much.

      Whats much worse is the fact that Raw creative thinks that this storyline (Alicia picking her team) is actually getting anyone interested for the match at all. If anything Bayley and Sasha look like idiots, they went from having the match of the year two years ago to having to now work for their spot on a generic ppv team that no one cares about.

      A Survivor series team vs team falls count anywhere elimination brawl would be incredible, the girls could fight all around the arena until Asuka is left standing.

      • perceval

        That would still count as a loss for Asuka, so no.

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    Did anyone see Natalya’s tweet to Alexa? You think she could be setting her up for Carmella to cash in on Alexa for a twist? Probably not, they always play safe anymore

    • nightofme

      I would DIIIIEEEEE omg

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      What’d she tweet to Alexa?

      • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

        Can’t remember word for word without finding but it was like a warning then a … with the money bag emoji ?

  • I mean…
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/590c96f8958df27e883852d6646e275240ce0b029f860a2022806e074ec09bd7.gif

    With Asuka on the team, now we KNOW RAW’s going to win (unless Asuka turns heel and destroys everyone on Team RAW). They could’ve EASILY threw Pamela and Dana on the team to make the outcome less predictable.

    • wysna

      I actually wouldn’t mind this. It seems a bit unbelievable to book with Nia and Sasha on the team but it would be an OK change of strategy.

      I don’t think people should immediately assume that Asuka = win. This is the MR we’re talking about. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if they have someone like Elseworth beat her with a roll up.

      • Dylan Gutierrez

        Don’t give them ideas! She’ll get thrown into the turnbuckle and superkicked by Carmella for the pin!

    • Maddox

      They can count her out or DQ, that’s how they always eliminate undefeated guys, did it will Rusev and Braun

    • E-Force

      Ugh right now I’m actually a big fan of Dana, i would love to see her instead of pamela’s boring ass

    • perceval

      It would make no sense not to have Asuka on the team.

      Besides, it’s not like this isn’t a throwaway match, in and of itself, just like last year. These Survivor Series elimination matches never matter just a week later, except for what is built out of them. Last year’s just served to build Charlotte vs Bayley and set up Nikki vs Natalya. Just how much did last year’s match not matter? Notice, when Nattie called Charlotte the weak link of Team Smackdown, Charlotte didn’t reply that she captained the team that beat Nattie’s.

      But, right now, they need to give Asuka a showcase for her skills and to establish her as dominant in a way squashing local jobbers doesn’t accomplish. This is perfect for that. They need to progress Nattie vs Charlotte. Nattie winning her match and Team SD losing theirs allows her to lord it over the rest of the division, especially Charlotte. Also, we’ll have all the Horsewomen together in one place. Perfect time for a certain group of MMA women to make their move. If that happens, and the Horsewomen are all eliminated by countout, Nattie can blame Becky and Charlotte for Team SD’s loss.

  • txistedbliss

    Maybe if Asuka gets counted out in the match they can still portray her as undefeated

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Welp whatever hope we for Smackdown winning is gone ? #ThankYouAsuka

  • Mr. Giem

    I guess Team Blue has no chance to win now but let’s be honest, RAW has been kicking their asses for quite some weeks so this year RAW’s victory is actually fair.

    Now, if they can only add Mickie to the match instead of Bayley, that would be wonderful.

    • KatyaMenelli

      No, fuck that. RAW has only been good at booking their women for a month now and now it’s the year? SD deserves this win, especially this year.

      • Mr. Giem

        Why exactly? Smackdown has been down hill since the shake up, they kinda picked up during the MITB match but the women have been directionless ever since. RAW has always been a mess but at least they are keeping it fresh and interesting. I’m a big fan of SD Women’s division but their booking has been so boring.

  • Bliss = Goddess

    Team Raw wins and unfortunately Nattie wins

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      Yup, that’s what I’m guessing too. With Asuka, it’s almost guaranteed that Raw will win. And they will have Nattie win in order to balance it out, which will seem weird because Alexa’s already taken out Sasha, Bayley, Becky, Mickie, etc, so seeing her lose to Nattie will feel odd.

      • Bliss = Goddess

        Unless Asuka just leaves for some reason

        • Maddox

          Haven’t you guys been watching Survivor series in the past few years? She can be counted out it DQ’ed

          • perceval

            And it counts as a loss for Asuka, so it won’t happen

          • Maddox

            She was eliminated from a battle royal by Eva Marie. That counts as a loss too but they just waved it aside

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      I wouldn’t mind seeing Bliss tap out to the sharpshooter tbh

      • Bliss = Goddess

        Good for you

        • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

          No, good for all of us!

          • Bliss = Goddess

            Not me but I’ll be fine with Charlotte beating Bliss

      • The Wicked Bitch

        Ew delete this mess

        • perceval

          SD has to win one of the women’s matches. With Asuka on Team Raw, we can guess which one.

      • Women’s Revolution

        That’s so going to happen. It may not seem like it, but Natalya is getting pushed.

  • Omar Zaal

    This is gonna be good

    I’m sure a bit better than Bound for Gloryhole

    • Ev?

      this really wasn’t funny at all

      • Omar Zaal

        Love you too

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    The only way Smackdown can win is if Asuka gets attacked and laid out cold backstage before the match and someone else takes her spot lol

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    It should be Alicia, Nia, Asuka, Sasha and Mickie for Team RAW with Asuka as the sole survivor. For SS eliminations
    Asuka Eliminates: Charlotte, Naomi and Becky
    Nia eliminates: Carmella
    Sasha elminates: Tamina

    Charlotte eliminates: Sasha and Mickie
    Naomi eliminates: Nia Jax
    Carmella eliminates: Alicia Fox

  • conan_kun

    Why can’t they let Asuka take count out loss. Remember Rusev and Braun got counted out in the Survivor Series match in 2014 and 2016 when they never been pinned or submitted on main roster yet and Asuka has already lost a battle royal but never been pinned or submitted yet.

  • conan_kun
    • tstumo

      Lmao Asuka kills me

    • Jo9834

      LOL! The cocky shade of it all, this is the Asuka Raw needs right now, I cant wait for her to bust out in her native tongue with all kinds of profanities.

    • The Wicked Bitch

      Scream

    • Michael Max

      Discrediting Foxy baby who is the longest tenured female talent in WWE. Foxy gonna come for that streak by beating Asuka with the only thing she can’t beat… her own moves xD

  • Maddox

    This is how Asuka should have debuted, destroying people

  • Kvngbalor

    I may be on my own but i don’t think Asuka should be thrown into a multi women match just yet and i won’t assume RAW is winning just cause her i won’t be suprised if she’s pinned cause her MR run so far has been very meh

  • Sass.

    I would love to see Nattie upset Bliss at Survivor Series, have Bliss & the Raw women jump Nattie after the match. The Smackdown ladies make the save and have Carmella cash in on Nattie whilst everyone else is fighting on the outside. Screwing Nattie on the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Screwjob.

    Later in the show, Carmella will announce she doesn’t need the ladies from Smackdown & wont compete in the SS traditional elimination tag-team match.

    After both teams make their entrance, a returning Paige makes her way to the ring to be Smackdown’s fifth competitor.

    • vdcvt

      Could definitely get behind that! Hopefully something exciting will happen for the build up in the meantime…

    • Almarpar

      Yes. Yes to ALL of this..

    • Robann

      THAT would keep the people talking. Not this bullshit direction I have a feeling they are going in..

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      This iconic booking!

      • Angela

        Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
        On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done .. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

    • ssilva872

      Can you replace one of the writers in WWE?

    • ???

      Wow ! How great this will be !!!!

      But sadly WWE aren’t that smart to do such things.

    • ???

      But what if Paige is still on Raw ? I honestly want her on Raw more than Smackdown but if SD will book her right then I have no problem.

    • Vito

      WOW MY WIG JUST FLEW!!! they need to hire you ASAP

    • StraightUpBitch

      THIS! Fuck all the writers because you just came up with the best idea for the women all year

    • Omg can you please send this to WWE ??????

    • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

      Can you go ahead and send this into creative? But then again…they might have such a tough time thinking how to book this ??

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Yassss love this fire “the creative team” and hire you they couldn’t even come close to booking something like this

    • Exotic

      OMGG OMGG OMGG BECOME A WWE WRITER PLEASE TF OMG APPLY IF YOU CAN

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      That would be awesome actually but I’m thinking Alicia is saving the last spot on her team for her bestie’s return.

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    So we´re really getting an Asuka dominated elimination match and Bortalya vs Bliss as SS…
    https://i1.wp.com/www.purplerockpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/survivor-cagayan-confused-sarah-lacina.gif?resize=480%2C272

  • Tnn Crs

    Thank you WWE now we dont even need to watch the match to know which team is going to win ….

  • Stupid, now it’s gonna be soo predictable. They could hit Asuka with 100 chairs and I still won’t think she’d lose. A mess.

    I hope Nattie beats Alexa.

  • lookwarm

    Mickie interferes with Alexa vs. Nattie, making Nattie win.
    Alexa and Mickie brawls, Nattie attacks them because theyre Team RAW.
    Alexa and Mickie teams up and fights back in the spirit of SS.
    Nattie is left weak. Carmella comes in and cashes in, being the new SD Women’s Champ.

    Carmella is attacked by the angry Nattie backstage, making her unable to compete at the traditional SS match.
    Paige comes in as surprise replacement.

    After SS, we can have Nattie vs Carmella in a heel vs heel feud.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    Ya’ll do remember that Rusev was undefeated back in 2014 and he got eliminated by count out, and last year Braun was counted out and Kevin Owens was DQ”d. So chill out having Asuka on the team doesn’t automatically mean that SD will lose. That being said I wish Paige was on Team SD.

    • Hoooshi

      Wasn’t Nia counted out last year too? They could easily do the same with Asuka this year.

      • ?K . A . T ?

        Na she tapped out to Becky, I think Naomi was the one counted out. But yeah they could easily do that with Asuka this year.

  • Almarpar

    So my thinking is that Asuka gets eliminated not by pinfall.. maybe countout/DQ i dont know. And we’re left with the four horsewomen in a tag.. its gets invaded by the mma 4hw and sets up a match at WM..

    (Then at wm when wwe 4hw win and celebrate sasha and Becky turn on C+B to strt mew fueds that we actually want to see. i wish)

    And carmella successfully cashing in on Nattie and being replaced bu Paige n the SS matcj wpuld be great as someone above said!

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      A match involving both Women’s Divisions just to set up a Horsewomen match that only benfits them? No that’s not fair to everyone else

      • Almarpar

        Very True.. a first ever womens money in the bank match being won by a man isnt either. Its WWE. I would rather it didnt happen but that 4hw v 4hw match is holding back so many storylines atm i just want it to be done and over with so they can move on. Id rather have that bayley v Sasha at WM match and id love a heel becky but that match is holding loads of storyline options back

  • #ROSEARMY

    The narrative for all this has been awful, but that could be my lethal hangover talking.

  • BeenAFan98

    I hear Paige returning for the last spot ?

  • When it comes to survivor series and the women. Faces vs Heel or Raw vs SD, Faces & Raw normally
    Win based off history. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a47e3688d4f2ba8e14440e21c57cc567b30eda72957b6645149c7f7682c44d12.gif

  • Robann

    Everyone is upset/agitated at Asuka being added because the Raw’s women division has won for HOW many years in a row now at SS? This shit is predictable and unless they really pull something out of the hat for this one, I won’t bother wasting my time watching it. The entire build up and match line up thus far for the PPV is meh tbh. The only highlight of this whole SDL v Raw so far is SDL invading and ambushing them a few weeks ago. I’m just not interested in the women’s line up at all.

    • perceval

      “Everyone is upset/agitated at Asuka being added because the Raw’s women division has won for HOW many years in a row now at SS?”

      One?

      • Robann

        ?? Didn’t they win in 2015 and 2014? Or am I bugging?

        • perceval

          Raw and SD weren’t separate.

          I suppose you could count Trish vs Melina in 2005.

        • MK126

          2015 was Char vs Paige for the divas title and then 2014 was Team Fox (fox, emma, Naomi and Nattie) vs Team Paige (paige, summer, Cameron and Layla)

  • Women’s Revolution

    Just because Asuka’s in the match doesn’t mean RAW will win automatically. Asuka can get eliminated by count out to protect her momentum. It will not hurt her undefeated streak.

    I sense controversy will happen at Survivor Series for #TeamBlue. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will screw #TeamShane the victory… Something will go down with the women too, I don’t know what exactly.

    I got a feeling Carmella will cash in her MITB contract, but that will eliminate the feud between Natalya and Charlotte. As someone mentioned the anniversary of the Montreal screwjob is this year.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Well, they could always do Carmella vs Charlotte vs Natalya.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Now give us Heel Sasha Banks vs Asuka at WrestleMania!

  • conan_kun

    Sasha acts like she don’t care that Bayley didn’t get picked for Raw women team as she don’t even recommend Bayley should be in too
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DN_63Z5U8AEEEor.jpg

    • MK126

      Just more seeds planted for the inevitable Sasha vs Bayley feud

  • ssilva872

    Diva-Dirt needs to post about Charlotte/McCool teasing a match. Let’s get WWE to make that dream match happen.

    • MK126

      Battle of the Big Boots!

    • ???

      They are samilar !

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      When did this happen? DD needs to get on there shit and start posting shit that actually matters and gets people invested this site is such a mess

      • ssilva872

        Last night was when I saw it. I would die if they wrestled.

  • ???

    I wonder who will be the fifth spot ? I definitely don’t see Dana in .. it will be either Mickie James or Bayley . I hope it’s Mickie since she’s fresh and didn’t compete at SS for YEARS , Bayley already had her moment and WON for her team so she doesn’t need this as much as Mickie do .

  • #FlairfortheGold

    I prefer Nao on TV waayyyy more than Banks… fight me?

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Asuka beating the hell out of the entire Smackdown team would actually be glorious tbh. She needs to be the sole survivor.
    Of course, I need a Charlotte vs Sasha Banks sequence during that match to remind some of these girls what the standards are when it comes to match quality.

    • Izzy4lw

      Honestly Sasha/Charlotte, Sasha/Becky, and Sasha/Naomi would kill it for me personally.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Oh Sasha vs Naomi… I am seriously waiting for a full PPV match between them.

  • Jtiera

    I would be in my feeling my feelings if Paige took the last spot as if Mickie hasn’t been serving the girls lately. But if they had something planned for Mickie at survivor series then I will deal.

  • Izzy4lw

    Hmmmmm… well now I’m in a conundrum – I don’t see the WWE allowing Natalya to go over Bliss, but I also don’t see them allowing Asuka and a fresh from complaining Nia Jax to lose their respective matches either. I also don’t see them Allowing Charlotte to lose – If I had to have a guess, something will happen and Charlotte will win the title before SS and she will go over Bliss, while RAW will beat team SD (I’m assuming Nattie will take Charlotte’s place in the match and would explain why Becky was made champ and not Charlotte, so the championship switch can happen)

    It’s a bit sad how people can formulate rough answers and fairly accurate predictions around who is protected and who isn’t.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      WWE is a garbage mess tbh

      • Izzy4lw

        where is the lie tho?

        I just hope Naomi and Becky lose respectably, because that’ll be 2 losses in a row for team blue.

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          The only one on team blue who should be eliminated honestly is Carmella. Oh and Tamina I forgot about her ass

    • perceval

      It’s always been like that. How often did Hogan lose in the 80s?

  • With asuka on the raw team the Team Red win it’s secure.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Alicia is saving that last spot for a returning Paige I bet you guys!!!!!!

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Well we can safely guarantee another win for team raw this year, thank you asuka for making the outcome ?% predictable. I’m so ready for her to lose the first time so she can finally go in to a match with a surprise outcome.
