This past Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown featured the Survivor Series fallout for the blue brand, a new number contender being crowned, and the return of Brock Lesnar announced.
Sami Zayn won the battle royal to become the new number contender for Roman Reigns’ Universal Title. There’s still no word yet on when the match will take place, but it’s likely to be at the Day 1 PPV event on January 1st.
Fightful Select reports battle royal was produced by Michael Hayes and Petey Williams. After this match, it was announced that Lesnar would be on next week’s show as his storyline suspension has been lifted.
Also, Shane Helms and Kenny Dykstra produced Jeff Hardy and Drew McIntyre vs. Madcap Moss and Baron Corbin while Cesaro vs. Ridge Holland was produced by Adam Pearce.
D-Von Dudley and Jimmy Wang Yang put together Rick Boogs vs. Angel Garza while Charlotte Flair's promo and the women's tag team match were produced by TJ Wilson.
