WWE Survivor Series matches
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
This David vs Goliath face-off has been building up since Lesnar attacked Mysterio and his son Dominick. Cain Velasquez, the former two-time UFC heavyweight champion, attempted to get revenge for Mysterio to no avail. Brock Lesnar not only beat up Dominick again, but he also defeated Velazquez at Crown Jewel in a dominant fashion. Mysterio beat up Lesnar with a chair after that match and attacked him again with a pipe on the next RAW. He then challenged Brock Lesnar for a WWE Championship match which is scheduled for Survivor Series.
Women’s Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion
Becky Lynch (Raw) vs. Bayley (SmackDown) vs. Shayna Baszler (NXT)
This three-way women’s champion vs. champion vs. champion Triple threat match between the three brand champions will be an intriguing watch. All three participants are brilliantly talented and have their own jar of brutality in store for this match. Former MMA fighter Shayna Baszler is a brutal competitor and is in her second reign as the NXT Women’s Champion. She is the first woman to hold the title twice. Becky Lynch has taken over WWE as ‘The Man’ battling through rigged odds. Bayley’s new ruthless heel persona is also winning favor with the fans. It is a fresh take on the bubbly, child-friendly Bayley character and fans are supporting it unabashedly.
This match will be held a night away from Shayna Baszler’s WarGames showdown at NXT TakeOver.
Men’s Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion
AJ Styles (U.S.) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura (Intercontinental) vs. Roderick Strong (North American)
These three men are sure to put up one hell of a show. Talented in the extreme, these men are a guarantee for a match viewers will look back upon fondly. AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura have locked horns in the past. Those matches were always entertaining and with enough technical in-ring skills to satisfy the puritans. It will be interesting what The Undisputed Era member Roderick Strong will bring to the equation.
Men’s Tag Team Champions
The Viking Raiders (Raw) vs. The New Day (SmackDown) vs. Undisputed Era (NXT)
