Raw superstar Drew McIntyre made a rare SmackDown appearance this week as he targeted Roman Reigns days before facing Randy Orton for the WWE Championship.
The night started with the Tribal Chief making his way to the ring to hype up his match with Orton at Survivor Series on November 22, as he pointed to the ratings and called the blue brand ‘The Island of Relevancy’.
Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins came together for what we were promised to be the Final Chapter of their long running rivalry, with Murphy, Angie, Dominik and Aalyah all at ringside for the No Holds Barred bout.
This was a fantastic match, and the Disciple’s betrayal of the SmackDown Saviour leading to Mysterio’s 619 and Eddie Guerrero-inspired Frog Splash on the anniversary of his death was a perfect way to end this.
The family gave their approval for Aalyah and Murphy, and it seems the latter is poised for a cracking feud with Rollins.
Meanwhile, Chelsea Green made her debut in a Fatal 4 Way Match against Natalya, Liv Morgan and Tamina Snuka, with all four women going all out here before Morgan picked up the win to qualify for Survivor Series.
It’s since emerged that Green got injured, which explains her low-key first appearance – hopefully she can recover and reach the heights everyone knows she’s capable of.
