Re: Report On Why WWE Overhauled Survivor Series Main Event
If the people they're naming the teams after don't have to actually be competing in them, I say name the heel team 'Team Vicky' (since her showstealer is now essentially leading it, plus she had some earlier almost-chemistry with Del Rio) and have Edge return to manage the face team ('Team Edge') since he could help point out her hypocrisy about criticizing people for fraternizing, himself and Ziggler being examples of her own toe-dipping.
Not to push out Foley or anything but having him there doesn't make sense anymore. Instead, perhaps in the future, Team Hell No could have a title defense in a hell in the cell match (like maybe if they hold onto it until mania?) and get Foley involved somehow due to his history with both the cell and Kane's bro.
Heck, what if Taker chooses to 'unretire' Michaels (he'd be the only one with the power to do that, presumably, since it was a promise made to him, the Undertaker owns his career and can choose to end or start it) and they make some kinda 'cowboys' team.
Considering that Daniel Bryan was Michaels' pupil (not forgetting Regal of course, but he's a Sheamus guy, and I don't like that) and the 'brothers of destruction' history, this match would have some interesting plot to it, I think. A real torch-passing sorta thing which could help solidify D-bri as an even more serious contender. The whole goatface/vegan thing will eventually get old, and much like Punk he'll need reboots. Mania would be a good time for it, and a mixup to Taker's streak of singles victories.
This begs the question though: if Taker's team loses by Bryan pinning Michaels or something like that, does that count as ending the streak?
Think of how much heat Bryan would get for 'ending the streak' without actually pinning the Undertaker at all, too.
