With only two weeks left until Survivor Series, RAW and SmackDown are almost ready to fight each other. Both brands have had a series of qualifying matches to identify members of their men’s and women’s teams for the event, with much of the pitch now known.
RAW’s five-woman lineup is complete, with Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke and Lana representing the Red brand. Meanwhile, SmackDown still needs to fill three spots in their women’s team, with Bianca Belair and Ruby Riott already eligible for Survivor Series.
The male team RAW currently has four strong members. AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Braun Strowman and Sheamus are still participating. The SmackDown men̵7;s team has one slot left, with the men’s team SmackDown in a similar situation. Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin and Seth Rollins all made it through the qualifiers last week.
There are plenty of names on the SmackDown list that can join Team Blue at Survivor Series, some more likely than others. Here are the five Superstars who could take the final spot on SmackDown’s men’s team at Survivor Series.
# 5 Chad Gable can make an impact on SmackDown
Free from the shackles of that dreadful Shorty G gimmick, Chad Gable could instantly become a player in the top mid lane on SmackDown. He is able to do just that, thanks to his flawless on-stage skill and entertaining personality. Gable is coming soon and hopefully WWE will invest properly in him.
One way for the company to prove they are behind Gable is to put him in a 10-man elimination match at Survivor Series. His role does not need to be too great, but just enough to show the world how good he can be when given the chance.
It’s also worth noting that Gable was part of Team SmackDown last year, despite being called Shorty G. That said, many other Superstars have a higher chance of representing SmackDown at Survivor Series.
But depending on what stories WWE wants to tell each of them, Chad Gable really has an outside opportunity to get the Blue brand’s five-man team into RAW.
