Survivor Series COULD have been a good PPV
... They totally botched it, though. (And to the MODs, I didn't know where to put this, so feel free to move it wherever, if it needs to be.)
Upon AJ's resignation, I would have had Heyman/Punk come out, and have Heyman just simply declare himself the new GM of RAW, propelling Vince to take exception. Vince originally says no, but Paul keeps pushing it, leading to a Team Heyman vs Team Vince or Team Foley. (Probably Team Foley, because Vince would never allow "Team Vince" to lose to Team Heyman.) The stipulations being that if Team Heyman won, he would be the GM of RAW, if he lost, he would be fired and Foley would get to be the guest referee in the Punk/Ryback/Cena match.
During this time, I would have Ziggler keep jobbing, to the point where he has a breakdown and unloads on Vickie, telling her that she never got him anywhere, and is holding him back. This hints at a potential face turn. You could even have Dolph cost CM Punk a match on RAW, and threaten him that Ryback/Cena might not be his only problem at Survivor Series. Ziggler eventually gets selected to be a part of Team Foley.
In the Team Heyman vs Team Vince/Foley match, Heymans team gets down to their last guy, while Ziggler and one other guy are still in the match for Team Vince/Foley. Obviously, Ziggler swerves, and hits the Zig Zag on his own partner, aligning himself with Heyman/Punk. Heyman becomes GM.
Lesnar interferes in the main event, and the night belongs to Heyman/Punk/Lesnar/Ziggler. I could keep going, but eventually I would have Ziggler cash in at WrestleMania, either on Punk or Lesnar. (Lesnar would beat Sheamus to win the Title because of Ziggler interfering, only to cash in on Lesnar and turn face.)
