Re: WWE Survior Series 2012 predictions
Okay, I didn't post anything before cause I had 'very' low expectations of this PPV. Only the Team Dolph v/s Team Miz interested me. I was skeptical if Show/Sheamus could do another good match. The Triple Threat didn't interest me much; cause Cena's storyline with AJ deserved some development in a feud-wise instead of continuing it uselessly without purpose. Given the card, I was sure that either Undertaker or Lesnar would have make an appearance to save the show.
Coming to the outcomes: The Divas match didn't interest me. Cesaro's match had too little time. I love AJ; even if her current storyline with Vickie irritates me. Tamina's return was nice; I hope this leads to a nice feud since both AJ and Tamina are talented unlike Kaitlyn and remaining beef-up'd Barbies.
Big Show v/s Sheamus was again very good to my surprise; but it's sad WWE didn't pull out all stakes with Ziggler's cash-in. The traditional Elimination match was excellent wresling-wise; but it still lacked the tension of the old day's Survivors matches. Guess those times are gone. Ziggler as Sole Survivor was perfect choice; even if Miz or Barett could also have got the rub. Only thing I disliked was D-Bry eliminated by Del Rio's CAB - it pisses me to see him by submission but oh well...The Superkick for the finish was epic - I miss HBK!
Ryback/Punk/Cena was also surprisingly good. Even if WWE is stretching Punk v/s Cena feud too long (a bit how they did with Cena/Orton and extracted all the juices) but gotta admit that these two indeed have wonderful chemistry in the ring. They made Ryback much more smoother too in the process and there were great moments.
AMBROSE, ROLLINS, ANOA'I = MIND-F-BOGGLING AWESOME! I'm glad Creative finally locked in the Heyman Stable idea. If they do this well, this may go a long way. All 3 are future main-eventers if WWE play their cards carefully. I obviously love the finish. Is it me or can announce tables be now broken once Linda's Senate run is over? I hope Brock makes part-time appearances with the New Stable as Bad-Ass Enforcer. Somehow, I almost see Punk retaining against The Rock now and perhaps, all the way to Wrestlemania.
Overall, SS exceeded my expectations. Not my fav. PVV of the year but it could have been a washout if they missed on 2-3 things (especially the finish of Triple-Threat match).
