WWE SmackDown kicks off with highlights of last week’s show. We see clips of Damage CTRL fighting Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch and Shotzi.
Live in the arena, Becky Lynch’s music hits and out she comes with Shotzi, Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair.
The fans chant “Becky” and she says it has been a while but she is happy to stand in the ring and say that the Man has come around SmackDown. And she knows people have been worrying why she has agreed to team with who she is teaming with but when the offer comes to slap the head off Damage CTRL, the answer is always going to be a yes.
Becky says and what better place to do that than in Chicago at War Games. Bianca says now that they have four members and a solid team, War Games is the match for them to get their licks back. The fans chant “EST” and Bianca tells the fans she loves them. The fans chant “Wooo” as Flair Woo’s. Bianca says but at War Games, when Damage CTRL goes low, they won’t just go lower but they’ll go to war.
Shotzi laughs and says she can barely contain herself thinking about all the carnage. She says Damage CTRL humiliated her when they held her down and cut her hair but they made her stronger, unpredictable and unbreakable. And she can’t wait to unleash her madness on them.
Flair looks at Shotzi and says what Shotzi said and the fans “Wooo” again. Flair says War Games is a new beginning for them, she says that looking at Becky. And that War Games is the end for Damage CTRL. As she is talking, Bayley’s music hits and out she comes.
The fans boo Bayley and she says hello to you too idiots. She says she didn’t think she would see the day where Charlotte and Becky are standing together, fighting the good fight together. Everyone knows that she knows them the longest. When she and Flair had a car ride together, Flair always said something about Becky. And when she would speak to Becky, she would take a stab at Flair. But it’s two egos clashing, fighting to the top and she gets it. Bayley says being a mom has made Becky soft. It seems to her that Becky is fine with being picked last. She is the last resort, she is picked last probably like she was picked last in school.
Bayley says War Games is one of the most brutal matches of all time and you need a cohesive unit and the only cohesive unit is Damage CTRL. Flair tells her she is out here alone and asks her where her team members are. Becky says she didn’t come to Chicago to talk, she came looking for a fight. Becky challenges two from Bayley’s team against herself and Flair in the main event. Bayley says that is exactly what she wanted and how their team is going to implode. Bayley’s music hits and she heads to the back.
We see clips from Raw’s main event with Cody Rhodes announcing Randy Orton as a team member for their War Games match.
A fun start to SmackDown. They did well plying on the rivalry of Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. Bayley was good in this too. #SmackDown— Wrestleview.com (@wrestleview) November 25, 2023
