WWE.com has posted the following explaining the rules of the traditional “Survivor Series” elimination match:

With “Survivor Series” fast approaching, get reacquainted with the rules of the match that put WWE’s autumn classic on the map: The Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match. The 10-Superstar war of attrition has been a staple ofSurvivor Series dating back to the inaugural event in 1987. With two teams of five locked in battle, the bout only ends when an entire team has been eliminated from action. Superstars can be eliminated in any of the following ways:

* Pinfall
* Submission
* Count-out
* Disqualification

Once eliminated, a Superstar must leave ringside and return to the locker room. The single-elimination format allows for the balance of power to continually shift throughout the match, giving way to potential scenarios as extreme as a 5-on-1 match-up. Those survivors who avoid elimination will be crowned the winners. Don’t miss the return of one of WWE’s most enduring contests — the Traditional 5-on-5 Elimination Tag Team Match — when Survivor Series airs live, only on WWE Network, Sunday, Nov. 22, at 8 ET/5 PT.

Today, Wrestling Observer Live was informed by a source within WWE that the next two weeks of Raw will be “rough viewing.” WWE has finalized some of the Survivor Series plans and according to Bryan Alvarez, things don’t look too good.
