The final WWE pay-per-view of the year takes place on Sunday when Survivor Series goes down from Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The second-oldest WWE pay-per-view event, Survivor Series, again will display brand supremacy with top stars of Raw and Smackdown facing off. In the main event, universal champion Roman Reigns will represent Smackdown when he takes on WWE champion Big E from Raw. On the women’s side, Smackdown champion Charlotte Flair will take on Raw champion Becky Lynch. Also, there will be two five-on-five traditional Survivor Series matches, one for the men’s and one for the women’s, to add to this stacked card.
Raw Tag Team Champs RK-Bro Vs. Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Usos – WWE Survivor Series
This match is going to be the hardest to call compared to any other game on this card. RK-Bro is putting on one of the better acts in WWE right now as their mix of comedy and wrestling is the most effective than most of the current promos in WWE so far this year. The Usos are tied to reigns, which has made them more or less bulletproof. This is a tough match to call, but it’s hard to bet against Reigns or the Usos right now; I see Riddle making some mistake in this match, giving the Usos the win.
Winner: The Usos
Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura Vs United States Champion Damian Priest – WWE Survivor Series
Nakamura’s title reign has been forgettable; he has a single title defense (TV or PPV) since winning the belt on Aug 13. Priest has been far more active with defenses of his belt, defending five times in that same stretch. Priest is also in the middle of a character overhaul, as he is turning heel from being a babyface. Since the change of character for Priest, I don’t see WWE going any other way here, so give me Priest.
Winner: Damian Priest
Team Raw (Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Carmella, Zelina Vega) Vs. Team Smackdown (Sasha Banks, Shotzi, Shyna Baszler, Natayla, 1 TBA)
That one TBA could be the wild card in this match for the women’s five-on-five. From a storyline standpoint, it makes sense for Naomi to take the spot as she keeps fighting for opportunities. The Raw side feels a bit stronger, but strength doesn’t matter in the end so much as who benefits from winning. So for me, It would make sense for a storyline perspective to have Naomi. The last woman is standing as it would add an excellent twist to her and Sonya’s storyline.
Winner: Team Smackdown
Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Austin Theory, Bobby Lashley) Vs. Team Smackdown (Drew McIntyre, Xavier Woods, Jeff Hardy, Happy Corbin, 1 TBA)
The five-on-five matches are challenging to predict, especially when one member of a team is not revealed. The secret here may well be McIntyre and Woods on the Smackdown side. Woods as King of the Ring has a good storyline momentum, and McIntryre is positioned as one of the remaining men who could challenge Reigns for the Universal Title. Rollins already has a title shot locked up with Big E in the future, so he doesn’t benefit much from this match. So give me team Smackdown.
Winner: Team Smackdown
Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch
To say Flair isn’t exactly in the best graces of everyone in and outside the locker room in the WWE. It is an understatement at this point. Lynch, unsurprisingly is the woman WWE has thrown everything behind. Since returning from her leave to give birth to her daughter. Also, Reigns is more than likely going to top Big E, and it really sets up for Becky to win this match, so give me Lynch in this one.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Universal Champion Roman Reigns Vs. WWE Champion Big E
Reigns have drawn out the fury of Big E after attacks on New Day’s Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. The Usos had also executed a few episodes on Big E before he got the last word after a six-man tag match, hitting Jey with a Big Ending. And saying there’d be an ICU bed waiting for Reigns in Brooklyn. This, to me, would be an excellent night for Reigns to take the loss as far as story-wise as Reigns wouldn’t lose the title. And Big E would be the perfect guy for Roman to lose to. But I think the Usos get involved somehow and Reigns picks up the win.
Winner: Roman Reigns
