Despite their being a WWE pay-per-view coming up this Sunday, it seems like a lot of the focus and attention is already on next month's Survivor Series.

Of course, there is a big reason for that, and that is Goldberg's return to the squared circle to face Brock Lesnar, the man he defeated at WrestleMania 20.

However, that isn't the only big match taking place on November 20 as Monday Night Raw takes on SmackDown LIVE in three traditional Survivor Series matches.

A 5-on-5 male elimination match, a 5-on-5 female elimination match, and a 5-on-5 tag team match will all take place at Survivor Series, with the blue brand already starting work on their teams.

On the latest episode of SmackDown LIVE, we saw Nikki Bella overcome Natalya, which means she will be captaining the female team for the blue brand, whilst the Hype Bros defeated The Ascension to get their name into the tag team match.

However, in what could be a massive blow for Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon, a big name superstar could be missing for them for the 5-on-5 male match.

According to 411Mania, Randy Orton could be missing Survivor Series this year due to his wife giving birth.

Orton and his wife are expecting a baby girl, and her due date is November 22, two days after Survivor Series.

Because of his wife giving birth, Orton has been given the week before the PPV off, and is not expected to return to the road until November 29, nine days after the event.

If Orton does miss Survivor Series, it's a big loss for team SmackDown LIVE, who will be without one of their biggest names.
