Survivor Series is one month away and the plans for the event are still relatively vague due to RAW having one more PPV to go before the event.

TLC is this Sunday and it will see the highly anticipated return of the Shield along with several other big feuds from the RAW brand.

Smackdown vs RAW

RAW's Universal Championship and their champion Brock Lesnar won't be seen at TLC but he will be returning after the show.

Following TLC, it will be full steam ahead to Survivor Series and the first match could be confirmed as early as next Monday.

Tuesday's night's episode of Smackdown Live saw WWE Champion Jinder Mahal lay down a very interesting challenge for Survivor Series.

Mahal told a story about his recent trip to India in which he was asked who he will be facing next.

This led to Mahal declaring that there is no-one left to challenge him on Smackdown live and that his next aim is a man who is assigned to Monday nights.

Mahal has officially laid down the challenge to Brock Lesnar in a match that would see the top champions from Smackdown and RAW collide.

The match has been rumoured recently and with Mahal's challenge has come the return of the Beast Incarnate.

It was revealed later on Smackdown that Lesnar will return to the WWE for the first time since September on Monday.

Last seen in his title defense against Braun Strowman at No Mercy, Lesnar's return will certainly bring with it some interesting consequences.

Set to address the challenge issued by Mahal, Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman could be set to confirm Survivor Series' first match.

Two brands collide

While the WWE Champion could be set to battle the Universal Champion, recent rumours seem to suggest that there could be more than one inter-brand clash at the event.

While Mahal was confronted by AJ Styles on Smackdown, the two are not confirmed to be in a feud just yet.

Lesnar has been absent for the past month and TLC will see no match for the Intercontinental or Tag Team Championships.

With a distinct lack of title Championship feuds on both RAW and Smackdown, Survivor Series could bring together some matches that have not been seen for a long time.
