The build to WWE Survivor Series is heating up, and ahead of the show on November 26th, everyone involved is hoping to gain a WarGames advantage.
From the WWE Raw roster, WWE Survivor Series will see Bayley, Dakota Kai, IYO SKY, Nikki Cross, and Rhea Ripley face off against Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Mia Yim, and a mystery opponent that has yet to be named, although some reports indicate that plans are in place for a top star to fill that spot (more information is available here, but be aware that the report contains potential spoilers).
The teams first began to take shape when the three members of Damage CTRL challenged Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss to a bout inside WarGames, and Nikki Cross soon joined the heel team after shedding her identity as Nikki ASH and returning to Raw. Last week, Damage CTRL approached the newly-returned Mia Yim to join their team, but Yim declined as she said she didn’t have anything against Belair, Asuka, or Alexa Bliss.
Later in the episode, after IYO SKY was able to defeat Dana Brooke, Yim declared that she would instead be joining the babyface team. In retaliation, Rhea Ripley announced that she would be the fifth member of Damage CTRL’s team as she wants to get her hands on Mia Yim, who returned to WWE Raw and aligned with The OC in their fight against The Judgment Day two weeks ago.
Now, on the November 21st episode of WWE Raw taking place at the MVP Arena in Albany, NY, Asuka and Rhea Ripley are scheduled for a singles match that will see each woman attempt to gain the WarGames advantage for their teams, meaning that their team will be the first to have multiple competitors enter the cage.
On WWE SmackDown, it was confirmed that Kevin Owens would join Drew McIntyre and the Brawling Brutes as the fifth member to fight against The Bloodline. The members of the men’s WarGames match are set to make appearances on WWE Raw as well.
