WWE Survivor Series 2016 match card: List of confirmed matches for the upcoming PPV
The official build to Survivor Series started last night on Raw after Hell In A Cell. Smackdown Live did start the build after No Mercy much earlier this month, but given that they had time to fill, the build up till now has been slower, and they’ve been filling out the weeks with the World title storyline and more.
However, it is expected that the full team formations should begin from tomorrow for the blue brand. As of tonight, this is the updated Survivor Series match card:
1)Team RAW(Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, & TBA) vs. Team Smackdown(TBA) – 5 on 5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match
2)Team RAW(Charlotte, Nia Jax, Bayley, TBA, & TBA) vs. Team Smackdown(Nikki Bella, TBA) – 5 on 5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination match
3)Team RAW(The New Day, TBA) vs. Team Smackdown(Heath Slater & Rhyno, The Hype Bros, TBA) – 5 on 5 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination match
4)Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg – Singles Match
The card is likely to be far more updated tomorrow. It is expected that Seth Rollins will be the 5th member of Team Raw in the elimination match, while Sasha Banks and Dana Brooke will be the final two members of the women’s Raw team.
Also, in team Raw tag team, The Club and Enzo & Cass are said to be locked, while the remaining two spots is a toss up between The Golden Truth, The Shining Stars, and Sami Zayn & Neville.
For Team Smackdown Live, John Cena and Randy Orton were both removed from being advertised for Survivor Series, so that is an indication that they won’t be part of the event. Randy Orton’s wife is said to be giving birth around that period; so he probably won't make it.
Cena is currently on a hiatus, filming the second season of American Grit and is not expected back until the end of the year. The Team Smackdown locks are said to be AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, and Bray Wyatt, with Dolph Ziggler and The Miz being most likely for the next two spots, and Baron Corbin having an outside chance.
The Smackdown Women’s team is expected to fill the remaining 4 spots with Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, and Naomi, along with an outside possibility of Eva Marie. The Team Smackdown Tag Team is expected to have American Alpha and The Usos (who are both locked). The final spot is expected to either go to The Vaudevillains or The Ascension.
