WWE Raw is heading into WWE Survivor Series 2021 to battle WWE SmackDown in what has become the anticipated annual brand warfare. Due to the timing of the draft in the calendar year, though, the lack of brand loyalty has made this PPV meaningless.
Not to mention, the lack of stakes has made this PPV underwhelming as well. Despite those booking mishaps and poor long-term planning, will SmackDown invade Raw on the go-home show before Survivor Series? Also, will someone be replaced on the WWE Raw Survivor Series teams this week?
In this week’s episode, there are no scheduled matches, but Big E vs. Kevin Owens as well as Becky Lynch vs. Liv Morgan have been featured as the top feuds to look forward to on this episode.
Also, Bobby Lashley is advertised to continue his path of destruction. WWE is one week away from WWE Survivor Series 2021. There are six matches that are already expected to occur at this PPV event: Big E vs. Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair, Damian Priest vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, RK-Bro vs. The Usos, Women’s 5 vs. 5, and Men’s 5 vs. 5.
With that being addressed, it’s now time to preview and predict what will actually occur on this week’s episode of WWE Raw.
WWE Raw is scheduled to take place on November 15, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT live on the USA Network. Here are some predictions for this week’s show.
Will Someone Be Replaced On The WWE Raw Survivor Series Teams?
On this week’s WWE Raw, nobody is safe on the Raw Survivor Series Team. The WWE decided to announce every participant for the Survivor Series teams on Twitter, instead of booking qualification matches to determine deserving members for each team.
Now, this company has decided to change its teams at the last minute by taking spots away from the superstars it already officially announced on Twitter. The three-hour circus continues on Monday Nights, and the booking is as flawed as a Philly Cheesesteak without the cheese. Why stop now?
While it would have made more sense for Austin Theory to replace his current rival, Dominik Mysterio, last week, Bobby Lashley, who should have already been on the team, replaced Mysterio instead.
Since logic does not matter anymore on WWE Raw, it would make sense for Goldberg to replace Rey Mysterio on this Survivor Series team. Clearly, since Mysterios are a tag team, they are not needed on the Survivor Series team. This team is geared for singles competitors like Rollins, Balor, Owens, and Lashley. Clearly, Goldberg needs the spot more.
Based on what was teased in the past two weeks, here are some other matches to expect on this week’s show: RKBro (c) vs. Dirty Dawgs vs. AJ Styles & Omos vs. Street Profits for the Raw Tag Team Titles Rhea Ripley & Nikki ASH (c) vs. Queen Zelina & Carmella for the Women’s Tag Team Titles, Damian Priest (c) vs. Apollo Crews for the U.S. Title, Bianca Belair vs. DouDrop, Bobby Lashley vs. Rey Mysterio, Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens, Becky Lynch (c) vs. Liv Morgan for the Raw Women’s Title, and Big E (c) vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Title.
