With the WWE's 27th annual Survivor Series pay-per-view taking place live this Sunday, Nov. 24 from the TD Garden in Boston, the final card has started to take shape and it includes two title matches, a huge tag team match and two traditional Survivor Series matches to keep the tradition of the WWE's November Classic alive.

The newest additions to the card were announced on Monday Night RAW where it was revealed that there will be two traditional Survivor Series matches, one involving a five-on-five and the other pitting the Divas in a seven-on-seven elimination tag team match.
The five-on-five will put some of WWE's biggest midcarders in a match and focuses a lot on the tag division as the team of Cody Rhodes, Goldust, The Usos and Rey Mysterio, who returned on RAW, will take on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in the elimination format.
For the Divas match, 14 ladies will be involved as Cameron, Naomi, Natalya, Eva Marie, Jo Jo and The Bella Twins take on AJ Lee, Tamina Snuka, Alicia Fox, Kaitlyn, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes and Aksana.
In addition, the Miz turned heel on Monday's episode of RAW after turning on his tag team partner Kofi Kingston; it was later announced that the two will square off in the Survivor Series preshow match to get things rolling on Sunday night.
These new matches were made in addition to the contests on the card that were already in place. Randy Orton will defend his WWE Championship against The Big Show in a match that will most likely serve as a building point to further the Triple H and Big Show feud headed into their rumored match at WWE TLC in December.
John Cena, while he's reportedly hurting due to rushing back from surgery on his arm, will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio in a rematch from their last encounter at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view Oct. 27 that saw Cena return and win the belt in his first match back.
In tag team action, two of the WWE's biggest stars will team up as Daniel Bryan and CM Punk will take on Erick Rowan and Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family in a standard tag match.
The card seems mostly set in stone for Sunday's pay-per-view as the WWE emanates its 27th annual Survivor Series event live from the TD Garden in Boston.
