Two of professional wrestling’s most dominant athletes will square off Sunday night at 2016 WWE Survivor Series airing live from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
Goldberg and Brock Lesnar last fought at WrestleMania XX, and with the returning Goldberg claiming this will be the last match of his career, he is looking for the opportunity to go 2-0 against the man known as “The Beast.”
That is the headline match for what is being billed as a show pitting the top superstars from the Raw and SmackDown Live brands against each other in the other five matches on the card.

Women’s 5-on-5 Elimination Match — Raw (2 survivors) def. SmackDown: The women’s match was relatively formulaic for Survivor Series with each team alternating eliminations until Raw pulled away at the end. Before the match began, Nikki Bella was found down hurt in the backstage area, so SmackDown “coach” Natalya took her place. (Of course, a video shown Tuesday on SmackDown will likely prove that Natalya was behind the attack, starting a feud.) Sasha Banks found her way out of the match earlier than expected, as did Nia Jax, who had the spot of the match with a double single-arm suplex on Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch. Ultimately, it was Raw that prevailed as Jax — after her elimination — took Lynch out at ringside, giving Raw a two-on-one advantage to first pin Bliss and then eliminate an injured Lynch. Bayley clinched the victory by pinning Lynch, only to be attacked by Charlotte after the match.
Survivors: Charlotte, Bayley (Raw)
Order of elimination: Carmella (SD) –> Alicia Fox (Raw) –> Naomi (SD) –> Sasha Banks (Raw) –> Natalya (SD) –> Nia Jax (Raw) –> Alexa Bliss (SD) –> Becky Lynch (SD)
Intercontinental Championship — The Miz (c) def. Sami Zayn via pinfall to retain the title: The stipulation on this match was that the IC title would flip over to Raw should Zayn claim the belt from Miz. There was some good action in this one with Zayn eventually gaining the upperhand via a Blue Thunder Bomb. When Zayn attempted to submit Miz via the Figure Four Leg Lock, Maryse (Miz’s real-life wife) ran over to the scorekeeper’s table and rang the ring bell. This led Zayn to believe he had won via submission. Instead, while Zayn was confused, Miz rolled him up from behind to earn the 1-2-3 and retain the title. The championship will stay on SmackDown, which is the best booking decision WWE could make.
Tag Team 10-on-10 Elimination Match — Raw (1 survivor) def. SmackDown: While most of the early eliminations were not much of a surprise, New Day going out so early was confusing at first. Eventually it became obvious that WWE was trying to use this as a spotlight for some of its newer teams, which it accomplished. The Usos continue to look really strong as heels, and they should absolutely be the team to take the SmackDown titles off Slater and Rhyno when that time comes. The finish was also solid. Cesaro had Jey Uso locked in the Sharpshooter, and just as Jimmy Uso was about to interfere, Sheamus stepped in with a Brogue Kick to allow Cesaro to get the submission victory.
Sole survivor: Cesaro & Sheamus (Raw)
Order of elimination: Breezango (SD) –> The New Day (Raw) –> The Hype Bros (SD) –> The Shining Stars (Raw) –> American Alpha (SD) –> Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (Raw) –> Heath Slater & Rhyno (SD) –> Enzo Amore & Big Cass (Raw) –> The Usos (SD)
Adam’s predictions: 3-0
