Survivor Series is already shaping up to be one of the biggest events of the year, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg have already been announced to be headlining the pay-per-view and three huge traditional Survivor Series matches look set to be added to the card.
The three matches will pit five tag teams, five female superstars as well as the usual five male superstars in the elimination match. But now recent speculation suggests that WWE could be set to make the event even more interesting.
Vince McMahon could be set to not only award the winner of the event an official trophy to prove that they are the most dominant brand, but they could also be given the opportunity to choose three superstars from the loser's roster to switch over to their brand.

Despite the fact that WWE has always promoted Monday Night Raw as their flagship show, it seems that SmackDown has been the brand that has been rated much higher in the ratings since the brand split was made official back in July.
Raw has been given the exclusive rights to the Cruiserweight Division and also has an extra hour to fill on Monday nights, but the blue brand are still the ones who are winning the ratings war.
Raw was given the first draft pick and more picks than SmackDown but this seems to have only been a hindrance to the red brand since they now have a lot of talent to juggle.
SMACKDOWN NEEDS TO WIN
As already stated, Raw is usually thought to be the most dominant brand when it comes to WWE TV, but SmackDown are the ones in dire need of new faces on their roster.
If the winner is given their pick of any three superstars then the likelihood would be that WWE will make Champions, number one contenders and first round draft picks exempt from being chosen which means that SmackDown could bring over more faces to help fill out their roster in the absence of John Cena and Dean Ambrose.
It seems both main event calibre superstars are set to take time away from the company heading into the new year which leaves SmackDown with limited options when it comes to stars taking their place. This could be an innovative way of WWE allowing more stars to switch brands and help create much more compelling storylines as part of a different roster.
