Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Chris Jerico def. The New Day
Survivor Series is Sunday and the name of the game, ladies and gentlemen, is teamwork. After pitting various fractions of Raw’s Survivor Series teams against each other, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley saw at least one set of rivals put their differences aside to get a much-needed win. Good thing, too, as Stephanie promised “changes” for any partners who couldn’t get it together.
If there is one crew that does NOT possess The Power of Positivity, it is Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho and Braun Strowman. But that doesn’t mean they can’t win. The craftiest, nastiest and, well, brawniest members of Raw’s Men’s Survivor Series team managed to find unity against the record-setting Raw Tag Team Champions, leading to an impressive win over ya boys.
Perhaps the teams’ pre-match displays had clued the WWE Universe in to a different outcome — New Day hawked their merch in unison while their foes squabbled over scarves. But if anyone held out hope for New Day, it was dashed the second Strowman took out Big E and Kofi Kingston, leaving Xavier Woods to the mercy of his collected foes. A running powerslam from Strowman ended the match, but a Pedigree to Rollins from Jericho put an end to the victors’ partnership. At least until Sunday.
