There are only two weeks left for one of the most popular pay-per-views in the WWE, the 2015 Survivor Series. Many questions surround the event, which will take place Nov. 22 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, especially after the loss of current WWE champion Seth Rollins, who is out for six to nine months with a torn ACL and MCL.
The WWE announced last week that Rollins will have to forfeit his title and a new Survivor Series tournament will be announced soon. This is crushing blow and marks the second time in two years that a WWE champion has had to forfeit his title (Daniel Bryan).
There has been a rumor that the WWE has contacted John Cena to take Rollins’ spot, but it is only hearsay as of right now. Cena is supposed to be out until mid-December while he films his new show for Fox. The WWE will have to do something because there have been numerous injuries to top superstars Randy Orton, Rusev, Sting and Tyson Kidd, among others.
The PPV will also mark 25 years that the Undertaker has been a part of the WWE, and it seems as if he will be teaming up with Kane to face the Wyatt family, which is becoming an interesting storyline all on its own. This is the second time this year the Undertaker has had a feud with Bray Wyatt (Wrestlemania 31).
The other titles that are going to be defended at Survivor Series include: the WWE Tag Team Championship, Divas, Intercontinental and United States. However, the only one that has a match set is the Diva’s championship, where Charlotte will take on Paige.
The next two weeks will be very interesting to see how the WWE handles the loss of Seth Rollins, but there are plenty of options and surprise returns if the Series gets desperate. This will be one of the WWE’s toughest tasks to get the booking right which should lead to more interesting storylines.
