Raw launched a vicious counter-siege on SmackDown
Before turning their attention to a huge first-time-ever matchup against Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens, The New Day looked to impart the Power of Positivity upon their dream showdown against The Shield this Sunday at Survivor Series, noting that they were far more unified than The Hounds of Justice.
However, that all changed when The Shield’s music suddenly rang through the arena, and the combatants of SmackDown realized that Raw’s counterstrike had finally arrived.
When The Hounds of Justice surrounded the ring, Zayn and Owens opted to bail, and Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns attacked The New Day. The Usos soon joined the fray, followed by Cesaro and Sheamus, resulting in an out-of-control melee.
Meanwhile, the Raw Women’s division emerged backstage and delivered a systematic onslaught upon the Team Blue ladies, as Alexa Bliss punctuated the attack with a clubbing blow to Charlotte, her opponent at Survivor Series in a Champion vs. Champion Match.
Back in the ring, another wave of Raw Superstars hit the scene, drawing Shane McMahon and a slew of SmackDown Superstars to join the fight, but things went from back to worse for the blue brand when Raw Commissioner Kurt Angle summoned Braun Strowman into the squared circle to help clean house.
With SmackDown Superstars laid out in every direction, the Superstars of Raw converged on Shane McMahon. With The Shield holding SmackDown’s Commissioner, Angle made it clear to Shane that this counter-siege will be nothing compared to Sunday at Survivor Series.
Just to make sure the point was driven home, The Shield wrecked Shane with a Triple Powerbomb, Angle took down his nemesis with a picture-perfect Angle Slam, and The Hounds nearly sent Shane through the canvas with another of their trademark Triple Powerbombs.
