WWE Raw is scheduled to take place on November 9, 2020, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT live on the USA Network.

On this week’s episode of WWE Raw, there is one scheduled match as of this writing: Elias vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Riddle in a Last Chance Survivor Series Qualifying Match. There is also one scheduled segment: Drew McIntyre will be a special guest on ‘Moment of Bliss.’ The WWE has made it pretty clear that it is planning a triple threat championship feud amongst McIntyre, Orton, and Wyatt with Mr. MITB The Miz looming in the balance as a red herring of sorts.

As for WWE Survivor Series 2020, last-minute title changes could change everything with the champion vs. champion matches. In terms of the 5 vs. 5 Survivor Series matches, the teams are shaping up nicely and the last few members for these teams will hopefully be decided this week. Unless any replacements occur, the Raw Women’s Survivor Series Team is complete and the Raw Men’s Survivor Series Team needs one more team member.

With that being addressed, it’s now time to preview and predict the matches and segments that will occur on this week’s episode of WWE Raw. To start things off, let’s predict what will happen with the title scene in the Raw Tag Team Division after Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin of the Hurt Business decisively defeated Raw Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day in a non-title bout last week.

Our Kevin Parvizi speculated the possibility of The New Day losing the Raw Tag Team Championships before Survivor Series. Considering that Street Profits are babyface champions on SmackDown, the likelihood of Alexander and Benjamin becoming heel champions on Raw to maintain the babyface-heel dynamics in this upcoming Survivor Series bout is high.

However, Survivor Series is Kingston and Woods’ first PPV since returning from injury, especially for Xavier Woods who has been out of action for nearly a year. It would be unjustifiable and unbelievable to end their title reign so soon after winning those belts less than a month ago AND leave them off one of the biggest PPVs of the year.

Alexander and Benjamin do not need to win the titles just yet because they can still remain relevant at Survivor Series by helping United States Champion Bobby Lashley assuredly pick up a win against Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn. Henceforth, The New Day should and will retain the titles here and lose it to Alexander and Benjamin at WWE TLC 2020 in December instead.

Prediction: The New Day
