Nikki Bella def. Natalya to become captain of the SmackDown LIVE 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women's Elimination Match
SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan set the stakes high when he determined that the winner of this matchup between Nikki Bella and Natalya would be captain of the SmackDown LIVE Women’s Survivor Series Team, while the loser wouldn’t even be on the Team Blue squad.
These two Total Divas stars did not hold back from start to finish. However, though The Queen of Black Harts wore down Fearless Nikki, in the end it was Bella who found a way and defeated Natalya with her boyfriend John Cena’s signature STF.
However, Nikki could not bask in her captaincy status for long, as, per usual, Carmella ran out and attacked her, putting Bella down with Nikki’s very own Bella Buster.
