– Final Member Of Team SmackDown Revealed
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Charlotte Flair defeated Natalya to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. This created a free spot in SmackDown Live’s Women’s team.
There were rumors that Paige would return and occupy that spot, but Shane McMahon confirmed on Twitter that Natalya will be taking that free spot this Sunday at Survivor Series 2017.
Individual competition drives every #SDLive Superstar. Even in defeat, @NatbyNature proved herself to be a fierce competitor and will be an asset to Team Smackdown’s 5 on 5 #SurvivorSeries Team. Let’s go to work, Nattie.
