Survivor Series 2020 will take place on November 22nd with the brand vs brand theme intact. While the company has already booked the lineup of Raw, they have a few rooms when it comes to booking the SmackDown side. Four spots were taken by Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin, and Seth Rollins. Three spots are left on the SmackDown Women’s team.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the SmackDown brand has a few options left to fill up their side, but those options are limited. The chances have already been narrowing down if the Survivor Series 2020 qualifying match participants as well as the loser names are considered.
WWE Survivor Series 2020: Spoiler On Remaining Smackdown Team Members
Observer previously noted that “the key people open to those three spots look to be Big E, Otis, Seth Rollins, Lars Sullivan, Rey Mysterio, and Murphy.” Among these names, Rollins had already earned his spot at Survivor Series 2020 while Mysterio squandered the opportunity. It is likely that the fifth remaining spot will belong to either Sullivan or Big E as they both are likely to receive a big push.
Otis isn’t likely to get a spot as she has just lost Money In the Bank briefcase. Vince McMahon had dumped the idea of pushing him or Tucker. Lars Sullivan is set for a monstrous push while WWE doesn’t really have a plan around Big E. If Lars gets a spot on the blue brand then chances of a win for SmackDown at Survivor Series 2020 will be bigger. Also, it could set up a face-to-face meeting with Braun Strowman.
On this past episode of SmackDown, Ruby Riott was added to the SmackDown Women’s Team at Survivor Series 2020. Sasha Banks successfully defended her SmackDown Women’s Title against Bayley to end the feud for good. But it doesn’t mean she’s getting the night off at Survivor Series 2020.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter informed that “the obvious pick is Bayley” for a spot on the SmackDown women’s team. It was said the selection is pretty “obvious” provided she didn’t beat The Boss to regain the title.
It was also informed that Drew McIntyre was the one to capture the remaining spot on the men’s Survivor Series 2020 team for RAW. He was also supposed to be the Team Captain for RAW. But now a second chance match has been confirmed for this week’s Raw without McIntyre in the lineup. We wonder what Vince McMahon and Co have in-store for the King of Claymore Country on the November 22nd PPV.
