WWE Survivor Series Lineup Update – Three Smackdown Wrestlers Added to Elimination Matches, Triple Threat on Raw

The next WWE pay-per-view is Survivor Series on Sunday, November 22. The show will take place at the WWE ThunderDome in the Amway Center in Orlando.

It was confirmed by WWE on Friday morning that The Undertaker will be making a “Final Farewell” appearance at Survivor Series. We don’t know what The Undertaker is doing other than an appearance, but we know he’s going to be there.

On last night’s edition of Smackdown, King Corbin beat Rey Mysterio (thanks to distractions outside the ring) and Seth Rollins beat Otis thanks to a distraction from Murphy. That means Rollins and Corbin will join Jey Uso and Kevin Owens on Team Smackdown with one more spot available for the Smackdown team. Jey beat Owens in the main event after a low blow that the referee didn’t see, so the team already has issues.

There was also one addition to the Smackdown women’s team when Ruby Riott made Zelina Vega tap out in a submission match after Natalya had already put Vega in the Sharpshooter. Natalya let go of her hold to see what Ruby was doing, so when Vega tapped out, Riott was given the win.

There are three more spots on the women’s Smackdown team and if I had to guess, I assume Bayley will get one of the spots because she just lost a rematch for the Smackdown Women’s Title to Sasha Banks, so it would make sense to have Bayley on the Smackdown team. Natalya has now lost two triple threat matches for a spot on the team, so I assume she’ll lose another match next week too.

The final Raw men’s team member will be either Jeff Hardy, Elias or Riddle (with no Matt) because they’re facing eachother in a triple threat match on Raw this Monday.

It really could be any of those three names. I think it should be Riddle, but I can see wanting to push Hardy as well.

Here’s what the lineup looks like right now.

WWE Universal ChampionRoman Reigns vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton

Smackdown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks vs. Raw Women’s Champion Asuka

5-on-5 Men’s Elimination Tag Team Match: Team Smackdown (Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin, Seth Rollins and one more superstar) vs. Team Raw(AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Sheamus, Braun Strowman and one more superstar)
