3 Things we could see on SmackDown this week (November 8, 2019)
After invasions on both SmackDown and RAW, NXT Superstars have made clear that they will leave no stone unturned to win the battle of brands at Survivor Series, where all three brands will clash. WWE announced two matches for Survivor Series on RAW this week, and more matches could be added to the pay-per-view on this week's edition of Friday Night SmackDown. Tyson Fury, who made his WWE debut at Crown Jewel, will also be present on this week's show.
It all began on the SmackDown after Crown Jewel, as NXT made a shocking invasion, taking out a number of SmackDown Superstars throughout the show. NXT Champion Adam Cole retained his title successfully against Daniel Bryan in what was certainly a dream match for many fans. Another title match took place last week, as Bayley defeated Nikki Cross, continuing her reign as SmackDown Women's Champion, but her celebration was cut short by NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler. While Tommaso Ciampa beat The Miz, the team of Tegan Fox and Rhea Ripley earned a victory over Fire & Desire.
This Friday's SmackDown will be held at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Here we discuss three things we could see on SmackDown.
#3 Shayna Baszler faces Sasha Banks in a singles match
A Triple Threat Match is already set between Becky Lynch, Bayley, and Shayna Baszler at Survivor Series. Last week, the NXT Women's Champion ambushed SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley. In fact, Baszler also put her hands on Bayey's best friend, Sasha Banks, while entering the ring.
A singles match between Bayley and Baszler isn't all that likely to happen before Survivor Series, as neither woman wants to lose momentum before heading into the big clash on November 24th. However, fans would love to see a monumental battle between Sasha Banks and Shayna Baszler, especially after the vicious assault last week.
'The Boss' has not been in action since Hell in a Cell, where she came up short against Becky Lynch. If Baszler and Banks wrestle on the Blue Brand this week, the match has a possibility of ending in disqualification, after interference from Bayley.
