WWE Survivor Series 2020 is just under two months away, and the 2020 WWE Draft could drastically alter each brand, but how might that night come together?
WWE Survivor Series 2020 is less than two months away, and excitement is already started to build towards what has become the annual battle of the brands. The 34th installment of the event is scheduled for November 22, 2020, and while a venue isn’t confirmed, it wouldn’t be surprising if WWE were still broadcasting from their virtual WWE Thunderdome inside Orlando’s Amway Center.
While recent history has shown us that two short months might not actually change the landscape of WWE as much as you might think, there are some crucial events taking place between now and WWE Survivor Series 2020 that could significantly shake things up. The biggest is the 2020 WWE Draft, which is set to start on the October 9th episode of SmackDown and conclude on the October 12th episode of WWE Raw.
While the format and details, as well as how WWE NXT might play into things, remain unknown, the 2020 WWE Draft is sure to drastically change the makeup of each brand in some way. We’ve got at least two other huge events set to take place before WWE Survivor Series 2020.
The first is NXT TakeOver: 31, set for this Sunday, will have at least three championships on the line. WWE Hell in a Cell 2020, scheduled for October 25, could be main evented by Sasha Banks and Bayley and might cap off several of the biggest rivalries we’ve seen this year.
Much of the makeup of WWE Survivor Series 2020 could hinge on the way these three other events play out, but we can look at the recent history of WWE Survivor Series to get an indication of how this year’s show might look. Since the re-introduction of WWE’s brand separation in 2016, we’ve seen a “Brand vs. Brand” theme become a mainstay of WWE Survivor Series with WWE often advertising it as the one time every year that superstars from separate brands will go to war.
In the four WWE Survivor Series pay-per-views since then, they’ve had between one and three matches take place during the Kickoff Show and five to seven during the main card. Last year was the first time NXT got added to the mix, and we can likely expect more “Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT” and “Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion” matches.
With all that in mind, here’s a look at exactly how WWE Survivor Series 2020 might look and some of the potential dream matches that might round out a chaotic night of wrestling.
