The Survivor Series WarGames is approaching, and the event will be here before we know it. There is a lot of expectation for the show after WWE added WarGames to one of its Big Four pay-per-views. The show’s lack of announced matches at this stage and promotion, however, has raised a lot of concerns.

Former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently blasted the company for failing to generate enough buzz around the year’s last premium live event, Survivor Series. He should know about this kind of thing, because Russo was backstage for some massively historic Survivor Series moments.

Survivor Series WarGames will be held this year at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. WWE will abandon the brand vs. brand concept in favor of the deadly WarGames structure, which will finally make its debut on the main roster.

The stipulation, which was initially introduced for the WWE Universe in NXT, will feature a women’s and a men’s match. On recent episode of Writing with Russo, the wrestling veteran revealed that with only a few days till the premium live event, WWE has been unable to generate buzz for the matches.


I mean honestly, are we being critical by saying that? To me, that’s somebody not doing their job. Like is it critical for me to say that? It’s like 10 days away, whatever it is and we don’t… I don’t understand the reasoning behind that, I just don’t.

There are only four matches listed for Survivor Series, which takes place in less than a week. More matches could be added to the card during both companies’ go-home events. The event will include a SmackDown Women’s Championship contest between Ronda Rousey and Shotzi, as well as a singles match between AJ Styles and Finn Balor.

Bianca Belair, Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Mia Yim, and a mystery member will compete against Damage CTRL, which includes Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley, in the Women’s WarGames match. The Bloodline, led by Roman Reigns, will be the main event. They will be going up against The Brawling Brutes with Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens in the men’s WarGames encounter.

It remains to be seen whether more matches will be added to the premium live event during the upcoming episodes of RAW and SmackDown. Let’s see what happens. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
