WWE has held an annual Survivor Series show since 1987. Historically, the show has been headlined by a Survivor Series match. This is an eight or ten-man elimination tag team match in which two teams fight for bragging rights.
In some cases, there have been stipulations in which a losing team has to be fired. For example, in Survivor Series 2014, the main event was The Authority vs. Team Cena. Had Team Cena lost, all of John Cena's teammates would have been fired. They didn't lose, which meant that The Authority was removed from power.
This year, there is a new twist on the Survivor Series event. WWE's head of creative Triple H revealed this year's event will be called Survivor Series: WarGames.
“We’ll have a men’s WarGames match and a women’s WarGames match. The tradition of the Survivor Series has ebbed and flowed and changed slightly over time, but this will be similar to that,” Triple H told The Ringer in an exclusive interview.
