Survivor Series Feedback
Just wanna say again that it is great to have you back. Please don’t disappear again, at least not until you post WM23. You are still the top guy, and I hope that this PPV proves it.
Wow, this is truly the way to kick off S’Series in style. Last year it was DX vs. Team Cena, this year it’s Team BOD vs. Team Cabinet. Damn, JBL has a back injury? Hope to see him back soon, as SD! will miss the Wrestling God for the next 4-6 months. Rocky is the next one gone, as I know that this is his last match, but I would have liked to see it end a little better. Some of the smaller guys are gone, as we are left with Angle and Noble taking on the BOD, which Jamie quickly gets eliminated from, leaving Kurt to battle the monsters. Didn’t think Angle would lose to Kane, as he rolls him up and now it is down to Angle and ‘Taker. A tremendous exchange between these two megastars, as Angle is really giving it his all, but ‘Taker looks to be too much … but Angle locks in the Ankle Lock! ‘TAKER TAPS OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER~!! That was truly shocking and one of the boldest moves in BTB history, imo … right there with ‘Taker’s streak being ended in a few threads. I see Angle as now being back to a top player on SD!, as maybe this was a lil’ preview of a WM23 match? Great way to kick off the night in style.
Angle is really going to ride this victory for a while. Good to see The Wrestling Machine out of his funk.
New Wave is a pretty decent name for a faction, but as long as Orton is the leader, it OWNS, imo. Love the brash way that the New Wave just go right after Flair and Co. on the ramp, getting rid of Punk and Helms very early. I figured that we wouldn’t see Flair vs. all four of the New Wave, so it was good to see ‘Lito get an elimination, before he is dropped by the RKO. Flair is able to get Dinsmore to tap out, leaving Naitch to go against Cade and Orton. I know I thought this would end up coming down to Flair and Orton, but Cade never gets eliminated and Orton hits the RKO, winning the match for the New Wave. End of this feud, imo … the New Wave have bigger things to do, while Flair settles down for a little while.
Mick has been in a weird state of mind. Wouldn’t be shocked if he didn’t even show up tonight, tbh.
Shelton and Henry are both pretty good wrestlers, but I don’t see either getting a shot against Hunter, seeing as they are both heels. T-Lo and The Brotherhood are awesome.
I like how you are able to slip the CW Title match on this PPV, as the Mexicools have been at each other’s throat over this belt as of late. All three men looked to have a chance to win, and I thought that Psi would get the duke, but I am not very upset that Crazy kept his belt. The aftermath certainly means that this feud is far from over, as I think we will see it end at Armageddon.
Mick Foley … will he show … or won’t he show?
I guess that Triple H is starting to get concerned, as I think both he and HBK won’t know what to expect from Foley in the referee role.
Heyman’s final day as the SD! GM … plz.
Danny Doring and Roadkill are the worst team in this match, glad to see them gone first. Festus is just running through people, and again you make me happy, making Holly get eliminated instead of “King” Regal. Elijah and Booker are one of my favorite teams in this contest, and I think that they may even win, and getting rid of the Murdochs is a good way to start. Booker T gets in on the fun, as D N’ D are now done. Thank you. MNM are finally showing why they are the tag champs, getting rid of the Highlanders, who should have probably been gone minutes ago. The Cult Society is gone … and we are down to Booker/Elijah and MNM~! Alexis saves Booker and Elijah … taking down Melina. The ending sounded sick, with the Super Elijah Express putting down Mercury. Great way to end the match and I see a possible six-person Women’s and World Tag Titles match in the future. Alexis, Booker, and Elijah are awesome … just not as good as MNM.
Again, please make it to WM23.
Van Dam as the leader is pretty original, as he usually wouldn’t be seen in that role, but he knows what’s on the line tonight.
Umaga going nuts to start the match doesn’t come as much of a shock, as I didn’t see the streak ending tonight, and he won’t be getting a title shot soon. Better to get rid of him early. Rhyno is the least likely to get a title shot, and I keep forgetting that Lesnar is still in this thread. Awesome to see the Vanilla Gorilla get the F-5 for the elimination. Rey is the next to go, as I love that the Little Bastard made an appearance. Finlay to last a long time plz. Gotta make Cena look like Superman, right? Henry is out of the match, as he should be. Damn, Kennedy gets eliminated by Brock, and I thought maybe he’d get rid of Shelton before he left the match. Finlay is the next to go, as I don’t mind Christian getting rid of him, as we’re now down to Brock & Shelton against Cena & Christian. Double team is the only way we can get rid of Brock, and Shelton is quick to go after that, seeing as he is not yet World Title material. Cena and Christian both get a shot and I don’t see either getting another rematch one-on-one. Triple Threat on Raw, imo. Very entertaining contest.
‘VP is a stud. Bring him to SD!, they need him more, imo.
So I guess that Foley isn’t showing up … at least not yet. This match gets underway with a regular old referee, as HBK and Hunter look ready to go at it. HBK is able to withstand the McMahons, even after the predictable referee bump, as Michaels takes the sledgehammer from H, using it against his former best friend!! Michaels takes out the entire McMahon family … and then the referee!! Sweet Chin Music!! But there is no one out here!! FOLEY~! He calls for the bell … and declares Triple H the winner by DQ?! Loved the commentary from Coach and J.R, but HBK needs some answers. Triple H and HBK are done with this feud, as I hope that Triple H moves into a real title feud, probably against Cena and Christian. Meanwhile, HBK almost gets run over and I have no idea what is wrong with Foley. I see this as one of your classic, drawn out, carefully planned WM matches. Very innovative and I can’t wait to see where the feud goes. Mick Foley may be out of his damn mind.
Glad to see this main event go so long before the first elimination, as I think that is the quickest way to ruin a S’Series match, with a quick elimination, unless there is good reason. Lashley gets handed his first loss, as I don’t think this is the last time we will be seeing Edge use MITB tonight. (
) Dreamer was just used for storyline purposes, as AMW are awesome and they get rid of the man former known as “Extreme”. Van Dam ain’t looking too good right now, tbh. Storm is the next to go, via the Batista Bomb, as the sides are looking to be evened up, as Matt eliminates the U.S. Champion Brent Albright, and now we are all square. Matt is gone … just like that~! RVD is down on the outside and now Batista is the next to go, being forced to take all of the shots from Team Heyman, as Van Dam is now in a 3-on-1 situation. Van Dam catches Harris with a cradle … and eliminates the second half of AMW!! Heyman tries to get involved and through all the chaos he almost takes a Spear, distracting Edge and allowing RVD to hit the Five-Star!! We are down to just Y2J and RVD, and it is going to be very interesting. Jericho has the advantage, but Van Dam makes another comeback, before Heyman takes out the referee … and takes a Van Daminator for his trouble!! Jericho gets taken down in the corner … VAN TERMINATOR!! RVD WINS!! Heyman’s reign of SD! is over and I think that Van Dam may just be the hottest wrestler in the company, somehow overcoming these odds. Tremendous way to end the show, with Van Dam keeping the title and ending the reign of Heyman.
You haven’t lost a damn step. Tremendous show that just kept me waiting to see what happens next. Every match served its purpose and I know think that we have seen the seeds planted for Angle/’Taker and HBK/Foley at WM23. You only lose points for not having Edge cash in MITB, but that will be special when it finally happens, 9.5/10.
