WWE has a lot planned for Survivor Series, and they set the stage for a few possible surprises. One of them seems very likely, but it has not been confirmed.
Rhea Ripley lost an NXT Women’s Title match to Io Shirai this week on NXT. That match seemed to write her out of the brand. It’s unclear what else Rhea Ripley can do in NXT at this point, and many are expecting her main roster call-up.
Ripley was not place in a Survivor Series team this week on SmackDown. The company placed Natalya and Bayley in the two remaining spots. There is always a chance that the plan can still change.
There is currently a very strong rumor floating around that Rhea Ripley might find herself in a Survivor Series match regardless of how the event is currently booked. There are plenty of ways that the company can achieve this.
We’ll wait patiently and keep our eyes open. Never count out WWE when it comes to surprising fans, even if some of them kind of see it coming already.
