Note On Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal Headlining Survivor Series

Brock Lesnar

It was reported on Friday that Universal Champion will face the WWE Champion at next month’s dual-branded Survivor Series pay-per-view.

According to Dave Meltzer of, the match would be Brock Lesnar vs. Jinder Mahal, with neither the Universal Championship nor WWE Championship on the line.

Meltzer stated on today’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE has had the idea for a long time of doing Raw vs. SmackDown matches at the Survivor Series. Meltzer added that there may be more Raw vs. SmackDown matches at the show.

Lesnar headlined last year’s Survivor Series. That’s where he lost to Goldberg in just over a minute, with their feud continuing all the way to WrestleMania. The rest of the card last year was built around Raw vs. SmackDown LIVE matches.

As noted earlier today, it appears that Mahal may still be WWE Champion when WWE tours India for a two-show tour December as he’s scheduled to defend his title against Kevin Owens.

Survivor Series takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on November 19. The venue will also host NXT TakeOver: WarGames the night before, as well Raw and SmackDown LIVE in the days after the Survivor Series.
