To be fair, it had been a whole day. The build towards this year’s Survivor Series has been one of the wildest rides in recent memory. Over the last two weeks, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live have been assembling their teams for the three elimination matches but none of the lineups seem to stick. We’re now done with the final show before the pay per view and even more things were changed.

This week’s SmackDown Live saw changes to all three Survivor Series teams on the blue side. Some of these were due to injuries, some were due to people being moved to other matches and some were due to people being added to the match in the first place. Therefore, the lineups for all three teams have changed. Here are all three lineups after the changes that took place:

Men’s Match
Daniel Bryan was removed and replaced by Jeff Hardy

The Miz (captain), Shane McMahon, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio

Women’s Match
Charlotte was removed and put into a singles match. The lineup currently only has four members

Naomi, Sonya Deville, Asuka, Carmella, TBA

Tag Team Match
Sanity, the Good Brothers and the Colons were added

Usos (captains), New Day, Sanity, the Good Brothers, the Colons

Here’s how the three tag teams were added:

Opinion: Can we please wrap up these teams already? The rosters keep moving in and out so much that you can barely keep up with what’s going on. The matches aren’t exactly barn burners in the first place and I don’t know how much better things are going to get with the changes. It’s not like they’re terrible, but at the same time I could go for a match to build towards instead of wondering what changes will take place every day.

Which team sounds best? Who will take the final women’s spot? Let us know in the comments below.
