Survivor Series got off to a very strong start for Team RAW tonight as their women's team defeated Team Smackdown in the opening match.
A very interesting dynamic saw Bayley and the RAW Women's Champion Charlotte as the survivors for Team RAW.
Onto the next stage
Bayley was the woman to claim victory for her brand as she eliminated Smackdown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

Charlotte had been looking for the tag while Bayley got the final pinfall and clearly it outraged the Queen - something she wasn't about to let go.
It didn't take long for alliances to crumble as Charlotte attacked her team-mate whilst the referee was holding both of their hands in victory.
What followed would be a vicious assault by Charlotte on her former NXT compatriot as she threw Bayley into the barricade surrounding the ring multiple times.
Bayley was left lying in a heap at ringside as Charlotte and Dana Brooke both left with smiles on their faces.
It looks like this could have been the WWE's way of moving on from the Sasha Banks vs Charlotte feud which has captivated audiences for months.
The women's Survivor Series match both started and ended with a surprise attack as Smackdown's Nikki Bella wasn't actually able to compete in the match.
One woman down
During the entrances for the match, Nikki Bella's music hit but the captain of Team Smackdown never appeared on the stage.
The camera would then appear backstage where Bella was being evaluated after she claimed to Smackdown General Manager Daniel Bryan that someone hit her from behind.
Team Smackdown coach Natalya took her place in the match, but now the question who attacked Nikki Bella is set to be asked by everyone on Smackdown.
