Default Would the Survivor Series card have been better this way ???

Personally nothing about Team Foley/Team Punk excited me when that seemed to be the way WWE were going to go for Survivor Series outside of the possibility of Mick Foley and CM Punk maybe having a couple of promo battles along the way. I was more excited about the possibility of Cena/Ziggler as they have always had good matches with each other and it was reported the two of them were tearing up the house show scene but alas neither match is now happening.

Because of a clear fear of a poor buyrate Vince McMahon has thrown John Cena into a Triple Threat match for the WWE title against CM Punk and Ryback whilst for no apparent reason we now have Team Foley/Team Ziggler with John Cena involved every week on Raw with Dolph Ziggler and Mick Foley still involved with CM Punk. Now i'm all for old school five on five elimination matches being a major part of Survivor Series as it's traditional for that PPV but surely going with Foley/Punk/Ryback for the WWE title and Cena/Ziggler as the two main matches for Raw and Sheamus/Show for the World title for SmackDown made better sense, i would have love the card to look like this.

Foley/Punk/Ryback for the WWE title and a Foley/Punk match for TLC set up

Cena/Ziggler

Sheamus/Show for the World title

R-Truth/Antonio Cesaro for the US title

Kaitlyn/Eve for the Diva's title

Team Orton with Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara, Kofi Kingston and Christian/Team Del Rio with Alberto Del Rio, The Prime Time Players, The Miz and Wade Barrett

Team Hell No with Bryan Danielson, Kane, Zack Ryder, Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd/Team Rhodes Scholars with Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Tensai, Epico and Primo

Foley can't take big bumps anymore. He MAY have one more good bump in him but that's pushing it. And it wouldn't be believable anymore to have Punk take the bumps vs an out of shape, much older Mick Foley.

I think the Survivor Series card was going to be weak no matter what.

I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a 47 year old Mick Foley in a wrestling match ever again.

They needed 1 of their 'Special Roster' on this card IMO, Undertaker, Rock, Triple H, Brock etc, just one would have added a lot to the card with it making matches more meaningful throughout the card.

The way the story is going for Foley vs. Punk isn't really meant to be a wrestling fued. A comparison to their story is like Ra's Al Ghul vs. Batman (in the comics). Foley is meant to be an opponent for Punk, but through other ways besides physically, that way Punk has opponents in multiple ways.

Yes apart from the main event as there would be no need for Foley to be in the match. Cena/Ziggler should of happened.

That seems like a pretty average/mediocre card at best. Ryback vs Cena vs Punk seems big and will draw lots of viewers, because no one in the match seems like 'someone to get the pin on' Cena is the face of the company, Ryback is an indestructible force who is destroying everyone, Punk is the year-long champ who needs to go on to face Rock. If it was Foley in there instead of Cena, it would be predictable as hell that Punk would just get the pin on Foley, and they really don't want to do that because the fans would get sick and tired of Punk sneaking out victories like that yet again.

Also Team Ziggler vs Team Foley seems interesting because of Miz's face turn and Orton's possible heel turn. Orton vs Del Rio is just meb, Orton as face is stale as hell, Del Rio in general is stale as hell.
