WWE will host its thirty-first annual Survivor Series pay-per-view event this weekend (Sunday 19 November 2017).
It takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and will see Raw take on Smackdown in a series of inter-brand matches.
This will include the WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesner facing the newly crowned WWE Champion AJ Styles.
Lesnar was due to fight Jinder Mahal until he lost his WWE Championship to Styles at SmackDown Live in Manchester two weeks ago.
Raw tag team champions Sheamus and Cesaro will go toe to toe with The Usos.
Alexa Bliss, Raw women’s champion, will compete for female supremacy with her SmackDown equivalent Charlotte, and Intercontinental champion The Miz squares off against US Champion Baron Corbin.
The men’s traditional elimination match sees the SmackDown team of John Cena, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, Shane McMahon and Randy Orton take on Raw’s Kurt Angle, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman and Triple H.
The women’s five-on-five match sees SmackDown’s Becky Lynch, Naomi, Carmella, Tamina and a fifth member to be decided fly the flag against Alicia Fox, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Asuka and Bayley of Raw.
The only Championship on the line is the Cruiserweight belt, which Enzo Amore will defend against Kalisto.
WWE Survivor Series 2017 will be live on Sky Sports Box Office (channel 491) and Sky Sports HD Box Office (channel 492) at 12am on Sunday 19 November (Monday morning).

NXT TakeOver: WarGames will also take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Saturday as one of the greatest matches returns to the wrestling scene.

Five matches have been confirmed for the event so far, including the WarGames match between The Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong vs. Sanity vs. The Undisputed Era.
