You have to fill in the lineups. With less than two weeks to go before Survivor Series, it’s time to get ready for one of the biggest matches of the year. That would be the men’s elimination match, featuring a Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live team of five men each, plus a captain each. Since there isn’t a lot of time left, those teams are starting to come together and someone knows a little earlier than usual.

According to, the lineup for the men’s Survivor Series elimination match will see a Monday Night Raw team of Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler vs. a SmackDown Live team of Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, the Miz and Randy Orton. This week on Monday Night Raw, McIntyre, Ziggler and Strowman were confirmed for the match.

How did we get those three names confirmed?

Raw and SmackDown Survivor Series captains revealed: Raw, Nov. 5, 2018

Opinion: That’s a pretty solid sounding main event. The important part of these matches is to offer pairings that fans want to see and this would accomplish such a thing. There are a lot of very talented people on these rosters and you could see a lot of them surviving until the end. If nothing else, they could use this match to go into some feuds down the road, which is always a successful use of this show.

Which of these teams sounds better? Who do you want to see win? Let us know in the comments below.
