2020 WWE Survivor Series predictions, maps, matches, start time, date, PPV preview, location

The WWE Survivor Series crashes in the ThunderDome inside Orlando’s Amway Center on Sunday, as the company’s second-longest pay-per-view returns to the WWE network. The show revolves around a series of battles between Raw and SmackDown superstars, culminating in a battle between universal champion Roman Reigns and WWE champion Drew McIntyre in the anticipated main event.

The show, which has the theme “Best of the Best”, will also feature “Final Farewell” from The Undertaker. Deadman debuted in the 1990 Survivor Series, and after several hints of retirement, he will finally run out into the sunset after a month celebrating his 30 years in the WWE.

The Survivor Series begins at 1

9 ET with the show is expected to last about three hours, including the kickoff show, which starts one hour before the main card at. 18 CBS Sports will be with you all the way on Sunday with live results, highlights and analysis.

Let’s take a closer look at who our CBS Sports Experts predict will come out on top of the WWE Survivor Series.

2020 WWE Survivor Series predictions

Midcard Masters: Bobby Lashley (US, Raw) vs. Sami Zayn (Intercontinental, SD)

A Lashley victory makes plenty of sense, but Zayn has been presented as an opportunist since returning to the ring. There are external factors (retaliation) that can easily get involved and set up Zayn to steal another cheap win. There’s just more upside that Zayn gets a win and takes it out as the disgusting heel than that Lashley just picks up the seemingly obvious win. Choice: Sami Zayn wins – Brent Brookhouse

Since Lashley won the American title, he has done absolutely nothing with it. Although Zayn has been booked as a smart heel considering his opponents, I assume his luck runs out against Lashley, especially considering one would expect the MVP to be at the ring edge for the match. There’s no harm in Zayn losing cleanly for Lashley as he can easily talk himself out of it. In fact, Zayn-losing would be far more entertaining than him winning, and that would help Lashley look strong as he hopefully starts defending his title regularly. Choice: Bobby Lashley wins – Adam Silverstein

Take team champions: New Day (Raw) vs. Street Profits (SD)

Both teams winning here would be surprising and this is a match that is unlikely to have any impact on both teams in the long run. There are simply no other elements in play other than the possible involvement of Big E after weeks of merit that threw jokes about their upcoming match with Big E’s teammates. Big E, which cost the win the win after a minor distraction, could put something up in the future at SmackDown. Choice: New Day Winnings – Brookhouse

There are cases to be done for both teams that win this match. Profits have spoken far more crap than New Day, so they are the heel side and probably due to copupance. However, I can not imagine a scenario where New Day is placed in this match and does not insist on putting the younger champions over. The idea that the profits win and continue to fool Big E about it behind the scenes is too tempting. Select: Street Profits winner – Silverstein

Female champions: Asuka (Raw) vs. Sasha Banks (SD)

I like to lean a lot into factors from the outside that determine the results of this event, but that’s the only way to promote stories when you have a show against fire against fire. Banks have had problems with the recurring Carmella over the past few weeks, and a continuation of Carmella’s attacks that cost the banks victory keeps both women’s champions strong while continuing the program under construction. Choice: Asuka wins Brookhouse

I agree that if shenanigans were to come into play, it would make sense in the world for Asuka to win the match. After all, Carmella Banks had the number for the past two weeks and is poised to be the best challenger. However, Banks just won the SmackDown title at the culmination of a huge feud and runs high into this fight. Giving her a loss – even aided by distraction – would be unfortunate given the circumstances. A pure victory over Asuka would be huge for the banks’ profile. Choice: Sasha Banks wins – Silverstein

Elimination Battle for the Survivor Series for Women: Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Lacey Evans, Peyton Royce & Lana (Raw) vs. Bayley, Natalya, Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott (SD)

There’s the obvious story that WWE could book Lana, who is incapable of gaining the respect of any Team Raw peer who miraculously settles down as the only survivor in this match. While it could potentially work, it is not the best reservation, that is, placing the one wrestler on both teams who can benefit most from this match in Belair. You can still get Lana to win a few victories in surprising ways, while Belair impresses everywhere with numerous eliminations and is potentially the only survivor in the end. Plus, I’m extremely confident of the equivalent men’s elimination battle, so I think they’re going the other way here. Select: Team SmackDown wins – Silverstein (also Brookhouse)

Elimination Battle for Men’s Survivor Series: Team Raw (AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Braun Strowman, Riddle & Sheamus) vs. Team SmackDown (Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin, Seth Rollins & Otis)

With so much focus on the ruined dynamics among the Raw team, it feels right for them to end up getting together in the big moment and managing to win a victory – especially if the team’s last man stands, Styles is desperately trying to reconcile sit hold. Team SmackDown feels more like a collection of guys than a group involved in a mix of stories. Choice: Team Raw wins – Brookhouse (also Silverstein)

World Champions – Drew McIntyre (WWE, Raw) vs. Roman Reigns (Universal, SD)

With two strong champions where neither of them benefits from a loss, you return to looking for outs that provide a finish without hurting any man. McIntyre has to worry about potential commitment from Randy Orton, The Miz and maybe even The Fiend, which sets him up with lots of these outs. However, I think the ultimate deciding factor here will be a misguided attempt to help Reigns of Uso and continue the story of Uso doing things without the approval of the man he now serves. Choice: Drew McIntyre wins – Brookhouse

This is a difficult match to book and therefore predict. Reigns should by no means lose this given how strong he is booked since returning to WWE as a heel. McIntyre should by no means lose this as he just won the title back after dropping it to Randy Orton in less than 30 days. This is a WrestleMania or SummerSlam caliber main event with 10 days of construction on the Survivor Series. There are simply more opportunities to create paths that McIntyre can lose than Reigns. Choice: Roman Reigns wins – Silverstein
