The Survivor Series Preview: Can McIntyre Tame The Big Dog?

It is Survivor Series week, and the WWE has already announced six scheduled matches. This Survivor Series will be like no other as the event will be taking place in front of the WWE ThunderDome with no fans in attendance.


This PPV is one of the WWE’s flagship events, and it also just happens to be the 34th Survivor Series. The WWE will also be celebrating 30 Years of The Undertaker, and they are advertising it as “The Undertaker’s Final Farewell.” Will it be his final show? Who knows. This event places brand vs. brand, so Smackdown vs. Raw.

The Main Event is Raw’s Drew McIntyre vs. Smackdown’s Roman Reigns. Randy Orton would have faced Reigns if he would have won his match against Drew McIntyre on Raw. We have a new main event now for Sunday’s event.

The WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn will be going against an old foe WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley. These two had a memorable feud back in 2018. 

Raw’s Women WWE Champion Asuka will be facing Smackdonwn’s, Sasha Banks. Sasha has had it rough the past couple of weeks as she has been attacked by Carmella while still worrying about her former tag-team partner Bayley and now she is facing one of the best wrestlers on the entire roster.

WWE Smackdown Tag-Team Champions The Street Profits are facing the WWE Raw Tag-Team Champions The New Day. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston of The New Day have never wrestled with each other, which will be an intriguing matchup.

The other two matches set for right now are both 5-on-5 matches; on the men’s side, Team Smackdown is almost full, and it will feature a team led by Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, King Corbin, Jey Uso, and another name still to be determined. They will be facing Team Raw, led by AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, Sheamus, Matt Riddle, and Keith Lee. 

The Women’s 5-on-5 match has Raw featuring Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, and Lana. They will be going against Smackdown’s Bianca Barr, Liv Morgan, Ruby Rose, and two more still to be determined.

Survivor Series Pre-Show starts at 6:00 PM Eastern Time on Sunday, with the Survivor Series event starting at 7:00 PM Eastern Time. Survivor Series will air on the WWE Network and other PPV providers.
