WWE Survivor Series 2019 live updates
The Viking Raiders defeat The New Day and Undisputed Era in a Triple Threat match
6:46 p.m. FINISH: The New Day gets wiped out outside the ring so its UE and the Viking Raiders are battling it out. Ivar hits a springboard back elbow onto both O’Reilly and Fish and then they give O’Reilly the Viking Experience on Fish and get the win. Each brand has a win following the kickoff show.
6:44 p.m.: Big with a spear through the ropes that takes on Erik.
6:41 p.m.: Ivar is wiping out everyone including a roundhouse kick that drops Big E. He then dives feet first towards Fish in the corner but misses. Meanwhile, Kingston wipes out Erik and then tags in Big E who is cleaing house. He puts Erik on his shoulders and Kingston comes off the top rope with double knees on Erik.
6:37 p.m.: Erik picks up Ivar (somehow) and slams him off the apron until the other two teams.
6:34 p.m.: Big boys collide.
6:28 p.m.: This should be fantastic if they are given a good enough time. I think everyone would prefer watching these guys go at it then listen to the broadcast team break down Survivor Series. Right?
Lio Rush defeats Akira Tozawa and Kalisto to retain the WWE NXT Cruiserweight champion
6:19 p.m. FINISH: Kalisto connects with Salina Del Sol on Tozawa but then Rush comes flying off the top rope and hits his Final Hour frog splash onto Kalisto to retain his title. God action but way too short. NXT is on the board with its first win of the night.
6:16 p.m.: Kalisto his Salina Del Sol on Rush and makes the cover but Tozawa breaks it up. He then hits a senton onto Rush but Kalisto makes the last second save to keep the match going.
6:12 p.m.: All three are on the top rope with Lio Rush hitting a double Spanish Fly onto Tozawa and Kalisto.
6:07 p.m.: This one should be fast and then faster.

6:00 p.m. FINISH: Surprise victors as Ford hits a huge frog splash on Ziggler but Roode then comes up from behind and throws him over the top rope to the floor, giving him and Roode the win. Just a standard battle royal that went by fast. Team SmackDown is up 1-0.
5:57 p.m.: And just like that, we’re down to the Ziggler and Roode against The Street Profits.
