SmackDown Five-Point Preview: Nov. 5, 2015
Can The Lucha Dragons & Prime Time Players survive The Wyatt Family?
The road to Survivor Series continues on SmackDown and what better way to get ready for WWE’s annual Thanksgiving week tradition than with another Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match. Tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy, The Lucha Dragons will team up with The Prime Time Players to take on The Wyatt Family in a huge battle for survival.
Kalisto & Sin Cara – who defeated Sheamus & King Barrett on Raw in impressive fashion – combined with the former WWE Tag Team Champions make an exceptionally talented team, but will they be able to survive the fearsome foursome of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan & Braun Strowman? After The New Face of Fear and his frightening followers claimed to have harvested the souls of The Undertaker and Demon Kane, putting on a supernatural display on Raw, can anyone put a stop to the Wyatts’ frightening path of destruction? See which team can endure a Traditional 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match on Thursday’s hottest show.
Will Ambrose pin Owens twice in one week?
After being pinned on Raw by Dean Ambrose during a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match, has Kevin Owens finally met his match?
We will find out tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy, when The Lunatic Fringe goes head-to-head with the Intercontinental Champion. Already with one pinfall on the titleholder this week, another victory on SmackDown would go a long way toward making the unstable Ambrose a challenger to Owens’ coveted title. Will Ambrose pin Fight Owens Fight again or will WWE’s prizefighter show that Ambrose’s Dirty Deeds on Raw was just a fluke? No matter who walks out of Thursday’s hottest show the winner, you can bet we are in store for one hell of a fight.
Can Alberto Del Rio ground Neville?
Since returning to WWE, Alberto Del Rio not only won John Cena’s U.S. Open Challenge, subsequently earning the United States Championship, but also started his own nation with Zeb Colter called “MexAmerica.” And tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy, the “Essence of Excellence” will kick off SmackDown when he battles Neville in an electric encounter.
Will the veteran Del Rio be able to use his in-ring expertise to ground The Man That Gravity Forgot? Or will the high-flying Neville introduce “MexAmerica” to the Red Arrow? Plus, after Jack Swagger’s talk with his former mentor was cut short by the self-proclaimed “MexAmerica Champion” on Raw, will The Real American continue to seek an explanation from Colter on his newfound allegiance with his former rival?
The Usos return to SmackDown
With Jey Uso fully recovered from his shoulder injury, The Usos were together again Monday night when they joined Team Reigns in Raw’s Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Match. Despite both being eliminated amid the action-packed contest, Jimmy & Jey’s aerial offense was on full display in their return to the ring. Look for more of the same high-flying action when the former WWE Tag Team Champions have their first match on SmackDown in seven months when they battle The Ascension.
Will the Samoan Superstars go “Uso Crazy” on their cosmic foes? Plus, will Stardust be in attendance to cheer on his Cosmic Wasteland cohorts? Don’t miss hard-hitting tag team action tonight at 8/7 C on Syfy!
What’s next for the Divas Revolution?
Paige is the new No. 1 contender to Charlotte’s Divas Championship after winning a Fatal 4-Way Match on Raw, so how will the rest of the Divas division react? With the titleholder and The Diva of Tomorrow set for a Survivor Series clash, the rest of the ladies in the locker room are left to battle for positioning amid an impassioned Divas Revolution.
With Team PCB no more, will Becky Lynch continue to support Charlotte in her rivalry with their former friend or look to fight among a crowded field of competitors on her own? Team Bella’s future is up in the air with Nikki Bella losing her chance to recapture the Divas Title at WWE Hell in a Cell, Brie Bella missing out on a No. 1 contender opportunity on Raw and Alicia Fox recently revealing a brand-new hairdo. Meanwhile, Team B.A.D. set their sights on Natalya, attacking The Queen of Harts last week on SmackDown. So, what will happen next in the ever-evolving Divas Revolution? Find out tonight on Thursday night’s hottest show.
Update: On WWE's Facebook page, Natalya challenged the "leader" of Team B.A.D. to a match on SmackDown. Find out who steps up to battle The Queen of Harts and stake their claim as the head of Team B.A.D. tonight on Syfy.
