On the 9th November episode of Raw, Nia Jax threw Mandy Rose out of the ring, and she’d land hard on her shoulder after getting tangled in the ropes. While many people blamed Jax, who has a reputation for injuring people, it seemed to be a genuine accident with nobody to blame.
As neither WWE nor Rose made any announcement throughout the week, it was thought she was OK. Unfortunately, it turns out that isn’t the case, and on last night’s Raw, WWE did a storyline to explain why she would miss the Survivor Series. They did this by having Jax and Shayna Baszler attacking Rose at the start of a six-woman tag match, and Baszler would stamp Rose’s taped shoulder into the steel steps.
Later in the show, Dana Brooke would be interviewed about Rose’s injury, and was herself attacked,this time by Reckoning/Mia Yim. With both Rose (legitimately) and Brooke (kayfabe) being injured, WWE announced that Lacey Evans and Peyton Royce would be taking their places in the Team Raw lineup at Survivor Series.
Rose’s injury is the second one to change the women’s Raw vs. SmackDown match, as Chelsea Green was supposed to be on Team SmackDown but broke her wrist during her SmackDown debut. As of now, the match is Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Lana, Lacey Evans, and Peyton Royce vs. Bianca Belair, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and two more competitors yet to be announced.
