Last year's WWE Survivor Series marked a significant shift in the main roster with the debut of the WarGames bout. According to recent whispers in the wrestling world, this year's Survivor Series could continue to break from tradition, with the focus pivoting to faction warfare.
Following Vince McMahon's step back from creative control last year, Triple H has seized the opportunity to introduce his unique flair to the legendary event. The traditional five-on-five brand versus brand match, a long-established staple of Survivor Series, was replaced in the last event by the NXT popularized WarGames match.
Faction Warfare Shakes Survivor Series
According to sources at the highly regarded Xero News, the upcoming Survivor Series is poised for a major shake-up. Reports indicate that a significant change is on the horizon, with a faction warfare theme taking center stage.
While the specifics of which top factions will be involved remain shrouded in secrecy, avid fans of WWE are already buzzing with anticipation. Speculation is rife about the potential inclusion of powerhouse groups like The Bloodline and Imperium in the heated clashes set to unfold this November.
Roman Reigns, WWE's reigning titan for the past few years, is expected to make an appearance at Survivor Series. Reigns has consistently proved his dominance in the ring, defending his title against all challengers. Despite his championship reign, Reigns has been keeping a low profile since his victory over Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39, appearing only twice since then.
The current reports from Xero News suggest that Reigns will maintain a lighter schedule following SummerSlam. However, the WWE Universe should anticipate his return in October for an event in Saudi Arabia, and early projections indicate that he will participate in Survivor Series.
Reigns is expected to resume a more active schedule during the Road to WrestleMania next year. Given his imminent achievement of 1000 days as the Universal Champion, all eyes are on the WWE to see what they have in store for The Tribal Chief in the upcoming events.
