WWE to continue trend of AEW-style post-PPV press conferences at Survivor Series
Full Gear is over and the wrestling train continues. WWE will hold Survivor Series this Saturday, an event that will mark a big change for one of the longest running PPVs, or premium live events, in WWE history. WarGames’ first matches will take place on the main roster, and moves away from the tag battle theme that the event has had for the past six years.
WWE Post-PPV Press Conferences
Bringing up the WarGames concept of NXT is one of the many ways Triple H has put the black and gold brand on the main roster since taking on the role of Chief Creative Officer. Another way he’s done this is by holding post-show press conferences, which The Game will do again after Survivor Series, as revealed via WWE.com.
A mainstay of NXT and a common theme in AEW as well, WWE has confirmed that Triple H will be answering questions from the press after PLE on Saturday. This will be the second time WWE has done this with Triple H in charge, as there was also a press conference after Clash at the Castle. Fans will be able to watch live on WWE’s Facebook, YouTube and TikTok accounts.
Don’t expect an AEW affair
If you’ve never watched a WWE press conference before, either in NXT or the one after Clash at the Castle, don’t expect the same thing you’ll get from AEW. There won’t be CM Punk in an unexpected tirade that throws the promotion into chaos, or MJF cutting a planned promo everyone will love for days after. It will be a planned and polished presentation, but there will be superstars who have been on the show speaking during it.
As for Survivor Series itself, both WarGames matches are now set. As expected, The Bloodline will enter the two-ring cage and their opponents will be The Brawling Brutes. In the Women’s WarGames match, Damage CTRL will take on Team Belair, and elsewhere on the card, Shotzi will attempt to win the title from Ronda Rousey, while AJ Styles will attempt to end his three-year singles winless streak on PPV by defeating Finn. Balor.
