Sasha Banks (C) vs. Bayley – SmackDown Women’s Championship
Banks wins with the Bank Statement.
Winner: Sasha Banks
After the match, Carmella super kicks Sasha at the top of the ramp and slams her face first.
Jey Uso and Kevin Owens are backstage, and Owens makes a joke about Jey brewing Roman coffee and doing things for him. Jey takes offense, and Owens says he was just kidding but he wanted to talk about Survivor Series because they’re teammates, but it looks like he has a lot on his mind. So he’ll leave him be.
We get a video package of the Reigns/Uso saga.
Jey Uso says last week, he did what he had to do with Daniel Bryan. Heyman comes in and says Roman didn’t authorize the interview and he needs to talk to him.
Rey Mysterio is on the phone trying to contact Aliyah but she’s not answering. Dominik says Rey’s match is next and Rey asks if he’s seen her. He says no and Rey orders him to get his gear. King Corbin ambushes Rey before Dominik chases him off.
Heyman tells Jey that he needs to run things by Roman first, and Jey expresses displeasure at that. Paul asks Jey to stay here and he’ll bring Roman out when he’s ready. Out comes Roman and he asks Jey why he’s doing interviews. Roman says there’s a chain of command and he needs to talk to him or Paul before doing independent interviews. He then asks about Kevin Owens and doesn’t take kindly to him making jokes about his family. He suggests Jey is soft for allowing KO to say things like that. Jey says he’ll handle it.
Roman asks Paul if he knew about it, and he said he just knew about it, and Roman tells him he’s supposed to know and handle everything so he doesn’t have to. He orders Paul to get Adam Pearce, because he plans on handling the Kevin Owens problem tonight.
