WWE SURVIVOR SERIES LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
Those who would take the lives of men set fire to the staves as the master spoke through them. Born of wax, cast in clay, a horrible likeness that bares your name. Rip the eyes out, throw them away, scatter the ashes conjured by his slaves. As mind and body drift further apart, the candle burns down and stops your heart, but me, I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The pre-show opens with Jonathan Coachman welcoming us to the show and introducing his panel, consisting of Jerry “the King” Lawler, Beth Phoenix, and David Otunga to start. They shill for the WWE Network and run the card down in general before kicking into our usual video package / panel discussion cycle, starting with Daniel Bryan vs. Brock Lesnar.
Discussion of the ending of SmackDown follows, and we go backstage where Alexa Bliss addresses the women of Raw and pledges to beat them at their own game and saying that winning isn’t enough, she wants total humiliation. Nia Jax asks if she saw what she did to Becky Lynch’s face, Ruby Riott taunts Natalya about her dad’s sunglasses... AND NEIDHART POUNCES HER!
The other Raw women pull them apart and Alexa tells Ruby and Nattie that if they can’t get along they’re off the team! They continue shouting as we cut away, and the panel finishes discussing the women’s eliminator. General managers Paige and Baron Corbin join the panel, replacing Phoenix and Otunga, and shortly they’re interrupted by Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley.
Rush hypes his man up at length and shows his butt off again before leaving and allowing the panel to resume discussion of the Raw vs. SmackDown aspect of things. Onto discussion of Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey after the general managers take their leave, and then we go backstage for an interview with Flair.
She says she’s the only one who can hold up the four fingers by birthright and make it mean something, and she’s gonna walk out there with her chin held high and prove that even the Baddest Woman on the Planet will bow down to the Queen.
Backstage, Naomi is giving her teammates a pep talk in her role as acting captain and says they have Raw on the ropes already and they have to remember to stay united through it all, even with their newest member... R-Truth?! He thanks her for the honor and Naomi points out that he’s not a woman, to which he asks why you have to bring science into it.
Mandy Rose is the actual fifth member and she says she knows they’re all upset with her but she’s not gonna throw the biggest night of her career away by fighting with any of them tonight. Sonya Deville asks them to give her a chance and Naomi goes back into captain mode, hyping them up. Truth leads a cheer and they split. The panel discusses that eliminator and then the Cruiserweight Championship match after, with DRAKE MAVERICK joining the panel.
DRAKE’s presence neatly segues into discussion of Authors of Pain vs. the Bar.
We get a “coming soon” vignette for NXT’s Lars Sullivan after a short break for house ads. Booker T joins the panel in Lawler’s stead for the second hour of the preshow. They run the card down for those just tuning in and then shill for the WWE Network a little on top of it before going back over some of the matches for a bit more in-depth discussion as well.
Big E does the deal and the New Day make their entrance for a promo. Xavier Woods begins the spiel about Raw and SmackDown going head to head but stops and repeats “Monday Night Raw” a few times as the crowd boos. Kofi Kingston asks what better to kick it off than the SmackDown tag teams? They give all their teammates big introductions, and then the Usos welcome Team Raw to the SmackDown Penitentiary.

Alexa Bliss is interviewed backstage about the replacements for Ruby Riott and Natalya.
She says she needs two individuals who can function as a unit, which is why she’s chosen Sasha Banks and Bayley to join the team. Banks says they don’t owe her anything, and after they win for Team Raw, they’re coming after every single one of them. Bayley says SmackDown crossed a line, so they’re not doing it for them, but to prove that Raw is the most dominant brand.
The pre-show panel runs the card down for us again before finishing up with discussion of the men’s eliminator and a round of final predictions. We cut to the locker rooms where the women are getting ready for their eliminator to close the pre-show out.

Seth Rollins is interviewed backstage about his victory earlier tonight.
He’s not gonna lie, he’s been focused on Dean Ambrose these past few weeks, and he feels very lucky to have come away with a victory but he’s got an ice bath and a couple cold ones waiting. He’s informed that he’ll be defending the Intercontinental Championship against Dean at TLC and he says it’s been a while. Ambrose has been hiding since he twisted the knife, in parking lots and behind his excuses, but at TLC he won’t have anything left to hide behind.
