WWE Survivor Series 2016: 5 Rumours you need to know
Goldberg, championships trading brands, a huge return and more.
Survivor Series 2016 is definitely one of the most hyped editions of the PPV in recent years. A stacked card sees Raw and SmackDown take on each other in 3 Survivor Series-style matches for the men, women and tag-teams along with the rematch 13 years in the making – Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg.
We saw the men of SmackDown Live invade Raw last week while the women of Raw invaded SmackDown Live on the following night. Tensions between both brands are simmering as we’re less four days away from Survivor Series.
We now know that Shane McMahon will be the last member of team SmackDown and will lead his troops from the frontline. That match also sees SmackDown mascot James Ellsworth come into contact with Braun Strowman – who made Ellsworth famous after crushing him on his first squash match on Raw. Who will ultimately leave Survivor Series as the triumphant brand? It’s a tough one to predict.
Rumours about Survivor Series have been flying thick and fast, so without further ado let’s take a look at some of the latest rumours surrounding Sunday’s PPV.
5: A special appearance by The Rock
The Rock made his WWE debut in the 1996 edition of Survivor Series under the moniker Rocky Maiva. WWE have been posting videos celebrating The Rock’s 20-year WWE anniversary all week long, celebrating his illustrious WWE career.
Although there has been no mention or hint about The Rock making an appearance at Survivor Series it all seems very suggestive and the latest rumours seem to indicate that ‘The People’s Champion’ could make a special appearance at Survivor Series 2016 to celebrate his 20 years in WWE with the WWE Universe in Toronto.
