In case you were struggling to keep up with WWE's crazy schedule, Survivor Series is just under two weeks away and we are only two weeks removed from Evolution and five days past Crown Jewel.

The WWE are also touring the UK and Europe at present and with only two weeks worth of shows to build to Survivor Series, they have to act fast.

On Monday, acting general manager Baron Corbin named Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman and himself - the team captain - on Team Raw for their traditional showdown with SmackDown.

Of course, one man is missing from the tradition five-on-five matchup and with Corbin and Strowman at deep odds, one has to think one of those men will not partake in the match.

SmackDown emanates live from the MEN Arena in Manchester on Tuesday and there's a solid chance that Shane McMahon will also reveal the bulk of, if not all of SmackDown's team.

However, PWInsider claims to already know the participants.

Their report suggests that Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre - as we already know - will be joined by Bobby Lashley & Kurt Angle with Baron Corbin serving as captain.

That's interesting because Kurt Angle was comprehensively beaten by McIntyre on Monday Night to earn his place on the team, so how is he going to earn his place next week? And why will Corbin be stepping aside? How will Angle work with McIntyre? Plenty of questions.

Their sources have SmackDown’s side looking like Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, The Miz & Randy Orton, with Shane McMahon obviously in their corner.

That's a plausible, strong side for the Blue Brand but one has to wonder why Shane McMahon, after just being crowned 'the best in the world' wouldn't take part in the match.

The chances of Randy Orton playing nice with anyone appear to be slim, too. Still, that's a star-studded match that fans can look forward to, but Raw seems to have more heavy-hitters at their disposal.

The ladies sides have yet to be revealed, all we do know is that on the Raw side, Alexa Bliss will be a ringside captain and she will be picking her team next week.
