Survivor Series Preview: 25 years of The Deadman
Tonight World Wrestling Entertainment returns to Pay Per View with Survivor Series. The annual fall classic has been filled with tradition and memorable moments and this year we celebrate twenty five years of The Undertaker. Known for creating a legacy at the granddaddy of them all WrestleMania The Deadman made his debut at the fall showcase and has made nothing but classic memories for a lifetime. Due to an unfortunate injury to Seth Rollins which will put him out of action for a while the former champion had to relinquish the WWE World Heavyweight Championship which led to Triple H announcing a tournament to crown a new champion which means there will be a new champion crowned tonight.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyler Breeze
weeks after making an impactful debut from NXT Tyler Breeze was looking to make a mark, and he found that opportunity when he attacked Dolph Ziggler on a recent episode of Miz TV. Adding Zigglers old flame Summer Rae to the mix and it’s a combustible situation the show off is looking to get revenge on the young cocky and brash upstart after being attacked for weeks on Smack Down. Will the show off slow down the rising star of Tyler Breeze.
Prediction: Dolph Ziggler
with the Royal Rumble coming up i can see this being a reoccurring feud up until then. I didn’t think Ziggler would fully recover from that horrendous feud with Rusev most of the year so this is refreshing with Tyler Breeze he can put on a good match but i have no expectations for a five star match even though Ziggler still needs a repackage or a different push this is good for him right now.
Traditional 5 on 5 Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match
Since the inception of the fall classic the marquee match of the event is the traditional 5 on 5 elimination tag team match. A match where ten superstars forge alliances and battle it out to see which team will come out on top. Superstars like John Cena, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, and CM Punk have all went to war in matches like this one and this year will be no different.
Prediction: any team that has The New Day in it no explanation just know that NEW DAY ROCKS!
Kane & The Undertaker vs. The Wyatt Family
For over two decades The Undertaker and his brother Kane have been a dominant force in the WWE taking on all comers and taking them down. The maniacal Bray Wyatt and his family have also caused destruction in the WWE and look to take the torch from the brothers of destruction as the new face of fear. After an eerie attack on The Undertaker after a gruesome Hell In A Cell match with Brock Lesnar last month Wyatt and his clan made it known that they are a force to be reckoned with and he will take out the brothers Undertaker and Kane. On the twenty five year anniversary of the illustrious career of The Undertaker will the deadman and the devils favorite demon fall to the power of the Wyatt Family or will the brothers of destruction survive another war.
Prediction: The Wyatt Family
I still feel some type of way about this feud especially with the way Bray Wyatt has been booked to be honest I have no idea how this will play out I just want the Wyatts to go over.
Divas Championship: Charlotte(c) vs. Paige
Former teammates turn bitter rivals at Survivor Series when Divas Champion Charlotte goes one on one with Paige. At the height of the Divas Revolution former Team PCB member Paige only had one goal in mind and that was to be Divas Champion again, so after Charlotte defeated Nikki Bella at Night of Champions Paige made it her mission to rain on the champions parade. Paige has proved over the past couple of weeks that she will stop at nothing to become champion even stooping to the lowest level of calling out Charlottes father Hall of Famer Ric Flair and her dead brother Reid. who will survive this war in the Divas Revolution.
The Divas division is quite complex right now with Nikki out it seems like it will just be Paige battling for the title for a while unless they bring Sasha Banks or Naomi into the picture even Natalya where is she at but then again it could be worse Eva Marie has to come up to the main roster soon.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semifinals: Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio
The World Title tournament is on fire right now and this semifinal match up will not disappoint when Roman Reigns goes one on one with United States Champion and leader of Mex America Alberto Del Rio. Since his return at Hell In A Cell Alberto Del Rio has been on a surge with Zeb Coulter behind him Del Rio only has his sights set on the WWE World Champion just like his opponent Roman Reigns. The championship was only a three count away at WrestleMania and he was a fingertip away from Money In The Bank so Reigns is hungry to be the champion.
Prediction: Roman Reigns

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semifinals: Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens is looking to make history at Survivor Series to potentially become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and the Intercontinental Champion at the same time. But standing in the way of his destiny is the lunatic fringe Dean Ambrose who also had his fingertips on the World Championship and he looks to come out on top in this Word Title tournament.
Prediction: Dean Ambrose
Kevin Owens will get his title shot soon enough I look forward to a good match with him and Ambrose and another feud down the line.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Finals
Prediction: Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns will become world champion at Survivor Series and the show will end in a heel turn whether it’s from Reigns or Ambrose one of these two are going to be fed up with coming up short in a title match and the WWE just wants to shove another shield break up feud down our throats. And it’s about time these guys turn heel too Ambrose was getting stale and we all know we want to go to sleep when Roman cuts a face promo at the beginning of Raw every week I would love to see Roman Reigns shun the crowd and be an arrogant jerk that just beats the crap out of people he’s capable of it he’s just holding back I mean for the love of Vince McMahon his cousin did it. And speaking of The Rock I wouldn’t be mad if Triple H came out and handed the title to Roman and he joined the Authority it would be pretty awkward when Seth Rollins comes back (to a face reaction Triple H adjace)and he’s wondering what’s going on and then that adds Seth to the feud and boom there’s your WrestleMania triple threat main event right there. Moral of the story is peoples lives would e easier if you just turn Roman Reigns heel I mean if you aren’t going to give Cesaro a push or put all three members of The New Day in the tournament my goodness just do the fans and the internet community a solid we will appreciate it.
