SURVIVOR SERIES 2012

Ah yes indeed the event that would see the debut of The Shield which I personally love. This would also be the event in which CM Punk would defend his title in a triple threat match. Would he retain the title and keep his reign intact, I was very much hoping so.

1.[ELIMINATION MATCH]BRODUS CLAY, REY MYSTERIO, SIN CARA, TYSON KIDD, & JUSTIN GABRIEL VS TENSAI, EPICO & PRIMO, & THE PRIMETIME PLAYERS-this was a great opening match that would see various tag teams and two big guys come together to do battle. As with most matches like this these days is fast paced and full of high spots. The action between the established teams is the high light here, and this match goes to show they are not using Tyson enough. The big guys have a showdown that is good but the little guys steal the show. In the end Rey's team takes the win after a great opening contest.

2.[DIVAS TITLE]EVE VS KAITLYN-this wasn't a horrible Diva's match but it wasn't great either. It was a good contest and had some good moments. In the end Eve keeps the title after a decent Diva's encounter.

3.[US TITLE]ANTONIO CESARO VS R TRUTH-this was a good enough match that really saw Antonio take it to Truth for most of the match. Personally I would have loved to see these two in a more competitive match but it was good. Cesaro retains the title.

4.[WORLD TITLE]BIG SHOW VS SHEAMUS-this was a pretty good match with Big Show dominating with his size and power advantage. But Sheamus would fight back even demonstrating his strength at points. Good back and forth even though I would say Show was the more dominate one. People have been upset about the ending but I kinda liked it as it continued the story between these two.

5.[ELIMINATION MATCH]DOLPH ZIGGLER, ALBERTO DEL RIO, DAMIEN SANDOW, DAVID OTUNGU, WADE BARRETT VS KANE, DANIEL BRYAN, THE MIZ, KOFI KINGSTON, RANDY ORTON-this was at one point a Team Foley against Team Punk match at one point. I was really looking forward to that but then WWE went and changed it so we got this match. Don't get me wrong I love this match but I really love the old Survivor Series in which every match was an elimination match. Any way this is a fast paced match especially at the beginning and is one of the best matches on the card. These matches are always fun to me especially when these types of talents are in it. There are all kinds of high spots here and memorable moments. Also I should mention that David replaced Cody Rhodes here after he was injured on "Main Event". Nay way in the end Dolph pins Orton, the ending I was going for.

6.[WWE TITLE]CM PUNK VS JOHN CENA VS RYBACK-this was a good triple threat match that actually felt like a triple threat match. Sometimes these matches just seem like spot matches but this one felt like an actual match. It would go back and forth between two guys in the ring and one out or down. Sometimes all three would be involved like a double team or something, including Ryback taking a ride into one of the tables. Then in the end The Shield debuts attacking Ryback and make him take his second ride. This leads to Punk being able to pin Cena without Ryback breaking it up.

BONUS
We get a little interview with CM Punk and Paul E after winning the triple threat match, love it.

BONUS RAW SEGMENTS

First we get the Vickie and Dolph accusing AJ of messing around with Cena.

1.BRAD MADDOX VS RYBACK-this match was basically all about Ryback smashing Brad and getting revenge. Personally I was going for Maddox, I like this dude for some reason. And way if he had won this match he would have got a million dollar contract. But instead he was destroyed by Ryback and put into an ambulance.

2.KANE & THE MIZ VS RHODES SCHOLARS-the fans got to choose who would join not only Kane on this night but also join Team Foley. It turned out that The Miz was picked thankfully because that is who I wanted on there. This was a good tag match especially for Raw but it was really to push Miz's face turn. I liked that Bryan was really jealous of Miz teaming with Kane. It came to the point in which Bryan came after Miz only to help Miz and Kane win. Also the interaction between the champs before the match was funny.

3.CM PUNK VS JOHN CENA-whether it is a title match or not I hate when the champion comes out first. I like Cena and all but he did not need to come out after the champ which at the time was Punk. Any way this was a really good match and main event for Raw but these two always work well together. This was best match of the night for sure but how could it not be? I didn't like that Cena won the match after Ryback prevented Punk from leaving nut at least Punk won the one that counted.

Next up we move to the Smackdown before the PPV. First we get The Miz and Team Foley going at each other only to be interrupted by Team Ziggler. That of course leads to the matches that night pitting members of each team against each other.

4.DOLPH ZIGGLER & ALBERTO DEL RIO VS THE MIZ & RANDY ORTON-this was a really good tag match here which is no surprise as Smackdown usually delivers on match quality. Good back and forth between the two teams with Miz getting the pin fall. That leads to Randy RKOing him after the win. This match showcased the problems between the team members on Team Foley.

This was a good event over all and I was glad that Punk kept the belt. I really loved the debut of The Shield here destroying Ryback. Dean is the future, I am telling you now. Great Blu-ray as it had all those special features and matches from Raw and Smackdown. If you are fan then go pick this up.

I heard this one did not make what they expected when it came to PPV returns.
