Triple H invaded Smackdown with his roster and said, “This is our army, this is our ring and at Survivor Series, know what you’re getting into, we have now fired the first shot. Raw, Smackdown, let’s see what you got. Just remember one thing, WE ARE NXT.” 

On Friday Night Smackdown, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Road Dogg, produces of NXT, drove a tank to the ring and an all-out brawl between all three brands occurred. 

On November 23rd at 7 PM, the rosters of Monday Night Raw, Friday Night Smackdown, and NXT will fight for brand supremacy at Survivor Series. Here are all the matches fans will be anticipating to watch come Sunday. 

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be facing Rey Mysterio in a “No Holds Barred” match. Brock attacked Rey’s son Dominic weeks ago and in retaliation, Mysterio beatdown Lesnar with a pipe during a surprise attack. Brock;s manager, Paul Heyman, put it best when he said, “This Sunday, you will either witness a miracle or a massacre.” 

WWE Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt will have his first defense against Daniel Bryan. Wyatt has been trying to revive the “YES Movement’ but Bryan refuses to. Will these matchups bring Bryan back to his senses and realize the fans have been behind him since day one? 

For NXT, these are the matches where superstars will be in action. 

A triple threat to determine who is the top woman in WWE. “The Man” Becky Lynch will represent Raw and claimed she is the “baddest women in the planet” during an intense face off with NXT’s Shayna Baszler. Both Becky Lynch and Bayley invaded NXT, with Lynch calling out Baszler and Bayley hitting Baszler with a chair. Shayna has returned the favor, invading both Raw and Smackdown and laying out Bayley. 

US champion AJ Styles looks to prove he is phenomenal when he faces the Intercontinental Champion, Japanese sensation Shinsuke Nakamura, and North American champion Roderick Strong. Strong represents NXT and looks to bring this matchup to the next level in what come be the match of the night. 

NXT’s Undisputed Era will look to shock the system when they face “The Viking Raiders” and “The New Day’. All tag team champions will wage war to determine who is the best tag team in WWE. 

NXT Champion Adam Cole will have to wait to see who is opponent will be. Killian Dane, Pete Dunn and Damian Priest will be settling a dispute at NXT Wargames on Saturday where the winner will become the number one contender. 

Last but not least, the 5 v 5 traditional tag match. Seth Rollins is the captain of Raw and plans to burn it down alongside Kevin Owens, Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre, and Ricochet. Team Smackdown is led by the “Big Dog” Roman Reigns. He’s joined by Baron Corbin, Chad Gable, Ali, and Braun Strowman. Team NXT will be led by either Matt Riddle or Keith Lee. 

For the women, Charlotte Flair teams with Natalya, women’s tag team champions Kabuki Warriors and Sarah Logan to represent Raw. Sasha banks leads the army of Carmella, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans and Nikki Cross for SmackDown. Rhea Ripley is a part of team NXT and the rest of her team will be revealed Sunday night before the match begins. 

With all the brawls, brand invasions, and intense promos happening in the past weeks, this Survivor Series looks to be the best one yet. 

This is the most unpredictable PPV WWE has had in years and one question that will and needs to be answered come Sunday night.
