It might seem a bit early to make any speculations, but Survivor Series is known for its traditional ten man tag team match. Previously, Raw and SmackDown competed with each other for brand supremacy. However, WWE has different plans this year.

If this report turns out to be true, the match will surely be an interesting one. WWE’s honor will be on the line and we might see warring factions unite against the common enemy.

Survivor Series will emanate from the WWE ThunderDome in November. Thus, WWE has adequate time to build multiple interesting storylines. Due to generally negative reviews, WWE must step up their game.
