Welcome to Survivor Series 2017, where Raw and SmackDown go head-to-head in the most bitter rivalry in years!
Team Raw Vs. Team SmackDown Live. Team Angle Vs. Team McMahon. This massive five-on-five match will determine which brand is better, with Shane McMahon looking to prove SD Live as the A-show, while Angle is fighting for his job. Shane led an invasion of Raw a month ago, which led to a response from Raw on the final episode of SmackDown Live. Shane and Angle have been at each others throats for weeks and now Triple H has inserted himself into the match, adding even more drama to the proceedings, which were already at boiling point. This match is sure to have repercussions for the many months ahead.
Every other match on the show tonight, minus one, is also to be Raw Vs. SmackDown, and none is bigger than Brock Lesnar Vs. AJ Styles. The Champion of SmackDown Live and the WWE takes on the Champion of Raw and the Universe. This match changed drastically once Jinder Mahal was removed and Styles inserted in, which has led to a huge increase in anticipation. What was once a relative snorefest, became a must-see match that has the potential to tear the house down.
The Shield will also take to the ring tonight to defend Raw’s honour against The New Day. This will be The Shield’s first PPV match as a unit since reforming, and they take on SmackDown’s resident funnymen. This match could very well steal the show and will be one of the most anticipated bouts of the night. Beyond that, The Miz faces Baron Corbin, The Bar take-on The Uso’s, Alexa Bliss battles Charlotte and Team Raw’s Women will face Team SmackDown’s ladies.
The Survivor Series Kick-Off Show will begin at 5 PM ET, yes a two-hour pre-show, with Enzo Amore defending his Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto, Matt Hardy will face Elias, and Breezango takes-on Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. So it’s a stacked card tonight and the action will soon get underway. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and converse with your fellow fans. Enjoy the show!
