The WWE is just over a month away from their last major pay-per-view of the year in Survivor Series. It’s set to be a star-studded event that will feature many intriguing matches. In light of that, the WWE has made a major announcement regarding the event, according to Wrestle Zone.
For the first time since the event’s debut in 1987, WWE Survivor Series has been expanded to a four-hour event, not including any of the usual kickoff show matches and analysis. WWE.com is listing this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view with a 7:00 p.m. EST start time, one hour before the show would normally begin airing.
The addition of another hour to the program could mean that the WWE will have a jammed pack card that will take up more time than originally anticipated. There are already four matches set for the event with three between each show and the mega bout between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg. This may mean that there are plenty more matches that could be booked.
This move also makes it clear that the WWE is trying to push the event as still being one of the big four during the year. The fact that the Lesnar vs. Goldberg match is headlining it clearly demonstrates how hard they getting into that status. Hopefully, this could be an exciting card full of top-notch matches.
