They get the trophy. Survivor Series has come and gone and that means that things are going to change a bit going forward in WWE. Over the last few weeks, one of the main focal points of WWE television has been the Battle For Brand Supremacy between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. That time has come and gone, and now we know who gets to have the bragging rights.
The main focal point of Survivor Series was the battle between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown, with a series of champion vs. champion matches as well as a men and women’s Survivor Series match. As usual, the show was built around seeing which show would get the most wins throughout the night and ultimately win the battle. Now the show is over and we have a new winner.
Monday Night Raw won the Battle For Brand Supremacy at Survivor Series by a final score of 4-3. SmackDown won two out of the three Champion vs. Champion matches, with Monday Night Raw only winning the United States vs. Intercontinental Title match. Monday Night Raw picked up the rest of the wins, including a Kickoff Show battle royal. There was no trophy presentation for the winner.
It was a big night. Check out some of the battles that took place:
Opinion: This is about what you had to expect and at least it wasn’t a one sided battle. As usual, the competition was out of reach by the final match but it’s not like this year was as intense as last year’s version was and that’s ok. What we got was good enough for a focal point to the show, and with Undertaker’s big farewell as the special moment of the show, this worked out perfectly fine.
What did you think of the competition? Will the win matter for either show? Let us know in the comments below.
