5 Big Matches WWE Should Have Booked For Survivor Series 2017
October 26, 2017 - WWE
WWE Raw and SmackDown will go head-to-head during Survivor Series in a conflict of a brands, that is, during best, a controversial decision.
Already announced so distant are Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal, a hitch pitting a red brand’s Universal Champion opposite a blue brand’s WWE Champion, as good as a array of matches featuring a best Raw has to offer holding on SmackDown’s finest. Here is a stream label for a pay-per-view:
- Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown (Women)
- Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown (Men)
- Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos
- Raw’s Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. SmackDown’s US Champion Baron Corbin
- Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya
- Raw’s Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. SmackDown’s WWE Champion Jinder Mahal
WWE is going all out with a “battle for code supremacy,” with Shane McMahon heading a whole SmackDown roster on what can usually be described as an advance during this week’s part of Raw. Of course, a wish within WWE is that a unpredictability of a cross-brand argument will be adequate to keeps fan meddlesome after Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt were unexpected sidelined, that expected forced a association to reshuffle artistic plans.
But as noted progressing this week, a Survivor Series conflict of a brands judgment is a rather old-fashioned one that justification suggests will destroy once again since pay-per-views built around Raw vs. SmackDown have a prolonged story of sketch really poorly.
Alas, WWE seems unfailing to omit that story and repeat a mistake of engagement a pay-per-view centered around “bragging rights” for a winning brand, something that will eventually accomplish zero in a prolonged run. WWE has already committed to a Raw vs. SmackDown format of Survivor Series, and since a association is so unaffected in a integrity to book a conflict for code supremacy, it’s blank out on a array of potentially good matches that expected would have finished a improved pursuit of attracting fans to a WWE Network.
Here are 5 matches WWE should have requisitioned during Survivor Series 2017.
Team Shane Vs. Team Owens
Team Shane: Shane McMahon, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode
Team Owens: Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Rusev and Dolph Ziggler
Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens has been one of WWE’s best rivalries, though SmackDown’s roller-coaster ratings haven’t always reflected that.
It once seemed like a virtual certainty that this adversary would strech a consummate when Team Owens battled Team Shane during Survivor Series, a hitch that has actually been rumored for several weeks, though it’s probable that Owens’ remarkable deficiency from WWE, and a detriment of Wyatt and Reigns, may have forced a remarkable change of plans. Still, a proof behind putting Shane in a ring for a third time this year would be to transparent his large income of some-more than $2 million and potentially put some-more eyeballs on the SmackDown product, that is something that a McMahons have proven able of doing in a past.
Owens himself has also proven to be a good draw when operative with a right opponent, and his creatively resolved loyalty with Sami Zayn, total with his argument with Shane, had given a blue code a tip argument it desperately needed. Thus, it positively would have most some-more clarity for Shane and Owens to captain hostile teams during Survivor Series (with Shane recruiting a star-studded babyface lineup that would do conflict with a blue brand’s biggest villains) than it does for Shane, who had been requisitioned as one of WWE’s biggest babyfaces, to unexpected caring so most about winning a conflict for code supremacy.
Throwing in Shane with tip guys like Orton, Nakamura, Styles and Roode, this compare would have featured several of WWE’s biggest draws and indeed have a good storyline behind it as well. This hitch was a no-brainer, maybe until, for whatever reason, WWE motionless to retreat march and concentration on a conflict of a brands.
The Four Horsewomen Vs. The Four Horsewomen
Recent reports advise WWE is still meddlesome in doing a conflict between a possess Four Horsewomen and a Four Horsewomen of MMA, and a mixture were positively there to make this occur during Survivor Series.
WWE usually signed Shayna Baszler, who was a runner-up in a initial Mae Young Classic, that was reportedly a big viewership strike on a WWE Network. That demonstrates a sketch energy of WWE’s womanlike performers and shows because not bringing in Ronda Rousey to group with Baszler and her associate Four Horsewomen of MMA to take on Bayley, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch can usually be described as a missed opportunity.
With Rousey reportedly training for a pro wrestling career and Triple H creation it transparent that WWE wants to pointer her, it would have been a vital manoeuvre to move Rousey in and have her as a focal indicate of a argument with WWE’s Four Horsewomen, that evidence suggests is comprised of 4 of a biggest womanlike stars in a company. When we put Rousey, one of a biggest draws in MMA history, in WWE, where she’d clearly be a ideal fit, her sketch energy would positively expostulate fans to a WWE Network to see what she’d do a initial time she ever competed in a WWE ring.
Rousey is arguably a most famous womanlike contestant in a world, and given a growth of WWE’s womanlike audience, bringing her in for Survivor Series should have been an impossibly easy decision. Instead, WWE reportedly might have selected to scrap this argument completely.
