Welcome one and all to Ringside News’ live results coverage for WWE Survivor Series 2019.
Tonight is one of the four biggest nights of the year in WWE, and Survivor Series 2019 is guaranteed to be bigger than all others before it. Of course, that’s because, for the first time ever, the PPV won’t just be Raw Vs. SmackDown, NXT will also be in the battle. That means we’ve seen the three brands duke it out numerous times over the past month, with NXT being the obvious fan favourites. NXT has also gotten the majority of the wins on TV, which leads us to assume they aren’t going to be winning much tonight.
So, of course, we have our traditional Survivor Series matches tonight. Which include Team Raw Vs. Team SmackDown Vs. Team NXT for both men and women. Outside of those, we have Becky Lynch (Raw) Vs. Shayna Baszler (NXT) Vs. Bayley (SmackDown), The Viking Raiders (Raw) vs. The New Day (SmackDown) vs. Undisputed Era (NXT), and AJ Styles (Raw U.S. Champion) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura (SmackDown Intercontinental Champion) vs. Roderick Strong (NXT North American Champion) And those are all of the brand Vs. brand Vs. brand matches.
The rest of the card is stacked as well though, with the all three main titles being contended. WWE Champion Brock Lesnar faces Rey Mysterio in a no-holds-barred match, NXT Champion Adam Cole faces Pete Dunne, and WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt faces Daniel Bryan. On top of that we have Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush facing Angel Garza on the Kick-Off Show.
So yeah, it’s a super stacked card tonight, making Survivor Series really feel like a big show. I can’t think of too many other PPV cards that feel like there’s no toilet break matches, so tonight should be a show of the year contender. And that’s our preview of it. Remember to follow along here, on the Ringside News app, or on Twitter and Instagram. Enjoy the show!
The Kick-Off Show panel is Coach, Charly Caruso, Booker T, and David Otunga. They quickly discuss how big of a deal Survivor Series is and say it’s the kind of night that can make someone’s career.
We see a video package for the Women’s Triple Threat match bewteen Shayna Baszler, Becky Lynch, and Bayley, then join JBL and Sam Roberts on the ramp. Roberts says that Baszler is the favourite but JBL disagrees, saying Becky Lynch will always be the favourite, especially given Shayna wrestled a WarGames match last night. Roberts says that doesn’t matter, Becky Lynch is clinging to relevance and Bayley isn’t even the most dominant woman on SmackDown. JBL says he’s wrong.
Next up is a video for Brock Lesnar Vs. Rey Mysterio. Paul Heyman is interviewed backstage and he calls Brock the conqueror of the WWE Universe. He says tonight is miracle or massacre. Heyman says that, after tonight, he assures us we will never see Rey Mysterio again. Booker says Rey doesn’t have much of a chance and says he has run out of idea’s because he threw the first punch. Otunga corrects him and says Brock threw the first punch.
It seems the Cruiserweight Championship match has been changed; it’s now Lio Rush Vs. Akira Tozawa Vs. Kalisto. We see highlights of NXT WarGames last night. JBL and Sam Roberts say that all of NXT’s roster is at a disadvantage tonight, having gone through war yesterday. Roberts also says that Seth Rollins is the worst team Captain in history, to which JBL disagrees.
We’re back with the panel and Shawn Michaels has joined the panel, he’ll be announcing the five NXT members of the men’s elimination match. Coach asks HBK what the key to winning is and he says “survive”. He says these NXT stars are ready to take the stage, they’re hungry and they have the desire. Michaels announces that five members of Team NXT and it consists of Keith Lee, Tommaso Ciampa, Walter, Matt Riddle, and Damian Priest. He says that’s a group that touches upon everything and will be hard to beat.
Adam Cole joins Cathy Kelly backstage and she asks if he’s 100% ready. Cole says of course he isn’t; he wrestled Daniel Bryan on SmackDown, Seth Rollins on Raw, a ladder match on NXT, and a WarGames match. But he’s still Adam Cole baybay. He says Pete Dunne is great, one of the best Champions of the modern era, but he’s going to show the world why the Undisputed Era is the best in the business. Back with the panel, Shawn Michaels says it’s hard not to like Adam Cole but Pete Dunne is real scrappy.
Bayley cuts a promo backstage, in which she says Shayna Baszler is great but she’s in a division that she built. Bayley says she will continue to prove people wrong and show them that she’s not an afterthought. Back with the panel, Charly says Bayley has always had this in her. Otunga says Becky is the favourite but Baszler is the wild card and she has no fear. Booker agrees, as does Caruso.

The panel is interrupted by Sami Zayn. He’s annoyed because they had just started discussing the match between Shinsuke Nakamura, Roderick Strong, and AJ Styles and says they weren’t showing Nakamura respect. Coach says Sami is smart and he must have respect for the other two in the match, to which he says of course he does. They’re tremendous competitors but they aren’t artists.
