They’re fighting back. It is Survivor Series season and that means that things are going to start getting interesting in a hurry around WWE. This year is even more interesting than some others as for the first time ever, NXT is going to be part of the annual battle of the brands at Survivor Series. The addition has set off a big story in WWE as NXT has invaded both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown in the last week. NXT has gotten the upper hand on both shows, but that does not mean that things are done. It could be interesting to see what happened if the tables were turned, which is what happened on Wednesday.
It was a big start. Check out the Monday Night Raw invasion of NXT:
This week’s NXT opened with all three members of the OC attacking the Undisputed Era backstage at Full Sail University. The OC went on to stand in the middle of the ring until Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Matt Riddle answered their challenge, leading to a six man tag later in the night. The match ended in a no contest when Finn Balor and Adam Cole both interfered in the match. OC leader and US Champion AJ Styles is expected to be involved in a triple threat match at Survivor Series along with Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong.
And a bigger finish. Check out how the show ended:
Opinion: I’m liking this story more and more every single week and NXT was very smart to open the show with the invasion. It immediately set the tone for everything that they were trying to do that night and it was rather effective. The idea of tying all three shows together is going to cause some problems for AEW and that is probably one of the biggest reasons for everything that WWE is doing at the moment. It offers some interesting and fresh matches and if WWE does it right, we could be in for a very fun Survivor Series weekend indeed.
