The Five-Count: Who Will Make It To Survivor Series?


Superstars of the Week: The Usos

The Usos are back! It was quite the surprise to see them return as part of Team Roman Reigns on Raw even though we knew a return could be imminent. The Usos concluded the week with an easy victory over The Ascension on SmackDown. There are already rumors that we could see The Usos challenge The New Day for the Tag Team Championship in the coming weeks, and that really doesn't surprise. Jimmy and Jey are the "John Cena" of the tag team division, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they are always in the Tag Title picture it seems. I'm looking forward to seeing what their plans are for Survivor Series.

Match of the Week: Team Reigns vs. Team Rollins (Raw)

When the Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match was initially announced for the main event of Raw, I was surprised and slightly disappointed for some reason. As the night progressed, those feelings went away and I became excited for it - especially when The Usos entered. The ring work was good from beginning to end. It was cool to see the bout come down to Reigns and Ambrose vs. Rollins. The only thing I would've changed was the DQ finish with Rollins using a chair. I would've accepted Reigns pinning Rollins in this case because of what was going to be their upcoming PPV match.

The Highlight: Divas Revolution Showcase On Raw

One of my favorite moments from this week included the Divas four-way number one contender's match on Raw. Paige managed to beat Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Brie Bella in a very competitive battle that went nearly fourteen minutes, which is still impressive to think about. I thought everyone involved did a great job of showing everyone what the Divas Revolution is truly about. Paige going over was the right decision, in my opinion, and I'm looking forward to her match with Charlotte at Survivor Series.

The Lowlight: Seth Rollins' Injury

The lowlight of the week? No. The lowlight of the month? Maybe... Seth Rollins getting injured just flat out sucks right now. Seth was on top of the world with a lengthy reign as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. What makes matters worse is the fact that John Cena, Randy Orton, and Daniel Bryan are all absent from the main event spot. Rollins was going to have to carry the brand even more. Unfortunately, Rollins will be out for at least 6-9 months. Forget Survivor Series, WrestleMania 32, and everything in between. It just flat out sucks and there's nothing we can do about it. Now, we have to make light of the situation and look at who will benefit from these series of unfortunate events. Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler - it's your time to make it shine.

Prediction: The WWE Title Tournament - Who Will Win?

With Rollins, Cena, and Orton guaranteed to be out of the picture for the time being, we have to look at the "stars of tomorrow" that haven't received the push to the moon yet. It sucks that we, once again, won't be able to see Rollins vs. Reigns on PPV, but I don't think that means Reigns won't be without a WWE Title match. There will be a tournament to crown a new champion, and I fully believe Roman Reigns is set to win it all. He's the biggest babyface name available that is primed for the spot. The question is - who will he beat in the finals to win the title? My two predictions are Dean Ambrose or Kevin Owens, with the former being my main guess. Will WWE go with babyface vs. babyface? Or could we see the return of someone like Brock Lesnar? I hope we receive more answers on Monday's Raw.

That's it for this week's edition of The Five-Count! What did you think of this interesting week in WWE? Who do you think will step up and pursue the WWE World Heavyweight Championship? Will we see a return for the tournament? I would love to hear from you below in the comments area.
