With the brand split back in place, Survivor Series is all set to be the stage for a brand war between, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live. Though the current brand split is still in its infancy, WWE announcing three separate traditional elimination matches, for the pay-per-view, has managed to evoke interest throughout the WWE Universe.
This also opens the door for cross-brand promotions, where superstars of one brand could come to the other, just to increase the hostility. Calling it an invasion, would be premature, considering that the brand split happened only recently.
However, this would be a good idea to build up Survivor Series. With that said, here is a look at some of the superstars from SmackDown that could show up on Monday Night Raw:
#5 Braun Strowman
Why: Dominance. Braun Strowman has been booked strongly, ever since he broke up with the Wyatt Family. He has been on a rampage on Raw and recently, WWE stepped up his relevance by making him part of the Raw’s Survivor Series team.
Strowman secured a dominating win in a Battle royal, to earn the spot and sending him over to SmackDown would mean complete destruction.
How: As Mick Foley is a babyface manager, Strowman, going to SmackDown with Mick’s consent, would not make much sense. However, if Stephanie sends Strowman to SmackDown, without Mick knowing, it could establish two things.
First; Stephanie backing Strowman would make him more worthy of our hate. Secondly, WWE exposes some friction between Stephanie and Mick, which could be another subplot for Survivor Series.
