Which match will be the main event of Survivor Series 2017?

Every time a WWE pay-per-view (PPV) is on the horizon, I'm foolish enough to predict the match order on the card.

In most cases, selecting the main event of a PPV is an easy call. It's usually the WWE Championship match, the Universal Championship match, or a special attraction match. But I'm looking at this upcoming Survivor Series card and I'm not sure which match is going to headline that event.

On the one hand, there is the obvious choice of Universal Champion Brock Lesnar going one-on-one against WWE Champion AJ Styles. Not only is this a champion versus champion match, but it is also a special attraction dream match that many fans have been waiting years to see. Furthermore, Lesnar and Styles are two of the biggest wrestling superstars alive today. What's the point of either championship even existing if they aren't important enough to headline a PPV when represented together in one major match? This one checks off all the boxes and should be a no-brainer choice to headline the card.

On the other hand, there's a much more developed story leading into the the men's 5-on-5 elimination match featuring John Cena, Kurt Angle, and Shane McMahon. This match is also a special attraction, and Kurt Angle's job hangs in the balance. Stephanie and Shane McMahon have gone out of their way to emphasize that this match is the most important one for determining brand supremacy at Survivor Series. Babyface ass-kicker Braun Strowman is also here, and Kane will probably interfere and try to murder him again. Disgruntled SmackDown superstars Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn could also show up and directly affect the match outcome. Bobby Roode and Jason Jordan are here because 10 spots are a lot to fill and sometimes lower-tier options will get the call. The bottom line is that this one is going to be a chaotic spectacle with several important stories being told throughout its duration.

Only one of these matches can be the main event of Survivor Series. Which one will it be, Cagesiders?
