Last month we reported that WWE would hold the 2012 Survivor Series pay-per-view in Pittsburgh, PA on November 18th.
New reports now indicate that the NFL schedule came out a few weeks ago, WWE and the Consol Energy Center arena realized the Pittsburgh Steelers would be playing on the night of Sunday, November 18th in Pittsburgh against the Baltimore Ravens for NBC Sunday Night Football.
WWE has decided they don’t want to compete locally with the Steelers game taking place at the same time, so although Consol Energy Center is still being listed as the location of the PPV, it will not be held there. WWE then wanted to tape Smackdown two days later on November 20th at Consol, but the arena already signed to have Justin Bieber in concert that night.
WWE had wanted to make the official announcement to the live crowd that Survivor Series would be in Pittsburgh when they last came to Pittsburgh on May 14th for Monday Night RAW, but obviously that didn’t happen.
Sources say that WWE usually picks the date they want to run a PPV and work around that date. As of now, nobody can confirm when and where Survivor Series is going to take place.
