SmackDown has named its men's team for Survivor Series elimination match

Roman Reigns

We are less than two weeks away from the event that proves which brand in WWE is the strongest - Survivor Series.

There's an added nuance though when it comes to this year, as for the first time, NXT has been included as a third brand into the Survivor Series picture.

WWE's travel woes coming back from Crown Jewel gave a chance for NXT stars to shine on SmackDown on November 1, and they've continued to show up on the blue brand and on Raw in recent weeks.

The addition of NXT means we're getting an influx of Triple Threat matches on November 24, however we aren't getting a match between the world champions of each brand.

That would mean Brock Lesnar, Bray Wyatt and Adam Cole would go to war if they were, but instead Lesnar will face Rey Mysterio for the WWE Championship, and Wyatt may end up facing Daniel Bryan.

The show-piece of the evening will be the men's elimination match - where each brand will send five of their best men to war with the victors taking home the bragging rights for their show.

It looks like qualifying matches have been thrown out of the window this year, as Raw's team was revealed during the show on Monday - Seth Rollins will captain a side that also includes Randy Orton, Kevin Owens, Ricochet and Drew McIntyre.

Pretty formidable you'd have to say, and now SmackDown have been the next brand to have their line-up revealed to the world.

SmackDown and Raw have now both filled out their Survivor Series teams

Roman Reigns will lead the team, and by his side will be Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman, Mustafa Ali and Shorty G.

It's not as star-studded as the Monday Night Raw team, but there's a mix of power, skill and athleticism in there.

That just leaves NXT to pick their five, and you'd imagine the likes of Adam Cole, Tommaso Ciampa and Matt Riddle will have to team up with each other - despite all of them being a part of WarGames the night before.

We may also see Finn Balor on Team NXT, in what may be his first match in WWE as a heel, or maybe even the United Kingdom Champion WALTER, who faced Seth Rollins on Raw.

Whatever NXT's team shapes up to be, this match is going to be absolute must-see!
