The 10 best WWE matches of November 2018
November was WWE's best month yet in terms of the sheer output of match quality. With a Survivor Series pay per view that lived up to its impressive card and a TakeOver the night before that, there was little room for doubt that this would be a great month in the ring. We saw no less than three "match of the year" candidates this month and a fourth that could have gotten there were it not for a screwy ending, and even that screwy ending added a lot to the atmosphere of the match and the Road to WrestleMania soon to come.
Let's take a look back at a month of excellence and rank the top 10 matches we saw.
#10 Braun Strowman, Elias, and Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Bobby Lashley (Raw, November 19th)
The night after Survivor Series, we got a callback to the pay per view with a six-man tag team elimination match. Taking up the entire first hour of Raw that night, it was a hard-hitting and intense battle. Elias and Finn Balor were eliminated early on, leaving Braun Strowman at a three on one disadvantage that he wasn't able to overcome.
The combined power of Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and Baron Corbin ultimately stopped his momentum and instead of eliminating him the easy way, they did it the hard way, injuring his elbow on the steel steps. It was a convenient way to write Braun off while he recovers from a legitimate (but far less severe injury).
I'm personally not a fan of this heel authority figure faction and think that it's a waste of Drew McIntyre's time in particular, but this was a fun showing that was decidedly better than what they did with the faction the following week!
