WWE Survivor Series WarGames

WWE announced a major change to November’s Survivor Series event. First revealed by The Ring and later WWE.com, it has been announced that Triple H is bringing back the WarGames concept and combining it with Survivor Series. WWE Survivor Series WarGames will stream on November 26th.

Below is WWE’s announcement regarding the changes to Survivor Series:

WWE today announced that Survivor Series will feature both men’s and women’s WarGames matches. The Premium Live Event – branded WWE Survivor Series WarGames – will take place on Saturday, November 26 from TD Garden in Boston. The news was first reported by David Shoemaker of The Ringer.

This marks the first time in history that WarGames matches will take place on a WWE-branded event.

The men’s and women’s Survivor Series WarGames matches will feature teams of WWE Superstars stepping inside a massive steel cage surrounding two rings.  The match begins with one member from each team facing off, before additional competitors are added every few minutes thereafter. Once all Superstars have entered WarGames, a victory can be attained via pinfall or submission.

Tickets for Survivor Series WarGames are currently on sale through Ticketmaster and the event will stream live exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.  Additional information regarding Survivor Series WarGames will be announced in the coming weeks.


WWE NXT Level Up Preview

NXT: Level Up is airing tonight on WWE Network and Peacock. The newest WWE Network and Peacock program will be featuring three matches tonight. This includes Andre Chase vs. Myles Borne, Indi Hartwell vs. Valentina Feroz, plus Dante Chen in action.

Below is the preview for this episode:

On a can’t-miss edition of NXT Level Up, Andre Chase clashes with Myles Borne in a highly anticipated main event, Dante Chen locks horns with Bryson Montana, and Indi Hartwell engages Valentina Feroz.

The pressure is on for the dean of Chase University to provide his latest “teachable moment” to prized pupils Bodhi Hayward and Thea Hail, and he’ll need to use all his ring smarts if he is to defeat Borne, a hard-hitting newcomer.

Borne may still be finding his footing in WWE, but he turned in an impressive effort in a loss to Duke Hudson in his most recent appearance on NXT Level Up and will be seeking a signature win against Chase.

Chen is seeking his fourth win in his last five matches on NXT Level Up but accomplishing the feat will require him to outmaneuver Montana, an impressive athletic specimen.

Montana’s only win came when he took down Ru Feng, but the colossal competitor has gone toe-to-toe with the likes of Quincy Elliott and others.

Hartwell, who has gradually become more aggressive in recent weeks, is hoping to improve to 2-0 on NXT Level Up after previously beating Amari Miller in a barnburner.

One of the more popular competitors on WWE’s newest brand, Feroz aims for a bounce-back performance after a recent loss to Hail.

Don’t miss an amazing episode of NXT Level Up, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.
