NXT in the brand wars could be a big surprise

With the latest episode of SmackDown Live in the books, the WWE universe has no more stops ahead of Survivor Series. The 900th episode of SmackDown did a great job of hyping the show, and the return of Undertaker and Edge proved to be cherries on the top.

To roundup, the buildup from WWE’s side has been solid and now, it will be up to them to deliver on Sunday night.

And due to the nature of the matches that are booked for Survivor Series, WWE has more than enough opportunity to pull off a surprise or two. Least expected booking decisions have always managed to make the fans happy, and Survivor Series has a long legacy of the same.  

In this slider, we are going to list down some of those twists that could happen at Survivor Series.

#7 Dolph Ziggler gets a spot in the Intercontinental title match

Ziggler cannot be left out of SS

The latest episode of SmackDown saw a shocking move from WWE. They made Dolph Ziggler drop the Intercontinental Championship to The Miz, and now, Miz will go on to face Sami Zayn at Survivor Series. The fans were hyped about the prospect of seeing Zayn and Ziggler in a match, but now those expectations mean nothing.

But WWE could make a major improvement on the storyline if they turn the match into a Triple Threat and add Ziggler. Ziggler still has a title rematch clause in his hand so the addition would make sense as well.

The only problem would be the Raw vs. SmackDown subplot. Zayn will be outnumbered by SmackDown superstars but if WWE is planning to make him the champion, then being outnumbered improves the underdog appeal.
