Was this Vince Mcmahon's plan all along?

Survivor Series is one of the big four PPV events of the year. But merely a few days back, this years edition of this marquee event was on its way to being a damp squib. The match line-up of Survivor Series was marred by matches which failed to generate any kind of positive response from the WWE Universe.

Matches like Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss and Jinder Mahal vs. Brock Lesnar sparked an intense debate within the wrestling community. But the entire world witnessed firsthand that anything can happen in the WWE at any given point in time.

What a humungous difference a few days can make!

The new Survivor Series match card has been completely revamped by the WWE. The WWE Universe will now witness at least four larger than life matches at Survivor Series. From being ridiculed and trolled on by the IWC, Survivor Series is well on it's way to being the best PPV of the year. It makes one wonder, was this Vince Mcmahon's plan all along?

The new Survivor Series card is miles ahead than the original one. But let's hope that the PPV lives up to all the hype. Here are five reasons why this refurbished Survivor Series event is way better than what the WWE initially wanted it to be.

#1. Dream match outta nowhere

AJ and Brock might steal the show.

AJ Styles is without any shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. The Phenomenal One was expected to participate in the men's Team Raw vs. Team Smackdown match at Survivor Series.

But AJ Styles' hard work and dedication finally paid off. He delivered an earth-shattering 'Phenomenal Forearm' to Jinder Mahal and was crowned the WWE Champion for the second time in his illustrious career. AJ Styles is once again at the pinnacle of Smackdown and rightly so. AJ Styles historic victory also ensured that the WWE avoided a major disaster in the form of Jinder Mahal v/s Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series.


Jinder Mahal was an experimental and transitional WWE Champion at best. WWE wanted to grab a bigger market share in the Indian market and 'The Modern Day Maharaja' was the perfect vehicle for them to do so. Jinder Mahal tried his level best to be the best champ that he possibly could be, but it just wasn't enough. He failed to deliver inside the squared circle every single time, and his match against Brock Lesnar would have been another gigantic disappointment.

The WWE fans will now get to witness a dream match come true. Brock Lesnar colliding with AJ Styles is a never before, never again match that nobody expected to see inside a WWE ring. And if booked right by the WWE, this match might find itself in contention for being the match of the year.

Let's hope that these two incredible performers steal the show at Survivor Series by delivering a stupendous 5-star match.
