These surprises could change the complexion of Survivor Series entirely

In a few days, yet another Big Four pay-per-view will be upon us. The final 'major' one this year, and indeed every year since 1987- Survivor Series!

Bear in mind that Survivor Series last year had a marquee match in Brock Lesnar against the returning Goldberg. This year's card seems far less stacked in comparison, and therefore, WWE may need to pull out the big guns to make this show one to remember.

One surefire way to do it is to have debuts at the show. NXT has a stacked roster of talent just waiting to be called up and thrust into the mix. What better platform for them to arrive and create an instant impression than Survivor Series? How cool would that be, if booked right?

Here are five debuts we can see happening at Survivor Series. Let us know in the comments below, what you think of our choices. In case you disagree, let us know.

#5 Hideo Itami

The Japanese Superstar can be a welcome addition to the Cruiserweight Division

Hideo Itami is a superstar who arrived in NXT, a really long time ago indeed. He was even part of the Andre The Giant Battle Royal, two years ago. His call-up should have happened already. Unfortunately, a string of injuries kept him on the shelf, and he remained in developmental.

How is it a debut if he debuted on the main roster already, you rightfully ask? Well, this will be his debut in the Cruiserweight Division.

It is clear at this juncture that the Cruiserweight Division will be built around Enzo Amore.

However, the art of professional wrestling demands competition between two worthy contenders, to tell a compelling story and keep the audience captivated for the entire duration.

Hideo Itami can really bolster the Cruiserweight Division and freshen up the ranks with his lightning quick strikes. If Enzo Amore brings the personality, Itami can bring the in-ring work.

Rumours aplenty have surfaced saying that Hideo Itami may be on his way to the main roster. If so, Survivor Series may be a great time to bring him out.
