Survivor Series is one of WWE’s biggest events of the year and will feature Superstars from both Raw® and SmackDown®. The event will be broadcast around the world live on WWE Network. The 2017 Survivor Series marks the 30th anniversary of the historic event, which was first held in November 1987 from the sold out Richfield Coliseum in Richfield, OH.
This year’s Survivor Series takes place this Sunday, November 20 live from Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ONT. The event will be highlighted by a Mega Match twelve years in the making between WWE Superstars Brock Lesnar™ and Goldberg™.
Powell’s POV: It will be interesting to see whether WWE can turn Survivor Series into a travel destination for fans. They’ve achieved that with WrestleMania and even the Royal Rumble and SummerSlam to some degree, but Survivor Series feels like the weakest of their “big four” events.
