On the mens’ side, Kevin Owens and Jey Uso have been confirmed after their victories on Friday’s episode over Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan respectively.

Uso’s main event win, after which he turned heel with a vicious and emotional attack on Bryan, was an especially strong moment in making the former multi-time tag team champion look like a serious threat.

The opposing Raw team is currently 60% complete with AJ Styles, Keith Lee and Sheamus all winning qualifying matches last Monday.

On the women’s side, Bianca Belair confirmed her spot on her brand’s team in her SmackDown debut match with a triple threat victory over Natalya and Billie Kay.

Raw’s female team has already been named in its entirety and will consist of Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke and Lana.

Survivor Series will take place from the WWE ThunderDome at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. As things stand it could be the last PPV event held as part of WWE’s residency in that building.

The event will be broadcast on the WWE Network and the currently confirmed card is as follows:

  • WWE Champion Randy Orton vs Universal Champion Roman Reigns
  • SmackDown Champion Sasha Banks vs. Raw Champion Asuka
  • Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits
  • Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn vs. United States Champion Bobby Lashley
