So who’s excited for/watching Survivor Series then? I might re-watch last night’s madness before.
Obviously the hugely stupid thing is that’s all about “supremacy” rather than titles, but there’s a good chance of some big Mania angle starting tonight
here’s yer card:
Enzo Amore © vs. Kalisto Singles match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
The only title match of the night is on the pre-show of course, and it seems, is the only match there despite it being TWO HOURS long?
Enzo’s a wee gobshite, but it’s making him very easy to book. Can picture Kallisto outclassing him but Enzo stealing it.
Intercontinental Champion The Miz (with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas) vs. United States Champion Baron Corbin
These lads have had some fun twitter back and forths, which apparently constitutes a build these days. It’s also a heel vs heel match which will be odd, though Miz is super over these days so should be fine. Miztourage to help the IC Champ win.
Team Raw (Alicia Fox, Nia Jax, Asuka, Sasha Banks, and Bayley) vs. Team SmackDown (Becky Lynch, Carmella, Naomi, Tamina, and Natalya) 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination match
Hard to predict with these matches really, last year Raw’s women won and… if we’re going on who has the superior roster, probably should again? Maybe they’ll switch it up, whatever, it doesn’t really matter as long as they get a bit of time to build.
Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair Non-title champion vs. champion singles match
I doubt they’ll put two women’s matches in a row (this one will be later I reckon) but that’s just the order I’ve c&p’d. This has the potential to be a great wee match, stake-less or not. A quick google suggests these two haven’t had a bout since the 2014 NXT women’s (Diva’s, lol) tournament, both of whom (esp Bliss) have improved ten-fold since then. I reckon both will be into putting on a show here and could go either way, I like Charlotte to keep her good will vibe going.
The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins) vs. The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) Interbrand six-man tag team match
This will be weird but it will also be super-over so fuck it. The New Day proved in their Usos feud they can go BIG when called upon, so this should be a fun, spot-heavy match. I’d be very surprised if Shield lose mind.
Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso) Non-title champion vs. champion tag team match
I want to be mean about this match but the truth is everyone here and their respective teams have had GREAT 2017’s so fuck it, this could be great. Another Heel vs Heel match mind, but I think Usos might take this (probably to balance the scoreline if nothing else)
Team Raw (Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Finn Bálor, Samoa Joe, and Triple H) vs. Team SmackDown (Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Bobby Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, and John Cena) 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination match
This could/should be an even bigger enjoyable spot-heavy bollocks than last year, it makes zero sense as a match but fucking hell, look at that list of names, this could be amazing (and with a potential Owens/Zayn interference…)
Universal Champion Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) vs. WWE Champion AJ Styles Non-title champion vs. champion singles match
Well, on paper, this is a dream match, but it just depends on if Lesnar can be bothered (he will win anyway so why not?) Lol at no Jinder on the card, could see him interfering…
