It was not a good night for one WWE star after they were abandoned by their tag team partner on SmackDown.

Problems have been brewing between The Brawling Brutes’ Ridge Holland and Butch over the last couple of weeks as Sheamus continues to be absent from WWE due to injury.

On SmackDown in Chicago, things took a turn for the worst as The Brutes took on Pretty Deadly for the fourth time in seven weeks on TV. The Brawling Brutes have not won any of those bouts and things got too much for Ridge Holland as he walked out on Butch soon into the bout, leaving him to fall to a quick defeat at the hands of Pretty Deadly.

What else happened on WWE SmackDown?

One Survivor Series match has been changed due to an attack on the show. Santos Escobar took out Carlito on the show leading to Dragon Lee replacing him in the Survivor Series bout against Escobar.

It was a good night for The Judgment Day ahead of WarGames at Survivor Series as Finn Balor and Damian Priest retained the WWE Tag Team Championship against The Street Profits.
