WWE SmackDown Live Preview: November 14, 2017
Rapid developments impacting Survivor Series unfolded on Raw, with the Shield calling out New Day for a showdown, Triple H returning and inserting himself as the fifth member of Team Raw and Paul Heyman delivering a sermon to AJ Styles on the ramifications of stepping up to the Beast.
It was as strong a go-home show as anyone would have expected from the Red brand and that now leaves SmackDown Live with the onus of stepping up their own game, just days removed from Survivor Series.
Will we see unexpected Title changes, a reshuffle of the respective men's and women's teams or perhaps both?
And what part will a returning Daniel Bryan have to play in all of this?
Find out as we preview this week's episode of SmackDown Live.
#1 SmackDown Live Women's Championship on the line
Charlotte Flair has a golden opportunity to upset the applecart and win the SmackDown Live Women's Championship from Natalya when she challenges for it in her hometown.
Natalya has shown herself capable of going to any lengths to retain her belt, as evinced by her sickening chair attack on Charlotte's knee.
But if she does retain her Title using similar means, how much damage would she be doing Team SmackDown's chances at Survivor Series by injuring Charlotte again?
And what will Alexa Bliss, who's hinted at being present for the match, have to play in its outcome?
An intriguing situation, whichever way you look at it.
