This week’s SmackDown witnessed some pivotal moments heading towards the Survivor Series. The show was based on the aftermath of the Crown Jewel, which saw the return of Kairi Sane. That was less than enough to shock the world as former Women’s Champion Asuka stabbed Bianca Belair to join sides with her Japanese friend and Damage CTRL.


The unlikely partnership of Asuka, Bianca Belair, and Charlotte Flair faced Damage CTRL and Kairi Sane in the main event of SmackDown. The closing moments of the match saw The Empress of Tomorrow blinding Belair with the green mist, followed by a kick to the face. It left the WWE Universe completely baffled.

Asuka stunned everyone in the arena with her actions, as Kairi Sane and Damage CTRL were also shocked. Furthermore, The Empress of Tomorrow joined hands with Kairi Sane and Iyo Sky, eventually declaring her alliance with the Damage CTRL. The group then laid off a devastating attack on the EST of WWE and Charlotte Flair.

Damage CTRL has become more powerful than ever. First, Kairi Sane and now Asuka have joined sides with them. It is going to be interesting to see how things go from here on out. Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair must be looking for partners to even the odds. It will be interesting to see who volunteers with both superstars to take on the Damage CTRL in the upcoming weeks.
