Re: Rate Survivor Series from 1-10
9/10. Awesome show.
I was entertained throughout nearly all of the show and despite the poor crowd I enjoyed nearly every match. The victories of Ziggler (particularly how much of a clean victory it was over Orton, I was honestly a little shocked) and Punk (great surprise ending) made the night almost perfect for me. Sheamus/Show match was surprisingly good, much like their last one, they've got a lot of chemistry together, when Sheamus was destroying Big Show post-match I was hoping they would take it to the ring so they could tease a Ziggler cash-in, but it didn't happen. Regardless that was a good match and I'm thinking Ziggler will cash-in his MITB at the TLC PPV. Both Traditional Surivor Series matches were good, with Team Ziggler vs Team Foley being the better one, it was great to see WWE do something right with Ziggler for once by making him the sole survivor of his team and getting a CLEAN victory over Orton with a super kick, I'm hoping he makes that his finisher now, it automatically has good credibility by putting away Orton with it. The triple threat WWE Title main-event was decent, really enjoyed all believable nearfalls and the first time interaction between Cena and Ryback. I loved when Cena and Punk, despite all their differences, teamed up against Ryback and suplexed him threw the table, it reminded me of WrestleMania 20 when Triple H and HBK were rivals but for a second they put their differences aside to team up on Benoit and suplex him through the table. The ending to the match with the surprise attack from the NXT guys, Rollins, Ambrose and Reigns, was a great ending that kept Ryback credible and I'm really intrigued to what will happen now. Maybe a stable featuring those guys with maybe Brad Maddox under the control by Heyman? Punk's Henchman maybe? Who knows.
