At least they have an idea. WWE presents several pay per view events every year and some of them are quite recognizable. You will see some of them take place regularly every year and a lot of the time you can figure out what you are going to see based on the name alone. Not all of them are that simple though, and now WWE has clarified how an upcoming event will go.

This week on Monday Night Raw, the commentary team discussed the upcoming Survivor Series pay per view and confirmed that it will again be a battle for brand supremacy between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. There will also be another champion vs. champion match with the WWE Champion facing the Universal Champion. This will be the sixth year in a row featuring this concept.

There have been some good editions of the idea. Check out some of the better moments:

FULL MATCH - Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown – Traditional Survivor Series Match: Survivor Series 2017

FULL MATCH- NXT vs. Raw vs. SmackDown - Survivor Series Elimination Match: Survivor Series 2019

Opinion: Your individual miles are going to vary on this one, but at least we know what we are getting. I can go with the idea of a competition, but the lack of any long term stakes hurts things a good bit. At the same time, I’m not wild on having one of the World Champions lost a match, even if it is to their counterpart. It is not going to help to have the focus be on the brand split for weeks and then have the entire feud vanish soon thereafter. At least the wrestling should be good though.

What do you think of the concept? What do you want to see on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
