With the news that NXT Takeover will feature a double ring steel cage War Games match, WWE is going to have their work cut out for them if they want Survivor Series to be the best show they produce that weekend.
Prior to WWE announcing this past weekend’s Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens Hell in a Cell match, it’s been rumored for some time that one of the headline matches of Survivor Series would feature Team Shane vs. Team Owens.
According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live, this match is still planned and we’ve got new details on who will be comprising the teams. While it’s a no brainer that Sami Zayn will be fighting alongside Owens, Alvarez reports that AJ Styles will be joining Team Shane. No word yet if the teams will feature 4 or 5 competitors.
Finn Balor challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship is also expected at Survivor Series, which does not bode well for Bray Wyatt/Sister Abigail’s chances at next weekend’s TLC PPV.
