WWE Smackdown kicks off with clips of last week’s show. We see a clip of Baron Corbin insulting Roman Reigns and their match from last week.
Back in the arena, the show kicks off with Baron Corbin’s music playing. Corbin is sitting on a thrown which is being held by six men bringing him down to the ring. Standing in the ring are Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, who helped him defeat Roman Reigns.
Baron Corbin tells everyone that before he begins but just as he speaks, the fans boo him. Corbin says they need to respect their king and they should be like their brave and wise superstars who pledge their loyalty to his kingdom. Corbin says he wants to talk about the responsibility of being a king and a great leader. And that is to tell everyone the harsh truth but when it is necessary to hear the truth. He came out last week and told everyone that their hero Roman Reigns isn’t the man he used to be. He’s still an all time great but a shell of a man he once was.
Corbin says Roman refuses to believe that just like most of them but he proved it. He proved it is no longer Roman’s yard, it is his kingdom. And as their king, he declares that he is team captain of team Smackdown at Survivor Series. A graphic shows Corbin leading Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Ali and Shorty G for their Survivor Series fight.
Dolph says Roman has been a step behind as he has attempted to undermined his leadership. The only reasoon Shorty G and Mustafa Ali made it on the team is because they were running with Roman and everyone knows they don’t deserve it and it should have been them.
Robert says that is right and tonight they rectify that mistake. They saw how their locker room leader was doing things. Ali and Shorty G were given participation awards and hand outs but that won’t fly under King Corbin’s rules. Dolph says tonight they will do what they were born to do and that is to beat up on G and Ali. They will take their spot on team Smackdown.
Corbin says he will invited Roman Reigns out right now and if they are team mates at Survivor Series, they should be able to co-exist in the ring right now. Roman’s music hits and his video tron has been modified and it’s a small cartoon dog as someone dressed up in a dog costume wearing a Roman Reigns vest walks down to the ring.

Miz TV with The Miz and Daniel Bryan
The Miz gets in the ring and welcomes everyone to Miz TV. He recaps that The Fiend attacked Daniel Bryan last week and he will find out why. He introduces Daniel Bryan to the ring. Out comes Bryan to the show.
Miz asks Bryan why he thinks The Fiend attacked him. Miz asks why out of everyone would The Fiend attack him? Bryan stays silent. Miz says he thinks The Fiend sees that he is mentally unstable and he isn’t the same as he was 10 years ago. No one knows who Daniel Bryan is. Miz asks if he is the new Daniel Bryan or the one that says yes? The truth is he thinks The Fiend sees that he is washed up and he wants to be the one to end Daniel Bryan.
As he says that, Bryan stands up and says the reason he was silent is because Miz TV sucks. And Miz TV has always sucked. But he is right. He is not the Daniel Bryan he was 10 years ago, the leader of the yes movement. And he is mentally unstable but one thing that’s the same as it was before. And that is passion. Bryan says the passion that lead him to overcome the odds to main event Wrestlemania. Miz tries to cut him off as Bryan tells him to shut his mouth. Bryan says no one understands the passion combined with the mental instability. The same one that caused him to kick someone in the balls to win the WWE championship or the one that ended the yes movement. Bryan says Miz doesn’t understand it but Bray Wyatt does.
Bryan says Wyatt is mentally unstable and we’ve never seen anything like him. We don’t know if he is Bray Wyatt or the Fiend. He is unstable. Mentally unstable. But so is he and there is nobody better and as he is talking, the Firefly Fun House starts. Wyatt says it is rude to talk about someone when they are present. Being confused is scary but maybe that is why he did it, to scare him. Or maybe he did it to remind him about what he did. Wyatt says Bryan remembers because he really think he does.
Wyatt opens a box and he starts throwing objects out from the box. He grabs the WWE Universal championship. He asks if he wants to come play and all he has to do is say that one magical word. Wyatt tells him to say it, he knows he wants to. The fans chant yes as Bryan says no. The different characters in the Funhouse say yes as Bryan says no.
Bryan says no, he is not going to play with him and his puppets. He is trying to manipulate him and the people but he is not a puppet. And it’s clear he has a problem with him and if he wants to fight, to fight. But if they are going to do it, to do it for the Universal championship. He asks Bray what he thinks. Bray says to that he has to say yes. He starts chanting yes until it cuts.
In the ring, The Miz says it will be Daniel Bryan against The Fiend Bray Wyatt for the Universal championship at Survivor Series.
