There’s more to the card. WWE has rarely been as busy as they have been lately with one big show or event after another. With so many things going on at once, it can be kind of difficult to keep track of everything that is going on. Last week it was Crown Jewel and the ensuing chaos, then this week and next it is the European tour and then we have Survivor Series at the end of the month. The build to Survivor Series has begun but there are a lot of things left to do, such as setting up the card. While they have not been announced yet, we now have an idea of what to expect.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, there are at least two more matches expected to be added to this month’s Survivor Series card. In addition to the already announced triple threat matches between champions, another triple threat match between United States Champion AJ Styles, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong may be added. However, since they are all heels, there is a chance that one of them, if not more, could lose their titles before we get to Survivor Series.
The second match expected to be added is a grudge match between Bobby Lashley and Rusev. The two of them have been feuding for several weeks due to Lashley having an affair with Rusev’s wife Lana. Rusev has only started to fight back against Lashley in recent weeks, including the two of them being on opposite sides of the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match at Crown Jewel. The two of them got into another fight on this week’s Monday Night Raw with Ricochet and Randy Orton also getting involved.
Both of these make sense. Check out the participants in action recently:
Opinion: The triple threat match makes a lot of sense but I’m a little bit confused by the Rusev vs. Lashley match. This week’s setup on Monday Night Raw would seem to have been the perfect setup for an elimination tag. Then again, I can understand why that would not be the case given that they just had the ten man tag at Crown Jewel. Maybe they are going there anyway, but it won’t feel the same as what we got before. At least they have something going on here and it isn’t like the singles version would be that bad. That being said, if there isn’t an elimination tag there, where will it be on the card?
Which of these matches sounds better? Who do you see winning them? Let us know in the comments below.
