Folks, as crazy as it sounds, WWE’s next “Premium Live Event,” Survivor SeriesJust two weeks away, and already, teams are slowly focusing for the two premier matches of the event, the men’s and women’s editions of WarGames.
First came the addition of Nikki Cross, who left her almost-a-superhero way SmackDown In favor of adopting a full-on SAnitY-style attitude adjustment. After a concerted effort to attack her former tag team partner, Alexa Bliss, at every turn, Cross appeared to unofficially become their fourth member with Damage Ctrl, and no one, not even the 24/7 Championship, was safe from it. Their anger.
Then apparently came The Brawling Brutes, who finally emerged SmackDown Roman Reigns, Solo Sequoia and The Usos during the main event, to attack The Bloodline Celebration. The idea of the Brutes filling three spots in a five-on-five match makes some sense, especially since Sami Zayn all but definitely took the final spot on Bloodline’s side, as Butch and Ridge Holland wrestled Jimmy and Jey. crown jewelA fourth member of the team was unlikely, as Drew McIntyre teamed up with his long-time rival for the common goal of besting the “head of the table” once and for all.
So, as things currently stand, nine of the ten members of the Men’s Wargames match have been decided, and seven of the ten female members have been decided, but who will fill those final four spots? Well, let’s try to find out.

Four wrestlers who could fill the final spot in WWE Survivor Series Wargames.
4. Candice LeRae
So, if Survivor Series Wargames Damage will feature a feud between Ctrl and the nameless trio of Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka, just one of the few that makes sense to include. RAW Performers winning over Bayley, Candice LeRay.
That’s right, while LeRae’s run on the main WWE roster hasn’t exactly been fruitful, the former The Way member recorded a loss in her second match. RAW, she has singles wins against Bayley and then-Nikki ASH, and has won all four of her TV matches against members of Damage CTRL. Given the opportunity to showcase her stuff at one of WWE’s Big 4 “Premium Live Events,” the “Poison Pixie” could fully establish herself outside of NXT and her relationship with Johnny Gargano.

3. Rhea Ripley
If LeRae joins Belair’s team here Survivor Series, the only logical fifth member of the Damage Ctrl team would be Rhea Ripley, the breakout star of Judgment Day who has had plenty of success both in and out of the ring as a powerhouse enforcer for Finn Balor, Dominic Mysterio, and Dominic Mysterio. Damian Priest. After working through a section on RAW While Judgment Day bemoans the addition of a new member to the OCs – in a minute – Ripley runs into Belair, who holds the RAW Women’s Championship belt that once belonged to “The Nightmare” in 2021.
Ripley will likely continue working with the Judgment Day guys, but don’t be surprised if her popularity gets another shot at Belair’s belt – remember, her match Money in the bank Canceled due to injury – a reality.

2. Mia Yim
If Ripley was the fifth member of Team Damage CTRL in WarGames, Mia Yim should be the final member of Belair’s group, as she was literally brought back to the WWE Universe to become Ripley-Buster. Although Yim has yet to make a return match in WWE, her most recent in-ring work came as a member of Impact Wrestling, which will be fixed at some point in the not-too-distant future and may result in a match here Survivor Series. Some matches just make sense.

1. Kevin Owens
And finally, with only one spot open in Men’s Wargames, who better to go up against Reigns, Seikoa, The Usos and Zayn than Kevin Owens? I mean think; Owens doesn’t like Roman Reigns and his ultimate prize, the undisputed WWE Universal Heavyweight Championship, The Usos, doesn’t like McIntyre – which could make for some interesting, inter-team drama – and has a 20-year history with Zayn. Put the “Prize Fighter” back in the main event picture for years, give him plenty of time in the cage before the bell officially rings, and watch as one of the most popular performers in the WWE Universe regains the fame he rightly deserves.
