WWE announces two Survivor Series qualifying matches for SmackDown


SmackDown's men's team for Survivor Series will continue to take shape tonight.

WWE has announced two Survivor Series qualifying matches for tonight's episode of SmackDown. They are: Seth Rollins vs. Otis and Rey Mysterio vs. Baron Corbin.

This will be Mysterio's first match since suffering a partially torn triceps this August.

Mysterio's feud against Rollins moved from Raw to SmackDown as Mysterio, his son Dominik, Rollins, and Murphy were all drafted by SmackDown in the WWE Draft last month. Last week, there was a segment where Aalyah Mysterio confessed that she loves Murphy and kissed him. Rollins also tried to convince Aalyah that her father is controlling her and will never accept her relationship with Murphy.

Otis lost his Money in the Bank contract to The Miz at Hell in a Cell. Tucker, who moved to Raw in the WWE Draft, turned against Otis and cost him the match.

Survivor Series is taking place on Sunday, November 22. Kevin Owens and Jey Uso have already qualified for SmackDown's men's Survivor Series team. Team SmackDown will be facing Team Raw in a five-on-five traditional Survivor Series elimination match. AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Sheamus, and Braun Strowman have qualified for Team Raw thus far.

Bianca Belair has qualified for SmackDown's women's team for Survivor Series. Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, and Lana are on Team Raw.

Sasha Banks defending her SmackDown Women's Championship against Bayley has also been announced for tonight's SmackDown.
