Bengaluru, Nov 20: We are just a few hours away from the Survivor Series PPV. Since it is going to be the 30th anniversary of the grand PPV, WWE is leaving no stones unmoved to make it a huge success.
The tickets have already been sold out weeks ago since the main event was announced. Brock Lesnar Vs Goldberg is a “dream come true” for any wrestling fans.
But, apart from this big match, there will be a few switches between the two brands at or after the PPV. As we have heard from WWE, two cross-brand matches will be contested at the dual brand PPV.
The Miz will be defending his Intercontinental title against Sami Zayn who belongs to Raw. Ziggler threw an open challenge and Zayn banked on the opportunity. But, later Miz dethroned Ziggler and grabbed the IC title.
On the other hand, WWE Cruiserweight championship will be defended against Kalisto from Smackdown.
This match too will be contested with the stipulation that if Kalisto wins then the entire Cruiserweight division will be moved to Smackdown. The light-weight division is now an exclusive property of Monday Night Raw.
Now, the rumor mill suggests that both of these matches will see new winners and hence the titles will be switching brands.
Sami Zayn is an incredibly popular superstar and hence the creative is thinking of crowning him with the IC title. If he wins then the title will come along to the Raw brand, inevitably.
In turn, the Cruiserweight division will move to the blue brand as proposed by Daniel Bryan. Kalisto is likely to get the win and become the face of the division. This switch between the two brands might do a favor.
The United States title is already on Raw and the addition of the prestigious IC title with a strong champion like Sami Zayn will be a great boost to the show.
Cruiserweight division will be a great addition to the Smackdown roster, as well. It is called the “land of opportunity” and what better way to put over the fresh talents in a platform, like this?
