    I enjoyed Survivor Series 2010. Some things didn’t go the way I would have liked, but I still found it to be an enjoyable show.

    Daniel Bryan vs. Ted Dibiase was a solid opener. Bryan is typically going to give you a good match when he’s out there and it was nice to see Dibiase in the US title picture. The problem I have here was a lack of build. Dibiase attacked Bryan six days prior to the ppv and here he was getting the title shot. Even if there wasn’t going to be a more creative way to build the match it should have at least been done sooner. Make me look forward to seeing the match instead of just throwing it at me a week before the ppv. Good match despite the poor build.

    I really liked the Morrison vs. Sheamus match. I thought it was very solid. Even though I liked the match I would have preferred a traditional elimination match. These two could have captained a team against each other. There were plenty of choices for each team that would have made sense. Then they could have had their singles match at the next ppv. So while the booking didn’t go the way I wanted I did enjoy the match.

    Kaval vs. Ziggler: see Bryan vs. Dibiase.

    Only one traditional match was disappointing but at least it was a good one. I would have bet money that Masters and Reks would have been eliminated within the first three minutes. Sometimes guys look bad getting eliminated so quickly and it hurts the match. I’m glad they didn’t go that route. Everyone got a respectable amount of time and I think everyone looked good. I was disappointed to see Del Rio go out so quickly. I would have liked to either see him survive or pull a Honky Tonk Man and run out when he was outnumbered. That’s nitpicking though. Good match.

    I really should go into a divas match with an open mind but typically I don’t care too much. Nothing really stood out here except the surprise return of Beth Phoenix.

    I have to admit I wasn’t paying close attention to Kane vs. Edge. I wanted to check how my fantasy football team was doing. I guess that tells me these guys failed to draw me in. I just couldn’t get into this feud. I don’t mind the finish too much. It just sets up the next ppv for a stipulation. I just find it funny when a ref counts a double pin. I would just assume not count in a situation like that.

    The tag titles served its purpose. It was filler before the main event and got the other members of Nexus a chance to shine. I’m sure wrestling Triple H for the title two years ago at Survivor Series to teaming with Santino is not exactly the direction Kozlov wanted to go, but it beats being wished well in future endeavors.

    I wasn’t really into the main event. I have no complaints about the build or the stipulation. The match itself seemed lackluster. I know this whole thing was about Cena, but it would have been nice if he wasn’t the main focus for the entire match. Barrett and Orton were just going for lame covers to see what Cena would do. Because of that it didn’t have the flow of a normal match. Cena’s counts should have been focused on early and late. The middle should have been more of a normal match.

    Overall it was an enjoyable show. I’m glad they decided to keep Survivor Series. It’s too bad Taker wasn’t able to appear at his 20th anniversary show but what can you do?

    I liked this year's Survivor Series and it felt important plus im glad they are keeping it. Too bad Undertaker missed his 20th anniversary but that didn't hurt the Show at all to me.

    Daniel Bryan/Ted Dibiase-Good Opener with Bryan taking a nasty bump on the outside. Maryse looked Hot as usual and glad Daniel Retained the US Title.

    John Morrison/Sheamus-I really liked this Match as well with both guys getting in some great offense. I liked Morrison winning w/o the Starship Pain this time.

    Dolph Ziggler/Kaval-Loved this Match and it really showed the importance of the IC Title. Dolph barely Retains but Kaval should get another shot at it.

    SS Eliminaton Match-Fun Match here,loved the stuff with Cody Rhodes going bezerk after Kofi slapped him twice in the face. Del Rio getting knocked out was interesting,I thought he was going to sneak back in and win but had no problem with Rey & Big Show being the Survivors.

    Laycool/Natalya-All I can say is Congrats to Natalya on winning the Divas Title and welcome back Beth Phoenix.

    Kane/Edge-An alright World Title Match with a slow and methodical pace but that didn't bother me too much. Wasn't big on the double pin but that sets up a Rematch maybe at TLC in December.

    Nexus/Santino & Kozlov-Nexus Retains the Tag Titles but a good bridge in between the 2 Main Events and it got Gabriel & Slater a chance on a Big PPV to shine.

    Orton/Barrett-I liked this Match overall for the most part and liked the curveball of Cena counting down Barrett for the 3 to let Orton Retain the WWE Title. So now lets see what comes of this.

    Overall an enjoyable Survivor Series and a 8/10.

    I know this is an old thread, but it was on WWE On Demand this week and I figured I'd share something I found hilarious. This past week on Raw, R-Truth caught some flack for being out of shape because he took a drink of water. King said that he had never seen anything like that before. But while watching this yesterday, Shawn Michaels took a swig of water during his match I think right after Owen was eliminated. I have never heard anyone accuse Shawn of being out of shape.

    But yeah, this show had some fun stuff but for the most part it was pretty weak. That horseshit with the Doinks was probably the single stupidest thing I've ever seen in the 90's, and that's saying a lot. The opening bout was good as was the RNR Express/Bodies match, but overall it was a very lackluster card.

    I will say this much about Survivor Series 91, it might not be the best wrestling ever after the first match, but I'll always watch that show just because Hennan and Monsoon that night had one of the best nights ever on commentary. Might not be the most watchable wrestling-wise but very easy on the ears from the commentary standpoint from start to finish.

    I don't know why HBK's offense seemed to lag behind in this match, and that he didn't have much variety as a heel. I know he was just getting into his singles career but when he was in the Rockers he had plenty of good and versatile offense. Maybe its cus he wanted to slow his work rate down while being a heel, cus a lot of the fast, high flying stuff would have gotten him over with the fans in a good way, not in a heel way.

    If I can I would like to rebook the 2007 Survivor Series Ppv because I feel that it could of been done so much better in my opinion such as:

    1) Cm Punk (C) Vs John Morrison Vs RVD Vs The Miz Vs Bobby Lashley Vs Elijah Burke
    Six Pack Challange Elimination Ecw Title Match. Have this match take place as te opener with elimination style rules and have Punk retain the title to give the ecw roster a good showing.

    2) Team Mickie James Vs Team Beth Pheonix
    10 Diva Elimination Match. Stays the same.

    3) Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch (C) Vs Holly & Rhodes Vs WGTT Vs London & Kendrick
    World Tag Team Title Four Corner Elimination Match. Add two more tag teams to the match and have Holly and Rhodes win the gold at the Ppv by eliminating the champs last.

    4) Dreamer, Sandman, Mahoney & Cryme Tyme Vs Dykstra, Carlito Regal & Deuce & Domino
    10 Man Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match. Have Carlito and Dykstra the survivors of the match to push the younger talent on the roster.

    5) Randy Orton (C) Vs Shawn Michaels
    Wwe Title Match. Stays the same.

    6) Team Triple H (HHH, Hardy Boyz, Mysterio, Kane) Vs Team Kennedy (Kennedy, Umaga, MVP, Marcus Cor Von, Finlay)
    10 Man Survivor Series Elimination Match. I would keep Matt Hard in there and replace daddy v with Cor Von and take the fight to triple hhh and give him a push and I would make the survivors of the match Mr Kennedy and Marcus Cor Von, it would be a much better match then the one tha happened tbh, I would of pushed Kennedy high in 07.

    7) The Undertaker (C) Vs Batista
    World Heavyweight Title Hell in a Cell Match. I would have Batista win the title at Surivor Series with help from Edge and I'd have Taker have a good reign from Mania up to Survivor series and get screwed out of the title by edge.

    That's my Ppv and I think it could deliver.
    This stays the same with Edge interfering at the end

    7) Kurt Angle (C) The Undertaker

    I would like to thank the OP for helping me get through my last week at work. I randomly stumbled upon this and after reading the first post, I immediately respected your insight.

    Over the past couple of months I've watched every single WWE ppv from 86 to 98 (just finished WM14) which I think was a very good Mania!

    Growing up, SS was always my favourite show and I was always rallying for more traditional SS matches but looking back on the early ones which I loved when I was younger, they weren't actually that good!

    I got up too 95, so I will continue to read your reviews over the next week or so and I look forward too it.

    Great post.

    I haven't seen every survivor series, but out of all the ones I saw 89 might be my favorite. In fact the first 5 shows were awesome IMO.
