The format of WWE Survivor Series is unlikely to change despite Vince McMahon’s retirement from the company.
Since the Brand Split in 2016, Survivor Series has been built up as a special Raw v SmackDown show, with Superstars from WWE’s top brands competing in matches against each other.
The format isn’t exactly popular with fans, as many have questioned why the wrestlers are wanting to put aside their respective feuds and fight for brand supremacy when there is nothing for them to gain out of it.
So, when Triple H became Head of Creative for WWE following Vince McMahon’s retirement on July 22, many fans speculated, and even hoped, that ‘The Game’ would change up the pay-per-view’s format.
However, the logo for the show, which is scheduled to take place on November 26, and it’s unfortunately not good news for WWE fans.
As you can see below, the logo still has a blue and red colour scheme, so it’s likely that the Raw v SmackDown format is going to be staying, at least for this year’s show.

This does make it seem like the show will be #WWERaw v #SmackDown themed again.

Of course, this is by no means 100% confirmation that WWE isn’t going to be changing up the format for this year’s show, but it certainly does suggest that alterations won’t be made.
You have to think that if WWE wanted to distance themselves away from the Raw v SmackDown format for the show they’d change up the colour scheme for the logo, but that doesn’t appear to have happened.
Not only that, but the fact that it’s a blue and red colour scheme also suggests that NXT 2.0 isn’t going to be involved with the show.
Some fans also speculated that should Triple H want to keep the format to Survivor Series, he’d at least look to involve NXT stars once again.
NXT was involved with Survivor Series in 2019, shortly after the brand’s move to the USA Network, and the change was received very well by fans.
Given Triple H’s affinity with NXT and many of the wrestlers on the brand, some thought that he’d look to include it at Survivor Series in some capacity.
However, again based on the aforementioned logo for the show and its colour scheme, it also doesn’t look like NXT 2.0 is going to be involved at all.
