WWE Survivor Series 2018 results, news, history and information

Courtesy of WWE

The 2018 edition of Survivor Series takes place on Sunday, Nov. 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. It's the 32nd edition of Survivor Series, and most of the matches pit superstars from Raw and SmackDown against one another in a series of inter-promotional matches. The match format that Survivor Series has become famous for -- elimination tag team matches -- will once again feature prominently with one women's 5-on-5 elimination match, one men's 5-on-5 elimination match and a third featuring a handful of tag teams from Raw and SmackDown facing off. There will also be a cruiserweight championship match featured on the card.

Survivor Series, like WWE's other three signature pay-per-views (WrestleMania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam) has become a four-day run of consecutive shows in the same city. NXT TakeOver: War Games II kicks off the action on Saturday night, followed by Survivor Series (Sunday), Raw (Monday) and SmackDown (Tuesday).
