The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE SmackDown Results:
The go-home show for Survivor Series weekend took the idea of brand invasion and cranked it up to eleven. Raw showed up, and then NXT showed out. More on that below, but here are the full results:
- Rhea Ripley def. Charlotte and Sasha Banks in a Captain’s Triple Threat
- Undisputed Era def. Heavy Machinery & New Day
- Daniel Bryan versus The Miz ends in a no-contest due to The Fiend’s interference
- Baron Corbin, Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler def. Roman Reigns, Ali, & Shorty G
We’re going to have Survivor Series and NXT TakeOver: WarGames predictions and reviews, so keep posted to FPC Wrestling.
WWE has introduced a new Intercontinental Championship belt. The title now looks more modern and more in line with other WWE main roster belts. Check it out below. Are you a fan?

The Fiend got the upper hand on Daniel Bryan ahead of their match. Bryan makes for a natural opponent for Wyatt due to their history and Bryan’s work as a tremendous babyface wrestler. If WWE really wants the Fiend presented as a heel, Bryan will be able to get sympathy in a way that Seth Rollins was not able to by the end.
NXT closed the show by channeling their inner DX. Led by former DX members and current NXT honchos Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Road Dogg, NXT invaded in force to close the show. It’s a heck of a visual, and gives hope that NXT is going to get quite a few W’s on Sunday.
Possible Survivor Series Return?
Former WWE Champion Sheamus is backstage at Survivor Series, according to PWInsider. Sheamus has been out of action since Wrestlemania 35 and has not been used since. Apparently Sheamus has been medically cleared to return for over a month now, but hasn’t had a storyline to return with.
One for the Road:
The random Dog Mascot has requested it's release from WWE.
