WWE Cruiserweight Title Match, Battle Royal Added To Survivor Series Kickoff Show

Another title match...

The Survivor Series card received a late addition on Sunday afternoon, with a Cruiserweight title match added to event, as learned on WWE Now.

Lio Rush is putting the championship on the line in a triple threat match, which seems to be custom for this event. The match is also brand-oriented, as the NXT star defends the gold against Raw's Akira Tozawa, and SmackDown's Kalisto.

In addition, Mike Johnson of PWInsider adds that a (presumably tri-branded) battle royal has been added to the Kickoff show.

Johnson also claims that the triple threat tag team match has been moved to the Kickoff show as well.
