WWE went against booking the traditional men’s elimination tag team match in the headliner of this year’s Survivor Series show. Instead, they went in a different direction.
As seen at Sunday’s (November 24, 2019) WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena on the WWE Network, NXT Champion Shayna Baszler defeated Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley in a triple threat match as part of the interbrand theme of the show.
It was a big test as this marked the first time that Baszler headlined a main roster WWE pay-per-view event but that shouldn’t come as a surprise considering reports of officials being high on her and praised by many backstage.
After the match, Lynch attacked Baszler, who was posing, when she put Baszler through a table.
In the contest, the lack of crowd reactions was obvious. The WrestleVotes Twitter account shed some light on what WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon thought about the headliner.
It turns out that McMahon didn’t like the match. You can see the tweet here:
