General Manager Kurt Angle kicked off Monday Night Raw with a huge announcement stating that all of Raw's champions will face all of SmackDown's champions, confirming three new champion versus champion matches for Survivor Series.

On November 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas the following champion versus champion matches will take place at the 31 edition of Survivor Series:

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya
Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. United States Champion Baron Corbin
Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos

This confirms the reports from PWInsider regarding the two Women's Champions Alexa Bliss facing Natalya, and the two Tag-Team champs and Intercontinental and US champs facing off.

This brings the current number of champion versus champion matches to four including the match between Brock Lesnar and Jinder Mahal. The only champion not facing their other brand counterpart at Survivor Series is Enzo Amore because there isn't another champion for him to face.

Angle also announced two separate traditional Survivor Series matches taking place at Survivor Series; one for the women and one for the men. Currently, at the time of this writing, we have no idea who will be in either of the men's or women's teams, for either of the brands.

The 2017 edition of Survivor Series is slated to have six Raw versus SmackDown matches for Survivor Series; surpassing the number of Raw versus SmackDown matches at last year’s Survivor Series and each edition of the now defunct Bragging Rights pay-per-view.

With only Raw versus SmackDown matches announced for the upcoming show, the next few weeks will more than likely lead to run-ins and attacks from various Raw and SmackDown superstars invading other brands.
