Apart from the seating area, the arena comes with luxury suites, bars, clubs, restaurants, and lounges.

Previously, WWE has used this arena for Monday Night Raw, WrestleMania, and other episodes while touring via New York.

Even though there is no official announcement from either side about this, it’s possible WWE may lock down this venue for the PPV.

The Rock may return at WWE Survivor Series

According to various sources, WWE is planning to bring back The Great One at Survivor Series. It will be the 25th anniversary of his debut event. He debuted at Survivor Series 1996.

In fact, the 25th anniversary is a primary reason the company wants to bring back The Rock at Survivor Series. Even though it’s not confirmed yet, Survivor Series could become a tremendous success if this rumour turns out to be true!

If The Great One does return, his potential match would either be Roman Reigns or John Cena depending on who wins their match at SummerSlam 2021. Prior to Cena’s return, everyone assumed if The Brahma Bill returned, it would be against The Tribal Chief since he is the Universal Champion and the top guy on the roster.

Now, John Cena is back in the mix and he is definitely at par with Reigns if not bigger. The only way to keep all three of them in the game is by booking a triple threat match. And, The Rock is rumored to also wrestle at Survivor Series so he could technically interrupt a segment between Cena and Reigns and unleash havoc in the ring!
