Since the late-80s, WWE’s PPV has been built around the Big Four and to this day, they remain four of the biggest shows of the year. The weakest link of them that still chugs along from year to year is Survivor Series. Nowadays, it’s been given new life thanks to the Brand Extension as the show is based on having Raw take on SmackDown head-to-head. This November, it’s time for WWE Survivor Series 2017.
While the Raw vs. SmackDown aspect is around, Survivor Series is known for tag team elimination matches. Back in the day, the show was nothing but four-on-four or five-on-five matches. Then that petered out and they became novelties that would happen once or twice, if that.
Last year’s event is mostly remembered for the mind-breaking Goldberg vs. Lesnar squash match main event.
