WWE News: Change in Survivor Series timing, PPV to be four hours long
The event will see superstars from Raw and Smackdown collide with each other in 3 traditional tag team matches.
The 30th edition of the WWE Survivor Series is scheduled to take place on 20 November 2016 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The pay-per-view will reportedly be a 4-hour long affair and will be preceded by a pre-show which will run for an hour.
This has been a trend with most of WWE’s major pay-per-views over the past year or so and this year’s edition of Summerslam was the last event to have a duration of 4 hours. However, there has been very little clarity so far about the matches that will be fought at the 2016 Survivor series.
WWE also changed the start time of the show as seen in the tweet below:
The only match that has been announced for the pay-per-view is the one between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg, which is most likely to be the main event. Apart from that, three traditional tag team matches are also due to take place even though there is not much information about the participants.
These three matches will see superstars from the Raw brand competing against those from rivals Smackdown and there will be one match each for men, women and tag teams.
So far, we only know that Nikki Bella will lead the Smackdown women’s team and that The Hype Bros and the Rhyno-Heath Slater combination will represent the brand in the tag team match.
Once WWE Raw is done hosting its exclusive pay-per-view, Hell In A Cell, this Sunday, things will start to fall into place and build-ups for the Survivor Series matches will begin.
Considering the successful brand split between Raw and Smackdown that happened earlier this year, we can expect this year's Survivor Series to be an exhilarating affair like none other.
