Wrestle Royalty Predicts – Survivor Series

Male Traditional Survivor Series Match
Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, & Austin Theory) vs Team SmackDown (Jeff Hardy, Happy Corbin, King Woods, Drew McIntyre, & Sheamus)

Queen KB:
What a mess! They totally didn’t build anything for this match. Survivor Series used to be a Big 4 PPV and now it’s less than an afterthought. No qualifying matches, no creativity, no Nattie grabbing any crotches, just this is who is in the matches announced, then juggled on Raw and SD as if that makes it any better. Total mess all the way around.

I admit I’m interested in seeing how Theory works with these big names. It’s more his character that has me worried. If he wasn’t such a golden retriever, I wouldn’t question it. I can just see Lashley and Rollins getting really annoyed with him. Then again, Team SD could be annoyed by Corbin for the same reason. Beyond them, the teams are pretty evenly matched and could be fun. I just hope they do right by the superstars and some solid storylines come from it. I’m going to say Team SD wins as it goes along with my thoughts for the other Traditional Survivor Series Match.

Winners – Team SmackDown

Jester Jason:
Agreeing here on multiple points with Queen, especially the trash build of the teams with absolutely no build or suspense, beyond the swap of 2 members on Team SmackDown. I doubt Corbin will last long in the match as I feel Team SmackDown will throw him to the wolves (Lashley and/or Rollins) and he will be eliminated early. Sheamus is the wild card because with him just returning, we don’t know his direction if he’s going face or heel this time.

On Team Raw, I don’t see Balor lasting long as he is the only face on the team. If he does manage to not be the first eliminated, he will be the last one standing on Team Raw. However, I see Rollins being the final member standing to support his “Monday Night Rollins” line and winning it all for his team.

Winners – Team Raw

Female Traditional Survivor Series Match
Team Raw (Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Carmella, & Queen Zelina) vs Team SmackDown (Sasha Banks, Shotzi, Shayna Baszler, Natalya, Toni Storm)

Queen KB:
If you wonder how I feel about the build for this match, read my first paragraph of the Men’s Traditional Match again.

As with the men, these teams are very evenly matched and interesting. There are a lot of women in this match who we have never been in the ring together, which I hope leads to great moves and even greater storylines. So much fun in this match, and hopefully building some solid storylines. The possibilities are endless, but because of Bianca and Rhea, I’m going with Team Raw to win this one. I know Shayna is a force and finally being built that way, but I think the issues between Shotzi and Sasha will make the entire team a mess trying to work together.

Winners – Team Raw

Jester Jason:
This is certainly an interesting one to try and predict because of the even balanced teams. I’m still not happy about how teams were just thrown together with no real build or anything. I have a gut instinct that this will come down to Rhea Ripley and Shayna Baszler being the last two left standing for each team. They will put on a submission and physically grounded clinic with Shayna getting the submission hold locked in, forcing Rhea to tap out and giving Team SmackDown the win.

Winners – Team SmackDown

Becky Lynch (Raw Women’s Champion) vs Charlotte Flair (SmackDown Women’s Champion)

Queen KB:
If they even fathom giving this one to Char, I might be done. I’ve really been disgusted by how she’s handled things lately, and think WWE has done her a disservice by not stripping her of the strap, fining her, and suspending her for hijacking SD. Warrior was fired for it, so letting Char get away with it sets bad precedent. She now knows she can get away with it. I’m truly hoping Char walks out of this with a black eye. Yes, an actual black eye!  I don’t think this will be anything like a clean wrestling match. This should quickly devolve to a fight, no matter how many times they have been threatened to not let it happen. Char’s attitude has been so bad for so long, that I don’t see her entitlement changing. I also see no reason for the plastic ego to go over here, it’s just rewarding her for being horrible to people. Besides, to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man, and Char will never be that big of a superstar.

Winner – “The Man” Becky Lynch

Jester Jason:
This one is going to be physical and get there quick. Both do not like or care for each other in the least and want to literally destroy one another. I expect weapons to get involved in the match at some point, resulting in a no decision result. It will likely be Charlotte that introduces the weapons, then Becky gets them as well. This evolves into an all out war between the both of them beating the crap out of one another.

Winner – No Decision

Winner – Becky Lynch

 


Big E (Universal Champion) vs Roman Reigns (WWE Champion)

Queen KB:
After what Reigns and his Usos did to Woods’ royal vestment and crown at the start of SD, I wondered if Reigns would have a chance at all against E on Sunday. You mess with one of them, you mess with all, as we saw at the end of SD this week. I love that neither faction went over at the end of SD, but that’s the only thing I loved. This should be a New Day vs Bloodline match, not a Clash of Champions match.  Honestly, this is a mess all the way around and because of the factions, even though some have other matches, who will be involved in this match and cause a DQ. This is the match that won’t end clean, and I’m not sure if it will be Usos or Woods who cause it, nor do I care.

Winner – None/DQ

Jester Jason:
As mentioned by Queen, this is a huge letdown and loss by WWE that this isn’t Team New Day vs Team Bloodline in a Survivor Series match. The build has been nothing but New Day vs Bloodline, but instead, we get just Big E vs Roman Reigns. This is a slap to the intelligence of the fans. There are two outcomes I see happening. The first of which, The Usos come out to interfere, but are stopped by Kofi and King Woods, then while Big E is distracted, Roman sets up and hits a Superman Punch or Spear to pick up the win. The second option is the match is ruled a No Decision when The Usos interfere, then Kofi and Woods come out to make the save. This results in the match being restarted as a 6 man tag match. In either scenario, The Bloodline walks away with the win.

Winner – Roman Reigns/The Bloodline

Noble Natalie:
Winner – Big E

 


RK-Bro (Raw Tag Team Champions) vs Usos (SmackDown Tag Team Champions

Queen KB:
The big questions are whether there will be involvement from others, and how bad Reigns would plotz if the Usos lost. Honestly, I don’t care about how badly they are beaten by the Head of The Table, they shouldn’t get this big win after all the broken rules that were brushed under the ring when they were strapped just because they’re Bloodline.

Winners – RK-Bro

Jester Jason:
This should be a decent match, but I think it will be more one sided than we want. As much as I hate The Usos because of not being reprimanded for their off-screen atrocities, I hate to admit that I think they will go over here.

Winners – The Usos

Winners – RK-Bro

 


Damian Priest (United States Champion) vs Shinsuke Nakamura (Intercontinental Champion)

Queen KB:
This will be a fun match and could be the sleeper great of the night. These two will leave it all in the ring in this match, if VKM pulls his head out and lets them have a great match. For these two it’s not in the booking, it’s in the stepping back and letting them kill it, because they are most talented, and I can see them working well together in the ring. This match I’m excited for. It’s sad that this match has me most interested on the card, incredibly sad. Oh, the kid will pull it out as he will get over so much more with a win like this. Naka really doesn’t need this win to cement himself in WWE, or his career, in any way.

Winner – Priest

Jester Jason
Completely agree with Queen here! This match will be the sleeper match of the night that will steal the show. Both men will put on a clinic of a match and leave nothing to chance in the ring. This will be a great back and forth match that will likely see Nakamura picking up the win.

Winner – Shinsuke Nakamura

Noble Natalie:
Winner – Damian Priest

 


The Rock’s 25th Anniversary Battle Royal

Queen KB:
This is an absolute kick to the teeth of everyone who wrestles for WWE, and every WWE fan who has ever been excited about any Survivor Series ever! Not only could WWE not be bothered to build for this show, but ten minutes after SD ended they threw this travesty at us. I’m complete and utterly disgusted. I’m going to close my eyes and point at a name, because that’s how much this match, or winning this match matters in the grand scheme of things. My finger landed on Cesaro. If they do this with the women, I pick Naomi. There, I predicted this absolute travesty of a last minute added level of BS from VKM when he realized that maybe he couldn’t fill a whole show by throwing ideas at the wall, not actually giving a shit about any of it.

Winner – Cesaro (and possibly Naomi)

Jester Jason:
I’m not going to delve into a whole big thing like Queen did. They could have given us the courtesy of at least announcing this during SmackDown tonight. With the way we’ve been seeing a build around Ricochet, I think he will be the one to get the win here.

Winner – Ricochet

Noble Natalie:
Winner – Cesaro
