PWInsider is reporting that there was a “minor freak out” backstage at WWE Survivor Series during the main event.
The show was supposed to go off the air by 11:35 pm eastern and it looked like they were running long but they were able to finish on time.
It was noted that there were people backstage wondering why so much time was given to the entrances for the Men’s elimination match as those entrances took up so much time on the show.
Earlier today, there were reports stating that Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair would close out the show and Roman Reigns and Big E would be the opener.
However, PWI states that the order of the matches were locked in weeks ago but members of the production team had the show listed in reverse order on their run sheet early in the afternoon.
The producers for the pay-per-view were:
Chris “Abyss” Park (Nakamura/Priest)
Tyson Kidd (Lynch/Flair)
Shawn Daivari, Adam Pearce, Shane Helms (Men’s elimination match)
Shane Helms (Usos/RK-Bro)
Tyson Kidd, Patt Buck (Women’s elimination match)
Michael Hales (Reigns/Big E)
