Mick Foley is having second thoughts on putting the cruiserweight division on the line at Survivor Series

Although six matches have been announced for the Survivor Series pay-per-view, there are only two contests that actually have something on the line.

We have SmackDown Live battling Monday Night Raw in three traditional Survivor Series tag team matches, while Goldberg makes his eagerly anticipated in-ring return to take on Brock Lesnar.


On paper, the card looks incredible but four of the matches offer nothing but bragging rights, there’s nothing really at stake when one brand or one superstar loses in Toronto.

The Miz defends the Intercontinental Championship against Sami Zayn, and if Zayn wins then obviously the title switches brands.

Despite that, the match with the most on the line is the Cruiserweight Championship clash, where The Brian Kendrick puts his title on the line against SmackDown’s Kalisto.

Kalisto winning doesn’t just mean he takes the crown to the blue brand, but the entire roster will be moving to Tuesday’s, including the likes of Noam Dar, Cedric Alexander and TJ Perkins.

Based on a recent tweet from Raw general manager Mick Foley, he seems to be having buyer’s remorse over the stipulation, as his show could lose a division they were hyping up since the brand split.


He posted: “Just a thought: with @WWEDanielBryan &@mrbriankendrick going way back, maybe I shouldn’t have put the #CruiserweightDivision up for grabs.”

The history between Bryan and Kendrick has been well-documented, whether it’s been on-screen in the Cruiserweight Classic or in certain excerpts from Bryan’s autobiography, sharing stories of their time in the independent scene.

Most fans have remained vocal on the fact that the division rightfully belonged on SmackDown, as it was made the home once WCW closed its doors as we had the likes of Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero leading the line, so it can’t be ruled out that Kalisto could win.

However, based on Kendrick’s recent traits, it won’t be a surprise to see him get counted out; retaining his title but losing the match, sending the whole division to SmackDown.
