WWE Survivor Series 2016 Result Prediction
Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg
Goldberg is going to enter into “suplex city” on this Sunday at Survivor Series
Lesnar has been undefeated clean since WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013 and he isn’t going to suffer a loss by a 49-year-old who has been out of wresting for almost wrestled 12 years. Goldberg could be the best opponent against Lesnar’s opponents. However, if he able Spear Lesnar and end up winning then it won’t be his last match in WWE.
Prediction: Brock Lesnar
Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match
“Monday Night Raw” is still WWE’s flagship show, and the team will likely get the win, as a result. The Undertaker’s return to “SmackDown” also indicates that Team Raw will win, since the Deadman indicated that he could have matches against members of Team SmackDown if they lose.
Team RAW shown the difference in power on the previous RAW. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, former shield brother could decimate team Smackdown. But Brown Strowman could be the difference maker as it will next to impossible to pin or count him out. It’s clear that team RAW will win and Roman Reigns will finish things off.

Prediction: Team SmackDown
