Why WWE Have Hardly Promoted Survivor Series 2021 Reportedly Emerges

Survivor Series is just two weeks away

You would be forgiven for forgetting that WWE have one of their 'Big Four' pay-per-views coming up in just over two weeks, given the company have done little to promote or advertise Survivor Series 2021.

The annual 'battle for brand supremacy' is set to take place on Sunday 21 November but WWE have hardly indicated the event is coming up, let alone announced any matches for the show. 

Previous reports have suggested that Survivor Series will, once again this year, following the format of Monday Night Raw vs. Friday Night SmackDown, putting the respective rosters against each other in a battle of Champions and traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Matches.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE's lack of promotion for the event is deliberate.

The report indicates that WWE feel they pushed the last pay-per-view, Crown Jewel 2021, very hard on their consumers and have taken the decision to allow the new rosters to settle in on television following the 2021 Draft in October. 

WWE have been building towards fresh feuds and rivalries on Raw and SmackDown in recent weeks and the feeling is that fans know what to expect from Survivor Series, in terms of inter-brand warfare, and therefore the promotion can get away with only actively promoting the event in the final couple of weeks before it airs.

Meltzer also reports that the current card has two main-event matches listed internally in WWE, putting Universal Champion Roman Reigns against WWE Champion Big E, and Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch up against SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair.
