Matches Set For WWE Survivor Series, Raw Captain Confirmed

What was reported earlier today has been confirmed by WWE just now on Raw -- It will be Raw vs. Smackdown as a number of champion vs. champion match ups will take place.

Raw GM Kurt Angle kicked off the show and announced the following for Survivor Series:

Lyra Valkyria On Facing Nia Jax: I Perform Best When The Stakes Are The Highest

- Smackdown Women's champion Natalya will battle Raw Women's champion Alexa Bliss.

- WWE United States champion Baron Corbin will face WWE Intercontinental champion The Miz

- Raw Tag Team champions Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will take on Smackdown Tag Team champions The Usos.

It is also expected that Brock Lesnar will accept Jinder Mahal's challenge for Survivor Series, thus making champion vs. champion matches for all of WWE's champions.

In a report from earlier today, PWInsider reported all of these matches were set to take place. In additon, John Cena is reportedly set to become the special guest referee in the Mahal/Lesnar main event.

Additionally, the report said that Braun Strowman is set to take on Kane. This would make sense given that Kane turned on Strowman during their match at TLC, eventually leading him and the rest of the heels stuffing him in a trash can and compacting him. 

Monday Night Raw also saw Sasha Banks emerge victorious over Bayley and Sasha Banks. As orderd by Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, she's now the captain of the Raw women team that will take on the Smackdown squad. 

Survivor Series will take place November 19 in Houston, Texas.
