WWE SURVIVOR SERIES 2007
PREVIEW


Sunday 18th December

Continental Arena
Meadowlands, New Jersey





TRIPLE MAIN EVENT





Streetfight
Triple H vs Mr. McMahon


These two men have been at each others throats for years, but just three weeks ago, the deep root of their hatred was exposed by Mr. McMahon’s only daughter Stephanie. Not only did the bombshell rock the McMahon family, but it shocked the wrestling world as Stephanie announced in front of the entire world that she and Triple H are a married couple. We were let further into the family feud as Stephanie again spoke in front of the viewing audience, explaining that her father had never approved of her husband as an acceptable son-in-law, and that’s why he has put Triple H through hell lately. The Chairman of the Board even admitted he may have deceived The Game over the amount of votes he got at Cyber Sunday for a shot at the WWE Championship, a match that saw CM Punk allegedly receive the majority of the votes.

This past week on Raw however, the rivalry carried on even further, further than anyone could possibly have imagined as Triple H dropped another bombshell, telling his father-in-law that Hornswoggle, the person Mr. McMahon believed to be his illegitimate child was actually not his son. The King of Kings continued to let his anger evaporate, explaining to Vince that he and Stephanie deceived him in this way to try and make him act responsibly towards someone who needed guidance and looking after, in the hope that he would show some compassion and feeling towards their daughter. It appears that Mr. McMahon has had nothing to do with his granddaughter since she was born, something that deeply hurts Stephanie, Triple H and Mrs. McMahon too.

However, Triple H did offer his long term rival an escape clause last Monday night, giving him the chance to have an easy night this Sunday. The Game said he would pull out of their match and reveal who in fact Mr. McMahon’s illegitimate child is if the self made billionaire would except him into the family and treat his granddaughter like he does his other grandkids. After debating over a seemingly reasonable offer, Mr. McMahon answered by telling an angry Triple H he would never accept him as a son-in-law. Accepting the decision, The King of Kings took it quite well and said Stephanie and Linda may have not received the answer they wanted to hear, but he certainly did as he can now get the chance to beat the hell out of his father-in-law this Sunday, then displayed his hatred by giving Mr. McMahon a long overdue pedigree. It seems we could be in for a war when these two go head to head this weekend.





Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Team HBK (Shawn Michaels, Matt Hardy, The Undertaker & Chris Jericho)
vs Team Orton (Randy Orton, Finlay, Mr. Kennedy & MVP)


William Regal was very enthusiastic about putting together a match that could create a legacy in the history of the Survivor Series, and it appears he has done just that. Approaching the WWE Champion, Randy Orton several weeks ago, the now Smackdown General Manager asked Orton whether he would be interested in leading one of two teams in a traditional elimination match. Once assured his title would not be on the line, Orton agreed. With one captain set, Smackdown’s WWE United States Champion, Montel Vontavious Porter made his interest extremely clear to lead the other team, but rumours were rife that night speculating that the role had already been taken. The Franchise Player as he likes to call himself, didn’t seem to believe it, but he had no choice but to believe it at the end of the night when Shawn Michaels revealed himself as the face of the cryptic messages we had been seeing over previous weeks in front of his delirious hometown fans in San Antonio.

Michaels’ and Orton’s history goes back to earlier this year, when Orton put Michaels on the shelf with a severe concussion, an injury Orton intends to repeat this Sunday. Michaels on the other hand is content with evening the score and leading his team to victory. Over the past couple of weeks, The Heartbreak Kid has played mind games with The Legend Killer on several occasions, keeping him guessing on who his partners would be. After announcing Matt Hardy as his first, he kept Orton in the dark before a six man tag team match later that night, with The Undertaker revealing himself as team member number three. And just over a week ago, Michaels promised a huge surprise for Team Orton on Smackdown, and boy did he deliver, as Y2J Chris Jericho returned to the WWE to complete the make up of Team HBK, only after Michaels had elbow dropped Orton through the announce table. With MVP, Kennedy and Finlay joining Orton, does either team have any kind of advantage?

On Raw this past Monday, Orton reminded us all about his record at the Survivor Series, being the sole survivor three out of four years and beating The Showstopper on two of those occasions. This brought Michaels out and then brought home bad memories of last year for Orton, reliving in graphic detail how Orton was on the wrong end of a whitewash. Orton was quick to point out the achievements he’s made this year and intends to finish 2007 in style, by beating Michaels once again. However, later in the night, Orton and Michaels met in a tag team match, and it was Michaels’ team picking up the win as Jericho defeated MVP, with Orton also getting a dose of sweet chin music. But Friday night on Smackdown, Orton made sure he made his mark in a typical Legend Killer manner. With all Raw superstars banned from the arena by William Regal, Michaels and Matt Hardy took on MVP and Finlay in tag team action. With the match getting towards the close, Orton jumped the barricade with Mr. Kennedy, RKO’d Hardy on the outside before entering the ring and delivering the deadly running punt to Michaels’ head, in a flashback to earlier this year. That was not enough for Orton, as he instructed his team to lift Michaels up, and then executed the RKO to his opposing captain this Sunday. Will this match have the oh so familiar ending with Orton involved, or will Michaels get the ultimate payback?





World Heavyweight Championship
Batista (c) vs Umaga vs Edge


The desire to be the World Heavyweight Champion runs deep in both Batista and Edge, but they both know that in Umaga, that desire will be tested to the absolute maximum when these three superstars meet for the gold this Sunday night. This all started over a month ago when Edge made his return to Smackdown following his long lay off due to a pectoral injury he suffered, which forced him to forfeit the World Heavyweight title. With obvious jealously directed towards The Animal, Edge set about making his life difficult the moment he returned. In fact, it was The Rated R Superstar who became the first Guest General Manager, and his impact was well and truly felt as he brought Umaga to Smackdown and forced Batista into a match at Cyber Sunday against the monster which would see Edge act as Special Guest Referee. Quickly seeing this as an abuse of power, the Board of Director’s quickly intervened and changed the match to a championship match and laid out three match options for the fans to vote on. And for the first time ever, there was an exact split as Batista was put into an almost impossible situation as Edge was voted in as referee for a Last Man Standing match.

With Edge seemingly torn about how to officiate, he eventually snapped and tried to spear The Animal, a move that backfired as he was on the wrong end of a spinebuster from the champ. Batista was then in the hot seat and somehow finished the match off as he was able to spinebuster The Samoan Bulldozer through a table to retain his title. Fuming that his plan backfired, Edge quickly went about his revenge mission, trying to get the World Championship stripped from Batista for laying his hands on a referee. Shane McMahon had no sympathy Edge, but did give Edge the opportunity to win his title back by making this match. However, Edge did not bank on Shane adding Umaga into the mix. With Armando Estrada unhappy that Edge did not follow through on his promise of helping Umaga win the match at Cyber Sunday, Estrada told Edge that any plans they had were off and that Umaga would become the World Champion on his own. With his back firmly against the wall later that night, Edge found himself in the way of both Batista and Umaga’s wrath as Batista helped Umaga to a victory over the former undefeated champion. But that night firmly belonged to The Samoan Bulldozer as he didn’t just pick up a win against his fellow challenger, he then laid out The Beast, looking absolutely unstoppable.

A week later however, he got a response from both champion and challenger as The Animal evened the score for the attack the week before. But with Batista standing tall, Edge then showed his deck. Following the rejection from Umaga and Estrada, Edge recruited two individuals to do his dirty work for him as The Miz and John Morrison, both debuting on Smackdown, attacked Batista from behind. However, Batista was able to fight both off before being on the receiving end of spear from the determined former champion. This past week, they exchanged strong words before William Regal stopped the war of words and followed up by making a handicap match, with Edge being joined by his two followers to face his two opponents for this weekend in Batista and Umaga. The question on everyone’s minds was if Batista and Umaga could co exist. Early on they did, but as Umaga looked in control, a blind tag from Batista set The Bulldozer off, and as The Animal tried to finish Edge off, Umaga reacted with a savote kick and then a samoan spike, leaving Edge to pick up an unlikely victory over the champion. Will Batista be able to fight off the challenge of two dangerous challengers? Is Umaga ready to bulldoze through both Batista and Edge yet again, or will The Rated R Superstar win back the prize he desires most?






Intercontinental Championship
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Last Fall Wins the Title

Jeff Hardy (c), CM Punk & Cody Rhodes
vs Elijah Burke, Carlito & Santino Marella


How could a small argument between two men escalate into such an important and incredible match like the one we are about to witness this Sunday night in New Jersey? After seeing Jeff Hardy retain his Intercontinental Championship in a Ladder Match against Mr. Kennedy at Cyber Sunday, Elijah Burke and Santino Marella exchanged views on why they think they should get a shot at Jeff’s title ahead of the other. Not going unnoticed by then Raw GM William Regal, he made a Battle Royal the following night with the winner getting a title match at the Survivor Series. However, it didn’t go to plan for Burke as he was eliminated by CM Punk, leaving The Straight Edge Superstar and Marella as the last two men. It didn’t set well with Burke as he then ended the match prematurely, taking a chair into the ring and taking out both Marella and Punk. Regal was quick to react as he made this blockbuster of a match, trying to please everyone and make the Survivor Series a night to remember.

This past week on Raw, all six men were action against each other as Burke picked up a very debatable victory over Cody Rhodes and CM Punk overcame Carlito in a close match up. With Jeff Hardy set to go up against Santino, Burke went to see the Italian before his match and offered him the chance to get an advantage going into this weekend. Santino accepted Burke’s offer, something they kept in the dark until it all became clear. Waiting in the ring for Jeff, Marella decided to walk up the ramp to meet him, and all of a sudden, Burke appeared, attacking Hardy from behind. Together, they put a beating on the defending champion this Sunday until they were met with some resistance in the shape of Cody Rhodes and CM Punk. Carlito then tried to get in on the action, but Punk and Rhodes were ready for it. With only one man being able to leave with the Intercontinental Championship this Sunday night and the last fall taking the match, will Jeff be able to overcome the odds and add to his growing reputation, or will we see a new Intercontinental Champion crowned?





Cruiserweight Championship
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Last Fall Wins the Title

Jimmy Wang Yang, Super Crazy, Johnny Jeter & Matt Sydal
vs Kenny Dykstra, Jamie Noble, Chavo Guerrero & Matt Striker


The Intercontinental Championship won’t be the only title decided in elimination rules as after months without a Cruiserweight Champion, we will finally crown a deserving one this Sunday night. The superstar who is able to survive seven other men and become the sole survivor will be truly deserving in this unpredictable match up. The only difference between this match and the Intercontinental Championship match is that in this case, a new champion MUST be crowned and if more than one team member survives the other team, then the remaining team members will go at it for the gold. Super Crazy has looked impressive since returning from Raw, picking up a big victory just over a week ago, defeating Jimmy Wang Yang, Chavo Guerrero and Matt Striker in a fatal fourway match. Johnny Jeter and Matt Sydal have picked up back to back victories in tag team action since debuting on Smackdown two weeks ago, defeating Kenny Dykstra and Jamie Noble this week, then Matt Striker and Chavo Guerrero this week. With Dykstra and Guerrero both extremely confident and determined, will they be able to stop the inform opposition that stands in their way? Only one of these superstars can leave with the title, just whose lucky night will it be?




WWE Womens Championship
Mickie James vs Beth Phoenix (c) vs Victoria


Beth Phoenix has been nothing short of impressive since becoming the WWE Womens Champion a couple of months ago, but she finds herself with her toughest challenge yet as she faces not one, but two divas in this title defence. Despite defeating Mickie James at Cyber Sunday, Mickie took her to the limit and is sure to again, but she won’t be the only one. Victoria and Beth teamed up the night after Cyber Sunday, and thanks to a mix up, they lost to Mickie and her partner that night, Candice Michelle. But then The Glamazon made possibly her first mistake since joining Raw as she was a little too aggressive as she blamed Victoria for losing the match. She didn’t count on being challenged, but Victoria stood up to the Womens Champion, something that Phoenix didn’t count on. The week after, Mickie and Victoria were put in a match to find out who would face The Glamazon at the Survivor Series, but Phoenix made another costly mistake as she got involved in the match, getting Mickie disqualified. William Regal was quick to act as ever, making this triple threat match straight away. Obviously feeling the strain this week, the under pressure champion attacked Mickie backstage as she was being interviewed by Todd Grisham, leaving Mickie in a bad way. However, she didn’t count on a visit from Victoria later on, who told Phoenix that she chose the right person to bully because The Glamazon knew that there was no bullying her. Is Beth in desperate trouble when she meets Victoria and Mickie? Only time will tell!




World Tag Team Championship
Elimination Match
Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs Stevie Richards & Tommy Dreamer
vs Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch (c) vs DeuceNDomino


Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch face arguably their toughest test to date when they defend their World Tag Team titles against these three teams at The Continental Arena. Having defeated Paul London and Brian Kendrick at Unforgiven and The ECW Originals last month at Cyber Sunday in an ECW Rules match, and also beat the same three teams they face this Sunday on Raw two weeks ago, it seems that they have the upper hand going into this one. However, something we are used to seeing from the champions in that match resulted in this match being made. Using one of their title belts to give them the win that night may come back to haunt The Redneck Wrecking Crew as The ECW Originals try and rewrite the result from Cyber Sunday, and the two former teams that held the WWE Tag Team Championship on Smackdown try and win the Raw titles from the aggressive defending champions. Is it time The Redneck’s luck ran out?




Six Man Tag Team Match
Paul Burchill, Drew McIntyre & Harry Smith
vs The World’s Greatest Tag Team & Chris Masters


In what was scheduled to be an elimination match, William Regal changed it into a normal six man tag team match Friday night on Smackdown. It appears that Regal feels it will be more of a test for the WWE Tag Team Champions in The World’s Greatest Tag Team. It’s strange to think little over a month ago, Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas were on Raw, and all of their opponents weren’t even under a Smackdown contract. It all came to life on a cold October night in Birmingham, England when Paul Burchill made his return to Smackdown, upsetting The Masterpiece Chris Masters with a shock victory. A victory he repeated a week later, even following that up with a pinfall victory in a tag team match the next week. But Burchill wasn’t the only British superstar making a Smackdown appearance that night as Drew McIntyre made his debut, teaming with Dave Taylor in the Open Invitational Gauntlet match for the WWE Tag Team Championship. And what an impact they made, seeing off Matt Striker and Big Daddy V to win the titles, or so they thought.

In a shock to everyone, The World’s Greatest Tag Team took advantage of the Open House rules set by Stephanie McMahon and entered the gauntlet, defeating McIntyre & Taylor to take the gold and leave Birmingham, England very upset at seeing their two natives lose out in this way. Then two weeks ago, Masters fell foul of another English superstar making his debut, as Harry Smith followed in his late father’s footsteps, winning a match with the running powerslam. Masters had about as much as he could take even before this match as he, Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas attacked Dave Taylor backstage, leaving him needing medical attention. With the six man match already made a week earlier, it appeared that Taylor would be unable to compete following the attack. Fellow Brit, William Regal stepped in and named Smith as Taylor’s replacement, and Friday night, Smith notched up his second consecutive win on Smackdown by defeating Haas. With a lot of bad blood between both sides, who will prevail in this personal battle?
