Chaos is on its way to SmackDown LIVE in the form of Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, and Killian Dain.
A vignette hyping the arrival of SAnitY aired during SmackDown LIVE last night, with Young voicing it over and saying the only thing they care about is chaos.
Later in the show, a graphic was shown indicating that Nikki Cross will not be joining her stablemates on SmackDown LIVE.

WWE.com confirms that Young, Wolfe, and Dain are being brought up to SmackDown LIVE without Cross. All three are now listed as members of the SmackDown LIVE roster while Cross remains listed as a member of NXT.
As far as why Cross isn’t joining SmackDown LIVE with SAnitY, Triple H wants to keep her in NXT since he has plans for her with the brand’s women’s division. Not only that, but his long-term plan for her is to join the main roster as a wrestler rather than a valet. There is currently no spot for her wrestling on the main roster, so she needs to continue in NXT.
Cross will be in action at NXT live events from Thursday to Sunday.

SAnitY won the NXT Tag Team Championship from The Authors of Pain in August 2017 and dropped them to The Undisputed Era in November. They were one of the teams that were involved in the Tag Team title match/Dusty Rhodes Classic finals at TakeOver: New Orleans earlier this month, which was won by Undisputed Era when Roderick Strong turned against Pete Dunne.
Dain is in action on tonight’s episode of NXT as he takes on Lars Sullivan in a No Disqualification Match.
