Once a year Smackdown and Raw go head-to-head to determine who is the dominant brand. In 2019, NXT joined the mix, but the Wednesday night show will not be a part of Survivor Series this year. This year’s battle is all about the red and blue brands as champions will be facing champions. But who will come out on top and how do you watch the WWE 2020 PPV?
Coming to the Amway Center on Sunday, November 22, the next WWE PPV will feature numerous matches. However, unlike most events, there won’t be any titles on the line. If you’re planning on watching, here are the start times for Survivor Series across the globe.
- 4 PM PT
- 6 PM CT
- 7 PM ET
- 12 AM GMT (November 23)
- 11 AM AEDT (November 23)
Keep in mind that because Survivor Series is one of the bigger WWE events during the year, the Kickoff Show for the event tend to be two hours long. WWE has yet to confirm this but following suit with what the company has done in previous yeas, the PPV could technically kick off at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET.
How to watch:
If you’re planning on watching Survivor Series, there are one of two ways to check it out. You can get it through your local cable or satellite provider, but that can be a bit costly. The other watch to watch the PPV is through the WWE Network, the company’s streaming service. It costs $10 a month, and in addition to watching live-streamed events, you can also check out a massive catalog of in-ring competition and original programming.
Additionally, the Kickoff Show is available to watch on the free tier of the WWE Network–which you can also watch on Twitter and YouTube when it airs live on Sunday.
One of the big draws to the WWE PPV is none other than the traditional Survivor Series match which sees Raw and Smackdown each pick five competitors for a tag team elimination match. There are only six matches on the card right now–none of which have been announced for the Kickoff Show. There may be some other late additions to show, especially after November 20’s episode of Smackdown. We’ll keep you updated as more matches are added. For now, here’s what’s booked for Survivor Series.
- Men’s Survivor Series Match
- Women’s Survivor Series Match
- Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn
- The New Day vs. The Street Profits
- Asuka vs. Sasha Banks
- Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
Like the rest of the internet, we have some predictions about the upcoming PPV as well. Here’s who we think will come out on top for the PPV.
Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns
This is a main event match that feels right. Reigns has been on fire since his return, working as a heel. And McIntyre has been a fantastic babyface champion over on Raw. This is one of those “stars are aligned” moments in WWE programming we don’t get that often in a main event spot. Although this is a Survivor Series special, this is a match I would want to see continue into Mania. Anyway, I feel like this is all for Reigns to win, continuing his rise as the head of the table which will lead to a fully-formed stable over on Smackdown. And although McIntyre has been involved in a fruitless feud with Randy Orton, a loss could be good for him here, giving his character something to strive for in the future and to put him on the road to redemption. Roman Reigns wins this.
Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn
If you listen to GameSpot’s wrestling podcast, Wrestle Buddies–hey, there’s an episode above featuring an interview with Johnny Gargano about wheels–then you know Chris E. Hayner and I love the Hurt Business. We also love Sami Zayn. Undoubtedly, this is going to be a great match between secondary singles champions from Raw and Smackdown. However, it’s hard to see Zayn come out as the winner. Even if he does get a leg up on Lashley, he’s got the Hurt Business to back him up. Lashley picking up the win here makes sense, but that may just be because I’m a huge Hurt Business fan.
