Original Plans for the WWE Title Match at Survivor Series

Despite Edge showing up and winning the WWE Title, the plan at one point was to hold a triple threat match between Triple H, Vladimir Kozlov, and Jeff Hardy at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view, as advertised and determined on SmackDown. The reason Hardy was added to the match was because WWE officials were concerned that a singles match between Hunter and Kozlov would not be entertaining, which we all saw live, so Hardy was added to make the match better.

There was no serious consideration given to putting the WWE Title on Hardy and the buzz was that the company wanted to protect Kozlov, but not put the WWE Title on him either. It’s logical to assume that Hardy would have done the job had they went ahead with the match and not come up with the storyline with Edge entering the match and winning the WWE Title. Vince McMahon was said to be “noncommittal” regarding the finish of the match.
