Survivor Series Aftermath
Focusing on the WWE Raw show, The Men's' team swept the competition over Smackdown. Lana was the last woman standing with a smeared lipstick around her lips. Bobby Lashley handled Sami Zayn. However, both Drew McIntyre and Asuka fell short in their dominance as champions. Which direction will WWE Raw go that will lead to December's PPV TLC - Tables, Ladders, and Chairs.
Let's start with the WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. The storyline between The Scottish Warrior and The Viper is over. So, who can be the next number, one contender, for the WWE Championship? Team Raw had a triumphant win at Survivor Series. They finally came together and worked as a team. However, that may all end should they find themselves arguing who is the better superstar. AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, Riddle, Keith Lee, and Sheamus could have a fatal-five-way match to determine who will be the superstar to challenge Drew at TLC. And with that prediction, you can add The Miz to the picture.
The Miz won the battle royal in the Kick-Off Show at Survivor Series. He could brag about how he won and threaten Drew that he can be number one or keep teasing him about cashing in the MITB briefcase. On the other hand, if I were Dominik Mysterio, I would be upset about how he was eliminated in the loss. Could we see Mysterio vs. Miz? Or a tag team match Murphy and Dominik vs. Morrison and Miz?
Another champion that needs an opponent is Asuka. Asuka lost to Sasha Banks and may seek to validate her status as the champion. One opponent that comes to mind is Reckoning. Reckoning is the new name of Mia Yim (formerly known in NXT). She attacked Dana Brooks by putting her out of commission for Survivor Series. Reckoning has elevated her role as the top heel in Raw. Could she confront Asuka? Other opponents to consider is Peyton Royce. With Zelina Vega's firing and Bianca Belair is in Smackdown, the rumor around the wrestling community is that of Peyton Royce to challenge Asuka. Could Royce get the push for a title match?
Tonight, it will be exciting to see how things will unfold for the road to TLC.
