Survivor Series 2018 Report Card
Traditional Survivor Series 5 on 5 Women's Elimination Tag Team Match: Team Raw (Bayley, Mickie James, Nia Jax, Sasha Banks, & Tamina Snuka) vs Team SmackDown Live (Asuka, Carmella, Mandy Rose, Naomi, & Sonya Deville)
Result: Team Raw's women got the victory after Nia Jax eliminated Asuka with a Samoan Drop to be the sole survivor for Team Raw.
Analysis: It was surprising to see Naomi be eliminated so early since she was the most successful woman on the team. However, it at the very least presented Tamina as a dominant force before being quickly eliminated by Carmella. Carmella's dance break as always was wonderful. It was also interesting to see Bayley & Carmella's exchanges due to their time spent together as Baymella back in NXT.
Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville looked great. Sonya Deville almost scored an elimination before Mandy Rose stole it from her. Mandy Rose also worked perfectly as the one who angered everybody in the match. Sonya Deville looked strong since she was not pinned or submitted and was eliminated as a result of a double count out.
Mickie James worked perfectly as she put over Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville. Bayley & Sasha Banks also looked good as they both scored an elimination. Bayley was protected as she was also eliminated alongside Sonya Deville in the double count out.
The exchange between Asuka & Sasha Banks was one of the highlights of the match as Asuka looked like the vicious killer that she was in NXT for a change causing me to feel a bit of hope for Asuka's chances of success in WWE.
WWE took advantage of the heat on Nia Jax due to her causing Becky Lynch's injury. Nia Jax turned on fan-favorite Sasha Banks to cause her elimination so that she did not have to share the glory with Sasha Banks.
She also took advantage of the fact that Asuka was already down because she had just submitted Nia Jax with the Asuka Lock. It would have been nice to see Asuka put up a little bit more of a fight but she did good and at the very least Nia Jax looked strong.
