What will happen at the Survivor Series?

Survivor Series is one of the most important pay-per-views in the WWE calendar, the second oldest among those currently offered and included in the so-called 'Big Four' events (along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam).

Given the difficulty in creating storylines compatible with the format of the event, the Stamford company had decided that the last edition of this PPV would be held in 2010. Subsequently, WWE retraced its steps and chose to keep it on the calendar due to its strong historical value.

This year's edition will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on November 21st. There is no doubt that Survivor Series has undergone drastic changes since its 'debut' in 1987. During the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo expressed his disappointment at how the quality of the PPV has dropped over the years.

Survivor Series is getting closer and closer

"Maybe not all audiences who listen to us have a perfect memory of what the first editions of Survivor Series were like. They were on stage for Thanksgiving and it was a very special time.

All fans were eager to tune in to watch the show" - explained Vince Russo. "There were many feuds that overlapped and the twists were always around the corner. Now there is almost nothing left of that glorious tradition” - he added.

WWE has lost a large number of viewers in the recent period, also due to the vehement rise of AEW. “Vince McMahon no longer has any interest in listening, I can guarantee you that. In this historical phase, his only goal is to sign contracts and make profitable deals.

Thanks to the partnership with Peacock and with streaming services, their future is assured. They are contractually obligated to make a three-hour product on Mondays and that is exactly what they are doing. That's why the shows don't show any improvement.

WWE doesn't care about quality anymore, you have to get over it”. Shawn Michaels had an illustrious WWE career and an outstanding record at Survivor Series. The superstar has competed in several elimination matches and title matches at the event.

The Heartbreak Kid scored some huge victories at the event, but none more infamous than the Survivor Series 1997. The night will be forever remembered as the night of the "Montreal Screwjob." It wasn't all controversy, as Michaels won his first world championship since returning from a severe injury at Survivor Series 2002.

He defeated five other superstars inside the first-ever Elimination Chamber match to become the World Heavyweight Champion.
