Survivor Series is one of WWE's major pay-per-views. The event showcases the rosters of SmackDown and RAW battle against each other to determine the superior brand. The major attraction of this event is usually the 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series match, where both brands choose 5 stars to compete against each other in an elimination tag team match.

This year's edition of the event will take place on November 21st and will air from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Various Champion vs. Champion matches have been announced for the show. The Universal Champion Roman Reigns will take on the WWE Champion Big E while United States Champion Damian Priest is set to face Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.

The champion vs champion matches at this year's Survivor Series are looking 🔥

With such a stacked card, various unexpected things could happen at the show. Here are 5 possible moments that could steal the show at Survivor Series 2021.

#5.United States Champion vs. Intercontinental Champion match at Survivor Series 2021 ends in a squash

#USChampion @ArcherofInfamy from #WWERaw vs. Intercontinental Champion @ShinsukeN from #SmackDown this Sunday at #SurvivorSeries!And you can bet @rickboogswwe & @PatMcAfeeShow are ready to rock out at @barclayscenter.

Both of WWE's mid-card champions have a hard-hitting move set, making this match a potential fan-friendly bout. However, WWE could book something unexpected at Survivor Series 2021.

Shinsuke Nakamura has held the Intercontinental Title since August but hasn't accomplished anything significant with it. WWE has not given him any serious rivals lately, causing his character to grow a bit stale.

Meanwhile, Damian Priest has been receiving a thunderous push. The former NXT North American Champion was able to defeat major stars like Drew McIntyre and Sheamus during his title reign. Also, we have seen a much more aggressive side of Damian Priest in recent weeks. This side of him could easily squash Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series.

Damian Priest's dominant win over yet another world champion would add significant value to Priest's character. Nakamura's loss could also become the foundation of a heel turn. This character change would surely make fans take him much more seriously and the Intercontinental Title would regain its relevancy.

#4. Alexa Bliss returns to create havoc at WWE Survivor Series 2021

💔💔💔#ExtremeRules @AlexaBliss_WWE

Little Miss Bliss could surprise everyone and make her much-awaited return to WWE at Survivor Series 2021.

Alexa Bliss was last seen at WWE Extreme Rules 2021 where she faced Charlotte Flair for the RAW Women's Championship. After suffering a loss, her sinister doll, Lilly, was torn apart by her opponent. She was seen crying in the middle of the ring while fans sympathetically chanted "Thank you, Lilly!" The moment seemingly ended the gimmick and fans now expect her to return with a new character.

Survivor Series will be a great opportunity for Alexa Bliss to make her return to WWE. She could first assault her former rival Charlotte Flair, who is now drafted to SmackDown. She can then proceed to attack the RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch, making it clear that she wants the RAW Women's title.

It would be a great opportunity for Alexa Bliss to showcase her new character and take revenge on Charlotte Flair as well. Attacking Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch could cement her character as a babyface, which would lead to a huge pop from the crowd at the Barclays Center.

#3. Finn Balor emerges as the perfect underdog at WWE Survivor Series 2021

Finn Balor is undoubtedly one of the most-loved wrestlers currently working in WWE. Unfortunately, his push looks underwhelming as of now. This had previously happened to him in 2019, so he moved back to NXT rather than becoming a mid-carder on the main roster.

To add to that, Finn Balor's alter-ego, 'The Demon' faced his first-ever loss on the main roster at WWE Extreme Rules 2021. Since then, fans have been wondering if the Prince will ever become a main event star again. Survivor Series is the perfect opportunity to restore his legitimacy.

Balor is set to represent RAW in the 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series match. If he can become the sole survivor and earn a victory for his brand, his momentum will be boosted to a major extent. WWE has made stars like Dolph Ziggler look tougher using the traditional 5-on-5 match, so there's a fair chance of it happening again.

Finn Balor pinning someone like Drew McIntyre to seal the deal for RAW will certainly be an elevating moment for him and his fans. After winning the match for RAW at Survivor Series 2021, he can easily get involved in rivalries with major heels like Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley.

#2. Big E manages to defy the odds at WWE Survivor Series 2021

What will happen when these two champions collide? Find out THIS SUNDAY when #WWEChampion @WWEBigE battles #UniversalChampion @WWERomanReigns at #SurvivorSeries, streaming LIVE at 8E/5P on @peacockTV in the U.S. and @WWENetwork everywhere else! @HeymanHustle

The match between Big E and Roman Reigns has the highest probability of main-eventing WWE Survivor Series 2021. The Universal Champion Roman Reigns is currently the biggest star in WWE and the company makes sure that he never loses any match clean. However, WWE may cause shock waves by letting Big E pick up a clean win at Survivor Series.

At this time, the WWE Champion is looking weaker than the Universal Champion, which wasn't necessarily the case last year when Drew McIntyre battled Roman Reigns at Survivor Series. Many fans still don't take Big E seriously as the company's top champion. The legitimacy of Big E's title reign will be solidified if he can defeat The Tribal Chief at the event.

Big E's monumental win will also mark a significant win for the New Day over the Bloodline, increasing tensions between the SmackDown group. Big E defeating The Tribal Chief will surely steal the show.

#1. WWE Survivor Series 2021 gets electrified as The Rock makes a surprise appearance

Wrestlemania 28. Sun Life Stadium. Thank U @WWE Universe & Team Bring It for an unforgettable night. #RockVsCena

At Survivor Series 2021, WWE will be celebrating 25 years of the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, The Rock. Although it hasn't been announced by WWE, the Hollywood star could make a surprise appearance at the event.

As he has previously done before, The Great One could appear and cut a promo where he talks about how far WWE has come. He could go on and thank the fans for loving him for 25 years.

The Rock's latest movie, Red Notice, is now in theaters so him promoting the movie at WWE's top pay-per-view could considerably increase ticket sales.

After his promo is done, Roman Reigns' entrance music could hit and the fans could see the much-awaited confrontation between The Great One and The Tribal Chief. Even a brief stare-down between these stars will send chills through the fans, possibly hinting at a future match.

Will The Rock make his most-awaited return to WWE? Which brand will reign supreme at the event? All questions will be answered this Sunday at WWE Survivor Series 2021.
