All of WWE's teams for Survivor Series are now complete.

Sheamus secured the final spot on Team SmackDown for Survivor Series by winning a fatal four-way match on tonight's SmackDown. The men's five-on-five elimination match at this Sunday's pay-per-view will pit SmackDown's Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, Xavier Woods, Baron Corbin & Sheamus against Raw's Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley & Austin Theory.

Sheamus defeated Cesaro, Ricochet, and Jinder Mahal to win tonight's fatal four-way match. After a distraction by Ridge Holland, Sheamus hit a Brogue Kick on Cesaro and pinned him to get the win.

Holland was called up from NXT in the WWE Draft last month. He's recently been doing interviews on SmackDown talking about how Sheamus is his idol.

Tonight was Sheamus' return to WWE television after undergoing surgery for a broken nose in September. It was the second broken nose that Sheamus has suffered this year.

Sami Zayn was originally announced as one of the members of Team SmackDown, but he lost his spot last Friday. Hardy defeated Zayn in a match where the loser was removed from Survivor Series.
