Re: EWR/TEW Discussion Thread
Just completed my Survivor Series card:
My main feuds going into the PPV were
CM Punk vs Lesnar for the WWE title - If Punk won it would mark a full year of his reign and this is his biggest challenge yet. Lesnar is in a stable with Heyman, Big Show and Big Johnny and Punk took Zack Ryder under his wing after Show kept attacking him. The two sides have had an all out war which will finalise at Survivor Series in a No DQ match.
Barrett vs Cena - Cena had been in an on-screen relationship with Beth Phoenix before she turned on him and cost him a title shot against Ziggler for the World Heavyweight Championship. The two began a feud which engulfed the roster, with Cena's friends disgusted with Barrett's behaviour and Barrett's allies hoping to strike Cena whilst he's down and knock him off top spot. This is going to conclude in a Survivor Series 4-4 match to end this great rivalry which has turned Barrett into my #1 heel, with A* momentum.
Cesaro vs Ryback - US Champion Cesaro was doing the usual Anti-American crap about being embarrassed to wear the US Title because he hated America. Ryback, who is continuing his slow push is fresh out of his rivalry with heel R-Truth which resulted in Truth leaving the company. I'm giving Ryback the full Goldberg push as he is still undefeated since I started in May.
Rhodes vs Christian vs Morrison - Smackdown GM Austin was getting sick of Rhodes' cheating tactics against Christian and Morrison in singles matches. At NoC he was booked to face them both in a Triple Threat but Rhodes attacked Morrison before the match and beat Christian. Stone Cold then set up a Triple Threat ladder match between the three for the IC title. Rhodes threatened to quit and take the title with him on The Highlight Reel but he got hit with a Stunner for his troubles the Friday before Survivor Series.
Ryder vs Big Show - This is the secondary rivalry from the Punk vs Lesnar feud. After the two tore through the roster, Ryder stood up to Lesnar and Big Show and got beat down for his troubles. After Lesnar went too far and powerbombed Ryder onto the concrete Big Show had doubts but accepted Ryder's challenge to a match at Survivor Series.
AJ vs Trish - AJ fresh out of her feud with Lita for the Divas Title faces her biggest challenge so far in Trish Stratus. AJ is the face of the women's division and a win over Trish would put her down as one of the greatest ever Divas.
Ziggler vs Sheamus vs Del Rio vs Orton - At NoC Ziggler cashed in his briefcase on Sheamus to become the new Champ. As Del Rio, Orton and Sheamus swapped victories, Austin declared a fatal four way as long as they all defeated their opponents. After squashing the jobbers, Ziggler tried taking them out, including crashing into Del Rio's car. However he Austin banned him from the arena until the PPV so he could not harm anyone.
Rock vs Bryan - A fantastic feud between these two, especially the promos which got me my highest ratings resulted in a clash between these two. Bryan is my current top heel but since SummerSlam he has been acting as a face. These two have been trying to get the upper hand on each other unsuccessfully and they will meet in a steel cage match.
