A new-look Survivor Series thrilled the TD Garden in Boston on Saturday as The Bloodline claimed victory in a WarGames main event match against The Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.
The pre-match talk focused on the issue of Sami Zayn's loyalty to The Bloodline, with Jimmy Uso, in particular, wary of the faction's lone unrelated member. Zayn was influential throughout the match, which was the first men's edition of WarGames to feature the main WWE roster, and his lengthy history with Owens proved to be a fulcrum as the Canadians were involved in the confrontation that led to The Bloodline's victory.
With Owens getting the upper hand on The Bloodline's leader Roman Reigns, Zayn intervened to stop a pinfall on "The Tribal Chief." Owens then engaged with Zayn, who proved his loyalty to Reigns and The Bloodline by helping incapacitate his longtime friend. Zayn then motioned for Uso, who had inadvertently superkicked Zayn earlier in the match, to hit a splash on Owen from the turnbuckle and get the pinfall.
With the Brutes defeated, the rest of The Bloodline welcomed Zayn into the faction with an embrace.
Earlier in the night, the women's WarGames match saw the team led by Bianca Belair claim victory. Belair had enlisted Becky Lynch, Asuka, Alexa Bliss and Mia Yim to her team, against a Damage CTRL-led team that included Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley. Lynch, who was recruited to her team just a day previous, proved invaluable as she hit a leg drop on Ripley from the top of the cage, putting her opponent through a table in the process.
"The Man" then rolled Ripley up for the pin, giving Team Belair the win.
Aside from the WarGames matches, a pair of titles were put on the line Saturday as Ronda Rousey easily defeated Shotzi to retain the SmackDown Women's Championship, while Austin Theory became the youngest United States champion in WWE history when he earned a pinfall on Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat match that also included Bobby Lashley.
In addition, AJ Styles defeated Finn Balor in an entertaining contest between two of the best in-ring entertainers in WWE, with Styles finishing the match by hitting a Phenomenal Forearm on his opponent.
