Survivor Series 2017 is set to air live from the Toyota Center in Houston Texas, with the kickoff show starting at 5:00 p.m. ET and the main show beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET. It will surely be a memorable night as WWE put together arguably the most stacked card in recent memory. So let's take a look at what we'll expect.
Being one of WWE's biggest four shows of the year, Survivor Series will feature a two-hour kick off show. That might feel a little like overkill to some fans, but at least we'll be treated to some action if we tune in. The only match booked for the pre-show at the time of typing this is Enzo Amore versus Kalisto. Muscles Marinara has split the 205 Live locker room since his arrival on the purple brand, and he'll want to leave this one with the title still in hand if he wants to keep his following.
When this match was Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose versus The Usos it was perhaps the most anticipated matchup on the card. Survivor Series has undergone a lot of changes in the past two weeks though and now it's Sheamus and Cesaro who will take on the SmackDown Tag Team Champions. Fear not though as there is still going to be an awful lot of talent in that ring for this one. It may not steal the show, but it will still be a terrific match.
This match could very well be the sleeper of the whole show. When the wholesale Survivor Series changes started taking place, it's probably fair to say that many fans would have wanted one of these titles to switch hands. That hasn't been the case though, and we will, in fact, see The Miz take on Baron Corbin this Sunday. One thing's for certain, these two men do not mince their words. They've proved that on social media in recent weeks. If they can take that animosity for each other and transfer it to the ring then we may have a good match on our hands.
This one could very well be the most interesting match of the night on Sunday. Speaking of those wholesale changes that have been taking place to the Survivor Series card, the final one happened on SmackDown Live this week. Charlotte winning the SmackDown Women's Championship has taken her out of this matchup which means Team Blue had a slot free—which was claimed by the former champion Natalya. The speculation was rife as to who could take that spot. Some of the clashes in this one are very interesting also, especially with five different women getting the chance to potentially pit themselves against Asuka.
Remember earlier when we covered Rollins and Ambrose versus The Usos being taken away from us? Well, this match right here is the reason that the majority of us are OK with that. The New Day cost The Architect and The Lunatic their Raw Tag Team Championships and now they have the whole Shield to answer to at Survivor Series. It's crazy to think that these two trios have never met inside the ring before. This is going to be a big one, and could possibly steal the show.
As touched upon above, Alexa Bliss was all set to take on Natalya up until Tuesday night. Now Raw's resident Goddess has the much more daunting task of a match with Charlotte Flair. No offense intended to Nattie, but Alexa Bliss vs Charlotte is a much more attention-grabbing matchup than what was already in place for this one. Not including Asuka because she has only just arrived on the main roster, this is the biggest women's match possible in WWE right now and it can only happen on a show where Raw and SmackDown Live Superstars are able to clash.
Of all the last minute alterations that have been being made to the Survivor Series card, this ten man match has undergone the most. John Cena has been added and Triple H has inserted himself into proceedings. One thing's for certain, this match has more name value than any other in recent history. Some of the clashes and twists that can happen along the way will make this can't miss. Angle vs Shane, Triple H vs Bobby Roode, Nakamura reigniting things with Finn Balor, so many potential possibilities. Let's not discount the chances of Jason Jordan showing his face and throwing a spanner in the works for Team Raw either.
This is the big one. Brock Lesnar vs AJ Styles. WWE's two World Champions clashing in what is undoubtedly a dream match. Let's be honest, Jinder Mahal battling The Beast had very few people excited. Thankfully WWE realized that and switched the belt to The Phenomenal One. Even though we've only had less than two weeks of build for this finalized match up, the expectations are high and the excitement is real. A Lesnar loss may be unlikely, but any match involving AJ Styles is almost guaranteed to be a phenomenal one.
