Survivor Series is looking to be a pretty stout event. We have a batch of champion vs. champion matches plus a gigantic traditional Survivor Series 5on5 match that is promising to be one of the most stacked main events in WWE history.
There have been rumors of a few other surprises but those have been kept under wraps until now. A poster for the Fall classic leaked online and has the wrestling Internet going bonkers! Apart from revealing a few minor surprises, it tells us that a certain megastar is coming back to the WWE ring, but will be officiating a match instead of wrestling.

Yes. That is right. JOHN CENA is back! He is going to be the special guest referee for the Mahal vs. Lesnar Champion vs. Champion match. This was rumored for a while and is believed to help build towards Cena facing off against Mahal at Wrestlemania next year.
Other Spoilers On The Poster
It seems like Finn Balor will be involved and on the Raw Survivor Series team alongside the already named Kurt Angle and Braun Strowman. Reigns also appears to be joining the Red Team. That leaves just one more open spot rumored to be going to Samoa Joe or Kane. As for Smackdown, there is just one spot to fill. The November 7th Smackdown will feature a qualifying match between AJ Styles and the elated Rusev. If this poster is to be taken at face value, it seems like Styles is slated to win that match. The Phenomenal One will join fellow TNA import Bobby Roode, Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon, Shinsuke Nakamura and the Viper Randy Orton as the men representing Smackdown Live in the Survivor Series match.
Just looking at that line-up and it is the best since 2014 at least.
