We’ve been hearing the hype for months, and now it’s less than a week away–at Survivor Series this Sunday, Goldberg will return to the ring to take on the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. But before their official clash at Sunday’s pay-per-view, the pair will meet each other face-to-face on tonight’s Raw. What will Goldberg and Lesnar have to say to each other ahead of their match? How many seconds will pass before their meeting devolves into violence? How many poor members of event security will be destroyed before they satisfy their thirst for battle?
But Goldberg and Lesnar aren’t the only ones set for Sunday’s show, which otherwise features a card built entirely around the battle between the newly-split Raw and SmackDown rosters. Three traditional Survivor Series elimination matches will pit the best men, women, and tag teams against each other, and now that those teams are set, you can expect a whole lot of last minute attempts to get everybody on the same page.
Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, commissioner and GM of SmackDown, respectively, are expected to appear on tonight’s Raw, heating up the brand rivalry even further. With Shane set to hop into the ring himself against Raw’s very best, what will he have to say to Mick Foley and Stephanie?
Meanwhile, two titles are up for grabs between the brands, with Sami Zayn challenging Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship that now resides on SmackDown. The Brian Kendrick will be defending the Cruiserweight Championship with even higher stakes–if Kalisto captures it, the entire division will be moving to Tuesday nights on SmackDown. Expect both Raw stars to address the possibilities ahead of their matches this weekend.
All that on tonight’s Raw from the Keybank Center in Buffalo, NY, broadcast as always on the USA Network at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central. We’ll have live coverage as it happens tonight, so stay tuned.
