When it comes to the WWE and their pay-per-views, there are four big ones that come to mind: WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series. On Sunday, Staples Center will be home to the 32nd annual Survivor Series pay-per view.
With so much emphasis on Crown Jewel over the last month or so, it seems as though the build up for the Survivor Series card in 2018 kind of went by the wayside.
However, we’re here to provide some of that buildup, so let’s breakdown the Survivor Series odds.
Brock Lesnar (Universal Champion) (-300) vs. Daniel Bryan (WWE Champion) (+220)
After refusing to go to Saudi Arabia, it’s kind of surprising to see Bryan go over on AJ Styles on the Smackdown go-home show, unless of course they want Bryan to get ragdolled here.
A similar thing happened last year with Jinder Mahal losing to Styles prior to Survivor Series.
Just from a logical point-of-view, Bryan has literally no chance here. I mean, seriously, Lesnar is like five times the size of Bryan and, sure, it’s scripted, but make it, you know, somewhat real.
Easy money here.
Ronda Rousey (Raw Women’s Champion) (-1000) vs. Charlotte Flair (+500)
After getting clocked in the face by Nia Jax on Monday Night Raw, Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is unable to compete. Thus, Charlotte Flair will step up to face Rousey.
Once again, kind of like Lesnar, Charlotte is a good-sized female athlete, but again, this a is a UFC fighter. Maybe they could make this match go a bit longer because of the size difference, but Rousey should win here, too.
Shinsuke Nakamura (United States Champion) (-140) vs. Seth Rollins (Intercontinental Champion) (+100)
I’m surprised Nakamura is the favorite here, and here’s why: Dean Ambrose.
I think it would be interesting to see Ambrose take out Nakamura to give Rollins the loss and then go after Rollins. That way, he loses and gets his butt kicked by Ambrose.
Team Raw: Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler (+100) vs. Team Smackdown: Shane McMahon, The Miz, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio (-140)
This is a great opportunity for the WWE to boost Strowman up again as being invincible, only to pull the rug out from under him once he reaches the pinnacle for the Universal Championship.
I’ll take Raw here, with Strowman doing the most damage.
Team Raw: Natalya, Nia Jax, Tamina Snuka, Mickie James, Ruby Riott (+100) vs. Team Smackdown: Asuka, Naomi, Carmella, Sonya Deville, TBD (-140)
With Charlotte being bumped to the match with Ronda, the Smackdown side is currently short a woman. Maybe they bring back Trish Stratus or someone to fill in? Maybe Paige can compete? Who knows.
Either way, there’s just too much firepower on the Raw side once again here.
10-on-10 Tag Team Elimination Match
Team Smackdown: The New Day, The Usos, Gallows & Anderson, SAnitY, The Colons (-280) vs. Team Raw: Roode & Gable, The B Team, The Revival, The Ascension, Lucha House Party (-180)
First of all, I’d pay to not watch this match. What a total cluster you-know-what. The Raw tag teams look horrible compared to some of the name recognition on Smackdown.
Smackdown picks up a win.
The Bar (Smackdown Tag Team Champions) (+180) vs. AOP (Raw Tag Team Champions) (-240)
A great opportunity to keep pushing AOP over a tag team that seems to have been around for a decade. AOP wins here.
Buddy Murphy (Cruiserweight Champion) (-200) vs. Mustafa Ali (+150)
I do not watch 205 Live and it may be safe to say maybe only a fraction of the viewing audience cares about this match. Champ retains.
