WWE Survivor Series 2019: 5 reasons why NXT must win the battle of brand supremacy
For the first time in history, WWE Survivor Series will witness NXT competing against RAW and SmackDown in the battle of brand supremacy. The Black and Gold brand has invaded its respective counterparts in the last few weeks and the members of its roster have picked important victories along the way.
On Sunday, we will see NXT Champions locking horns with the title holders of the Red and the Blue brand inside the squared circle.
Although beating both RAW and SmackDown will not be an easy task, it is important for NXT to emerge as the strongest brand at the upcoming PPV. A win for them will finally explain why they are not second to the so-called ‘main roster’.
In this article, we take a look at five reasons why NXT must win at Survivor Series 2019.
#5 Recognition as an equal brand
It’s been only a couple of months since WWE NXT made its debut on the USA Network. Although this is the first time we will see the Black and Gold brand compete for the brand supremacy at Survivor Series, they have already established themselves as a part of the ‘main roster’.
For years, we have looked at NXT as a developmental brand for WWE. Even though it’s true to a certain extent, there is a huge difference in the attitude of the roster since the show started airing on Wednesday nights.
Allowing NXT to pick up the highest number of victories at Survivor Series is only going to establish the Black and Golden brand as an equal rival of RAW and SmackDown. It would be unfair to build them up as the third brand of WWE and then deny the chance to shine at the pay-per-view.
