WWE Survivor Series is on later this week and it features matches with Raw vs. Smackdown Live.

The card has been changed dramatically over the past couple of weeks. Some notable names are missing from the show, but they could still appear to interfere in some matches.

There are seven matches on the main Survivor Series card along with one pre-show match.

The event is expected to be 4 hours long, so many of the matches will be given a lot of time. Without further ado, here are our predictions for the event.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship - Kalisto vs. Enzo Amore (c): The cruiserweight division has suffered a little bit after the departures of both Austin Aries and Neville. There are still some talented wrestlers in the division, but they are unable to showcase their full skills.

Kalisto is a great talent, although I still think WWE wants to keep the belt on Enzo Amore for the time being.

He's not the best in-ring worker, but he's an effective heel. Enzo will win this one possibly by cheating.

Intercontinental Champion The Miz (with Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas) vs. United States Champion Baron Corbin: This is an odd pairing because you have two heel characters facing one another.

Both are decent mid-card wrestlers, although their in-ring work is nothing spectacular.

It's hard to predict a winner because both men are likely wanting to cheat. I might say Baron Corbin will win this as the referee is likely going to chuck out Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas from ringside.

Team Raw (Kurt Angle, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and Triple H) vs. Team SmackDown (Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Bobby Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, and John Cena): This potentially could be the main event of the show as a lot is at stake here. If Team Raw loses, Kurt Angle will be fired as Raw GM. Both teams are stacked so it's hard to predict who might win.

Since Triple H was added, I think Raw will win this one. I feel Team Smackdown will lose thanks to interference from both Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

Both men are not on the card and will blame Shane McMahon for their current status. Triple H is likely to be the last man surviving pinning Randy Orton at the end.

Team Raw (Alicia Fox, Nia Jax, Asuka, Sasha Banks, and Bayley) vs. Team SmackDown (Becky Lynch, Carmella, Naomi, Tamina and TBA) (with Lana): Another Survivor Series style match, but this time featuring the women. Again, both teams are stacked with talent.

The last member of Smackdown is likely going to be Natalya.

Since Nia Jax and Asuka are on team Raw, I'm giving the edge to the red brand once again. Asuka never loses as she has remain undefeated ever since she debuted.

Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso): This is a last minute change because Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose were the original team going to face The Usos. Cesaro and Sheamus are a good team, although I think WWE favors The Usos a little bit more.

Again, this match is another heel vs. heel match so there's the potential both teams will not play by the rules. The Usos however have more momentum in my opinion.

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins) vs. The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods): This match is different than the others because we now have a babyface vs. babyface match.

Roman Reigns is back from illness to fully reunite The Shield.

As popular as The New Day are, The Shield are easily winning this one. There's no chance in hell Vince McMahon will let Roman Reigns lose to The New Day.

Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair: WWE shuffled the card again as Natalya was originally going to face Alexa Bliss. However, WWE needed more babyfaces so Charlotte Flair is in her place now.

That said, both Charlotte and Bliss are heavily pushed by the WWE. Due to Charlotte being the daughter of Ric Flair, I think she will win over Bliss. Charlotte is a much better wrestler and Smackdown needs a victory here.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) vs.

WWE Champion AJ Styles: This could be the main event, although WWE could always put the Survivor Series match on last instead, In either case, this match is bigger than what was originally planned a few weeks ago.

It was going to be Jinder Mahal vs. Brock Lesnar, but the fans hated that match.

Therefore, AJ Styles became the WWE Champion in order to face Brock Lesnar. Due to the size differences, I feel WWE is going to make Brock Lesnar win. Hopefully the match can still be competitive though.

Since Jinder Mahal is off the card, I feel he might interfere in this match to annoy AJ Styles.

Jinder Mahal still has a rematch clause for the WWE Title. Not to mention Vince McMahon wants Brock Lesnar to still look strong until he loses the Universal Championship eventually to his favorite Superstar named Roman Reigns!
