Below are some of the backstage notes for the upcoming Survivor Series PPV this Sunday, as reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
– Unlike what a lot of people are expecting, the Shield vs. New Day is going to be a regular tag match and not an elimination bout.
– Triple H, Braun Strowman, and John Cena are supposed to be ‘protected’ during the 5 on 5 traditional tag team elimination match.
– As reported by Pwinsider as well, another match is expected to be added to the pre-show for the PPV though no word yet on who will be the participants of it.
– All three Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are not pencilled for any match at the PPV but they are still expected to be used in some way.
– As noted before currently there are no plans for Paige to return during the show and the final spot of the female SmackDown team is expected to be fulfilled by Natalya.
