It keeps growing. We are now less than three weeks away from Survivor Series and the show is really starting to crank up. You can see most of the card from here and that can make for some interesting moments. Above all else, the show will be about the battle for brand supremacy, which will include battles between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. Now we know another major name in the match.
One of the biggest parts of the Survivor Series card will be the Monday Night Raw vs. SmackDown traditional Survivor Series matches. This year’s edition is made a little bit more interesting by the recent Draft, which shook up the rosters less than a month ago. As a result, the rosters are still settling in and some of these matches might be a little different than usual. That seems to be the case with another name added.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Braun Strowman qualified for the Monday Night Raw Survivor Series team. Strowman defeated Keith Lee and Sheamus, both of whom had already qualified, in a triple threat match suggested by fellow team member AJ Styles. That leaves one spot available on the team, while SmackDown still has three more spots left to fill.
It was a heck of a way to get there. Check out how the match went down:
Opinion: This is as good and logical of an idea as you can have and that’s all it needed to be. What matters the most here is getting things ready for the pay per view in a hurry as there are all kinds of ways to go with the major matches. Strowman is the kind of guy who almost has to be there and if we are in luck we should be in for another good monster performance from him this year.
