A new match is now official for the next WWE premium live event.
During this week’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Santos Escobar explained his actions after savagely attacking Rey Mysterio and turning on the LWO on last week’s show.
After backing off from Carlito after attacking the other members of the LWO on tonight’s SmackDown, it was announced that Santos Escobar vs. Carlito will take place in one-on-one action at WWE Survivor Series 2023.
The Women’s WarGames match for WWE Survivor Series 2023 is also official after this week’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
The show opened this week with the new-and-improved Damage CTRL group consisting of Bayley, IYO SKY, Kairi Sane and Asuka, with Dakota Kai, and they teased being too much for anyone to deal with at WarGames.
They wrapped up the opening promo segment by telling Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair and Shotzi to find a partner for WarGames. Nick Aldis then told the trio that they had until the end of the night to find a partner for the bout.
Throughout the evening, Damage CTRL attacked anyone that Bianca Belair tried approaching to join her team, including backstage assaults of Michin and Zelina Vega.
When all was said-and-done, however, it was “The Man” Becky Lynch who received a call from Charlotte Flair and joined “The Queen,” Belair and Shotzi in the ring for a show-ending brawl with Damage CTRL.
WWE Survivor Series 2023 takes place on November 25 from AllState Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
