Survivor Series to Go Ahead as Planned

WWE have confirmed that tonight’s Survivor Series event will go ahead as scheduled, despite the threat of a terrorist attack.

It as reported yesterday that online activists Anonymous had named tonight’s event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia as a possible target for an attack by ISIS, following the attacks in Paris last week. The FBI issued a statement to Action 2 News, confirming that they were taking the treat very seriously, however stressing that no “credible confirmation” of an attack exists.

“The FBI is aware of reports of an alleged threat that includes an Atlanta, Georgia venue and event. While we take all threats seriously, we do not have specific or credible information of an attack at this time. We have, however, made the proper notifications as we continue to work closely with our law enforcement and private sector partners to keep our community safe.”

WWE have now confirmed in a statement that the event will take place as planned;

“Federal, state and local law enforcement authorities have confirmed there is no specific or credible information involving a threat against tomorrow’s WWE Survivor Series at Philips Arena.

However, WWE and Philips Arena have coordinated with the appropriate agencies and law enforcement, and significantly increased security measures to ensure the safety of all those in attendance, which is our highest priority.

Doors will open at 6 PM to help fans avoid any delays in entering the arena due to the additional precautionary security procedures put in place.  Fans are encouraged to take public transportation (MARTA) to the event and are advised that bags will not be permitted in the arena.”
