“We think Survivor Series is obsolete,” McMahon said. “It worked many, many years ago. It was one of the original four, but it’s outlasted its usage.”
McMahon added that Survivor Series will be re-branded in 2010 and the title will be going away.
“It’s one of the PPVs we will be looking at in terms of re-branding. We will no longer have that title anymore,” McMahon said.
Survivor Series 2009 was down 26.3 percent compared to the 2008 event. In WWE’s fourth quarter, three re-branded PPVs were up in PPV buys, with Survivor Series being the only PPV that was down.
