One of the WWE's flagship events has reportedly been threatened by ISIS.

Tonight, Survivor Series is due to take place in Atlanta but the event, eagerly awaited all over the world, is being looked at by the FBI after an alleged threat by ISIS, according to a report on Fox Sports.

In a statment, the FBI said:

"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."

The event is due to kick off at the Philips Arena in Atlanta tonight and the WWE themselves have also issued a statement, assuring fans the event still goes ahead.

WWE superstar Triple H, now an Executive Vice President of the company, issued the statement on Twitter.
