WWE Survivor Series 2013 [RUMORS]: John Cena Vs. Alberto Del Rio Rematch Planned? Daniel Bryan and CM Punk To Team Up? WWE Getting Rid Of Traditional Matches? [VIDEO]
One of the WWE's oldest and most popular pay-per-views launches Sunday Nov. 24, as the 27th annual Survivor Series spectacle takes place live from the TD Garden in Boston. Rumors have been flying as to what matches will take place at the event as well as whether or not there will be traditional four-on-four or five-on-five elimination tag matches like in year's past.
A report from Wrestlingheadlines.com indicates that newly crowned World Heavyweight Champion John Cena will most likely square off in a rematch with Alberto Del Rio for the gold. Cena returned last Sunday at the Hell in a Cell event in his first match since SummerSlam on Aug. 19 due to surgery he underwent to repair a torn triceps and distended elbow. Cena won the title from Del Rio and now the WWE is expected to push the program between the two into November and continue the feud into Survivor Series.
Wrestlingheadlines.com reports that officials backstage in WWE are looking for the Survivor Series event, which is the WWE's second oldest event behind only WrestleMania, to feel like a "big event again."
The site reports that The Big Show taking on Randy Orton for the WWE Championship or the Big Show taking on authority figure and COO Triple H at the Survivor Series event. Show has been involved in a feud with both men that has been the focal point on Monday Night RAW during Cena's absence, and it is all expected to come to a head in November.
Triple H was also being discussed to take on Daniel Bryan at Survivor Series, but Wrestlingheadlines.com reports that those talks have simmered down. Triple H has screwed Bryan out of the WWE title multiple times over the course of the last few months in the storyline, and officials were thinking of having Triple H and Bryan square off at Survivor Series, but have now reportedly been planning something else for Bryan at the November show.
After Bryan defeated Cena at SummerSlam in Cena's last match for two months, Triple H turned on him and allowed Orton to notch a victory over him when he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, and ever since then Triple H has screwed Bryan in favor of Orton in different ways over the last three pay-per-views--most recently when hand-picked referee Shawn Michaels delivered Sweet Chin Music to Bryan at Hell in a Cell last Sunday, leading to Orton winning the vacant title.
Wrestlingheadlines.com reports that Bryan will be paired with CM Punk and the two will side with two wrestlers yet to be determined to take on the Wyatt Family and one more unspecified Superstar in a four-on-four traditional elimination Survivor Series match. It's unknown at this time who Punk and Bryan will have as partners, but the Wyatts have recently feuded with The Miz , making him a possibility. It is also unknown who will join Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan on their team.
The site also reports that a four-way tag team match will be booked for the event between WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro and a team that has not been determined.
While these are all just rumors at the moment, they have all been discussed backstage according to Wrestlingheadlines.com, as the WWE hopes to make the Survivor Series event on Nov. 24 a big event like it has been in the past.
