The time has come again for Raw and SmackDown to meet head-to-head at Survivor Series, and this year’s edition will be extra special.
In addition to the traditional Champion vs. Champion and 5-on-5 elimination matches, this year’s Survivor Series will feature a special tribute to the career of the Undertaker. ’Taker made his WWE debut 30 years ago at Survivor Series and Sunday’s show is being billed as his “Final Farewell.” What exactly that will entail and just how final that farewell will be remains to be seen.
As for the matches on the card, the headliners are men’s and women’s Champion vs. Champion match and the two Survivor Series matches. Roman Reigns will face his Raw counterpart Drew McIntyre after McIntyre defeated Randy Orton on Monday on Raw to regain his WWE championship. On the women’s side it’s Asuka vs. Sasha Banks.
Last year’s Survivor Series was built around establishing NXT as worthy of being considered a full-fledged third brand, with NXT competitors winning four of the 10 matches on the card. NXT will not be part of this year’s show, though, reportedly to keep the rosters more separate as a pandemic safety measure.
