SmackDown Live continues to throw up surprises every single week since the brand split in the summer.

Having been considered the 'B Show' to Monday Night Raw basically since its incarnation back in 1999 - with a brief break between 2002-2005 maybe - their ratings have soared since the brand split to rival that of Raw's.

The Blue Brand pulled out another last minute twist last night when they made an adjustment to their top five male superstars who are to face Raw's best five at Survivor Series.

Originally it was AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin who were set to collide with Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman.

However, last night on SmackDown Live in Glasgow, Scotland, Baron Corbin went down with an injury after an attack from Kalisto, of all people.

It was later revealed that Corbin would be unable to compete this Sunday and at the close of the show, it was revealed that commissioner Shane McMahon would step into the breach.

This will be Shane-O-Mac's first match since taking on The Undertaker in a hugely entertaining Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 32 and he has previous with a Survivor Series main event after taking part in the Alliance Vs WWF five-on-five match back in 2001.

However, at this time of writing, there has been no word as to whether Corbin's injuries are legitimate or not.

There is no doubt the storyline was pencilled in; it is not something the WWE did on the fly. But it is possible that Corbin had been carrying the injury and the company just had to make a call.

If it turns out that Corbin is fit and healthy, then it has to be considered a bad decision. This was finally an opportunity for the Lone Wolf to show what he can do.

Do you guys think the WWE have made the right call here? Let us know in the comments below.
