This year’s Survivor Series event featured a Traditional Elimination Match for the male roster.
However, there was a slight change, not only was stars from Monday Night RAW and SmackDown featured, but for the first time ever, talent from NXT was featured.
Team RAW featured Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Ricochet, Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre while SmackDown had Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Shorty G, Ali and King Corbin, and NXT involved Tommaso Ciampa, Damian Priest, Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, WALTER.
At Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event, Team SmackDown won the contest. The final three were Reigns, Rollins, and Lee with Reigns edging out Lee in the end to win.
This was the fourth straight year that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had decided to do the brand vs. brand theme for one of the big four events of the year for the company.
Last year’s match in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center saw Team RAW (Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler) beat Team SmackDown (Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, The Miz & Shane McMahon) in a Men’s Elimination Tag Team Match.
WWE will close the year out with the TLC pay-per-view event, which goes down on December 15, 2019 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
