1. AJ Styles is the sole survivor of the men’s match

While Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are the highlight of Monday nights, Tuesdays belong to AJ Styles and I’d have no problem saying that there is nobody better in wrestling than the WWE World Champion.

There are a ton of big names in the traditional Survivor Series match for the guys and one could likely make an argument on why each of these ten men should be the highlight of this 5-on-5 contest.

On Team RAW, I’ve already mentioned what I think should happen with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. We know that Braun Strowman is being groomed for something big in the future but I think we also all know that he’s nowhere near ready for the spotlight. I think he’ll have somewhat of a coming out party at the Royal Rumble but I think he gets counted out at some point during the middle of this match to avoid a pinfall loss. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he and Bray Wyatt both get counted out as they fight in the ringside area. As for Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, they’ll obviously get mixed up with Dean Ambrose at some point, and if anyone from RAW does happen to come out on top, it might be these the two former Shield members.

Ambrose could be a part of a winning pair along with AJ Styles to help continue their journey towards their TLC match in a few weeks, but again, being in the ring with Reigns and Rollins is the real draw for Ambrose at Survivor Series.

Honestly, I have no idea where they’re going with this Randy Orton thing right now so I suppose he’s the wildcard in this scenario, but at this point in his career, it’s unlikely that he needs or gets a big win like this. And there’s just no way that Shane McMahon gets a win in this match, right? So that leaves the Phenomenal AJ Styles.

Since his debut back at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, Styles has been absolutely perfect. His heel turn came at just the right time and his feud with John Cena has easily been the best program of the year; it’ll likely continue at some point when Cena returns. His work as the champion has been nothing short of, well, phenomenal. Even this program with Ambrose and James Ellsworth has worked. There’s not many other people that could pull that off but he has and his ego would only get bigger and make him more entertaining if he were to able to be the sole survivor of what could end up being one of the best traditional Survivor Series matches in history.

These are just a few of many things that could happen on Sunday night in Toronto. Will we get any closer to a Shield reunion? Can the tag team match deliver? Will Triple H get involved with Seth Rollins? Will The Undertaker begin his WrestleMania 33 program at the event where he debuted 26 years ago?

WWE has proven time and again that anything can happen at Survivor Series. I guess we’ll find out if this comes to pass once again Sunday night on the WWE Network.
