Thanksgiving Weekend: Chicago to Host WWE's Survivor Series

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is poised to deliver an exhilarating two-day wrestling extravaganza in Chicago over Thanksgiving, promising fans an unforgettable experience. This year, the Allstate Arena in Chicago has been chosen as the venue to host the widely acclaimed Survivor Series and Friday Night SmackDown on November 25 and 24, respectively.

This exclusive scoop was shared with NBC Chicago by the WWE management. WWE's Survivor Series, a marquee event, is cherished by fans for its eponymous Survivor Series matches. These unique contests assemble teams of four or five wrestlers who engage in a thrilling battle adhering to an elimination match rule.

Each match is a test of resilience and strategy as teams vie to outlast each other in the wrestling ring.

Anticipation for Survivor Series Format

Last year, the Survivor Series took an exciting turn when it introduced the WarGames format.

This innovative format placed competitors in a steel cage with two wrestling rings positioned adjacently, intensifying the contest's physicality and suspense. Fans are eagerly anticipating whether this format will be retained this year.

WWE is expected to announce the match structure in the forthcoming months officially. The city of Chicago, renowned for its vibrant wrestling scene, previously hosted the Survivor Series in 2019. This year, WWE is set to make an impactful return to the city, transforming the Thanksgiving weekend into a wrestling celebration.

The tickets for this highly anticipated event will be available via Ticketmaster. The company will also stream the event on Peacock, ensuring that fans worldwide can partake in the thrill and spectacle of the Survivor Series.

The detailed ticketing information for the general public will be disclosed shortly, as confirmed by WWE. With the Survivor Series set to return to Chicago, WWE aims to enrich the city's wrestling heritage. As anticipation builds, fans can look forward to a captivating blend of athleticism, drama, and spectacle that has become synonymous with the WWE brand.
