4b.) Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke vs. Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans [Tag Match]
On last week’s WWE Raw, Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax retained the Women’s Tag Team Championships against Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke, and Nia Jax defeated Lana that same night. These victories made the majority of the Raw Women’s Survivor Series Team look weak. If the WWE does not want Baszler and Jax to carry the team completely, Rose, Brooke, and Lana either need victories to look strong again or must be replaced.
While it is unlikely that Lana will regain any momentum at this point, Rose and Brooke can regain momentum by defeating the new makeshift tag team of Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans. Royce and Evans tried to qualify for this team but failed. They have continued to belittle the current Survivor Series Team in backstage segments. However, they clearly cannot get along, so their lack of chemistry will cost them the match against Rose and Brooke.
Prediction: Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke
4a.) Keith Lee and Braun Strowman vs. AJ Styles and Sheamus [Tag Match]
On last week’s episode, Braun Strowman and Sheamus had a confrontation after hugging. Sheamus maintained his heel status by Brogue Kicking Strowman. Although Lee has been in a rivalry with Strowman, he bulldozed Sheamus out of the ring for attacking Strowman. Afterwards, as captain, Styles dropkicked Lee for attacking a fellow heel in Sheamus. Now that this entire team is a mess, it’s time for a tag team match, playa!
Holla Holla Holla! Lee and Strowman seem to be the monstrous babyfaces here who would utterly decimate the scrawny heels in Styles and Sheamus. If this match takes place, they would be the safe bets to win. Sheamus would very likely be pinned in the process since Styles needs to look strong as captain. However, don’t be surprised if his body guard causes this tag match to end inconclusively. Raw is frequently known for its non-finishes.
Prediction: Keith Lee and Braun Strowman
3.) Elias vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Riddle [Survivor Series Qualifying Match]
Elias lost to Keith Lee in his first Survivor Series qualifying match. Jeff Hardy lost to AJ Styles in his first Survivor Series qualifying match. Riddle lost to Sheamus in his first Survivor Series qualifying match. Now, all three of them are in this Last Chance Survivor Series Qualifying Triple Threat Match. Since Hardy and Elias are feuding and Riddle recently had a name change to portray a more serious charatcer, it would be sensible for Riddle to pick up the win here.
However, Elias has been rumored for a push and he needs to redeem himself from his loss to Hardy in the guitar on a pole match on last week’s episode. It’s strange that the team asked for Drew McIntyre to join their team, yet the WWE still booked this match amongst these three contestants. Nonetheless, as the only heel in this match, Elias is the safe bet to win this triple threat through nefarious means (i.e. pinning Riddle after Hardy already does damage to Riddle).
