Notable Survivor Series absentees

The Survivor Series is absolutely packed with talent and mouthwatering matches – but there are some big names who are currently not scheduled to appear on the show.

In this era of expecting the unexpected in WWE, it is almost guaranteed that there will be some twists and turns at the hotly-anticipated pay-per-view in Atlanta.

Of the superstars not currently booked at the annual elimination extravaganza, who may yet play a pivotal part in the event?

Paige

Several social media postings from WWE superstars confirmed the appearance of Paige backstage at Monday Night Raw in Atlanta this week, prompting widespread speculation she was about to be added to the Raw team for the women’s elimination match.

Instead, it was Bayley who beat Mickie James and Dana Brooke in a triple threat match to book her spot in Alicia Fox’s squad.

However… the next night, Charlotte Flair won the SmackDown title by beating Natalya, meaning it will be The Queen who faces Alexa Bliss in the champion-against-champion match in Houston.

Natalya will not compete in the match, freeing up a spot for an as-yet-unknown competitor.

Paige has been training at the Performance Center for some time and her presence at television this week appears to be almost guaranteed.

But if recent WWE history has taught us anything, it is that now – more than ever – the unexpected should be expected. A monumental swerve could be pulled – there could be a roster switch, a one-off comeback from a retired veteran, an NXT call-up, anything.

Nothing will be known for sure until the competitor’s music hits on what promises to be an evening of shocks and surprises up and down the card.
