Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and you know what that means? It’s time for Survivor Series! What? Did you think we were going to talk about turkey and family? The WWE PPV is one of the biggest events of the year, as it is the only time–other than Money in the Bank–where Raw and Smackdown superstars face each other in the ring.
We’ll see champions fighting champions with Brock Lesnar taking on AJ Styles and Ronda Rousey battling Becky Lynch. As of this writing, there will be no titles on the line as Survivor Series is all about brand supremacy. Is Raw or Smackdown the better show? Well, Smackdown is, no matter who wins.
This event is coming to the WWE Network and PPV on Sunday, November 18. The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California will host Survivor Series, which starts at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT, and while a pre-show hasn’t been announced yet, we’re assuming a two-hour long Kickoff Show will open up the PPV.
The card is slowly coming together, and with the card come rumors from industry insiders, fan theories, and dream concepts that will never come to fruition. We scoured the internet for all the most plausible rumors that have people talking and found that there’s nothing too shocking planned for Survivor Series yet.
Below are the latest rumors for Survivor Series. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes or these get confirmed prior to the PPV.
Possible Tag Team Match
Newly crowned Raw Tag Team Champions, AOP, will more than likely take on Smackdown’s Tag Team Champions, The Bar. The match hasn’t been announced yet, but considering all the other champions are booked in Survivor Series matches, this seems like a no brainer. However, it may be relegated to the Kickoff Show.
Full Men’s Survivor Series Teams
According to PW Insider, the Raw vs. Smackdown Men’s match will contain Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Dolph Ziggler on Raw’s team and Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, The Miz, and Randy Orton on Smackdown’s team. Shane McMahon and Baron Corbin will work in opposite corners as managers for the event.
Shane Heel Turn
Shane McMahon will be using his Crown Jewel World Cup win as part of a heel turn, using the “Best in the World” monicker. This is all part of a long-time plan on Smackdown, according to Wrestling Observer.
