Winner: Bobby Lashley
– After the bell, Lashley refuses to break the hold and stares Dominik down. He finally lets Rey go, then stands tall in the middle of the ring as the music hits. Dominik comes in to check on his dad. We see Pearce backstage watching as Schreiber asks for his final thoughts on Survivor Series. Pearce asks if he can borrow the mic. He walks out to the stage. We also see an official tending to Rey in the ring now. Pearce says it’s his job to make sure we have the best competition possible at Survivor Series, which is why it pains him to say… for the well-being of Team RAW, but more importantly for the well-being of Rey Mysterio, he has no choice but to remove Rey from Team RAW. Pearce says his replacement will be named later. Pearce heads back to the back as fans boo. Austin Theory comes from behind and drops Dominik with the ATL. Theory goes to sake a selfie but Pearce comes back out and says he likes Theory’s style, so Theory will be replacing Rey on Team RAW. Theory celebrates with a selfie over Rey and Dominik as officials tend to them. The Survivor Series go-home edition of RAW goes off the air with Theory snapping the photo.
