A Survivor Series Preview with The Poncho Man

I have no idea if Rusty is reading these on the long hard road. His tour ends here in Eugene. You have a place to stay if you need it. I think I work till nine that night.

Watched reDRagon vs The Time Splitters on the bus coming from Autzen Stadium last night. It was a lot of fun. I like Bobby Fish almost too much. Working my way through it. Speaking of NJPW....Rusty...would you be interested in watching a NJPW PPV with The Marshall and I if Jim Ross was announcing said PPV? Because that is happening.

To spoiler or not to spoiler......tons of big time rumors for tonight's show. I kinda want to talk about them, but I guess I won''s some white text with some names....

Roman Reigns
Randy Orton

 That last one is kinda crazy bananas. The others...ho hum.

Supposedly Fandango is coming back tonight to face TBA on the preshow. Then I read Bad New Barrett is coming back on the preshow. Then they haven't announced an Adam Rose vs. The Bunny match. Could this all be connected?! Or partly connected? Now I can't find anything about Fandango. I'm so confused.

Alicia Fox, Natalya, Naomi & Emma vs. Paige, Cameron, Summer Rae & Layla (Divas Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match)

Sorry, I cut and paste that since it was too much typing. Let us hope for a Paige vs Emma feud that will be horribly botched by the writers of RAW.

WWE Tag Team Champions Gold & Stardust vs. The Miz & Damien Mizdow vs. Los Matadores vs. The Usos (Fatal 4-Way Match)

More too much typing. I have nothing to say about this match. I will watch it. I'm sure I will enjoy Mizdow, and parts of the action. Yep....

AJ Lee vs. Nikki Bella
This will sound weird, but I feel this whole ppv is built around matches that they did a fairly good job putting together storyline wise, but I don't care about any of them. Brie might get some revenge here....I think 30 days is almost up or something. Whatever

Dean Ambrose vs Bray Wyatt
Oh yeah...I care about this match...but the build has been horrible. Bray Wyatt doesn't like Dean Ambrose because Dean's dad was a deadbeat? I don't even understand. For this to work, you need to introduce us to Dean's dad. Show us that he's awful and that's why Dean is weird. But now, in my head, Sister Abigail (which works as an imaginary character) and Dean's dad (who doesn't) mean nothing to me. So yeah...this match will probably be good, and it has done NOTHING for either of these guys.

Team Cena vs. Team Authority
I think this could be a cluster of run-ins. Which might be fun. Make this shit crazy. Throw spaghetti at the walls. Do whatever. I don't even care who wins. Make Erick Rowan the last man standing! Why not! He's got a beard! He should be over! I've kinda enjoyed the build to this, but I realize it's probably just gonna be crazy town in the ring for 45 minutes leading to the spoilers up at the top.  Who knows.

I keep yawning from staring at the screen typing this. This is probably my worst preview yet. Sorry.

  1. I look forward to these preview posts more than I do the actual ppvs. I did watch it though, and without much skipping, so here's my half-assed review as a companion piece for your half-assed preview.
    I skipped the opening promo segment because it was like how Raw always starts. Not into it. I watched all the matches, though.
    Tag Team 4Way: Of course that was gonna happen. I still love the Dust Brothers.
    Divas Survivor Series: Yes! Emma rules. She owned the time she had, hopefully broke out.
    Wyatt/Ambrose: Really enjoyed watching them as characters, but most of the action was uninteresting. Lots of punching, and the gimmicks at the end were trite. Still a watchable match, but you're dead on about their feud not meaning anything. I would like to see them in a "mutual respect" kind of storyline, instead of this contrived rivalry. By the way, how long has Wyatt been using a urinagi as a signature? And did they switch Ambrose's old finisher name with his new double-underhook finisher? Why do I feel like I should know all this?
    RoseBunny/SlaterGator: Didn't they basically just have the same match on Raw?
    Nikki/AJ: I guess I'm glad the Bella story is moving forward, as opposed to being dropped at the 11th hour like so many other undercard angles. But I still don't care.
    Survivor Series: Was fun. The screwball finish was fun. The whole match felt like the Seth Rollins Show, he totally kicked ass. Everyone was fun to watch, though. Sting... gee!
