Over the years, WWE Survivor Series has become one of the most important pay-per-views in WWE history. It is indeed one of those big four original events created by WWE, along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam.

Most of these four pay-per-views are hosted in USA and rarely other countries get to host these events. As per the reports of, this year, Canada will get the opportunity to host the 29th Annual WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view on November. The date of the event is yet to be confirmed.

The last event of WWE that took place in Canada was WWE Network’s exclusive Roadblock which featured Dean Ambrose and Triple H fighting each other for the WWE World Championship. But, Canada didn’t get any official WWE pay-per-view for 10 years, the last being Unforgiven 2006.

Canada has hosted WWE Survivor Series before. The Survivor Series 1997 was held at Molson Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. As most of us know, that event is infamous for the Montreal Screwjob. Vince McMahon had ordered for the bell to ring when Shawn Michaels had the then Champion Bret Hart in a Sharpshooter, although The Hitman didn’t tap out. With time, there has been several remakes of the infamous screwjob, the latest was at WWE Payback involving Charlotte and Natalya.
