5 bold predictions for Survivor Series 2017
The one night of the year where Raw and SmackDown Live go head-to-head in competitive action is almost upon us.
Last year’s Survivor Series was full of shocks, but what lies in store for the 2017 event? Will Kurt Angle lose his job as Raw General Manager? Who will be the fifth member of the SmackDown Live women’s team? Will Jinder Mahal be involved at all?
Of all the pay-per-views WWE has produced so far in 2017, this one is probably the most exciting of the lot and certainly the most unpredictable.
In this article, we stick our necks on the line to bring you five bold predictions of what might occur in Houston, Texas on Sunday.
#1 Jason Jordan costs Kurt Angle his job
It just goes to show how stacked the WWE roster is these days that Jason Jordan, Bray Wyatt, Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens who have been mainstays of Raw and SmackDown Live over the last few months, aren’t even on the Survivor Series card.
JJ was initially due to be on Team Raw for the 5-on-5 elimination match at the event but, courtesy of an attack from Bray Wyatt, he was declared unfit to compete by Kurt Angle was replaced by Triple H, who gave him a Pedigree for his troubles.
The Jordan-Angle storyline hasn’t gone down well with fans and it feels like it’s only a matter of time before the former American Alpha member turns on his ‘biological father’ and reveals he made the whole thing up to get better opportunities in WWE – something he has succeeded in doing.
Perhaps Jordan could cost Team Raw at Survivor Series, in turn making Angle lose his job as General Manager, as revenge for being excluded from the team. This could also set up a future match between the two, possibly at the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania.
