WWE confirmed on this week's episode of SmackDown that a 'traditional' brand warfare between Raw, SmackDown and NXT superstars will take place at the upcoming Survivor Series, with Seth Rollins named at the close of the show as the captain of the red brand.
The company made an official announcement about 'The Architect's captaincy on their official website:
"Monday Night Rollins is ready to go for Team Raw at Survivor Series – who’s ready to join him?
"After being named the first participant for the red brand, Seth Rollins is set to address the WWE Universe as he awaits the reveal of his teammates. By the end of Monday night, the full Team Raw lineup will be complete.
"The Beastslayer is attempting to move past the loss of his Universal Title at WWE Crown Jewel and lead Raw to brand supremacy at Survivor Series. With Survivor Series inching closer by the day, the rest of the Raw Superstars will be set on making an impression and earning the golden opportunity to join Rollins in the inter-brand battle.
"Tune in Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network to see which red-brand Superstars step up to accompany Rollins in the war against SmackDown and NXT."

He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
