Re: Report On Why WWE Overhauled Survivor Series Main Event
WWE keeps booking Punk as if he was the face that's supposed to overcome the odds.
Personally I think I'd prefer the SS elimination match. Both because I think SS should be about those as it originally was, plus that the triple threat can't hide Ryback's shortcomings as much. In a triple threat you get resting time by being hurt for a while but Ryback is booked so he has to be like Big Show was when he had his triple threat with Punk and Cena. The HIAC match only going 12 minutes and Ryback looking pretty bad leaves me no hope that Ryback will produce good matches in the foreseeable future. With the elimination match they could have let the others do all the work, just like they did in the last Raw main event. Then again, it's not really the matches that are at fault, it's pushing someone that's not a good wrestler.
The problem with the elimination chamber was that they didn't plan for it properly. They should have had the members of the teams interacting with each other well before the match was announced, plus there should have been something really important at stake for the winning team (not titles during the match though, that makes no sense).
