On Tuesday, Nov. 18, WWE taped the Nov. 21 edition of “Smackdown,” the final piece of WWE programming before the 2014 “Survivor Series” event. Additionally, it may very well be the last time The Authority, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, get to call the shots in WWE.

At the pay-per-view, Team Authority (Seth Rollins, Kane, Rusev, Mark Henry, and Luke Harper) will battle Team Cena (John Cena, Ryback, Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan, and Big Show.) If Team Cena happens to defeat Team Authority, The Authority will be removed from power on WWE programming. The monumental stipulation was announced by none other than Vince McMahon, leading to speculation that WWE is rejuvenating a planned angle from 2013, involving Vince McMahon and Triple H.

The Nov. 21 “Smackdown” will open with none other than Triple H, who announces yet another marquee stipulation for the “Survivor Series” main event. The “King of Kings” made it known that if Team Cena happens to lose to Team Authority, then all five members of Team Cena will be “fired” from WWE.

“Survivor Series” airs live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network, beginning at 8 p.m. EST. Before the pay-per-view portion goes on the air, the WWE Network and other various social media outlets will air a “Survivor Series Kickoff,” featuring Fandango and Bad News Barrett.

WWE “Survivor Series” airs on the WWE Network and Pay-Per-View through selective cable providers Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014. WrestlingRumors.net will of course have full live coverage and results of the event, and you can “live tweet” along side of us on Twitter by following us @WrestleRumors.

We will also be hosting our “Survivor Series” Pre-Show, WRESTLING WARM-UP: “Survivor Series” Edition, where we want YOU, the Wrestling Rumors faithful, to join us as we break down the final card match-by-match before the big show gets underway. “WRESTLING WARM-UP: ‘Survivor Series’ Edition” will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET on Nov. 23!

Editor’s Note

Wow. I still see it much more likely that Team Cena goes over. Though, there is still a slight chance Team Authority ends up winning.
