WWE Survivor Series review
Starting the show with the RVD/Anderson-SCUM match was good, but I felt Mr. Money in the Bank should have picked up the pinfall. Nothing against Vand, I just felt that Anderson needed it more as he's become lost a little in the mix of Nitro.
Chyna's promo was decent.
Kurt Angle picks up a big win, and I like that. Where he goes next will be very interesting to see.
Jeff's promo was really good.
I felt with Des' promos, he deserved the win with Beth Phoenix- but I can understand with his disappearance, he wouldn't be picked as the winner. With the way Chyna won, it continues the storyline. Looking forward to it.
Ric Flair?! And AJ Styles?! Shiiiiit.
Ryback-Sting next! I've been looking forward to this and with the finish, I'm looking forward to the future too! What looks like a heel Ryback in the hunt for the WWE Championship? That'll turn heads.
Leads right into the Daniels-Styles' match and while I felt TTC has done great with him, the decision to keep the title on Daniels was the right one in my book. WF has been fantastic from start to finish with him- ever since the vignettes with the wine all the way to his alignment with Reigns- and he deserves to be where he is right now.
Short and sweet promo from Miz.
Henry costs Hurricane the title and it leads to Dolph Ziggler becoming the ICT Champ. For definite, the right choice as THBK deserves it for the hard work he has put in with Ziggler. I'm looking forward to seeing the fallout to this.
IT WAS ME! I've had so much fun with those vignettes and I'm so glad Edge is back. He had a hell of a show in this match- a lot better than I was expecting- and being the sole survivor made me extremely happy. Seeing Reigns as his final opponent and the way they were throughout the match looks set for a 'Spear vs. Spear' feud- which if so, I'm extremely excited for.
What a match. Hell of a contest from these eight men, with EoH getting the win on their debut. This makes me wonder where both factions go next, and what individual feuds may stem from this, or if they will continue as factions. Also, the booking of Tyler Black winning was the perfect booking for the match.
Tyson Kidd, Shaz, you've been a hell of a champion but I am so pumped for Torphs right now. Dean Ambrose as World Heavyweight Champion and top of Nitro is brilliant and it couldn't come to a more deserving fedder. Torphy has plugged away for roughly 2 years (I believe) and over the past few months, has been top of the card everywhere. To see Adonis & Ambrose as champs is definitely the right choice.
And finally the main event. I'm honoured to win the match and the title. The celebration afterwards was a fantastic touch. With Jericho as Mr. MITB, he's sure to be in the main event for a while to come yet- as with Ryback as the number one contender right now. Whether this means Jericho cashes in soon or in a while, it's going to be exciting to see.
Every match- with the obvious exception of the Nitro SS match which was recapped- was very well written, with the EoH-UK match a MOTY competitor for sure. Obviously, it was very disappointing not to see the Divas SS match. I was really looking forward to that. But I understand with the situation. I'll say with the missing matches and the delay, I can't consciously give this show anything higher than a B+.
