Sasha Banks vs. Shotzi, Sheamus return set for WWE SmackDown


Sasha Banks vs. Shotzi and the return of Sheamus will take place on SmackDown next week.

Banks vs. Shotzi was announced prior to tonight’s SmackDown main event. Shotzi started their feud two weeks ago on SmackDown, when Shotzi attacked Banks after she lost a match to Charlotte Flair. On tonight’s show, Shotzi and Banks were involved in a brawl that included the entire women's SmackDown Survivor Series team, eventually leading to a six-person tag match where Aliyah, Banks, and Naomi defeated Shotzi, Natalya, and Shayna Baszler.

Ridge Holland announced tonight that Sheamus would be returning on next week’s show. Sheamus has been off television since undergoing surgery for a broken nose in September. Holland in recent weeks has praised Sheamus in backstage promos. Cesaro walked up to Holland during tonight’s promo and told Holland to be careful around Sheamus. Holland brushed him off, saying that he and Sheamus would make a far better team than The Bar.
