Yeah between Survivor Series and NXT Takeover and Starcade it should be a pretty good couple of weeks for wrestling. *Knock on wood

Quote The 2017 Survivor Series pay-per-view is scheduled for this upcoming Sunday night and it appears as though the card has been finalized outside of any last-minute additions, which means it’s time for another look at the superstars on the roster who have been skipped over.

For whatever reason, these men and women from the brand weren’t deemed important enough to find a spot for at the event—at least as far as it’s currently being advertised. Some of those omissions might be justified, while others below are a bit more questionable. Let’s take a look at who will be sitting this show out.

Kane

Conspicuous by his absence is The Big Red Machine, as he’s been feuding with Roman Reigns and the rest of The Shield as well as Braun Strowman simultaneously.

I had thought that this would mean we’d get a separate match wherein Kane would face Reigns, as that seemed to be the direction WWE wanted to go in before TLC, but the Strowman feud got in the way and lo and behold, Reigns is sticking with The Shield in separation from Kane while Strowman is on Team Raw.

My guess is we’ll see Kane make an appearance to interfere in the elimination match, dragging Strowman away from the action and getting him counted out so he can be eliminated without taking an actual pinfall loss.

That may not happen, though, and as far as the official advertisements are concerned, Kane isn’t scheduled to be on the card.

Jason Jordan

In one of what has to be 40 changes WWE has made to this card—which is incredibly annoying for people like myself who have to keep editing their articles over and over again—Jason Jordan is now out of Team Raw and written off the card with a fake injury due to Bray Wyatt’s attack on Monday night.

To be perfectly honest, if his replacement hadn’t been someone of the caliber of Triple H, I would have considered this a downgrade for the card, which is certainly not the general mindset, as most people are against Jordan getting any kind of push.

I was interested, though, and I can’t help but feel like Jordan could have had a good showing or cemented a heel turn. Now, he’s not even going to be doing anything unless he is shown backstage trying to hype up Angle or something like that.

Bray Wyatt

Getting sick is nothing to be happy about, but if you’re someone like me who was tired of the Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor feud, maybe you look at Wyatt’s TLC departure as a blessing in disguise.

Instead of just coming back when he was ready—assuming he is over being ill, since JoJo and Bo Dallas have returned—WWE opted to just keep him off television, only bringing him back this week to face Jason Jordan.

This may be just to distance him from that feud so we don’t have to remember that it didn’t have a proper conclusion, or, alternatively, it could be a situation similar to what I just said could happen with Kane and Braun Strowman.

With the way things went down with Jordan, though, there’s less of a chance Sister Abigail picks up where he/she left off with Finn Balor and more of a chance that Wyatt continuing a feud with Jordan following Survivor Series.

Elias

Speaking of Jordan, while Elias’s guitar on a pole match wasn’t officially a qualifying match, it certainly felt like such, as shortly after his victory, Jordan was awarded the final spot on Team Raw.

This means Elias will have nobody to feud with to give him a random spot on the card and the best that his fans can hope for is a musical performance as an interlude during the event or as a featured random addition to the pre-show.

This isn’t a scenario Elias is not used to, as this is familiar territory for him when there’s nothing else lined up, even though there’s a chance this card could be stacked enough to bypass having enough time for him to serenade Houston.

From the Women’s Division

Even losing Summer Rae and Emma did nothing to help Dana Brooke’s chances of being on Team Raw, as there were still more than five women available to take a spot over her and she’s been pretty much a non-entity for quite some time.

Mickie James had a bit of a push recently with her mini-feud against Alexa Bliss, but she, too, has been pushed aside once more, although it’s understandable if she has other commitments (ie, being a mom is the most important thing she can possibly do, particularly in comparison to being a sacrificial lamb for Survivor Series) and the younger talent is always going to be pushed more, so that makes sense.

At least James and Brooke were given the opportunity to earn a spot on Team Raw, which Bayley snatched away from them.

When it comes to Paige, who is still technically part of the Raw roster even though she hasn’t appeared in over a year, her social media accounts point to an impending return, but until that actually happens, she’s an expected absentee per usual.

From the Tag Team Division

For the most part, the wrestlers missing from Survivor Series who are in the tag team division are out of the mix due to a combination of injuries and just not being all that important overall.

Last year, with the tag teams forming a super-team, there was more of a shot for people like Titus Worldwide and Heath Slater and Rhyno to get on the card, but this time around, that’s a no-go. Given how the one duo is more of a midcarder and his manager and the other one is a comedy act, that’s to be expected.

The Miztourage won’t officially have a match on the card, but they will be accompanying The Miz to the ring for his match against Baron Corbin, so that’s half-credit, which is more than we can say about The Good Brothers, who are continually put on the backburner for some reason.

If I were Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, I’d be begging and pleading to be traded over to SmackDown as soon as possible unless WWE is ever willing to pull the trigger on The Balor Club, because on their own, it doesn’t seem like Gallows and Anderson are ever prioritized, unfortunately.

Then, there are The Revival and The Hardy Boyz, who are both down one member due to injuries. Jeff Hardy and Scott Dawson aren’t likely to be back any time soon, so Matt Hardy and Dash Wilder have had to ride the singles scene in the meantime.

When you look at some of the talent missing, it just shows how stacked the card is.
 
You'd have expected some of them such as Kane to have been involved somewhere.
 
Really have high hopes that this is going to be the PPV of the year.

To be honest having Trips on the card instead of JJ is brilliant. It adds more star power to the match, it adds more quality to the match, plus it sets up the potential Trips vs Angle feud for WM so excellent decision making all round.

agreed. Jordan shouldn't have been put into the match at all.

Roode and Nakamura might be new to WWE, but they are veteran talents outside of the company, making Jordan a complete rookie out of the 10 that would have taken part.

did anyone else notice that Gallows and Anderson have started wearing gear with the hashtag #BC on them? I do suspect a Balor Club angle to come up at some point, perhaps during the upcoming feud with Joe, though i'm interested to see if they turn Finn heel, or Anderson and Gallows face.

no one on that list is a surprise. they have made it clear that Survivor Series now is "the only night of the year Raw and SDL go head-to-head", so you're not going to get any Raw or SDL exclusive feuds playing out as a match, but potentially as distractions or costly in-fights.

only exception to that rule is the 205 match, which, even if it weren't, I would still hope to drop to the pre-show.

The rumblings are the Cruiserweight match will be dropped to the pre-show. They also have the perfect opportunity to setup new feuds moving forward with these elimination matches too, I just hope they don't over do it so it spoils the show.

Quote WWE only decided to replace Jason Jordan with Triple H on the Raw team for the traditional elimination match sometime over the weekend, reports pwinsider.com. In fact, the changes were made so late that Jordan himself only found out that he was being replaced on Sunday.

-- As evidenced over the past two weeks, WWE has made significant changes to the Survivor Series card with the only match staying the same being The Miz vs. Baron Corbin.

-- Survivor Series is expected to be yet another 6-hour event, with the Kick-Off show beginning at 5 PM ET and lasting two hours and the actual PPV starting at 7 PM ET and lasting four hours until approximately 11 PM ET, and quite possibly even longer. While only one match has been announced for the pre-show, there is a high likelihood that a second match will be added in order to fill out the two hours.

I feel for Jason Jordan. Put in a big four main event for the biggest match of his career and removed from it because of idiots above him.
 
The card has changed so many matches. Listen to the Taz Show podcast from yesterday as it starts with Taz basically saying people in E weren't happy with his views and he rants about stuff which is probably going to damage his HOF chances LOL
 
Six hours is a very long show. With it being on the Network they can go longer if they want as they have nobody else to answer to.

A 2 hour pre-show too so they'll have more than one match on that...no idea what though.

Probably something involving either Rusev or a women’s match involving the ones that didn’t make the team

I wonder if we will see the B.B. debut during the tag match in order to set up their inevitable feud with the Usos

Maybe BB will face off with Breezango after unveiling themselves as the attackers in an earlier segment.

A couple weeks ago, this seemed like a throwaway pay per view, but now, this is quite possibly the best card WWE has produced all year (not to mention they literally did all of it on the fly) and there's just so much to look forward to. 

People tout matches as being "dream" a lot, but Styles/Lesnar is an actual dream encounter. I've always wanted to see these two go at it, they've both had such huge careers, and never crossed paths. Just the video package, seeing two guys stood opposite each other, and hearing the crowd roar before it even starts. And it's a million times better than Jinder vs Lesnar just on those factors alone, even without knowing match quality and whether Lesnar will bring his A-game or not for AJ.

The Men's 5-on-5 is pretty stacked as well. Before Monday, the only choice that didn't sit well with me was Jason Jordan, but I could have easily lived with that. But now you have Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, John Cena and Triple H all in there. Yeah, those four have all wrestled each other at several points in time, but for them to face Balor, Nakamura, Roode, etc. is just incredibly exciting and all of which are singles matches I'd like seeing at some point, and there is definitely a chance of seeing several sneak previews. I genuinely cannot remember the last time any kind of elimination match was this stacked. 

I'm also looking forward to The Bar/The Usos. Maybe it won't be as good as Ambrose and Rollins/The Usos would have been, but still a very solid encounter on paper. All four of those guys are good and have been killing it in the tag team division. Last time I was this hyped for a card was this past WrestleMania.
