10. The Women's Elimination Match Will Open The Show
Survivor Series' card isn't all that huge but everything it does have on there is all about brand supremacy. Whether it be the champion vs. champion showdowns or the elimination matches, all of the contests revolve around the same thing. However, in spite of their similarities, not all of them feel as major as some of the others.
Of all the Raw vs. SmackDown matches of the evening, it does feel like the women's five-on-five tag team elimination match hasn't been dealt the best of cards. It's missing two of the women who were initially supposed to be in the match and instead of building a proper story, it's been all about Nia Jax slamming Lana through a table on Raw. With that in mind, don't be surprised if it's chosen to open the show.
It doesn't have quite as big a main-event feel as some of the other matches because of the poor storytelling leading up to it, but the fact that it is a five-on-five tag team elimination match at an event built upon five-on-five tag team elimination matches - and the fact that it's all about brand supremacy - suggest there's enough there to make it a credible opener. Here's hoping the action on the night allows these women to transcend the poor plotting leading up to the event.
