– WWE Teasing Title Changes Before Survivor Series 2017
Below is what WWE posted ahead of tonight’s episode of Raw:
Will the current Raw titleholders still be in place for their Champion vs. Champion Matches at Survivor Series?
“Last Monday, Angle announced a slew of Champion vs. Champion Matches for the Raw vs. SmackDown battle for brand supremacy, but will the titleholders be able to hold on to their championships long enough to defend them on Sunday, Nov. 19?
Though anything can happen in WWE, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman seem fairly focused on WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, so perhaps The Beast is secure for the time being. But, that same cannot be said for all other Raw titleholders.
Alexa Bliss has consistently represented Team Red as a formidable Raw Women’s Champion, but her attempts to brag about her successful title defense against Mickie James at WWE TLC were spoiled by the six-time Women’s Champion, who took out Little Miss Bliss with a wicked DDT last week on the red brand.
Without a doubt, Mickie isn’t done with the “goddess.” Additionally, the undefeated Asuka triumphed over Emma in her Raw debut, and it likely won’t be long before The Empress of Tomorrow sets her sights of Raw’s top prize.
In his collective reigns, The Miz has held the Intercontinental Title longer than all but two past Superstars, but can The A-Lister remain champion if he continues to antagonize dangerous forces such as Raw General Manager Kurt Angle and The Shield in his never-ending search for respect?
Speaking of The Shield, Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose are not likely to back down from any fight prior to Survivor Series.”
– Raw’s Survivor Series Teams To Be Revealed Tonight
It looks like Kurt Angle will be announcing Raw’s Men’s & Women’s Survivor Series teams on tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw. Below is what WWE posted:
“Just prior to Raw being put under siege, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle was just about to name Team Red combatants in the Men’s Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Match for the Nov. 19 pay-per-view.
Earlier in the night, Alicia Fox stunned the WWE Universe when she overcame Bayley and Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat Match to become the captain and first official participant in the Women’s Survivor Series Match.
After the turbulent events that closed out last week’s Monday Night Raw, will Angle decide to reevaluate how he selects the remaining members of his teams? Or will the confident GM simply pick up right where he left off and stay the course?”
– Top Raw Star Having Heat With Vince McMahon?
During a recent edition of “The Taz Show” podcast, WWF Veteran Taz questioned if Finn Balor has heat with Vince McMahon after what happened on last week’s episode of Raw. Below is Taz’ conversation with co-host Dennis:
Taz: I had this theory because of basically what happened. They had Finn get chokeslammed three times and get beat pinned after he just got this huge win and this great match at TLC against AJ Styles.
I don’t think that made sense. I’m starting to think, well, does he have heat? Because apparently AJ Styles said to some fan on social media that basically Vince McMahon had no idea that he and AJ were gonna do the too sweet thing. I’m pretty sure it’s on there and unless he took it down.
Dennis: AJ tweeted – “Just so you know Louis (the fan) Vince had nothing to do with the too sweet between Finn and I. In fact I say it was two men showing the world that we haven’t forgotten where we came from forever we will love our BC brothers.”
Taz: I don’t think that Finn Balor should even be in the ring with Kane. I don’t think that you should use Finn as a sacrificial lamb because he’s a lot smaller than Kane. I think that just shows old-school WWE booking.
I was not a fan of this. You could have accomplished what you wanted to accomplish with Kane which I’m not saying you shouldn’t do, well you could have accomplished that without using Finn as a pawn. And that’s what you did.
I don’t think they needed to do that. Kane is a big enough star. That’s not gonna make him a bigger star by doing that to Finn.
You went three steps forward with Finn on Sunday by getting a great win in a great match over AJ, now you dropped back down. And you do this a lot with Finn.
