We are hearing some news on who Vince wants to be on the Raw and Smackdown teams for Survivor Series. For the Raw team: Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns and Kurt Angle as Team Captain, with Braun Strowman as the likely 5th man. Over on Smackdown Shane McMahon will captain his team with AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakumara, Bobby Roode and Randy Orton.

The plan, as of today, is to have Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn cost Smackdown the victory. The only issue with this is that WWE also wants to feature Owens and Zayn in a match at the show, but they don't know how to feature them yet. There is also talk of aligning Owens and Zayn with Daniel Bryan somehow.

Zack Reacts: I don't know how I would feel about Bryan turning heel on Shane. If that's how they book it anyway. I honestly think there should be a stipulation to the match to give it higher stakes. Something like "the team that wins can draft one member of the losing team to the winning team's show." There's always a chance that'll happen with Vince wanting to move AJ to Raw sooner than later.
