Survivor Series is just around the corner and the WWE clearly has big plans for the pay-per-view extravaganza.

The show will emanate from the Air Canada Center on November 20 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and as one of the WWE's 'big four' PPVs, the company always tries to make this event feel a bit extra special.

In line with that, the company have apparently made a big change to the show for this year.

Much like SummerSlam, Survivor Series is set to be four hours long.

Ticketmaster sent out a notification to Survivor Series ticket holders advising them that the show will be starting an hour earlier than originally advertised, according to NoDQ.com.

It is unlikely that this means the three hours will happen at just an earlier slot, the WWE will be making room for another hour with several high profile matches already confirmed.

Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live will compete in three different traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series matchups, one featuring males superstars, one featuring female competitors and one with tag teams.

The major match that will surely need a fair amount of time and will likely close the show is the WrestleMania 20 rematch - 12 years later - between Brock Lesnar and a returning Goldberg.

Fans have been indifferent about a four-hour PPV in the past. Once the pre-show is factored in, that's five hours worth of wrestling that leaves some fans jaded, especially by the time they reach the main event.

Is it a good idea to extend Survivor Series with both brands on the event? Let us know in the comments below.
