WWE SmackDown Spoilers & Discussion (11/8)

WWE taped this week’s episode of SmackDown at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland today. This is the first taped episode of SmackDown since the show moved to Tuesday nights on the USA Network.

– This week’s episode of SmackDown opens up with Shane McMahon introducing several stars to the ring, including WWE Champion AJ Styles and James Ellsworth. Ellsworth gets named the official “team mascot” for SmackDown at Survivor Series. A six-man tag is set up for tonight that will feature the team of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Randy Orton, taking on the team of Dean Ambrose, Baron Corbin, and James Ellsworth.

Naomi def. Natalya: Nikki Bella was on commentary for this one. Carmella came out to ringside and caused a distraction, which lead to Naomi rolling up Natalya for the win.

– Baron Corbin approaches Shane McMahon backstage to complain, and says that he’s not going to work tonight’s six-man tag main event. Shane tells Corbin he’ll have to wrestle Kalisto instead, and puts Kane in the main event as his replacement.
