A “welcome back” chant starts up. Shane brings up the Survivor Series pay-per-view and says it’s the only time RAW and SmackDown go head-to-head. He learned at a young age that it’s always best to strike first in a big fight, which is why he and some of the SmackDown Superstars made a visit to RAW last week. Shane says Kurt angle desperately called him and needed a TLC opponent for Finn Balor’s Demon character, and that’s when it hit him… “they” then decided to send AJ Styles and let him stay for another night to appear on RAW.

Sami is here to inform Shane that he and his brother Kevin Owens have thought it over and fine, they will be a part of the SmackDown Survivor Series team. They will do what they do ever night, put the brand on their shoulders as leaders and the rest can follow. Sami says Shane wants he and Owens to represent SmackDown at Survivor Series, he needs them to represent SmackDown.
