There was an injury on WWE Smackdown last night. Chelsea Green made her Smackdown debut. She was in a fatal 4-way match with Natalya, Liv Morgan and Tamina. The winner of that match would be the third woman on Team Smackdown at Survivor Series. However, during the match, Green was injured and later diagnosed with a broken wrist. She had surgery today.
Liv Morgan went on to win the match by pinning Tamina. However, the original plan was for Green to get the win. Since Green got hurt, the referee and the women in the match improvised on the finish with Morgan getting the win to join Team Smackdown.
Green posted this photo on Instagram last night and you can see the x-ray of her broken left hand.

Green also tweeted about the injury too.
Just like the rest of my career, I couldn’t have an easy debut! LOL, that just wouldn’t be fit for my wild journey.
I’m headed into surgery now. I am beyond devastated but so excited to be a part of @WWE team SmackDown, when I get back! 💙

Chelsea’s fiance is Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder, and he posted Twitter to support her. As you could see, he was right there at the hospital with her.

Best wishes to Chelsea in her recovery.
That win by Morgan was the only change to the Survivor Series lineup with one more episode of Raw and Smackdown before Survivor Series on November 22.
This Monday’s Raw will see Randy Orton defend the WWE Title against Drew McIntyre. The winner of that match will face Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Survivor Series.
Raw will also have the Raw Tag Team Titles on the line with The New Day defending the titles against Hurt Business members Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. The winners of that match will face Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits at Survivor Series.
That means the updated Survivor Series lineup looks like this.
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton
Smackdown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks vs. Raw Women’s Champion Asuka
5-on-5 Men’s Elimination Tag Team Match: Team Smackdown (Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin, Seth Rollins and one more superstar) vs. Team Raw (AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Sheamus, Braun Strowman and Riddle)
Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) vs. Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods)
Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn vs. United States Champion Bobby Lashley
5-on-5 Women’s Elimination Tag Team Match: Team Smackdown (Bianca Belair, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and two others) vs. Team Raw (Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Dana Brooke, Mandy Rose and Lana)
Plus, The Undertaker will make a “Final Farewell” special appearance.
That’s all for now. As noted, Monday’s Raw and next Friday’s Smackdown are the last shows before Survivor Series.
