It was reported shortly after the WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view at the end of October that the WWE was going to go in a different direction with the WWE title after having Orton and Daniel Bryan feud over it for the last three months. With Bryan now out of the picture and Triple H feuding with the Big Show, rumors began to surface that Show would battle Orton at Survivor Series and then Triple H at WWE's TLC pay-per-view in December.
The Big Show has been feuding with Triple H for months, and he was banned from the WWE by "The Game" last week. However, this past Monday's episode of RAW gave the storyline a new swerve as the Board of Directors didn't want to have the WWE go through Show's lawsuit against Triple H and were forced to reinstate him. Triple H gave him a title match with Orton at the PPV after Big Show threatened him, however he also set him up for a beat down at the hands of The Shield, Kane and Orton as the show went off the air Monday night.
With the WWE title match squared away, there are still many rumors flying around over what else the WWE has in store for its second oldest event, including what will be done with World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. While only one match has been made, reports over the weekend by Inside Pulse Wrestling confirmed that 80% of the Survivor Series card was laid out and Cena will either take on Alberto Del Rio in a rematch or be involved in a traditional elimination Survivor Series tag match, as the WWE isn't ready to launch a full program between Cena and Damien Sandow yet.
Other rumored matches include a tag match pitting the Wyatt family against CM Punk and Bryan, with a possible addition of other superstars on each side to turn it into a traditional match, though the report over the weekend stated there will likely be no more than two elimination tag matches. It is expected that Dean Ambrose will take on Big E Langston for the United States Championship as well at the event.
Elsewhere, it seems as though Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins may team with the Real Americans to take on The Usos and the Rhodes brothers in a traditional match, or that all four teams will go up against each other in a four-way tag team match for the Tag Titles. The Divas are also rumored to be involved in a traditional match, but there have been no updates as there are only expected to be two elimination matches.
The card remains mostly a mystery for Survivor Series Nov. 24, but the WWE has taken strides by announcing an Orton and Big Show match for the WWE Title.
