The WWE has announced three matches already for this month’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.

One was already announced last week after WWE Evolution when they revealed SmackDown Live women’s champion Becky Lynch will battle Ronda Rousey.

That was just the first step in planning the new pay-per-view.

Much like that women’s match, after Brock Lesnar won the WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel over Braun Strowman, the WWE revealed that he would battle AJ Styles in another champion vs. champion match.

This is a rematch of last year’s Survivor Series event.

At the 2017 Survivor Series, Brock Lesnar beat AJ Styles in a 15-minute match — one of the longest and better matches of Lesnar’s last Universal title reign. This year, expect another great match between the two champions.

The WWE also announced that Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins will battle United States champion Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series.

Expect a tag team match as well. The Bar is the current SmackDown Live tag team champions but there are no tag champs on Monday Night Raw after Dean Ambrose turned on Seth Rollins after they won the titles from Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre.

Finally, a rumored match will be a traditional Survivor Series match between the two brands. This was likely set up thanks to Shane McMahon winning the World Cup at WWE Crown Jewel, much to the chagrin of Baron Corbin.

WWE Survivor Series takes place on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. EST on WWE Network.
