When WWE first announced that for the first-time ever NXT would be featured in the interbrand promotion for Survivor Series, many fans expected to see Brock Lesnar (WWE Champion) vs. Bray Wyatt (WWE Universal Champion) vs. Adam Cole (NXT Champion) in a Triple Threat Match at the show.
However, unlike most of the matches on the card, the three champions won’t be wrestling with each other. Instead, WWE had other plans for them.
Lesnar will defend the WWE Title against Rey Mysterio in a No DQ Match while Wyatt will defend the Universal Title against Bray Wyatt, and Cole will defend the NXT Title against the winner of the #1 contender’s match (Killian Dain vs Pete Dunne vs Damian Priest ) from TakeOver: WarGames III.
Triple H took part in a conference call with the media on Wednesday where he noted that Cole vs Wyatt vs Lesnar was originally discussed for Survivor Series.
However, WWE officials felt that the storyline between Rey and Brock was too good to step away from. WWE also felt that Wyatt works better in his own storyline.
Thus, that’s the reason why WWE didn’t book these stars together in one match but rather in their own separate matches.
WWE holds the Survivor Series pay-per-view event on Sunday, November 24, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena and will air on the WWE Network.
