During Sunday night’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view event, Michael Cole announced that there were 15,120 fans in attendance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. As you know, WWE is known to inflate their attendance numbers so take this figure with a grain of salt.
During the late afternoon hours on Sunday, the original plan was to have Big E. vs. Roman Reigns open WWE Survivor Series, while Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair would have headlined the event. About an hour before the show went live, there was a “major change” and WWE reversed those plans and instead had Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair open the show, which resulted in Big E. vs. Roman Reigns being moved to the main event spot.
Also, the Women’s WWE Survivor Series match was originally set to be the second match on the show but that was pushed back to later in the show in favor of the Men’s WWE Survivor Series match because the company didn’t want to have back-to-back women’s matches open the show.
