WWE Survivor Series is a Thanksgiving tradition, and a frequently shocking one at that. Who could forget the Montreal Screwjob, the Corporate Champion or Goldberg's obliteration of Brock Lesnar? The last of WWE's annual 'Big Four' has its detractors, but the pay-per-view has also provided some of the most memorable moments in the history of professional wrestling.
The 31st edition of the second-longest running pay-per-view event in WWE history isn't expected to provide any shocks of the magnitude of those above, but it is shaping up to be a fascinating evening nonetheless. What could have been Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal has become Lesnar vs. AJ Styles, a genuine dream match that is a decade in the making. Fans have wanted this one for a long time.
The show is all about RAW vs. SmackDown, as red and blue collide to decide which brand is superior. WWE will set up the road to WrestleMania in Houston this Sunday, and certain things must happen for that journey to be a smooth one.
