WWE SmackDown Recap (11/5): Dean Ambrose Vs. Kevin Owens, Survivor Series Elimination Match, More

Welcome to Wrestling Inc's coverage of Smackdown. Tonight's show features Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens, and a Survivor Series Elimination Match!

- Zeb Colter comes out with Alberto Del Rio, calls the fans haters. The announcers didn't seem to know what to think of Zeb and Del Rio eliminating hate.

Alberto Del Rio (w/ Zeb Colter) vs. Neville

Neville lands a huracanrana early on and gets in some offense, but Del Rio cuts him off dead in his tracks with a lungblower as we go to a commercial. We come back to see Del Rio tossing Neville into the ringside guardrail. Finally Neville battles back with a big series of kicks and a moonsault outside the ring. He gets a two on a huracanrana attempt. Del Rio catches Neville on the top rope, and gets the double foot stomp for the win.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio via pinfall (double foot stomp)

Del Rio continued the assault after the match, and Jack Swagger made the save. Swagger got in Del Rio's face, but ADR backed out.

The Usos vs. The Ascension

It's good to see the Usos back. Ascension got the early offense, working over Jimmy in their corner. Viktor had some nice offense here. Jey got the tag and punished Viktor with a Samoan drop and the running corner hip bump, but the count got broken up before the three.

Konnor gets blasted with a superkick by Jimmy, bounced off the ropes, then got drilled with a double superkick, which was a cool spot. Viktor also eats a superkick, followed by the superfly splash for the win.

Winners: The Usos (Superfly Splash)

- We see a recap of the Wyatts harvesting souls.

Survivor Series Match
The Wyatt Family vs. Lucha Dragons & Prime Time Players

This is a good way to showcase The Wyatt family. They are in control early, as the Wyatts beat down Young pretty badly. Strowman locks on the arm-triangle choke while Young is tied up in the ropes. He drops Young to the outside of the ring, where Young is counted out.

Titus O'Neil gets attacked from behind by Braun while checking on Young, and the Lucha Dragons offer no help. This causes Titus to get mollywhopped by the entire Wyatt Family for several minutes. Finally, Sin Cara gets a hot tag and goes nuts, landing a suicide dive on Rowan and huracanrana on Harper. Cara scores a tornado DDT on Harper, but Rowan breaks it up and Harper destroys Cara with a discus lariat for the pin. Cara is eliminated.

Kalisto comes in and lands a few kicks, but is quickly suplexed and beat down. Titus gets yanked off the apron before he can make a tag, but Kalisto still fights back briefly. He's eventually pinned after a full nelson slam for Erick Rowan.

Titus comes in and runs through his usual hot tag massacre, powerslamming Harper, and then powerbombing him. Strowman catches Titus with the arm-triangle, then Wyatt hits Sister Abigail for the victory.

Winners: The Wyatt Family

- Renee Young is backstage talking to Dean Ambrose, who said he's enjoying Colorado. Kevin Owens came up and talked trash, saying tonight he faces Ambrose one-on-one, and it won't be a circus like on Monday.

Ryback vs. King Barrett

This match was really short. Barrett controlled the early going of the match, but ultimately fell victim to a giant Meat Hook Clothesline and Shellshocked. The brakes have been pumped on Barrett again.

Winner: Ryback via pinfall (Shellshocked)

- Sasha Banks is backstage with Renee and said Natalya finally got the attention she wanted from Team BAD. Natalya offered to face any of Team BAD, which happens next.

Natalya vs. Tamina (w/ Team BAD)

Tamina scores some ugly kicks to start the match, but Natalya fires back with a big clothesline. Natalya is already setting up for a Sharpshooter, but Sasha Banks distracts her, which allows Tamina to hit a Samoan Drop. Tamina eats canvas on her splash, which allows Natalya to roll her up for the win.

Winner: Natalya via pinfall

Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose

Ambrose controls this until Kevin Owens heaves him into the ringside barricade two times. Back inside the ring, Owens lands a senton and a gutbuster. Ambrose fights back on the top rope, and gets Owens with a huge superplex and a tornado DDT, but Owens manages to kick out at the count of two.

Ambrose avoids a powerbomb, gets superkicked, but comes right back with his rebound clothesline. Ambrose boots Owens in the guts to set up Dirty Deeds, but Owens acted like he got kicked between the legs. The ref saw this and DQ'd Ambrose.

Winner: Kevin Owens via DQ

After the match the referee saw the replay and yelled at Owens. Ambrose hits two suicide dives, but Owens ran away through the crowd to end the show.
