|WWE Survivor Series 2013 Results|
Our panel for tonight is Mick Foley (who says "it's great to be here, in Boston, but I have no ear, in Boston"...LMAO) as well as Booker T and Bret Hart, who looks pretty good for someone who clearly looks older than the last time we saw him.
Kickoff: The Miz vs. Kofi Kingston
Miz looks like he's very excited to be a heel again. For some reason, The Miz shakes Kofi's hand to start the match. Standard style match. Kofi looks pretty strong in comparison to The Miz just squashing him for a resurgence of his career. Miz picks up a victory by reversing a pin that Kofi almost caught Miz with.
WINNER: The Miz via pinfall.
This is a little weird for a heel turn victory. The match wasn't that exciting, but it wasn't that bad, either.
After the match, The Miz goes for another handshake and Kofi Kingston slaps him in the face instead. Could Kofi be turning heel?
Traditional Elimination Match: Rey Mysterio, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, The Usos vs. The Shield & The Real Americans
Cody Rhodes interrupts Zeb Colter's speech about twerking. Yes, you read that correctly. Cody Rhodes eliminates Dean Ambrose with a roll up very early on. Wow. Okay, my predictions were wrong. After a 6-1-9, a superkick and a splash, Jey Uso eliminates Jack Swagger. A babyface has to get eliminated now. Cesaro swings one Uso after the other! The crowd pops for that a lot. While Cesaro is dizzy, Cody Rhodes eliminates him. We're down to Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. Jimmy Uso is eliminated after Roman Reigns spears him. Roman Reigns gets the blind tag on Seth Rollins and spears Cody Rhodes. Cody Rhodes is eliminated by Roman Reigns. We're down to Goldust, Rey Mysterio and Jey Uso against Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins eliminates Jey Uso with his stomp to the head. 2-on-2. Seth Rollins is eliminated by Rey Mysterio. Reigns should probably eliminate Goldust next. After some struggle, Goldust is eliminated with a Roman Reigns spear. Rey goes for a 619 and Roman Reigns spears him to win!
WINNERS: Roman Reigns is the sole survivor
I didn't think Roman would be the ONLY person to get a spotlight, but man, they really did want to put that focus on him, didn't they? Still cool for him, and I'm glad I got my prediction right, even though my order was completely different - minus Reigns getting a quick spear on Rey to win the finale.
Intercontinental Championship: Big E Langston (c) vs. Curtis Axel
Axel looks pumped. It's a shame he's going to lose. He's getting a lot of offense for what could have been a squash match, though. Axel hits the Perfect Plex, but Langston kicks out. The only way this match is ending is with a BIG ending....which just happened.
WINNER: Big E Langston via pinfall.
Decent filler for what it was worth.
Traditional Elimination Match: Natalya, Naomi, Cameron, Jojo, Eva Marie, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee, Tamina Snuka, Rosa Mendes, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae and Kaitlyn
Naomi eliminates Alicia Fox. Cameron is eliminated by Rosa Mendes. Rosa Mendes is eliminated by Nikki Bella. Summer Rae shows off her dance skills in an impromptu danceoff with Nikki Bella, who does the worm and then nails Summer in the face with a kick. Summer Rae is eliminated. Eva Marie comes in to boos and is quickly eliminated by Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn eliminates Naomi. Brie Bella eliminates Kaitlyn. Aksana eliminates Brie with a spinebuster. Nikki eliminates Aksana. Did I miss Nikki's elimination? Jojo puts up a fight against Tamina, but is eliminated by AJ, and now they're claiming that Natalya is the last on her team. Tamina misses a splash and Natalya eliminates her by making her tap out to the Sharpshooter. Natalya locks the Sharpshooter on AJ and makes her tap out.
WINNER: Natalya via submission. Could have sworn that Nikki wasn't eliminated.
You knew what you were getting into with this match, but honestly, I don't think it was as bad as it could have been.
Backstage, Randy Orton talks to Charles Robinson about how they go way back and he wants him to call it down the middle. He says he's going to do what The Authority said.
As Josh Mathews is about to ask the legends panel a question, Ryback comes out to interrupt and say that he could intimidate everyone, but he's not a bully. He issues an open challenge. How much do you bet Mark Henry comes out?
Ryback vs. Mark Henry
The big man comes back, bald and ready for action. You can expect him to win this, of course. Not much to talk about here. This is just filler, so it isn't even as involved as their match at WrestleMania. Henry is looking good. He doesn't seem to have much ring rust and he has a lot of energy.
WINNER: Mark Henry via pinfall.
Poor Ryback, losing again. He might end up with one of the worst records of pay-per-view losses ever.
World Heavyweight Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
This is a match that I'm not going to be into, so I apologize if you're looking for excitement on my end. In fact, you know exactly what is going to happen in this match, so there's really no point in following it move by move. Del Rio will target Cena's arm. Cena will fight back. A 9-count will happen on the outside. Del Rio will fall back when Cena attempts Attitude Adjustments multiple times. Del Rio will lock on the armbreaker but Cena will break out with pure power. Del Rio will reach the ropes with the STF and then it will end with an Attitude Adjustment or something. For the most part, that's what DID happen, after typing that all out. Predictable.
WINNER: John Cena via pinfall.
Snooze. I don't want to see Del Rio anymore.
CM Punk & Daniel Bryan vs. Luke Harper & Erick Rowan
This feels like a Raw match, which isn't a compliment. The fans seem really into it in the audience, but I don't know why. There's nothing that is making me excited and get into it. Harper and Rowan are handling things rather well, considering, but nobody is going to remember this.
WINNERS: CM Punk and Daniel Bryan via pinfall.
This wasn't worthy of one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year. Remember when The Rock and John Cena were in a tag team match and that mattered? This was not the case.
WWE Championship: Randy Orton (c) vs. Big Show
The fans were not predominantly into this match, chanting "boring" and "we want Bryan". Nothing of note happens until Charles Robinson somehow suffers a leg injury, which just seemed awkwardly done to me. Big Show and Orton brawl on the outside for a bit, which includes Show hitting the WMD on Orton. All of this means jack shit, however, as Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Kane come out to cause a distraction that allows Orton to capitalize and hit an RKO on Big Show. It is followed up with a punt to the head and Orton retains the title.
WINNER: Randy Orton via pinfall
Blah. I didn't expect much, I didn't get much.
After this is done with, John Cena comes out to give us a tease that they might have a title unification between these two at WrestleMania...which I hope doesn't happen.
1. Roman Reigns
2. People Power / Kofi and Miz handshake potential
3. Total Divas didn't Totally Suck
1. John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio
2. The Raw tag match of the night between Punk/Bryan and the Wyatt Family
