The 2015 WWE Survivor Series is over and for the most part I was right about the survivor matches being put on the back burner. There were two traditional survivor series matches and both seemed to be thrown together from names in two fish bowls labeled face and heel. The rest of the matches seemed to be not that into it until the very end when everyone became upset all at once. Let’s look at the matches and see how I did on the predictions.
Goldust, Bubba Ray Dudley, D-Von Dudley, Neville and Titus O’Neil vs. Stardust, Konnor, Viktor, The Miz and Bo Dallas: This was the kick off show and I missed it because I was coming home from a trip. It wasn’t on the card and honestly if it was I wouldn’t have rushed home any faster. Yes, Goldust is back and that will cause and issue with Stardust and the eventual return of Cody Rhodes, but there was nothing really here to make me care. Goldust’s team ended up winning and since I didn’t know about it, I was neither right nor wrong.
Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio: I was right. The crowd seemed to hate both Reigns and Del Rio so it didn’t really matter what happened, because everyone knew the outcome which was Reigns winning.
Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose: I was right. Same reason as above, except with Ambrose winning.
Ryback, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Kalisto and Sin Cara vs. Big E., Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Sheamus and King Barrett: This match would have been great, but it wasn’t. I guess people like the big moves and the high flying, but I didn’t see enough in this match to make me care. I watched it because it was on, but wasn’t sad when it was over. Ryback’s team won and since I didn’t know who was on the teams, I was neither right nor wrong.
Charlotte vs. Paige: I was right. Sadly this match ended pretty weak and with nothing special. Paige and Charlotte seemed like they would be trading blows and slamming each other down, but it was just a lot of holds. You can scream all you want to embellish the pain for the crowd, but the crowd was also screaming to make it more fun for them to watch. Charlotte won but submission and no someone else will challenge her.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyler Breeze: I was wrong. I may have been wrong about the winner, but when it comes to the match I was right. There was no story here and they fought just because Ziggler hates millennials. We now have to see Tyler Breeze gloat about his win over Ziggler for a few more shows.
Kane and Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman: I was right. If you’re a wrestling fan then you have had to know that Kane and Undertaker were going to win, it was just a matter of knowing who they were going to wrestle. Erick Rowan got in there and then left the ring after being choke slammed, Braun got choke slammed through the Spanish announce table and the team of Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt was a joke. Kane and Undertaker won and who knows if either will return for more matches.
Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns: I was wrong. This match seemed to mimic the Divas Championship match, because nothing really happened. It was done fairly quickly and all punches seemed to be pulled. For some reason a spear with nothing leading up to it, like a superman punch, happened and was enough to have Dean pinned. Shortly after Triple H came out and was speared by Roman Reigns, but then Sheamus came out and cashed in won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. I wasn’t happy about the result and I know the crowd sure as hell wasn’t happy, because a heel turn would have been better television. All this does is keep Roman and Dean as friends and the inevitable return of Seth Rollins means The Shield is coming back together. No one returns from injury a heel and Seth will be jealous of Sheamus.
