Lost in the hulabaloo of the ending of RAW and the 2 hours and 50 minutes if nigh-unwatchable suck that preceded it is the announcement that WWE has re-instituted Survivor Series after announcing a few months back it was a goner.

I guess that makes sense. 23 years of fandom have been very attached to the name "Survivor Series" and with ECW gone, it can very easily become RAW vs. Smackdown in team on team matches. This probably means the end of Bragging Rights, which goes the way of the Scramble matches as revolutionary new concepts in sports entertainment.

If you're or will be in Miami, Survivor Series ticket info is here:

Can't really miss SS if it never left.

Good to see they came to their senses on this one.

The format could be tweaked. They could have gauntlet matches instead of an elimination match. I'm glad to see it remain. It's a long-standing tradition.

They did a tournament in 1998, and 1992 didn't have any SS matches that I recall, so it's not like they'd be forced to lock into the elimination matches style show.

I'm glad they kept the show around, and even having only a few 5 on 5 matches would be better than nothing. Maybe they realized it's a gimmick show and they want gimmick shows.

I do wonder how they'll keep up doing Bragging Rights and SS back to back every year, though.

Really, they should just combine the Bragging Rights and Survivor Series concepts. Raw vs. Smackdown 5-man elimination matches. Makes perfect sense, and I wondered why they didn't do it last year.

Very glad to hear this...Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series are the 4 parts of WWE's PPV foundation. They shouldn't be tinkered with. For that matter, I really wish they would have kept Backlash as well, was a fitting name coming off the biggest PPV of the year. Not only that, they can keep the SS matches brand loyal, except for perhaps one interbrand SS match, and let Bragging Rights stay as well.

I wonder if Vince will bring it back to Montreal?

HBK is always ready and willing to put the young guys over. Just ask Vader.
