WWE have been known to change their plans in the past, and that could once again be happening as soon as Survivor Series, according to reports.
NoDQ recently posted about the pay-per-view this weekend and who would eventually leave the title tournament as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Many expect it to be a Roman Reigns vs Dean Ambrose final, with The Big Dog leaving on top, but that might not be the case.
The report says: "Over the past couple of days, there was a big push within creative for Dean Ambrose to make it to the tournament finals and leave Survivor Series with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

"While there are a lot of people within WWE pushing for Ambrose to win, this does not mean he will as the final decision is always made by Vince McMahon."
This doesn't come as a surprise, as many members of the WWE Universe are pushing for Ambrose to win the title as he is more of a fan favorite than Reigns.
What this instead further indicates, is that there could be a possible heel turn of Ambrose joining The Authority in order to win the title, rather than Reigns who is the favorite entering this matchup.
Reigns needs to be built up as the future face star of the company, and having him win the title through a tournament at Survivor Series, rather than a bigger stage like WrestleMania or SummerSlam, is not the way to go.
Build him up, have a rivalry with Ambrose, and finish it off with the two former Shield members squaring off for the title at WrestleMania, with Reigns leaving the show as WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Your call Vince McMahon.
