Tonight at Survivor Series, Team Raw (Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Nia Jax and Alicia Fox) take on Team SmackDown (Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella and Alexa Bliss) in a traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match. Who will survive? The Diva Dirt team weighs in:
Abir: This one will be a great match. We’ll see each lady get their time to shine, though with a predictable end. I predict the order of elimination to be Alicia Fox, Carmella, Alexa Bliss, Bayley, Naomi, Nia Jax, Nikki Bella, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair will be a sole survivor and give Team RAW the victory.
Alex: As the Diva-Dirt RAW Reporter, it’s only right that I support my brand! While I’d love for some change to happen and have SD win, RAW just has more ‘protected’ women… aka everyone bar Alicia. Getting a clean pin over any of the other RAW women is going to cause a reaction, but needs to be done for a reason. Sure, I’d love to be proven wrong but Naomi eliminating Charlotte? Carmella eliminating Sasha? Becky eliminating Bayley? I just don’t see it happening… so for me, Team RAW taking the win with Bayley and Charlotte as the sole survivors.
Candace: As much as it pains me to say this, I see Team RAW winning this one.
Jack: As much as I want Team SmackDown to come it on top, I think WWE want to preserve Charlotte’s PPV streak, probably all the way until WrestleMania. With that in mind, I have Team RAW picking up the win. I imagine it will go down to Nikki and Charlotte, with Charlotte just doing enough to win, perhaps with help from Dana. Team RAW wins… sadly.
Josue: Team SmackDown may have gotten the last laugh before Survivor Series but my gut says that Team RAW will win bragging rights for their respective brand. Most likely with Charlotte and Bayley being the sole survivors.
Kyle: In a recent poll, fans have said they prefer the SmackDown women’s division. And I can’t disagree with that. The rosters are the same size but SmackDown utilizes their’s in a more unique way on a weekly basis. With all that being said, SmackDown will lose. Team RAW is supposed to have more “star power” with certain women in clear positions to be made to better that the majority of female talent. The biggest factor at play here comes down to one woman. The one woman WWE has pushed since the jump: Charlotte Flair. It will come down to her. With her incredible PPV record hanging in the balance, it will be interesting to see how it plays out for her. But history tells us that Toronto will bow down to the queen. Team RAW will win.
Matthew: While both teams has some combustible elements, this is pretty stacked lineup. RAW has a array of talent like Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alicia Fox and Nia Jax; SmackDown has a Murderers’ Row lineup that consists of Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Alexa Bliss and Naomi. I would pretty much say that Team SmackDown would get the win and have the distinction of being the better brand than RAW.
Stephanie: I fully support Team Blue but if power booking is any indication, Team RAW will win. On SmackDown there’s a clear pecking order and the women can shuffle in and out of place because they’ve been booked to look like capable threats, everyone has a place. On Raw it’s all about 3HW and friends and no one stands on par to Charlotte or Sasha, they cast large shadows. Alicia and Nia are lucky if they are even mentioned, though Nia has been made to look like a monster I just don’t see them allowing SmackDown to overcome who the main roster believes to be the power players. I’d be very happy to be proven wrong though.
BREAKDOWN: 7 for Team RAW, 1 for Team SmackDown.
