The theme of 2021 Survivor Series is champion versus champion. The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) appeared on Raw and confronted Drew McIntyre and WWE Champion Big E. They told both competitors that whomever emerges victorious from their WWE Title match at Crown Jewel will face the Universal Champion at Survivor Series. The current champion Roman Reigns is scheduled to defend the title against Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel.
In the main event of Raw, Drew McIntyre and Big E took on Jimmy and Jey. Post-match, McIntyre attacked the WWE Champion.
In Austin’s Theory’s Raw return match, he defeated Jeff Hardy with a rollup while holding Hardy’s pants.
Also, the tag match with Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair taking on Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch resulted in a disqualification.
