2016 WWE Survivor Series Predictions

20161025_survivorseries_keyart-238dca53c9d23f175795748cd0ab727fFirst, I’m going on a rant so excuse me for just a moment…It has to be said, before we even get to the predictions, that I am extremely disappointed with some decisions made for this pay per view, while I can understand the need to try and impress the fans on one of their big four pay per views of the year, what I am seeing is not inspiring me with any conference here.

For starters, whoever came up with the idea of having (follow me on this) the WWE Universal Championship, the WWE World Championship, the WWE United States Championship, the Smackdown’s Woman’s Championship, the Raw’s Woman’s Championship, the Smackdown’s Tag Team Championships and the Raw’s Tag Team Championships tied up in the traditional Survivor Series elimination matches, they are officially fucking morons.

I mean are you fucking kidding me, seven fucking titles tied up in just three matches and only two fucking title defence’s, what a fucking joke, sure you have the Intercontinental Championship challenge and a Cruiserweight Championship but officially seven championships not defended is some straight up bullshit, even if they just chose a few.

And their main event – Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg – is a fucking disaster waiting to happen, oh I’m sorry their only other match at WrestleMania fucking twenty didn’t exactly leave the WWE universe wanting more as it was voted one of the worst matches in history and that’s saying something considering the current path the company is on and the matches their spitting out.

In fact, I am so unimpressed with both of these fucking idiots and care so little for the outcome of this match, I would rather sit through a match between Donald Trump and Justin fucking Bieber who anyone who knows me can attest to I cannot stand these fuckwits and think and both should be shot.

Of course with Goldberg being one up on Lesnar, the WWE seem like it just wants to shove more of these two in our faces with a report I found…

REPORT…

It is rumoured that the two will face off at ‘Survivor Series’ although WWE has also discussed a clash at ‘WrestleMania 33′ as well.

At this time, it seems more likely that WWE goes the ‘Survivor Series’ route but their creative team is already planning on big roles for both superstars for their biggest annual event, and the biggest event in pro wrestling, ‘WrestleMania’.

The current thinking is that Goldberg has a 1-0 record over Lesnar and ‘Survivor Series’ seems like an opportunity for Lesnar to even their score at 1-1, which would leave the opportunity for a 3rd and final match, a rubber match, for the two.

WWE may slate that match for ‘Royal Rumble’ but they also could hold off on the final showdown to go down at ‘WrestleMania 33′.

In a scenario that sees the Goldberg/Lesnar rivalry play out to completion before ‘WrestleMania 33′, WWE is looking at options for both superstars to have their own big matches at WWE’s premier event.

WWE is still dreaming of a Lesnar/Rock match, although it is unlikely due to Rock’s movie schedule and commitments.

End Of Report…

Yay! something to look forward to…NOT, I swear the creative team just could not give a shit about entertaining the fans or the reputation of the pay per view, I mean this event gave us the elimination chamber for the first time, it is the only pay per view in history that every title changed hands back in 2002.

It’s one of the big four throughout the year and they are barely using it to its full potential, basically using it to further feuds already happening on each brand, for example at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs next month Dean Ambrose is challenging A.J Styles for the WWE World Championship who wants to put money on that they turn on each other whilst meant to be on the same team.

And they’re not the only ones, Rollins/Owens, Jericho practically challenging Reigns on Raw for the U.S Championship this event is solely for the purpose of furthering these story lines than giving us great matches.

It’s stupid, it’s predictable, it’s fucking WWE, so with this little rant over let’s get on with some predictions…

20161026_match_survivorseries_goldbergbrock_2k-77ab1cb06956f526f26eb7826b72ca4aBrock Lesnar vs. Goldberg

After 12 years, Goldberg will return to a WWE ring for a Mega Match against Brock Lesnar, turning the WWE Universe’s fantasy warfare into hard-hitting reality. The battlefield of choice? Survivor Series, live Sunday, Nov. 20, on WWE Network.

Goldberg’s path to the ring went from pie-in-the-sky hypothetical to signed and sealed over a matter of weeks, as Paul Heyman responded to the former World Heavyweight Champion’s noncommittal SportsCenter interview with a challenge on behalf of The Beast Incarnate. Goldberg, Heyman explained, was not just a mirror image of Brock throughout the Monday Night War, but he holds the distinction of a 1-0 record against The Conqueror. This, of course, is something Heyman could not abide, especially given Goldberg’s casual dismissing of Lesnar in the lead-up to the release of WWE 2K17, where both are featured Superstars (Lesnar is the cover athlete; Goldberg a downloadable exclusive).

After more than 12 years away from the ring, Goldberg returns to WWE to face Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Will The Beast Incarnate take The Icon to Suplex City? Watch fantasy warfare become reality Sunday, Nov. 20, live on WWE Network.

Even so, Heyman must have been surprised when Goldberg took him up on his offer, declaring The Beast to be “last” on his infamous hit list, with the time and place confirmed one week later on WWE’s official Twitter account. Now, at WWE’s fall classic, Goldberg will either join the ranks of the conquered, or forever be known as The One Who Beat the One in 23-1.

Prediction: like I care on this one but will pick Lesnar

20161108_match_survivorseries_sd_5on5_2-9194a13e3adc92545a11e17f83797acaTeam Raw vs. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match

Raw vs. SmackDown LIVE. Only one show can survive.

The friendly competition between Team Red and Team Blue turns physical on Sunday, Nov. 20, when a five-Superstar squadron of Raw’s male Superstars take on a corps of SmackDown LIVE’s competitors in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match.

After accepting SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan’s challenge to pit the shows’ rosters against each other in traditional Survivor Series format, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley responded by naming WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, United States Champion Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho to their team. Braun Strowman then won a Battle Royal on Raw to become the fourth member of Team Raw. Seth Rollins was later added as the squad’s final member, thanks to “assurances” made to The Architect by Stephanie McMahon.

WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, United States Champion Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho and Braun Strowman clash in Raw’s main event, less than two weeks before they stand united against SmackDown LIVE at Survivor Series.

SmackDown LIVE named WWE World Champion AJ Styles and his perennial challenger Dean Ambrose, as well as Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton, whom The Eater of Worlds appears to have assimilated into his Family. Baron Corbin had initially been slotted as the fifth man, but after suffering an injury against a returning Kalisto, The Lone Wolf was replaced by none other than Team Blue Commissioner Shane McMahon, making his in-ring return for the first time since WrestleMania 32. Shane-O-Mac also named cult hero James Ellsworth as SmackDown LIVE’s official “mascot” heading into Survivor Series.

Prediction: SmackDown to win

20161101_match_survivorseries_sd_women_3-75e0b2a2a0f8674d604deeb8c11dab95Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match

Bragging rights will be on the line when Raw and SmackDown LIVE’s Women’s divisions go head-to-head in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match at the 30th annual Survivor Series.

A hallmark of WWE’s fall classic, the Traditional Elimination Match can only end when all members of one team are eliminated. Elimination can occur by pinfall, submission, disqualification or count-out, and Superstars must leave the ringside area after they have been eliminated.

Team Raw is captained by Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and also features Flair’s bitter rival, Sasha Banks, plus Bayley, Nia Jax and Alicia Fox. Unity may be impossible to achieve, but at least Charlotte had a plan in case The Boss was unable to make it to Survivor Series following her brutal Hell in a Cell Match: The self-proclaimed “Queen” went so far as to recruit her protégé Dana Brooke as a team alternate.

The two remaining women to represent Team Red in the 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match are made known, along with one “alternate.”

SmackDown LIVE, meanwhile, is represented by team captain Nikki Bella, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Naomi and Carmella. Team Blue management also agreed to let Natalya coach the squad, but it remains to be seen whether The Queen of Harts will help SmackDown LIVE’s chances of keeping the peace amid such combustible elements.

What type of dream matchups await at Survivor Series? Will the WWE Universe witness a showdown between the champions, Flair and Lynch? Might Nikki Bella, the longest reigning Divas Champion in WWE history, step toe-to-toe with the destructive Nia Jax? What happens if onetime best friends Bayley and Carmella come to blows?

Prediction: Raw to win

20161107_match_survivorseries_dolphsami-659f400b34f814d6151514a4c7291d08Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler vs. Sami Zayn

Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler stunned the WWE Universe when, instead of waiting for a challenger from SmackDown LIVE to present himself, he decided to take matters into his own hands. That’s when The Showoff issued an open challenge to any Raw Superstar to battle him for the coveted Intercontinental Title at WWE Survivor Series.

Obviously, such a rewarding offer did not go unnoticed by Raw’s locker room, as both Rusev and Sami Zayn came forward as potential No. 1 contenders. After The Super Athlete and The Underdog from the Underground went head-to-head, it was Zayn who won the right to face Ziggler at WWE’s fall classic.

Moments after earning an Intercontinental Championship opportunity against SmackDown LIVE’s Dolph Ziggler at Survivor Series, The Underdog from the Underground comments on his forthcoming battle with The Showoff at WWE’s fall classic.

This epic contest is not just a clash for one of WWE’s most prestigious titles; it’s also a huge opportunity for both brands to further prove their superiority over the other. Zayn will have a chance to win his first WWE championship, while also scoring a major coup for the Raw brand by bringing the Intercontinental Title over to the red team.

The move for Ziggler is certainly a curious one as he risks not only losing the prized championship, but giving it up to the opposing brand in a scenario that could possibly see him prevented from having a chance to win it back. However, as the WWE Universe has learned with Ziggler, the determined Superstar is not afraid to risk it all on in the heat of battle. This is, after all, the man who put his career on the line at WWE No Mercy against The Miz … and he’s still here fighting.

Will Ziggler be able to escape another daring title match with the Intercontinental Championship in tow? Or, will Zayn claim the storied title for himself and the Raw brand?

CARD SUBJECT TO CHANGE – thank’s to the WWE’s bad writers Ziggler lost his championship to the Miz, kicking him out of the Suvivor Series match just days before Ziggler weas to defend it, instead of changing this whole section, I am simply adding this, I now think whilst my prediction will stay the same but via Ziggler getting involved.

Prediction: Sami Zayn

20161108_match_survivorseries_sd_tagmatch-c990a284eb34ada7f79cea0a2d168110Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match

The world will find out which tag team division is superior when Team Raw and Team SmackDown LIVE square off in a 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day will lead Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Sheamus & Cesaro, Enzo Amore & Big Cass and The Shining Stars into battle against SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Rhyno, The Usos, American Alpha, The Hype Bros and Breezango.

Even though neither brand can claim to have a truly harmonious faction, both armies are full of firepower, and the potential for once-in-a-lifetime matchups is high.

Tyler Breeze & Fandango go head-to-head against Simon Gotch & Aiden English for an opportunity to represent Team Blue at Survivor Series.

The Traditional Elimination Match can only end when all of the tag teams belonging to a brand are eliminated. Elimination can occur by pinfall, submission, disqualification or count-out, and tag teams must leave the ringside area after one of their members has been eliminated.

What will happen when teams like Gallows & Anderson or Sheamus & Cesaro cross paths with the likes of Chad Gable & Jason Jordan or The Usos? Will The New Day and Slater & Rhyno meet up inside the ring?

Prediction: SmackDown

20161108_match_survivorseries_kendrickkalisto-447966199a59ca705651d17b3f7757f5WWE Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick vs. Kalisto (If Kalisto wins, SmackDown LIVE gets the entire Cruiserweight division)

The stakes won’t get much higher than when SmackDown LIVE’s Kalisto challenges Raw’s Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick at Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 20.

Not only will Kalisto have the chance to become champion, but if successful, The King of Flight will accomplish something even bigger: Bringing the entire Cruiserweight division to SmackDown LIVE.

The seismic deal was forged by Raw General Manager Mick Foley and SmackDown LIVE’s Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, agreed upon after Dolph Ziggler put SmackDown LIVE’s Intercontinental Championship in jeopardy by issuing his open challenge to Raw.

A victory by Kalisto would deliver a devastating blow to Team Red mere months after Raw launched the action-packed division, a decision that was driven by the brand’s competition with SmackDown LIVE.

Kalisto, a quintessential Cruiserweight if there ever was one, has had to watch from afar as his peers turn up the thrills on Monday nights, and before that, as part of the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic. The desire to prove himself as WWE’s premier Cruiserweight no doubt weighs heavily on The King of Flight.

And though The Brian Kendrick prides himself on being “the man with the plan,” does The Wizard of Odd have a strategy for dealing with the mesmerizing aerial assault of Kalisto — an opponent Kendrick has yet to face since returning to WWE?

At WWE’s fall classic, the fate of the entire Cruiserweight division hinges on this all-important contest.

Prediction: Kalisto

Been a fan of the WWE since 2000, watched a few from the early years online, wasn’t a fan of where the “Powers that be” were taking the company but it has gotten better with the brand split, I thought that it was a format that worked
