Yesterday the landscape of the WWE changed forever with Survivor Series it was a night that will always be remembered for years to come by all wrestling fans. In the preshow there were two quick matches that took place, Fandango debuted his new gimmick as a salsa dancer with his manager Rosa Mendes. He took on Justin Gabriel Fandango was victorious over Gabriel in a decent match via a top rope leg drop for the three count. Then there was a random confrontation with Cesaro and Jack Swagger which led to match. Once again Jack Swagger made quick work out of Cesaro and made him tap out via the Patriot Lock.
The show started with the boss himself Vince McMahon came out and had a segment with the Authority. Vince stated if they were to lose they would lose their entire control over any decisions or have any influence over any wrestler’s career. The only person with any power to bring back the Authority is John Cena which made things very intriguing.
The first match of the night was the fatal four-way tag team match for the Tag team titles I thought this was a brilliant idea on behalf of the WWE in order to grab attention of the three subscribers for the month of November on the WWE Network. I thought that this match delivered on all levels I was entertained throughout the whole match. Goldust and Stardust controlled the majority of the match. I got to give props to Stardust for his new makeup which I thought it looked incredible.
I was very surprised with the Los Matadors and their abilities in this match, The Miz and Mizdow were very entertaining as always. It was hilarious every time the Miz was it the ring he was getting booed at the St. Louis fans were chanting we want Mizdow and every time he came in the ring crowd popped like crazy.
Towards the end of the match there was a crazy sequence of unbelievable spots from every team and their members they performed suicide dives and Moonsault flips on all the members on the outside of the ring. The finish had Jimmy hit a Samoan drop before Torito dived on everyone on the floor, then Fernando went up to the top rope but Goldust stopped him on the ropes and started to climb up. Stardust goes to throw Diego, but he springboards up and they hit a Suplex/Powerbomb spot before Mizdow tagged in and got the pinfall and him along with the Miz became the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
After the match the whole crowd erupted and it just goes to show you how over Damien Mizdow is every time he raised his hands he would get cheered. On the other hand every time The Miz did that with a title belts he got booed.
Now backstage there was a segment which involved the Bunny and Adam Rose and Slater Gator then Rose challenged them to a tag team match.
The next contest was the Divas elimination tag team match to crown the new number one contender for the Divas title and to my surprise this felt extremely longer than expected for this type of match. It surprisingly took a long time for the first elimination of the match Naomi scored, the first elimination on Cameron with a bridging pin. Then Layla got back into the ring then Alicia hit a back breaker for the next elimination. Emma made Summer Rae tap out via the Emma Lock and then it became a four on one match against Paige was getting beat up by every member of team Natalya. Then Naomi hit a head scissors move on Paige for the three count and team Natalya picked up the win.
One of the most anticipated and intriguing matches that I was looking forward Dean Ambrose took on Bray Wyatt and it was exactly what I expected. It was an all-out brawl and Ambrose snapped and hit Bray Wyatt with a steel chair followed by the dirty deeds onto the steel chair. Therefore Wyatt picked up the victory via DQ.
However Dean Ambrose was not finished he put Bray Wyatt onto a table and climbed up to the top rope and hit body splash to break the table. All of a sudden he went to the outside he got additional tables and chairs to hit Bray Wyatt with. Then Ambrose climbed up on a ladder and he was laughing at the carnage he left Bray Wyatt in.
Then we have a random and pointless match that should have never taken place on this PPV could have been on RAW or SmackDown instead. The Bunny and Adam Rose defeated Slater Gator via a roll up pin on Slater.
Then to everybody surprise there was an exclusive interview with Roman Reigns on the Titan Tron via a satellite. He stated that he will be back next month but this was the worst promo or segment of his career so far in my opinion.
The divas match was next for the Divas title Nikki Bella took on AJ but Nikki had a plan up her sleeve. The bell rang but Brie stayed on the apron with the Divas Championship, AJ tried to pull the title away from her. Brie instead pulls her in and kissed her, that was a set up then Nikki hit a clothesline and the Rack Attack for the victory. All of a sudden Brie ends up smiling and raised Nikki’s arm, and then Nikki celebrates with the title. It got me thinking could this be a heel turn in the future for Brie Bella.
Then it was the main event this result of this match would change the WWE forever. The match started with HHH motivating Mark Henry but all of sudden Big Show hit Henry with the KO punch and Henry was officially eliminated. I have to give credit to the WWE they came up with a creative way to eliminate Rusev without being pinned or submitted.
Rusev went outside and took apart the commentary table, and then he dragged Dolph onto one and he climbed onto the other commentary table. Rusev ran and tried to hit a body splash but Dolph rolled out of the way, and Rusev crashed through the commentary table and the referee counted him out. Then Ziggler fought off Kane and connect with a super kick followed by Zig Zag for the next elimination. Harper was beating up Ziggler but Ziggler surprised him with school boy roll up pin. All of sudden it was one on one contest with Ziggler against Rollins which was incredible.
Multiple times during the match Ziggler got near falls on Rollins but HHH made sure to interrupt the pin counts. However HHH hit the Pedigree and called out for a referee and all you hear is a crow and the lights go off and then its Sting made his WWE debut. Sting made his way to the ring and I was marking out so hard and then Sting had a stare down with HHH and then gave him a Scorpion Death Drop.
Then he put Ziggler arm over Rollins and the referee made the three count and team Cena won and Dolph Ziggler was the sole survivor. I have to say this was one of the best Survivor Series matches I have seen in my life. It was very compelling for forty plus minutes which is extremely difficult to do in the society we live in. This match and Sting saved this PPV in my opinion because it was very lackluster overall I would give it a 7/10.
