WWE officially started the build toward Survivor Series this week, and they might go about things a bit differently this year.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed WWE’s reason for keeping NXT off of Survivor Series this year. The thought is that all outbreaks have come from the black and gold brand as they meet much more often at their Performance Center.
The COVID-19 cautiousness as not dwindled throughout the company. In fact, it might go to change the way that they book the build toward Survivor Series. They will usually book invasion angles to hype the big event, but they decided to keep everyone on their own shows for now.
“If you noticed RAW and SmackDown haven’t even been sending people yet because they wanna keep those separate because if something happens they only want one brand infected. If you build it up the way it was last year where they had people from all three shows that she says that if someone is infected from the Performance Center it’s going to spread to all three rosters because if something happens they only want one brand infected.”
It will be interesting to see how WWE builds toward Survivor Series if they don’t book any invasion angles along the way. It is still very early in the planning so they might spring a surprise on fans sooner or later.
