Survivor Series is upon us, and it is time for some force-fed brand supremacy! For the past few years since the brand split was reintroduced, we get Raw versus SmackDown every November. This year marks the first time NXT has entered the fray, giving us a lot of triple threats. Who will be the best brand? Objectively, it is NXT, but we will still find out Sunday night. Javier & Evan are here to predict all the matchups from this year’s Survivor Series?

Viking Raiders vs New Day vs Undisputed Era

Javier: It’s a battle of big boys versus medium boys versus small boys. I think Fish and O’Reilly pull it out in the end by being some smart individuals in what is a guarantee to be an awesome match.

Pick – Undisputed Era

Evan: Viking Raiders suffering their first main roster loss in Saudi Arabia means they don’t need to be protected in the same way. I still see them getting the win here, likely pinning a member of the New Day.

Pick – Viking Raiders

A.J. Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura vs Roderick Strong

Javier: I genuinely have no idea who is winning. They are all heels and each are in a partnership of some kind. I think that Strong pulls it out in what will be an incredible match.

Pick – Roderick Strong

Evan: What a combination of talent in a triple threat. Shinsuke Nakamura just got the new title, so let’s say he walks out of this match with a win to boot.

Pick – Shinsuke Nakamura

Becky Lynch vs Bayley vs Shayna Baszler

Javier: I think there will be some funny business here but I believe that Baszler walks out with the win. She’s been beaten down at every turn and WWE needs to make her look unbeatable.

Pick – Shayna Baszler

Evan: Last night Baszler got pinned, and I think she will be out for blood here. Someone is getting choked out, and that someone is probably Bayley.

Pick – Shayna Baszler

NXT Championship: Adam Cole (c) vs Pete Dunne

Javier: My two favorite wrestlers are fighting each other so really I’m the winner but we’ll let Cole retain. He has an appointment with Ciampa for that title so I don’t see Dunne pulling it out.

Pick – Adam Cole

Evan: Adam Cole’s week: defeat Dominik Dijakovic in a ladder match, beat Heavy Machinery & New Day in a tag match, lose a brutal WarGames match while getting dropped off the top of the cage through some tables, and now successfully defend his NXT Championship against Pete Dunne. Give this man a rest.

Pick – Adam Cole

WWE Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Rey Mysterio – No DQ Match

Javier: This genuinely doesn’t merit an explanation. There is a 0 percent chance of Mysterio winning this match.

Pick – Brock Lesnar

Evan: Could you imagine if they let Rey Mysterio get the W all by himself? He may get help from Cain Velasquez, but it seems to be a long shot.

Pick – Brock Lesnar

WWE Universal Championship: The Fiend (c) vs Daniel Bryan

Javier: Bray just won the belt and made it blue. There is no way that his run is going to end this early. I expect a nice, long run with the gold.

Pick – The Fiend

Evan: When someone gets a new belt, they are going to hold it for a while. Bryan knows this, because he had his vegan belt. The blue belt stays in the Funhouse.

Pick – The Fiend

Women’s Elimination Match: Team Raw (Charlotte, Asuka, Kairi Sane, Natalya, Sarah Logan) vs Team SmackDown (Sasha Banks, Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, Carmella, Dana Brooke) vs Team NXT (Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Toni Storm, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair)

Javier: Rhea Ripley showed everyone why she’s a Star last night and I’ll be damned if she doesn’t do it again.

Pick – Team NXT

Evan: Even on paper, Team NXT just looks like the stronger squad. Four out of five of them are beat up from WarGames, but I still think they pull it out.

Pick –  Team NXT

Men’s Elimination Match: Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, Kevin Owens) vs Team SmackDown (Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Mustafa Ali, Shorty G, King Corbin) vs Team NXT (TBD)

Javier: The Raw and Smackdown teams aren’t great and while it could totally be just Roman going “lol we win”, I think Baron Corbin screws them, Rollins can’t cut it, and Tomasso Ciampa shows everyone why NXT is the superior brand.

Pick – Team NXT

Evan: Kevin Owens appearing last night for Team Ciampa adds an interesting wrinkle to this match. NXT will look great, but why not use this to make a new star? Have Ricochet be the sole survivor and give him that feather in the cap.

Pick – Team Raw

That’s who we have walking away as victors on Sunday. Javier is predicting five wins for NXT and none for Raw and SmackDown. Evan has Raw with two, NXT with two, and SmackDown with one.
