WWE Survivor Series 2016: Matches, card, predictions, PPV time and date
November 18, 2016 - WWE
“Unique” is maybe a best approach to report WWE’s 30th annual Survivor Series pay-per-view, that facilities no heavyweight pretension defenses and a six-match label with 3 normal Survivor Series rejecting matches that seemed to be on their approach of being phased out by a company.
Instead, 2016 Survivor Series is holding on a new definition for WWE on Sunday as a association pits a Raw and SmackDown Live shows opposite any other in what is being billed as a uncover where “fantasy crusade usually got real.” OK, then.
The whole thing is set to go down on Sunday, Nov. 20 during 7 p.m. ET live from a Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
Let’s take a demeanour during what’s in store for a uncover and make some predictions on any match.
Cruiserweight Championship — The Brian Kendrick (c) vs. Kalisto: This is a tough one. On a one hand, WWE is set to entrance a new cruiserweight uncover on WWE Network called “205 Live” (in anxiety to a division’s weight limit). It will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 29 and atmosphere live during 10 p.m., immediately after SmackDown Live ends on USA Network, with SmackDown’s Mauro Ranallo as a play-by-play man. For these reasons and more, it would make clarity for WWE to take a cruiserweights off of Monday Night Raw and put them on SmackDown, that suffers from a blank of talent. On a other hand, WWE would be pulling a cruiserweights off a longer (three hours vs. two) show, holding a multiplication divided from a incomparable assembly and force-feeding a lot of high-flying movement on a singular night.
Even yet we was of a opinion that a cruiserweights should have started out on SmackDown, we cruise they’re best left on Raw during this point. Plus, a pretension change would be a second in dual months with 3 champions holding a belt in such a brief duration of time. I’m meditative this is a misdirection stipulation, and if not, afterwards WWE will make an even worse mistake after in a show. Prediction: The Brian Kendrick retains a title
Intercontinental Championship — The Miz (c) vs. Sami Zayn: The disproportionate rosters of Raw and SmackDown meant WWE could do some changeable here during Survivor Series with a cruiserweights going to SmackDown and a intercontinental pretension relocating to Raw. While a former would be of small consequence, a latter would be a large mistake. In perplexing to build adult SmackDown, WWE already saddled it with a shoal pool of talent, comparison wrestlers and lower-level women’s performers. The final thing it needs to do is take divided a second-most prestigious belt in a company. Raw is flourishing usually excellent with a new concept and United States titles.One would cruise WWE took a belt off Dolph Ziggler and put it on Miz (just as Ziggler was unequivocally starting to roll) in sequence for Miz (the heel) to dump it to Zayn. My theory is Ziggler interferes and costs Zayn a match, gripping a belt on SmackDown so he can continue his prohibited argument with Miz over a title. If not, WWE will have a universal, U.S., intercontinental and more-prestigious women’s pretension all on Raw with SmackDown’s usually suggestive belt being a universe title. Prediction: The Miz retains a pretension around DQ
Tag Team 10-on-10 Elimination Match — Team Raw (The New Day, Luke Gallows Karl Anderson, Sheamus Cesaro, Enzo Amore Big Cass, The Shining Stars) vs. Team SmackDown (Health Slater Rhyno, The Usos, American Alpha, The Hype Bros, Breezango): Talk about usually perplexing to fit whole rosters into a pay-per-view card. WWE will have 10 superstars competing in this one in a initial of 3 biased rejecting matches. Shining Stars would be an easy group to drop out initial with Hype Bros and Breezango following in some order. In-fighting will lead to Sheamus Cesaro disappearing, and Slater Rhyno should shortly follow. What this will finish adult being is a prominence mark for American Alpha to discharge a integrate big-time Raw teams before eventually being degraded by maybe New Day. It would be a warn to see SmackDown take this one. Prediction: Team Raw wins
Women’s 5-on-5 Elimination Match — Team Raw (Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Nia Jax, Alicia Fox) vs. Team SmackDown (Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, Alexa Bliss, Naomi, Carmella): On initial blush, this compare looks one-sided, yet when we cruise Fox and how feeble Bayley has been booked, a altogether talent indeed favors SmackDown. There are copiousness of ways this can spin with infighting between Nikki and Carmella or Charlotte and Sasha. When we primarily looked during a card, a suspicion was that SmackDown would win here, yet with Charlotte and Sasha and a widespread Nia Jax on one side, that unequivocally would be absurd. Prediction: Team Raw wins
Men’s 5-on-5 Elimination Match — Team Raw (Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman) vs. Team SmackDown (AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Shane McMahon): With dual champions, a many renouned categorical eventer (Rollins) and a biggest aspirant (Strowman), one would cruise Raw is an easy favorite here … and we theory it is. But WWE needs to chuck a bone to SmackDown, and unless it’s formulation to give a sister uncover a cruiserweight multiplication and tab group and women’s compare wins yet a intercontinental pretension changing hands, this is a best mark to give SmackDown a push. Prediction: Team SmackDown wins
Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg: It’s flattering available that everybody forgets these dual being booed out of a locus during WrestleMania XX, yet we digress. Considering how frequency Lesnar is used and that Goldberg has not been in a WWE ring given 2004, this still has a special compare feel. Goldberg’s lapse is like Sting’s was final year, yet that consisted of dual brief stints over 7 months. Sting went 2-2 in his return, losing both pay-per-view matches purify around pinfall. Considering it was Goldberg who got that WrestleMania XX win and there’s positively 0 advantage in putting him over Lesnar, who stays employed by WWE, it usually creates clarity for Lesnar to get a victory. The usually doubt is either a compare plays out purify or formula in another unsatisfactory finish like Lesnar-Orton did during SummerSlam. Prediction: Brock Lesnar wins
