The Women’s elimination match kicked off the main card for this year’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view.
The match featured SmackDown Captain Sasha Banks, Carmella, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross vs. NXT Captain Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Toni Storm vs. Raw Captain Charlotte Flair, Sarah Logan, Natalya, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka and Kairi Sane. The NXT women’s team was announced last night by Rhea Ripley during the NXT TakeOver: WarGames post-show live stream with Triple H and Cathy Kelley.
The first two eliminations were Io Shirai and Candice LeRae after a spot outside of the ring that was not shown on camera. This looked like a storyline injury and a way to get them out of the match without pinning them.
There was trouble between Asuka and Flair when Flair tagged herself in. They shoved each other and then Flair yanked Asuka down by the hair. Asuka blew green mist in Flair’s eyes and that allowed Lacey Evans to hit the Women’s right and she got the pin. Asuka walked off. Natalya was left alone on team Raw. Natalya and Sasha Banks worked together to force Toni Storm to submit. Storm was locked in the Banks statement and the sharpshooter at the same time. Banks, Natalya and Ripley were the final 3 women in the match but Banks turned on Natalya and pinned her. In the final minutes of the match, Banks had the Banks statement locked in and Candice LeRae and Io Shirai ran in and pulled Ripley out of the ring to break up the hold. Shirai hit a double dropkick while LeRae distracted the referee. Ripley won with the Riptide.
