Backstage News On WWE's Plans For Title Changes Before Survivor Series

Will any of WWE's championships change hands before all of Raw and SmackDown Live's champions square off at Survivor Series?

This year's Survivor Series is going to be a big one. Much like last year's event, the pay-per-view is being centered on the Superstars of Raw doing battle with their SmackDown Live counterparts. The build has already begun too as the blue brand invaded Raw on Monday night and laid waste to the majority of their rivals' roster.


Even though Survivor Series is still over three weeks away there are already six matches booked for the event. There will be two traditional Survivor Series tag team matches, one featuring the men and another for the women. The other four matches will all be champion versus champion affairs. Jinder Mahal against Brock Lesnar, The Miz versus Baron Corbin, plus matches for the Tag Team and Women's Champions of both brands.

While there will definitely be four champion-versus-champion matches, WWE is making out that the competitors in said bouts are subject to change. Naturally, with Survivor Series still a number of weeks away, some of those titles could change hands. However, according to Cageside Seats, that is not the plan and the matches as they are right now will be the ones that take place on Nov. 19, 2017.

Clearly, the Lesnar vs Mahal match is one that WWE is dead set on, and considering the excitement from fans regarding The Usos versus Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins they would be fools to make changes to that matchup. Miz vs Corbin and Natalya against Alexa Bliss, however, are not as highly anticipated. Don't be surprised if Charlotte takes the SmackDown Women's Championship from Nattie before Survivor Series and if Corbin or Miz lose one of their titles to a babyface to make that match up more balanced.


As it stands, it really does feel like almost anything could happen between now and Survivor Series, as demonstrated by the anarchy on Monday night. Plus, WWE constantly planting the seed in our minds that a title could change hands often means that it'll happen. Due to the reports, it's most likely that at this moment in time even WWE doesn't know if there will be any title changes before Nov. 19, 2017. As of right now, there are none scheduled, but anything can change in the next three weeks.
