Survivor Series will also feature NXT in the mix

WWE will keep no stones unturned to make Survivor Series 2019 a huge success.

For the first time in the pay-per-view history of the company, NXT will also actively be a part of a show consisting of the two main rosters.

This is an attempt from the WWE creative to make NXT more relevant in the pro-wrestling context and so to build the competition even higher with All Elite Wrestling promotion on Wednesday nights.

Meanwhile, rumours were claiming that the head of NXT, Triple H may return to in-ring competition at Survivor Series.

He has been an active part of the PPV buildup since day one which was a major indication that the Cerebral Assassin of the WWE may lace up his boots again, in order to keep the black and yellow brand on top of Raw and SmackDown.

However, that may not be the case as declared by The Game.

Triple H, the EVP of talent relations in WWE attended a media call to promote NXT TakeOver: WarGames.

He received a question of whether he is returning to action at Survivor Series. He confirmed that of not showing up as a wrestler but promised that there will be an ‘epic’ surprise waiting for the WWE Universe.

The Game added that the fifth member from the men’s Survivor Series team for NXT will not be revealed until and unless the day of the PPV.

This, in turn, would raise interest among the fans which should make the event a huge success.

Ringsidenews.com shed light on what could be the potential surprises waiting for the WWE Universe,

“WWE has a few NXT Superstars that they could debut at Survivor Series. There are a couple people like Johnny Gargano and Velveteen Dream who are currently out of action with an injury.

“Shawn Michaels is also around the WWE Performance Center and taking part in a Survivor Series elimination match would certainly be easier for him.”
