WWE Survivor Series 2019 | Men’s Survivor Series Match | Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT
Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here and we are closing in on a pretty damn crazy weekend of wrestling. The long talked about NXT main roster invasion has finally happened over the past few weeks, and we’ve been led to a truly unique couple of shows. Rounding out the weekend, WWE Survivor Series 2019 is upon us, and it’s set to be a very unique show to say the very least. It’s a three way war, with Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT! Plus, three very interesting world title matches will be taking place as well.
Regardless of what you think of the build, the card itself looks incredible. It should be a surreal experience seeing these bouts come to head. And I’ll be doing a match by match preview for the whole show, so let’s get to it!
Traditional WWE Survivor Series Elimination Match: Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown vs. Team NXT
Team Raw is captained by Seth Rollins. He’s joined by a pretty star-studded cast in Randy Orton, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens. For the blue brand, Team SmackDown has Roman Reigns as their captain, and he is backed up by Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman, Shorty G, Mustafa Ali and (unofficially) their mascot, Da Big Dawg, who may or may not reveal himself to secretly be Elias.
For NXT, once again, we have zero names mentioned for their team. Just a buncha vacants across the board. It’s also not as easy picking people from WarGames to be in this, given that all of Undisputed Era are already busy this night. Tomasso Ciampa is probably a lock. You could theoretically put all of his WarGames team in there, plus Matt Riddle. Lee and Riddle seem like very likely candidates if nothing else. Finn Balor would be a fine wildcard pick for them but he’s a little too mysterious right now to be allying with folks in a big tag match at the moment, in my estimation. The last thing they should wanna do is normalize Finn Balor, he’s got a good thing going as an enigma.
What’s interesting about this match is that they’ve made a point to have Triple H, NXT’s promoter for lack of a better term, try to coax both Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens to his side. This seems to foreshadow to me that a betrayal is likely. At the very least, they want us thinking about this. If I had to guess… it might not be either Rollins or Owens but someone we’d least expect. I’m not really certain, but I think I’ll say that it helps secure NXT a victory.
WWE Survivor Series 2019 will be airing this Saturday on the WWE Network at 7 PM Eastern Time, 6 Central. There will also be a two hour pre-show leading into the event. The show emanates from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer, and I will be giving you a live play by play of the show as it happens. Stay tuned!
