WWE announces matches for SmackDown, Survivor Series


Two matches are set for next week's episode of SmackDown and a Cruiserweight title match has been confirmed for Survivor Series.

WWE announced on last night's SmackDown that Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable would be challenging for The Usos' Tag Team titles and Rusev would be facing AJ Styles in a Survivor Series qualifying match next Tuesday.

Benjamin & Gable became number one contenders when they defeated Breezango, The Hype Bros, and The Ascension in a fatal four-way match last month. The winner of Rusev vs. Styles will become the final member of SmackDown's men's division Survivor Series team, joining Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Bobby Roode & Shinsuke Nakamura.

Whichever team holds the SmackDown tag titles will face Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose in a non-title match at Survivor Series on November 19th.

On 205 Live last night, it was also announced that Enzo Amore would be defending his Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto at the pay-per-view. That will be Survivor Series' only title match since all of Raw's champions are facing SmackDown's champions in non-title bouts at the show.
