Becky Lynch has returned from injury and will be participating in WarGames.
On the Nov. 25 episode of SmackDown, the show opened with Team Damage CTRL in the ring. Bayley took to the mic ordering the Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair to come out and stop wasting her time to announce the fifth individual for her team.
Belair came out with her team of Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Mia Yim. Belair pointed out there were still four of them and five of Team Damage CTRL. But as Belair stated on Raw, they weren’t going to be alone. Lynch’s music would hit to a huge crowd reaction.
Lynch would join her team as they rush the ring and both teams brawl. This leads to everyone spilling to the outside besides Lynch and Bayley. The two familiar opponents brawl until Lynch hits a Bexploder. Rhea Ripley would then jump up on the apron to square off against the returning Lynch.
To combat Ripley’s advances, Team Belair would back up Lynch on the apron as Team Damage CTRL stands behind Ripley. Ripley would retreat saving any further fighting for tomorrow’s WarGames bout at Survivor Series.
Sarah Logan has now been renamed to Valhalla. She accompanied The Viking Raiders to the ring in a match against Hit Row w/B-Fab. There was no interaction between the winners, but the Viking Raiders would pick up the victory.
A tag team match was scheduled for tonight between Shotzi & Raquel Rodriguez taking on Shayna Baszler and the SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Shotzi and Rodriguez were being interviewed backstage by Kayla Braxton when Baszler and Rousey attacked them. They targeted Rodriguez to take her out and broke her arm in a road case. Rodriguez was sent to a nearby hospital according to commentary.
Rousey and Baszler took to the ring and stated that there wouldn’t be a match tonight because “accidents happen.” Baszler told Shotzi to stay at the kiddie table because she is not ready. Shotzi made her way out to the ring anyway.
After marching her way to the ring, Shotzi was ready to take on both women. The bell rings as the handicap match starts. After a few minutes into the match, Rodriguez would show she did not go to the hospital as she made her way to the ring. Rodriguez would join the match but Baszler and Rousey would target the already injured arm.
Shotzi attempted to come in to help Rodriguez but Baszler would hold her back on the outside as Rousey causes Rodriguez to tap out. Rousey and Baszler are victorious.
In an update on Rodriguez’s status with medical, Shotzi says that Rodriguez has a broken arm and a dislocated shoulder. She now says this was made personal with Baszler and Rousey because Rodriguez was one person that was there for her.
