It’s the final stop before the last Big 4 WWE show of the year!

Survivor Series continues to have tons of wrenches thrown into it at the 11th hour. Turns out Alexa Bliss will be facing Charlotte on Sunday after she beat Natalia for the Smackdown Women’s title. Between this, Roman Reigns returning, and Jason Jordan being replaced on the RAW team, there’s a lot going on. But is all of this serving to make for a better show, or is it just showing how haphazardly WWE is putting this together?

Speaking of Roman he and the Shield finally had their first match as a unit in years. They’re all set to face the New Day in few days. Should they have wait for a bit longer for that Shield reunion? How about that RAW invasion? What are the stakes as we approach Sunday?

And how excited is Danielle to have a fourth season of Lucha Underground confirmed?!

Main Event

Triple H is officially the fifth member of Monday Night RAW’s Survivor Series team! Between him, Kurt Angle, Shane McMahon and John Cena, that’s FOUR part-time wrestlers split across each team. Is this the best way to utilize a partite performer in WWE? What is? Should a part-timer ever be champion? We’ll talk about it.

So much for that Jinder Mahal/Brock Lesnar match that got built up for two weeks!

WWE went ahead and decided to pull the trigger on AJ Styles winning the WWE Championship for the second time in his WWE career. But where does the Phenomenal One go from here? And does the Modern Day Maharaja get that title back before the India tour in December?

And how about Chris Jericho! He’s set to face Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January! What could this mean for his future in WWE? And will the New Day face the Shield? Is The Bar going to lose to the Usos?

Misandry Corner

Chyna was one of the most dominant figures of the attitude era. She regularly was portrayed as tougher than any of the guys and even managed to become the Intercontinental Champion! So is her excommunication from WWE lore warranted? We’ll take a look at some of her greatest moments.

WHAT A CRAZY SEVEN DAYS IT’S BEEN!

We were all set to have TLC show built around the first official match of the Shield 2.0 and a Demon vs. Sister Abigail encounter. But a sudden viral meningitis outbreak meant that the WWE had to reach deep into the deck to keep fans happy.

Kurt Angle made his official return to replace Roman Reigns in their main event match and Finn Balor finally got to wrestle AJ Styles for the first time ever! We’ll break down what we thought about WWE’s last-minute scramble.

Plus, how about Alicia Fox the last few shows? She’s stepped up in a big way to prove how much charisma she’s got and crazied her way to the Captain of the RAW Survivor Series team! And what about Kane’s first singles match on RAW? Or Sami Zayn’s adorably obnoxious skank routine? It’s all here and so much more!

Main Event

Now that Smackdown has officially put RAW #UnderSiege, it’s time to take a look at the classic invasion angle. Which ones throughout the course of history worked best? Are they completely ruined if the follow-up doesn’t work? And will this do anything to generate some interest in Survivor Series?

What a month for friendship!

The Shield has made their full return to form this week, complete with tactical vests, NATO music and through-the-crowd entrance. But now they’ll have to face a 5th person this Sunday: The returning Devil’s favorite demon, Kane! Its the excitement of a Shield reunion enough to justify these constant additional antics? We’ll talk it out!

And Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens have the sort of friendship that we could all hope to achieve. Their added characters might even be enough to elevate Smackdown beyond the mirth that it’s been stuck in for the last few months!

Plus, a look at AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal, Mahal vs. Brock Lesnar and why there are so few matches involving Tables, Ladders or Chairs before this Sunday’s TLC show.

Main Event

It’s looking more and more like Neville is completely done with the WWE. He was arguably 205 Live’s biggest star attraction, so what does this say about WWE’s purple brand? With such a thriving indie scene, how many more cruiserweight are going to follow suit and leave a brand that has an obvious ceiling?

Nothing is incorruptible in this world. Not even Sami Zayn!

Sami officially decided that friendship is more important than his principle when he saved Kevin Owens from Shane McMahon at Hell in a Cell. Where could this lead his character? We’ll talk about it.

Plus, what a great match The Usos and New Day had! What fresh feuds await them now that this rivalry is over? And why Emma the first sacrificial lamb to Asuka? Will Kalisto amount to anything as the cruiserweight champion? What on Earth is Sister Abigail?

Main Event

After three years as separate superstars, the Shield is back together again! But what will this new iteration of the most famous faction in recent memory look like? Where do they go now that they’re back on the side of justice with individual aspirations? We’ll help you figure it out!
