SmackDown star Aliyah suffered an unfortunate moment on live television on Friday night when she appeared to throw up in the ring following a match.
It was a mixed night for new SmackDown star Aliyah as she made her televised debut on the blue brand in Norfolk, Virginia.
WWE announced the teams for Survivor Series on November 6th, but now less than two weeks away from the spectacular, teams across the board have been thrown into disarray.
The SmackDown women’s team was originally made up of Sasha Banks, Shayna Baszler, Natalya, Shotzi, and Aliyah. While the inclusion of the recently drafted star was seen as something of a surprise as she had yet to make her debut on SmackDown, it also presented an opportunity for the young Superstar to make her mark on the big stage.
However, after the latest episode of SmackDown, that opportunity is no more. In the opening match on November 12th, Aliyah teamed with Sasha Banks and Naomi to take on Natalya, Shotzi, and Shayna Baszler. The six women had got into a huge brawl as the show began with Sonya Deville attempting to introduce Team SmackDown.
As the match flew towards the finish, Natalya locked in the Sharpshooter on the debutant Aliyah before trying to grab the ropes for extra leverage. Instead, she was met by Naomi who thwarted her attempt to gain an advantage, leaving Aliyah to pin the former SmackDown Women’s Champion.
After the match, still excited at picking up the win, Aliyah was confronted by Deville backstage. The official calmly said that she had been advised to remove the former NXT Superstar from the team.
However, video footage has emerged of Aliyah immediately after the match before Deville could deliver the bad news. While celebrating in the ring with Naomi and Sasha Banks, the young star appeared to vomit into her hand.

There is no word yet as to who will be the 5th star on SmackDown’s women’s team while Sami Zayn will be feeling sick as a parrot as well after being booted from the blue brand’s men’s team.
