Seth Rollins will wager his captain's spot on Team Raw for Survivor Series when he talks on Andrade. Additionally, Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch will team up again with longtime rival Charlotte Flair and Rey Mysterio will appear live six days before challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series.





Seth Rollins to wager his Survivor Series berth against Andrade

WWE said:
Seth Rollins was the first Superstar announced for Team Raw in the Men’s Survivor Series Match. Now, thanks to an intense back-and-forth that began with Zelina Vega’s Twitter provocation, he might not make the pay-per-view at all.


After the main event in Regensburg, Germany, The Architect responded with a message of his own and will face the former NXT Champion this Monday for the captain spot on Team Raw.



Rollins and Andrade are two of the best at what they do, so the match is already highly anticipated, but it’s hardly a given that The Beastslayer will prevail. Ever since running afoul of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, Rollins has been searching for something to right the ship, while Andrade has held steady with a series of unanswered wins following his arrival on Raw. Should Rollins falter again and should Andrade continue to cruise, Survivor Series will look very, very different.


Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair to compete in tag team action


Despite falling short of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, Becky Lynch isn’t quite giving up on her dream to revive the legend of Becky Two Belts. This Monday, The Man will once again team with Charlotte Flair, her partner in last week’s ill-fated title bid. And after showing surprising chemistry with her longtime rival, The Man will once again pair up with The Queen.

Their first outing was enough of a success to warrant a second teaming, and while their opponents have yet to be announced, the possibility is a tantalizing one for both Superstars. Not only could Becky Two Belts return to the fold, but a WWE Women’s Tag Team Title could make Charlotte only the second Superstar to record the Women’s Grand Slam (Raw Women’s Title, SmackDown Women’s Championship, NXT Women’s Title and WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship). In other words, history is in play for both.


Rey Mysterio to appear live on Raw before challenging Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series

Rey Mysterio has been relatively quiet since hobbling Brock Lesnar with a pipe and challenging The Beast to a WWE Championship Match at Survivor Series. But The Ultimate Underdog will surge back into the forefront this Monday when he appears live just six days before his monumental opportunity. Whatever he has to say will surely be worth hearing as Survivor Series approaches … and, of course, there’s always the possibility that Lesnar isn’t far behind.

Tune in to Raw this Monday for the final lead-up to the Survivor Series pay-per-view, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.


Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins to challenge Raw Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders

A Triple Threat victory at WWE Live in Mannheim, Germany, has led to a golden opportunity for Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins that could shift the balance of not only Raw, but Survivor Series as well.

After defeating The O.C. and The Street Profits in a match at the Live Event, Ryder & Hawkins will get their big chance when they challenge reigning champs The Viking Raiders this Monday on Raw.



To say the fan favorite former champs face a tall order is an understatement. Erik & Ivar remain undefeated in traditional tag team action, most recently knocking off former NXT UK Tag Team Champions Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster. But Ryder & Hawkins’ persistence speaks for itself, as does recent history. The all-champions’ Triple Threat Match at Survivor Series has already been upended thanks to The New Day’s SmackDown Tag Team Title victory against The Revival, and it’s not out of the question for Ryder & Hawkins to (again) defy the odds and (again) change the complexion of next Sunday’s battle for brand supremacy.

Tune in to Raw to see who heads to Survivor Series as Raw Tag Team Champions, this Monday live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Natalya to battle WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Asuka

Not everyone can boast that they submitted Asuka in the middle of the ring, but two weeks ago, Natalya did just that. And while The Queen of Harts missed out on the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title Match she seemed headed toward last week, she’ll get a chance to face off with The Empress of Tomorrow one-on-one come Monday. Given that Natalya owns an emphatic victory over Asuka, it’s safe to say she holds an early mental advantage going into the match. Of course, Kairi Sane’s presence is likely to complicate the proceedings. As good as Natalya is, there simply aren’t two of her.

I hope for more NXT shenanigans this week it's going great so far and not so overbearing.

Who exactly are Charlynch facing in Tag Team action? IIconics? A randomly put together Jobber team? Tryouts?

Asuka squashes Natayla and I'll be happy.

So they are going to right the wrong from 2 weeks ago and give Asuka a strong win over Nattie, good.

Seth losing could actually be the start of something interesting, so he'll surely win :lol

Becky and Charlotte are squashing The IIconics, there's nobody else, unless it's an NXT team.

Rey is always good on the mic, so I look forward to his promo.

Vikings will kill the Edge Heads, obviously.

All in all, looks like a pretty shitty show.

Maybe WWE realized they didn't get the media attention they hoped for with the first ever Women's match in Saudi Arabia, so they're halting this Nattie push. It was a worthwhile idea I guess.

watch us get a match with Rusev, and a pre-taped segment with Lana/Lashley to further that promote that programming.

No, they're going to give her a fluke roll-up after getting dominated for most of the match and saved by Kairi multiple times. That's every KW victory since HIAC.

That's assuming the match even has a finish. The NXT women are definitely showing up for either this or Becky and Charlotte's segment.

The NXT invasion has already been mishandled and is losing steam to where the War Games build has also been undermined as a result.

You have nothing else in this company other than that. Lifeless.

Hold on a minute. Her and charlotte beat the champions where she submitted one of them and Nattie's consolation prize is a meaningless one on one with Asuka for bragging rights? the fuck?

If they are having Asuka go over Natalya (which they should) then Asuka vs. Natalya is fine and wont kill any momentum. There could be interference from another brand too.

I'm watching for Charlotte, Becky and Street Profits. Well, flipping channels between this and watching Mahomes doing his thing on MNF.

Don't be so sure. Hawkins and Ryder feel more WWE Raw then the Viking Raiders do. I bet that's what Vince could be thinking too. I actually figured Gallows and Anderson would be in this spot but guess not.
