The Survivor Series PPV wouldn't be the same with a traditional, elimination tag team match and this year's event has a major inter-promotional matchup. For weeks, both Team Raw and Team Smackdown put together their 3-member squads and developed a little rivalry with bragging rights and brand pride on the line. Travis Roarke was named the captain for Team Raw, and Anarchy won a match to earn the 2nd spot on the team. Then on the final Raw of the month and needing a bigger guy to counter, Travis and Anarchy asked Shawn Midnight to join. Midnight, who had recently won 2 tag matches with different partners, seemed like the perfect guy to round out the team. As for Team Smackdown, GM Teddy Long had control over the choices. First he chose the "True Savior" Guy Justice to captain the squad. Next, in a surprise reveal, he made Mr. Money in the Bank Angus the 2nd man. But the 3rd member is still a mystery, which ended up being a disadvantage. Justice invited Team Raw to his "In Search of Truth" talk segment but instead of a meaningful discussion, it quickly devolved into a brawl. The 3-on-2 advantage allowed Team Raw to embarrass Justice and Angus and stand tall just days before the PPV. Who is the 3rd member of Team Smackdown, and will they be strong enough to even the teams?
The fans are curious and excited as the entrances start, with Team Raw's members coming out first. Travis, Anarchy and Shawn each come out to their own themes, and the crowd boos each of them as they head to the ring. Next, Justice comes out first and receives a pretty solid ovation from the crowd. Joining him soon after is Angus, and the "Irish Giant" gets even louder cheers as he heads to the ring. The 5 known competitors are in the ring, and a few anxious moments pass as everyone awaits the mystery partner. Finally, "Original Prankster" by The Offspring plays and... JESTER PRICE flashes on the screen! The "Toughest Comedian Alive" is making his WWE debut and joining Team Smackdown! The fans are stunned to see a new guy head to the ring confidently, and the other 5 men watch him enter in a little bewilderment. Jester joins Justice and Angus in their corner, and they greet him happily. Both teams talk strategy briefly, and it seems like the team captains will start things off. The bell rings, and this traditional match begins!
Justice and Travis fight hard to start, setting the tone for hopefully an exciting match. Travis uses his strikes and brawling techniques to get some stiff shots in, while Justice counters with athletic moves like suplexes, slams and a neckbreaker. Justice seems to have control, but Travis nails his foe with a throat thrust and... reaches over to get a hot tag to a very ready Anarchy! The "Little Hellraiser" races into the ring and surprises Justice with a clothesline. He then continues his run and knocks Angus and Jester off the apron, and turns around just as the "Savior" is staggering around. Anarchy kicks him in the gut and... drops him with his Anarchist Apple finisher! Anarchy goes for the cover, hoping to score the first elimination... but Jester slides in and breaks up the pinfall just in time! The new guy saves his partner and Anarchy is disappointed that his big move didn't work!
Anarchy maintains the advantage for Team Raw for a bit, and once the "Assassin" has recovered enough, he begs for a tag back in. Anarchy gives it to him and together, they plant Justice down hard with a double-team move! Travis tries to keep his team in control but Justice rallies back and gets a little revenge... by teaming up with Angus to perform a double-team move! Justice grabs Travis as Angus places his giant boot on the turnbuckle, and the "Savior" smashes Roarke's face into it.
The Money in the Bank briefcase holder wastes no time, and starts to dominate the exhausted Roarke. Anarchy and Shawn are impatient waiting for a tag that doesn't seem to be coming soon. Angus brutalizes his opponent with big punches and power moves. Travis tries to reach out for a tag, but Angus pulls him back... and locks him in his signature Irish Hug! The "Irish Giant" squeezes the life out of him, as Travis tries desperately to break free. A few punches is enough to loosen Angus' grip, but Mr. Money in the Bank goes right back... and lifts Travis up! Angus pumps him up over his head and then sends him flying for his Cliffhanger finisher! Travis suffers the near-10-foot drop and crashes face-first onto the mat, and Angus tries a pinfall! The referee counts 1... 2... and Travis snatches the bottom rope to cause a break!
The next few moments change the whole complexion of the match. Angus is disappointed that his big run of moves wasn't enough to get the first elimination, but Justice and Jester voice their support and keep him in high spirits. On the other side of the ring, Travis crawls over as Shawn reaches in for a tag. But suddenly... Midnight pulls his hand away! Travis swipes for the tag and comes up empty, looking around in confusion. Shawn steps down off the apron and begins to leave! Anarchy yells at him to come back, but Shawn waves him off and exits the area. Shawn Midnight has completely abandoned Team Raw, leaving them to suffer a 3-on-2 disadvantage!
Unsure what to do, Travis turns back to face his opponent... which is a fresh Jester Price! The rookie comes in off a tag and very quickly strings together an impressive run of moves. Weakened and dazed, Travis can barely protect himself. Fired up and chuckling confidently, Jester lines up his foe... and stuns him with his Punchline finisher! Jester goes for the cover and Justice enters the ring to block off Anarchy, and the rookie scores the first actual elimination of the match!
Anarchy remains in the ring and realizes it's a 3-on-1 handicap match now. The "Little Hellraiser" takes a breath and prepares to fight. Anarchy and Jester battle for a minute, but Jester sends him into his corner. The rookie tags in Angus, and together they slam Anarchy with a double-team move! It is not looking good for the remaining member of Team Raw...
... but surprisingly, Anarchy mounts a rally against Angus! Anarchy uses his quickness to knock the "Irish Giant" down a few times, and the crowd is very surprised to see such a little guy do well against the biggest guy on the roster. But a huge uppercut by Angus kills the run and gives the "Irish Giant" a chance to tag out. Justice comes into the ring and appears refreshed and ready to cap off the match.
A few power moves is enough to put Justice in control, and he then stuns Anarchy with his Harsh Truth signature! The "True Savior" quickly flips Anarchy onto his stomach... and locks in his Justice Lock finishing submission! Anarchy struggles but can't overpower his foe to reach the ropes. With no teammates left to help out, Anarchy has no choice but to tap out!
The crowd erupts into cheers, and Team Smackdown enters the ring together to celebrate the sweep, although with a little bit of controversy. Angus, Justice and Jester all point and acknowledge the crowd's support, and they stand proudly after representing the blue brand well!
WINNERS: Guy Justice, Angus & Jester Price
