Not this time. We are coming up on one of the biggest events on the WWE calendar with Survivor Series. The show has been presented annually for more than thirty five years now and has undergone a few transformations throughout its history. That seems to be taking place again, as we might not be seeing a recent tradition taking place at this year’s edition of the show.

In most recent years (save for 2022), WWE has presented a champion vs. champion match at Survivor Series as the company’s two World Champions face off. However, according to Wrestling Observer Radio, that is not expected to be the case this year as no match is expected to take place between World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. WWE has announced another WarGames match, though there is no word on who will be taking part in the match.

It is a tradition. Check out the previous editions, plus what we could have seen:

Opinion: I can go for this idea going away, as there is little reason to have one of the champions lose. Rollins vs. Reigns is a big time match and while Survivor Series is a major stage, having a match for the sake of brand supremacy is not the most logical move. Instead, let the SmackDown vs. Monday Night Raw match be centered around something a little lower down while WarGames gets the top spot.

What do you think of the idea? What do you want to see at Survivor Series? Let us know in the comments below.
