To hype the uber-stacked Survivor Series card, Triple H promoted the Raw vs SmackDown Live elimination match. Throughout the weeks, the card has gone through several changes, which has actually helped the interest significantly in the eyes of many. The 10-man elimination match kicked off from an “under siege” invasion, when SmackDown Live invaded Raw and left many members of the red brand defenseless. Since then, the teams have been filled with some of the best competitors of each brand, and even some legends to add a heightened level of experience.
While the WWE legends, such as Randy Orton, John Cena, Kurt Angle, and Triple H make each team stronger, Triple H took some time out to praise the success of his brainchild, NXT.

And the man who will destroy any of them if it’s #BestForBusiness.

The Game made sure to highlight the fact that Team Raw and Team SmackDown Live are filled with NXT alum. On Team Raw, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, and Braun Strowman all came from NXT. Joe is one of two people who has won the NXT Championship twice, while Balor holds the record of being the longest reigning NXT Champion.
On Team SmackDown Live, Shinsuke Nakamura is the other person who held the NXT Championship on two occasions. The other person from the blue brand who came from NXT is Bobby Roode, and he is also a former NXT Champion.
