And there’s the rest of it. WWE is currently getting ready for the big finale of its major November angle: the NXT Invasion. The story is tied into the annual Survivor Series event, featuring a battle between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. This year’s event is different though, with the addition of NXT. This means that there are several names added to the show who may not have been seen before and that has shaken things up quite a bit. Now we know something a little more specific.
During this week’s SmackDown, the NXT Women’s Survivor Series team was revealed in full. Coming into this week, the only member of the team announced had been captain Rhea Ripley. Now the entire full team has been revealed, with Tegan Nox, Toni Storm, Mia Yim and Candice LeRae joining Ripley. Storm is a surprise, as she has been almost entirely absent since losing the NXT UK Women’s Title to Kay Lee Ray in August.
It was all part of a huge triple threat match. Check out the captain’s brawl from SmackDown:
Storm knows she is awesome. Check out her promo after the show:
Opinion: This is one of those things that you could probably guess coming into the match but it is still rather fun to see the actual team. Storm is the one who interests me the most as it could imply that she is coming over to American NXT full time, which would be a major boost for the brand. She has as much star power as anyone in the division and that is always a perk to have around. The rest of the team is rather strong as well, so maybe we can get a great match as a result.
How does the team sound to you? Who will win the match? Let us know in the comments below.
