WWE Survivor Series

As word of a possible target from ISIS started circulating Saturday morning, WWE is undeterred about putting on Survivor Series Sunday in Atlanta, GA.

A publication called the International Business Times cited the online group known as Anonymous as discovering the Philips Arena and Sunday's Survivor Series as one of several possible worldwide ISIS threats that day.

PW Insider posted a short statement WWE made to them regarding the possiblity of postponing the event: "WWE Survivor Series is currently scheduled as planned while we investigate the matter with federal, state and local authorities."

Local FBI authorities told an Atlanta TV station that they are taking the threat seriously, but do not have "specific or credible information of an attack at this time." Local reporter Mark Winne has been tweeting updates today.

As of now, the event is scheduled as planned with the finals of the WWE World title tournament featuring Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio and Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens in the semifinals.
