WWE Survivor Series 2016 full match previews: Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg, Raw vs. SmackDown, more!

Don't miss WWE's Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV), streamed live on WWE Network!

Live from Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, the thirtieth Survivor Series features Goldberg's return to WWE after more than a decade away in a video game-inspired showdown with Brock Lesnar.

It's also the first PPV to feature both Raw and SmackDown Superstars since SummerSlam, and the rivalry between the brands is a central theme. Shane McMahon not only challenged his sister Stephanie to a series of elimination tag matches pitting Team Blue against Team Red, but Shane O’Mac is anchoring the five-on-five men’s team. The commissioner is joined by World champ AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton (and mascot James Ellsworth) in battle against a Raw squad featuring Universal champ Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Braun Strowman.

Two other groups will fight it out in Survivor Series’ signature match-type. Women from Raw (Bayley, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax & Alicia Fox) will follow their champion Charlotte Flair when they face SmackDown captain Nikki Bella and her team of champ Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Naomi, Carmella & coach Natalya. And there almost won’t be enough room on the apron when Monday night’s tag team crew of New Day, Anderson & Gallows, Shining Stars, Enzo & Cass and Sheamus & Cesaro square off against SmackDown’s Heath Slater & Rhyno, American Alpha, Breezango, Hype Bros & the Usos.

Titles will be on the line in Toronto, and fitting in with the brand warfare theme, it will be more than just who’ll wear the belt going forward which will be decided - but also what show the championship calls home! Sami Zayn will try to bring the Intercontinental title to Raw by beating current champ, SmackDown Superstar The Miz. And Brian Kendrick will be attempting to keep the whole cruiserweight division from having to move to Tuesdays when he fight Kalisto for his strap.

A two-hour long pre-show leads into the four hour main show, and features a panel discussion of all the matches, and probably (hopefully!) some matches. You can find the Kickoff on WWE Network and YouTube (among other places - like right here at cSs!).

The main broadcast will begin at 7PM ET/4PM PT. For all the ways to watch this annual event, sign-up at, or consult you cable or satellite provider.
