Chicago to host WWE Survivor Series

Originally published at Chicago to host WWE Survivor Series

WWE is bringing the Survivor Series to Chicago.

The company has scheduled the annual event for Saturday, November 25 at the Allstate Arena with tickets going on sale later this month.

Friday Night SmackDown will take place inside the same arena the night prior.

From the press release:

WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced that Allstate Arena in Chicago will host Survivor Series on Saturday, November 25. Additionally, Friday Night SmackDown will emanate from Allstate Arena on Friday, November 24.

An exclusive presale opportunity for combo tickets for Survivor Series and Friday Night SmackDown will be available Wednesday, July 19 at 10 a.m. CT via Fans can register now to receive an exclusive presale offer by visiting

General public on-sale for combo tickets will be available Friday, July 21 at 10 a.m. CT
via Additional details on individual tickets being released for each event will be announced in the coming weeks.

It is only the third time Chicago has hosted the event with previous events in 1989 and 2019 at the Allstate Arena (previously named Rosemont Horizon).

Traditionally, AEW has run the city of Chicago on Thanksgiving Eve, so, if that continues it would mean AEW and WWE running the city within days of each other.

Last year’s Survivor Series was staged at the TD Garden in Boston with the first main roster WarGames match that led to a company topping a $1 million gate for the show.

Another Midwest PLE/PPV (I predicted it)

"Starrcade"in December from Atlanta??

Midwest is eating well with Wrestling Events.

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that WWE isn’t going to intentionally cost itself money. But it does seem off-brand to do four PLEs in four months all in the same 500 mile radius. I’d be curious to hear their reasoning (not that you ever get a “real” explanation from WWE corporate).
