Although the match will be a heated and interesting affair due to their heavily reported animosity, the result of the bout ultimately won’t mean anything.
The case remains the same throughout the event with all matches fighting for nothing but “brand supremacy”.
Since 2016’s brand split, RAW and SmackDown go to war in the lead up to Survivor Series in a battle for bragging rights. The concept has waned over the years with the PPV taking place so soon after the draft meaning Superstar’s affiliation to either brand is slim at best.
The Man recently sat down with Vicente Beltran and talked about Survivor Series needing higher stakes.
“Yeah, I mean, that would be helpful. The whole brand supremacy is a little outdated. But at the same time, we’re all competitors, and you always want to be the best, and whatever it is, whatever carrot they dangle, you always want to be the best.
Whether it’s here, the winner gets a freakin banana. Like, well, I want that freakin banana. I want to prove that I deserve that banana. So you always want to be the best, so I think whatever the logic is, you can make it work when you’re a competitive human, which we all are. You don’t get to WWE if you’re not competitive.”
