In the last few weeks, there has been a strange storyline that has pulled the strings of the rosters, waiting for WWE's last Big Four of the year: Survivor Series to take place. In the last episodes of the red show of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown, in fact, the two official WWE Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce have ousted some athletes from their respective elimination matches typical of the Survivor Series, with Rey Mysterio and Dominik no longer doing part of the dispute or Sami Zayn and also the beautiful Aliyah, all ousted by the federation officials, at different times in the past few weeks.
If Dominik was immediately replaced by Bobby Lashley, who literally paved him last week in a match on Raw and if Rey was instead replaced by Austin Theory, after the Raw attack, what about the seats left empty from Aliyah and Sami Zayn, no news had yet been given about it, until tonight.
The latest news on Survivor Series
If for the last available place in the men's blue team it will still be necessary to wait for tonight's episode of Smackdown, in all likelihood, as regards the hole in the Smackdown women's team, everything has already been smoothed out by WWE, with the release arrived online through the official Sonya Deville, who has entrusted Toni Storm with the position as the new member of the team of the blue show for the Series.
But let's see Deville's message: "With the Survivor Series fast approaching, I want to make sure each brand represents the best and the brightest Superstars. Therefore, it is my pleasure to announce that TONI STORM will be the fifth and final member of the Smackdown female team.
Congratulations and good luck on Sunday!" The words of Sonya Deville obviously echoed the WWE, with her statement arriving after only a few minutes on all the social pages of the company, with which she made it official.
Shinsuke Nakamura has held the Intercontinental Title since August but hasn't accomplished anything significant with it. WWE has not given him any serious rivals lately, causing his character to grow a bit stale. Meanwhile, Damian Priest has been receiving a thunderous push.
The former NXT North American Champion was able to defeat major stars like Drew McIntyre and Sheamus during his title reign. Also, we have seen a much more aggressive side of Damian Priest in recent weeks. This side of him could easily squash Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series.
