Other Survivor Series Thoughts
First of all, it will be a miracle if every person who competed in the two WarGames matches at NXT TakeOver makes it through the weekend unscathed.
Second, WWE has 18 championships across all of its brands and only three titles are being defended during the entire weekend. This is somewhat risky but it could pay off in the end.
Every match at Survivor Series has the potential to be great but it all comes down to how everything is booked and who ends up surviving at the end of each bout.
The Chicago crowd was on fire for TakeOver and hopefully, it will bring the same energy to Sunday’s event. Even one disappointing result could lead to the fans turning on the show.
With CM Punk now back in the wrestling world as a member of the WWE Backstage panel, it will be interesting to see how many times his hometown crowd chants his name. If the action is good, people will be too busy chanting for the people in the ring.
NXT being on USA means it is now viewed as a legitimate third brand and is no longer only considered WWE’s developmental league. Looking at things from every angle, there is a good chance Triple H and his army leave Survivor Series with the lion’s share of victories.
Mysterio vs. Lesnar might be the biggest attraction for this show due to the personal nature of their feud. The title might be on the line but for the Master of the 619, this is about getting revenge for his son, Dominic.
If Survivor Series is anywhere close to being as good as TakeOver was, this could be one of the best weekends of wrestling in 2019.
