What should have been: Survivor Series 2011 main event

I decided to start a series of blogs called "What should have been" because some main events could have been better at the ppv events. Some times they book main events that people don't want to see or that would have been the bigger pay off. That is why I started this....give my opinion on what the main event should have been at the ppv. Survivor Series 2011 is a perfect example of something fans didn't want to see. They wanted to see Rock/Cena face not for them to team up.
They can't hookup til Wrestlemania, I agree, but the main event would have been better and ended up with better buys with something different than a tag match. I was thinking more of a classic Survivor Series match. 5-on-5 Survivor Series match everyone would anticipate.....Cenation vs Team Bring It. The Rock gave Cena a Rock bottom in the end, so if his team would win because of it....who cares?
Who would have been on each of their teams? I was thinking about the Nation of Domination teaming with the Rock. Guys like Mark Henry, D-Lo, Kama aka Godfather, and Ron Simmons. If one couldn't compete, use a guy like Foley as a replacement. You could possibly bring Rock's father back if you must to add a member. Get Cena's dad in the match as well. Not saying they would take bumps or anything. They could get eliminated by double countout or something like that. D-Lo and others would be crazy to turn down an oppurtunity to main event a ppv with superstars like Cena/Rock in the same match with them..
Who could be on Cena's team? Big Show for the reason Henry is in the match. Their match at Survivor Series was like 10 minutes. Elimination match like the 5 on 5 would probably take 30 minutes or just give some extra time for the young guys. Zack Ryder didn't have a match at the ppv. Be big for his career at that point. Cena/Ryder were broskis at that time. Made a bit of sense. B-squared could return for old times sakes as well for the match. Cena, Show, Ryder, B-squared, and possibly Cena's dad. Big O could be a possibility or some guy like HHH who had a long history with the Rock. Jericho could be a possibility as well.
How the match could have went down: Rock/Cena did their moves on the other performers in the match. Come down to them 2 of course to have the face-off than a guy like Mark Henry attacks Cena from behind. Rock watches it as it occurs. Picks Cena up after Henry leaves the ring and delivers a Rock bottom. 1, 2, 3 and Team Bring it wins. I think that kind of main event would have sold. Not teaming Rock/Cena together that no one wanted to see. Would have led to more anticipation for the match at Mania. Miz/R-Truth could have been in the WWE championship match w/Punk and Del Rio. Pin R-Truth and led to a triple threat like TLC match they had. Hell, Jericho could have cost Cena the match like he did a decade ago in the classic Survivor Series match with the Rock. A lot of good possibilities you could have ended the match with would have been better than the tag match for the past Survivor Series. That would have gotten some buys if you ask me.
