The Men’s SmackDown Team for Survivor Series has been officially announced on the latest edition of WWE Backstage.

We previously named 5 Superstars who are to represent the SmackDown men’s division in the 5-on-5-on-5 brawl against RAW and NXT at Survivor Series. Our prediction hit the bull’s eye except for one name.

Here’s the official Men’s SmackDown Team for Survivor Series:

  • Roman Reigns (Captain)
  • Braun Strowman
  • King Corbin
  • Shorty G
  • Mustafa Ali

On the other hand, Sasha Banks will lead the SmackDown Women’s Team to battle alongside Carmella, Dana Brooke and two other Superstars yet to be announced.

Now that both RAW & SmackDown Men’s Teams have been revealed, NXT should watch out for any potential invasion tonight at Full Sail.

Meanwhile, Johnny Gargano is set to miss out on a spot in the NXT Men’s Team due to neck injury.

Gargano was scheduled to collide with Finn Balor at TakeOver on November 23rd, but WWE has officially pulled that match from the card.

Fans expected Johnny Wrestling to captain the Men’s NXT Team at Survivor Series but that won’t be happening anymore. Given Gargano is ruled out with injury, there’s only one man worthy enough to take his spot, and that’s the longest-reigning NXT Champion Balor himself.

While the inclusion of Balor in the team definitely increases NXT’s chances of winning the men’s 5-on-5-on-5 showdown by a wide margin, it doesn’t seem like he is keen on assisting his brandmates.

Last week, Balor teased a potential Bullet Club reunion with The OC, leading fans to wonder whether he’s going to sabotage the same brand he once loved the most.

Which brand owns the night at Survivor Series is anyone’s guess, but Gargano’s exclusion from the squad has slimmed NXT’s chances of coming out on top in Chicago.
