    So I guessing main event for Survivor Series… The Miz, R-Truth, Del Rio and Nash vs Punk, HHH, Cena and The Rock….

  2. AJ Starr says:

    Oh good lord… those morons actually recycled the Show/Lesnar finish?

    People can say TNA has bad booking, at least they don’t flat out insult your intelligence by pretending something they did a few years back is brand new!

  3. Criss Brian says:

    This was a garbage PPV. Ziggler should have been 0-2, the Nash thing is boring, Orton didn’t need that win, the copy at finish in the World Title match was dumb, why the hell is Daniel Bryan losing all the time, and after everything we’ve seen in the ring, John Cena loses a Last Man Standing Match to a belt shot off the head? Nothing was good at all

  4. Joshua Shaver says:

    I have to admit the PPV wasn’t that bad compared to the shame of a PPV three weeks prior entitled Hell in a Cell. I felt that night the matches were rushed way too much.

    Air Boom defeating Ziggler and Swagger only makes Ziggler and Swagger more in line to finally win those titles.

    I actually thought Ryder would win the WWE US Title for at least 24 hours.

    This has been the better divas match of the year.

    Miz and Truth defeating Triple H and CM Punk with help from Nash makes Survivor Series look alittle more interesting.

    Randy Orton winning only fuels the fued with Rhodes.

    The finsh of the World Title match was too predictable.

    But, I have to admit the even though Cena didnt lose cleanly the match was overall the best I’ve seen from Del Rio.

    My Survivor Series Prediction:

    John Cena, The Rock, CM Punk, Triple H, and Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio, Miz, Truth, Kevin Nash, and Cody Rhodes in five on five Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

    Big Show vs. Mark Henry(C) in No Holds Barred Match for the World Title. WWE Will claim the ring has been super reinforce to hold any move these two perform.)

    Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne, Daniel Bryan, and Zack Ryder vs. Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Wade Barrett, and Drew McIntyre in five on five Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match

    Eve vs. Kelly vs. Natalya vs. Beth Phoenix(C) in fatal four way for the WWE Divas Title

    Sin Cara vs. Fake Former Sin Cara Negro

  5. Captain Ass says:

    AJ, are you that much of a TNA fan boy that WWE does nothing right? They can “pretend” that it didn’t happen before, but those of us who know it did happen before are none for the worse, are we? Do the words “suspend disbelief” mean anything to you? I get a kick out of people who have to mention WWE’s so called “competition” on a WWE PPV results thread. Save your rederick for people who buy into your TNA ass kissing garbage.

    Back on track, the PPV was decent, but not the best. I don’t know why Ziggler is the one getting pinned when he is the champion. Get used to Nash being around more for the rest of the year. They had to have Cena lose because his program with the Rock has nothing to do with the WWE title. PPV’s can always be better, but I didn’t think it was THAT bad.

  6. Freeman Cooper says:

    Captain Ass, that statement is quite ironic coming from you, seeing as what your name is. And, suspension of belief is something that’s supposed to be used for movies & TV shows, NOT a wrestling show. And, pretending something didn’t happen is stupid for a wrestling promotion to do. So, Captain Ass, if you don’t like AJ’s comments, why don’t you go kiss yourself, since you’d be kissing ass.

  7. chris says:

    Captain ASS,

    I’m assuming you’re Vince or Linda trolling these sites, and posting under a fake name.

    Would have been nice to see at least one title change, but we have to remember, this is the WWE..the home of meaningless title belts. I enjoy how people time and time again defend WWE, putting on blinders to how bad the product has actually gotten. I don’t mind the recycled finish, nor do i mind the end to the Punk/HHH v Miz/Truth match, but how many people are the Miz and Truth going to fued with?

    And for the Ryder fans out there…did you think the WWE was going to give him a belt. The WWE is spending too much time making bad movies, and producing weekly television programming to be bothered to listen to the fans.

    Yet another sub par PPV booking……Time to pop in some New Japan wrestling, and get the stain of this PPV out of my mind.

  8. kev says:

    Am I the only one surprised that super cena didnt get back the title???

  9. AJ Starr says:

    Captain… if you’re going to sit there and say “suspend your belief,” in order to do that, I have to feel like I’m not watching a repeat. Using Show, in the same manner, with the same referee, and the same exact type of “collapse,” with Henry instead of Lesnar, less than 10 years later… where do I suspend my belief?

    Lesnar and Show doing it is one of the most replayed moments in WWE… it was flat out STUPID of them to do that.

    TNA fanboy? You do realize I have seen about 10 times more WWE footage this year than TNA, correct? I’ve seen about 7 Impacts at this point, and one PPV. I have seen about 20 RAWs, about 15 Smackdowns, and 5 or 6 PPVs.

    I suppose next PPV, Cena should beat Del Rio in a First Blood Match, where if Cena wins, Lauranitis can’t ever come back to TV… but he does anyway 2 weeks later? How about, we have someone who got buried by Triple H… say Punk, “impregnate” a Diva, only for one of the big guys who can’t get over… say… Khali, to accidentally knock the Diva over, and cause her to miscarry? Or better yet, tomorrow night… JR gets fired again!

  10. Billy Gunn says:

    So Christian has a great beginning in 2011 and now jobs to Sheamus week after week. Sheamus is a good worker and all but kinda sick of him being superman apprentice.

    Show and Henry finish has been done before, so doesnt make it all that special, maybe newer fans will appreciate it haha.

    Rhodes should of gone over Orton, even if it wasn’t a clean finish. Been enjoying Rhodes on Smackdown!.

    Zack Ryder should of gone over, the U.S title does nothing for Ziggler, he’s had it for a while, yet no one gives a dam. Don’t understand how Swagger who was world champ last year comes 2nd to Dolph??? Dam Spirit Squad.

    Glad to see Nash return for the 3rd or 4th time this year, even though he is a bit rusty, its something different. Nash VS Triple H Hell in a Cell match anyone (considering WWE are using storylines from 2003, (See Show & Henry). Felt the CM Punk push has fizzled this last month, he is a hell of an wrestler/entertainer, I know everyone says it but this man needs to be pushed to the moon.

    Wasn’t a fan of Del Rio and I’m still not sure, but he worked a good match with Cena, Miz and Truth was kinda predictable to do a run in but will probally lead up to Survior Series,I like Joshua Shaver’s predictions for the main event. Survivor Series needs to deliver as its one of the big ones, Well at least The Rock will bring in buy rates.

    Sorry for ranting guys,

  11. david r. says:

    I agree with Joshua Shavers predictions, except one. How the hell are they going to put Mcintyre into it? Not saying he doesn’t deserve it, just saying he won’t be there. I would say, as much as it pains me, the 5th in that heel team would be Otunga.

  12. Becaa212 says:

    @ Chris
    I don’t think you can say WWE has meaningless title belts…It’s nice to see the champions hold onto them and have lengthy reigns. Its better than when TNA pass them around like hot potatoes. TNA with the KO’s title lately has been just pathetic, it makes the champions look weak and gives them meaningless title reigns. At least WWE want their champions to look like deserving champions.

  13. Matt says:

    Lame haters are always gonna hate, pretty enjoyable ppv

  14. -Jay- says:

    apparently cena is out of the title picture for a while = refreshing.

    Given the state of pro wrestling and wwe right now i didn’t expect a 5 star ppv, haven’t in some time.

    On to survivor series hopefully it delivers.

  15. Bommaniac says:

    Ring collapse, hornswoggle pancake. Thought there would be a stalemate but just not a re-run.

    That powerbomb was terrible. Nash will be sore and out for the next four weeks recovering from his lengthy appearance.

    Shouldn’t expect title changes with such a short turnaround between ppvs.

    Should expect Cena getting a massive beatdown soon and Rock makes the save. Had to have him lose to start the Rock angle.

    The Bellas watching the backstage beatdown we should also probably see a women’s survivor series match with Nat, Beth, Bellas vs K2, Eve + 2 more. WWE loves getting more skin out for the boys. Most divas have a partner at the moment. Bellas, Nat/Beth, K2/Eve, AJ/Kaitlyn.

    Ziggler is a class act.

    Umm, Henry and Show weigh more than Lesnar + Big Show, so yeah.. If those two broke the ring, it’s good continuity for the ring to break with Henry and Show. Kthx.

  17. Meh says:

    The US title does nothing for Zack Ryder as he is a joke with a stupid theme song and no ring style, (he’s not speedy, not technincal, not a brawler, not a high flyer, not powerful, not a mat wrestler) he is a fad like how My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic currently is.

    One day once the Ryder Riders (aka Zack Pack) stop riding Ryder he will go back to jobbing on Superstars and Raw to people who have that have more talent than him and eventually released.

    @Meh: COULDNT AGREE MORE RYDER IS TERRIBLE THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE WILL BE WHEN THE RELEASE HIM! Stick ryder and slater under the ring next time they have show/henry collapse it! NASH COMING BACK… ABOUT DAMN TIME! I dont even care who its with at this point just REFORM THE nWo!

    Ive been reading this site for a long time, but since its makeover ive never commented on a thread. I come on here to read spoilers if i dont have time to watch the shows, and generally to see what the latest news is.

    Day after day i find myself asking though, do any of you watch WWE or TNA for the wrestling? Or to watch to switch off from the world and relax. Or do you just watch so you can come on these sites to give your opinion, which generally always seems to be negative?

    Forget that an angle on Vengeance has been done before…the entertainment aspects of the show you didnt like…what about the actual wrestling? The in ring performances? What are your views on that?

  20. Money says:

    Wrestlig fan I agree with you 100% I am tried of these ungrateful little kids on this site it gets annoyong they never tlk about the actual in ring action they are always complaining about who should have won who should have the title TNA is so ucgh better,or what angle has been done before (btw King did mention the ring collapsing did happen before with Brock Lesner and during a 50 Man battle Royal that he was in)seriously get out of here if all you ever do is complain I come here expecting to chat with some people about how good or bad the matches were but I never get a chance to because all you little kids just complain. As for you AJ seriously you go around calling people marks for WWE when you are the biigest mark I have ever seen for TNA its a good company with great talent we get that but you don’t have to keep pushing it down people’s throats so just chill with that okay its starting to get annoying.

  21. Money says:

    Also AJ if you hate WWE so much why do you even continue to watch it or comment or their product if you hate it as much as you say you do just move on kid and stop wasting your time with it.

  22. RJ Ace says:

    @AJ Starr – While I agree that the Show-Henry ring collapse was lame, you saying that TNA doesn’t recycle their stories and angles or that they don’t insult the audience’s intelligence is a joke and a real credibility killer on your part. TNA has been pretty good lately but that doesn’t make up for the last 5 years of horrific logic. Almost every heel turn in TNA’s history as been the exact same. A guy come down to the ring, pretends he’s going to hit the heel with a a weapon, and then turns at the last second to hit the “unsuspecting” babyface. The idiot announcers in TNA always act suprised when a heel turn occurs even though it happens almost every week. TNA has absolutely ruined the heel/face turn because they never allow someone to stay on one side long enough to allow them to grow in the role. Name one wrestler in TNA that has been a heel or face non-stop for the last 2-3 years. I’ll wait. Hulk Hogan being forgiven in one night for everything he did to Dixie Carter and Sting in the last year also makes zero sense. It’s like when Hogan and the NWO tried murdering The Rock back in 2002 and then all of a sudden, Hogan and Rocky are teaming together a few weeks later. It lacks logic in many ways because Hogan has a track record as a bad guy. Why should Dixie and Sting just assume that this isn’t another Immortal swerve? As a matter of fact, Immortal is just another play on the non-stop power struggle storyline that has been going on in TNA forever. WWE sucks right now and I have no issue with you or anyone ripping them apart for their idiocracy. However, to bring TNA into it as if they are a model for how a wrestling company should operate is insane. I’m not trying to get into a flame war with you, because I find myself agreeing with you about 70 percent of the time. This time though, I think you’re way off base.

  23. Wrestling Fan says:

    The ring collapse was always going to happen at some point. Its happened before, so why shouldnt it happen again? Its not done every year, it gives new fans who never saw Brock Lesnar, something to talk about and puts over even further the size and power of the two men.

    Probably not the greatest of matches, but a finish that has people talking, even if you didnt like it.

  24. Captain Ass says:

    @ AJ Starr, your comments always seem to favor TNA over WWE, that’s why I called you a TNA fan boy. Both companies do stupid things and make stupid mistakes. Recycling of storylines, characters, etc are things that happen in movies and entertainment all over the world. It made MORE sense that the ring collapse with Show/Henry because they are legit 400 ponders. Brock was a 280 pounder at the time. Burger King copies McDonalds, and WWE and TNA get ideas from each other. It’s just what happens. If you don’t want to see recycled goods, perhaps you shouldn’t watch wrestling.

    I agree with @Money…..if you don’t like what you watch then don’t watch it instead of bitching about it all the time. I understand that some people bitch about things because they actually love it but are frustrated with it being stale. And this is coming from a WWE fan for 30 years….they ARE stale, no doubt about it, but they do a lot of good too. Not everything is stale.

    I agree with Becaa212. Champions shouldn’t lose a title just because they defend them on PPV’s. Back in the old days titles would switch hands at PPV’s all the time. I think the thing that makes titles “meaningless” is when they are thrown around from wrestler to wrestler all the time. A true champion is someone who can defend his/her title many times, which truly makes the title have meaning.

    As for my colorful nickname, I’ve had this name for 20 years on the net from my message boards, forums and E Feds. This is how people know me, so I kept the name at this place. Just FYI.

  25. DeathNote81 says:

    Ryder’s not great, but he HAS shown improvement since his Edgehead days; and that’s coming from someone who HATED Hawkins & Ryder, and their pre-mature push.

    I’m surprised that he lost. It seemed like they were setting him up to win the title. I also thought that Swagger and Ziggles were going to win the tag belts. I was HOPING they were going to win the titles.

    Oh, well…
