The rumor mill continues to churn, and one of the hottest topics making the rounds recently revolves around the absence of none other than “The Tribal Chief” himself, Roman Reigns. According to reports from Billi Bhatti on The Dirty Sheets podcast, Reigns isn’t currently booked for two of WWE’s most anticipated events: Survivor Series and Royal Rumble.
WWE fans look forward to these marquee events each year, as they showcase the best the industry has to offer. This year, WWE is gearing up for its final two premium live events with Crown Jewel on November 4th, set to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Survivor Series on November 25th, scheduled to rock Chicago, IL at the United Center.
As reported by Wrestling News – One intriguing development surrounding Survivor Series is the rumor of a WarGames match, a concept that has captivated wrestling enthusiasts for years. WWE’s plans for this encounter remain shrouded in secrecy, with no official advertising as of yet.
The anticipation for Survivor Series is palpable, evidenced by the fervent ticket sales that commenced on July 21. The event’s tickets sold out in record time, with all 12,928 seats being snatched up by eager fans before October 15. Such resounding demand prompted WWE to expand the setup, opening up additional seating to accommodate over 15,000 fans. In total, more than 2,700 initially configured tickets were added, underscoring the unwavering passion of WWE’s dedicated fan base.
In the midst of this buzz, a rumor had been circulating that WWE might be gearing up for a Raw vs. SmackDown-themed WarGames match, adding a new layer of intrigue to Survivor Series. However, dispelling this speculation, Dave Meltzer shared a different perspective in the Daily Update on F4Wonline. He clarified, “On last night’s show based on an angle, we talked about the possibility of a Raw vs. SmackDown War Games match at Survivor Series. We are told that right now the War Games match is not planned as a Raw vs. Smackdown match.”
As the wrestling world anticipates these upcoming events, the absence of Roman Reigns, along with the mysteries surrounding the WarGames match, only intensifies the excitement and curiosity of fans. WWE’s ability to keep its audience on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the next twist and turn, is a testament to the ever-evolving nature of sports entertainment. In the world of professional wrestling, surprises are around every corner, and Survivor Series promises to be no different.
