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?

This year the WWE has really been pushing the boundaries of how much wrestling they can squeeze into a single week.

NXT TakeOver Toronto aired on Saturday featuring a ton of great matches, including what Hal thinks may have been the match of the year. NXT is clearly in a reloading stage right now, but the team explains why they’re still on board for the brand.

Plus: Survivor Series, the forgotten WWE big four pay-per-view, happened on Sunday. And everyone, including the Nation of Conversation, has something to say about the finish to Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg match. And with the show featuring three tradition Survivor Series elimination matches, has the concept been revitalized or run into the ground?

But before all of that, we just had to talk about Lucha Underground’s Aztec Warfare 3. Sexy Star became the first women to ever hold the Lucha Underground Championship and Danielle was live in the temple to see it happen.
