8 predictions for the elimination order of the men's 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series match
WWE’s top two brands, RAW and SmackDown Live, will collide in direct head-to-head competition tonight, and after NXT Takeover: War Games II, it is the main roster’s turn to steal the show.
The main attraction of this edition of Survivor Series is the traditional 5-on-5 match between the top male superstars of the main roster. Though the build-up for this match has been quite underwhelming, the presence of superstars like Rey Mysterio, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre, The Best in the World Shane McMahon, and Samoa Joe, guarantees an epic match.
The 2017 match between the two brands was one of the most lacklustre matches in Survivor Series history, and WWE Creative would be keen to make up for its mistakes of 2017.
This year Baron Corbin is the captain of Team RAW which comprises Dolph Ziggler, Finn Balor, Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman, and Bobby Lashley. Team SmackDown Live comprises Shane McMahon, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, and is led by The Miz.
While all the superstars are in top form heading into this match, here’s what the elimination order of the match should be.
#1 Bobby Lashley - eliminated by Jeff Hardy
Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush have formed one of the most irritating duos on WWE TV, and have the potential to cross all limits on the flagship show if booked properly. But looking at their recent altercation with Elias, it does not look like WWE sees Lashley as a big draw.
After 5-6 minutes of all superstars tagging themselves in the match, Bobby Lashley could take the pin after getting hit with a Swanton Bomb at the hands of Jeff Hardy.
