WWE made a big change to the Survivor Series lineup.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Atlanta, GA at the Philips Arena on the USA Network, Jason Jordan defeated Bray Wyatt in a singles match.
After the match, Wyatt attacked Jordan and WWE played up that Jordan suffered an injury as a result of that attack.
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle questioned if Jordan would be able to compete at this Sunday’s Survivor Series. Before Angle could make his decision, Triple H walked out to the ring and announced that he would be replacing Jordan on the Men’s Team Raw at Survivor Series.
The Survivor Series pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, November 19, 2017 in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets.
Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured. WWE sent out the following about the match:
“With Jason Jordan injured by Bray Wyatt and unable to compete at Survivor Series, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle found himself facing a tough executive decision — only he wasn’t the one who ended up making it.
Angle came to the ring to break the news that Jordan’s injury would take him out of Sunday's match, but the pleas of his son stopped The Olympic Hero from naming his substitute. As Angle struggled with his words, the plot quickly thickened when Triple H resurfaced on Raw for the first time since WrestleMania and took matters into his own hands, announcing himself as the final member of Team Raw.
As the final insult to Angle, The King of Kings then delivered a brutal Pedigree to the distraught Jordan. Just six days before Raw and SmackDown compete in head-to-head competition, it seemed the battle lines were drawn and the pieces were set. But now, the game has changed.”
Several members of the WWE Universe has sounded off about the change and Triple H returning to in-ring action, which you can see here:
