Like last year, this year’s Survivor Series will have a brand warfare team, with all the champions from each brand facing off against each other, and two Survivor Series tag matches taking place. The biggest match, in this battle, will be the one between the men from Raw and Smackdown and both general managers have already begun assembling their troops.
Angle seemed to have a team ready to announce this week, before Shane and the Smackdown brand ambushed the whole show, while Randy Orton became the first Smackdown member to qualify this week by defeating Sami Zayn in Smackdown’s main event.
With all of the champions tied up in matches with each other, this match is a nice chance for several superstars from each brand to get a chance to perform for us on the big stage.
A quick note before the list begins, I have left AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Kane and Braun Strowman off their lists because I’m hoping we get to see them involved with matches against each other.
Raw: Roman Reigns
Providing he is well, there is no way The Big Dog is being left off the Survivor Series card. With his Shield team-mates being tied up in a match against The Usos, Reigns has no clear opponent heading into the show, which means making him a member of team Raw their best option.
It also makes perfect sense from a storyline perspective, with Angle now having something of a bond with The Shield and Reigns being one of the biggest threats on the Raw roster.
