The first three matches have been announced for WWE Survivor Series on November 24 in Chicago. As we learned in the last week, they will be doing some Raw vs. Smackdown vs. NXT matches this year instead of just Raw vs. Smackdown matches.
The Raw vs. Smackdown vs. NXT storylines has set two matches involving the three women’s champions and the three tag team champions.
We also learned on Raw that Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship against Rey Mysterio, who didn’t win a match to earn a title shot.
Here’s the lineup:
WWE Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler
Raw Tag Team Champions Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar) vs. Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) vs. NXT Tag Team Champions The Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish)
What else could be on the card?
If they do a match between secondary champions then it would be Raw’s US Champion AJ Styles vs. Smackdown’s Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura vs. NXT’s North American Champion Roderick Strong. All three guys are heels, so it would be a tough match to do in terms of getting the fans into the match.
The Universal Champion Bray Wyatt will likely be in a match. Putting him against NXT Champion Adam Cole is a possibility as top guys on their brand, but with WWE Champion in another match, perhaps Wyatt will face somebody that’s on the Smackdown roster.
I assume we’ll get The Kabuki Warriors vs. Natalya and Charlotte Flair for the Women’s Tag Team Titles since Natalya and Flair beat The Kabuki Warriors non-title on Raw yesterday.
We should learn more by Friday when WWE tapes Smackdown and Raw in Manchester, England.
Survivor Series on takes place on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. ET, on WWE Network.
