Braun Strowman added to Team Raw for WWE Survivor Series


Braun Strowman is the latest addition to Team Raw for Survivor Series.

Strowman qualified for Raw's men's Survivor Series team by defeating Sheamus and Keith Lee in a triple threat match on tonight's episode of Raw. Sheamus and Lee have already qualified for Survivor Series. With AJ Styles, Lee, Sheamus, and Strowman confirmed for the team, there's only one spot remaining.

Strowman interrupted Styles, Lee, and Sheamus on Raw tonight as they were arguing when Styles tried to make himself captain of Team Raw. Strowman said the only thing their team needs is him. Lee pointed out that they had to qualify for the team and said Strowman will have to qualify too. Strowman listed his qualifications and said he should be team captain.

Adam Pearce said he was having a hard time finding someone to face Strowman in a qualifying match. After Strowman, Lee, and Sheamus went back and forth, Styles proposed the triple threat match.

After Sheamus hit a Brogue Kick on Lee near the end of the match, Strowman gave Sheamus a powerslam and pinned him to qualify for Survivor Series. Styles celebrated that he'll have Strowman on his team and wanted everyone to shake hands. Strowman told Lee they'll have to put their differences aside to win at Survivor Series. They shook hands, then Sheamus gave Strowman a Brogue Kick. Lee then sent Sheamus to the outside with a tackle and Styles gave Lee a dropkick.

Kevin Owens and Jey Uso are the first two SmackDown wrestlers to qualify for the five-on-five traditional Survivor Series elimination match against Team Raw.
