Survivor Series is the second longest running pay-per-view event in history (behind WWE’s own WrestleMania) and is considered one of the company’s ‘Big Five’ events, along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, and Money in the Bank.
This year’s edition of Survivor Series will be the 35th and will, as has been the case for the past few years, centre on the rivalry between WWE’s flagship shows, Raw and SmackDown.
The match card is headlined by two top-tier ‘Champion v Champion’ clashes, as Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch revives her rivalry with SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, while WWE Champion and Raw Representative Big E will face the ‘Head of the Table’, WWE Universal Champion and SmackDown representative Roman Reigns.
Lynch and Flair have been fierce rivals for years, with ‘The Man’ revealing that she is looking forward to putting ‘The Queen’ in her place.
“Charlotte Flair has an aura about her, other people on the roster have this respect or even fear for her,” said Lynch. “But not me. I’ve come through the ranks alongside her and I know – and more importantly, she knows – that I am every bit as good as her. In fact, I’m ‘Big Time Becks’… I’m better! And I’ll prove it at Survivor Series.”
Big E and Reigns do not have the same kind of history, but the former will be looking to continue his impressive rise to prominence by overcoming the ‘Head of the Table’. The WWE Champion will need to look out for Reigns’s sidekicks from ‘The Bloodline’, The Usos, but Big E could call on his buddies from The New Day, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, to have his back in that regard.
The card will also feature 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination matches for both men and women, with the brand’s respective teams looking to become the first to make five pinfalls or submissions against their opponents.
