Video Package: A video package is shown hyping the PPV…

Match #1 (Singles Match): Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz (Winner: The Miz via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): Solid match with a lot of back and forth and reversals from both superstars. The finish saw Miz reverse a rollup attempt by Kofi for the pin. After the match Miz attempts to shake Kofi’s hand but Kofi gives him a slap in the face. Overall this was a great match and could have been on the main card if you ask me…

Survivor Series PPV…

Match #2 (IC Title Match, Singles Match): Curtis Axel vs. © Big E Langston (Winner: Big E via PF, Rating: 3.5 of 4): This was a solid match and these two work well in the ring together. The finish saw Big E hit Axel with the Big Ending for the pin. After the match Big E cut a promo about how winning the IC title was like the Red Sox winning the World Series. Overall a solid match I hope they continue this feud for a couple more weeks…

Backstage Segment: AJ Lee is backstage cutting a promo about the Divas Survivor Series match with the other Divas….

Match #3 (7 on 7 Elimination Tag Match): Total Divas vs. Rosa/Aksana/Fox/ Katelyn/ Rea/ Tamina/ ©AJ Lee (Winner: Total Divas via Sub, Rating: 3.0 0f 4): #1 Alicia Fox by Na, #2 Cameron by RM, #3 Rosa Mendez by NB, #4 Summer Rea by NB, #5 Eve Marie by Ka, #6 Naomi by Ka, #7 Katelyn by BB, #8 Brie Bella by Ak, #9 Aksana by NB, #10 Jo Jo by  AJ, #11 Tamina by Na, #12 AJ Lee by Na. This match was pretty boring and kind of dragged on until the last about 10 mins or so when we got to the real meat of the Divas locker room. Overall this was pretty much the only way they could get all the Diva’s involved in the PPV…

Backstage Segment: Randy Orton is backstage talking to Charles Robinson about calling his match right down the middle…

In Ring Segment: Ryback comes out and runs down the HOF panel (Booker T, Mick Foley and Bret Hart). He then challenges anyone in the back to a match. And a returning Mark Henry accepts his challenge…

Match #4 (Singles Match): Ryback vs. Mark Henry (Winner: Henry via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This was a slow developing match for my taste. The finish did see Henry hit a cross body out of the corner, before hitting the WSS for the pin. Overall this was a typical Ryback/Henry match hard to watch. Don’t know why they keep putting them together…

 Video Package: A video package is shown chronicling the rivalry between Del Rio/Cena over the WHC…

Backstage Segment: John Cena is backstage with the doctor getting the final ok before the match…

Match #5 (WHC Title Match, Singles Match): Alberto Del Rio vs. © John Cena (Winner: © Cena via PF, Rating: 3.5 of 4): Del Rio is getting no reaction from the crowd as usual. This was a great match a lot of back and forth. Del Rio showed a lot of in ring skill, but just no crowd reaction. This finish saw Del Rio go for a 2nd cross arm breaker and have it reversed into a AA by Cena for the win. Overall it was a classic match between these two and they gave the crowd their money’s worth in this matchup…

Backstage Segment: A segment was show with R-Truth and Santino playing with the Power Wreckers play set when Los Matadors, Fandango and John Laranitus ask to play after their match is over…

Video Package: A video package is shown chronicling the feud between Punk/Byran and the Wyatt’s…

Match #6 (Tag Team Match): CM Punk/Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt’s (Winner: Punk/Bryan via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4): This was an amazing match. Both teams had more than one shining moment. The crowd was completely into the match even getting in a couple of “this is awesome!” chants. The Wyatt’s still come out looking strong and Punk and Bryan get the win. Brey Wyatt teases jumping in the ring with Punk and Bryan but then decides to walk away. Overall a great way to end this feud on a high note…

Backstage Segment: Randy Orton burst in on the Authority and John Cena gets angry and storms out…

Video Package: A video package is shown chronicling the feud between Orton, Big Show and the Authority…

Match #7 (Singles Match, WWE Title Match, ME): Big Show vs. © Randy Orton (Winner: ©Orton via PF, Rating: 3.5 of 4): This was a solid match that saw both men put it on the line. The Authority came out and distracted Show allowing Orton to hit a RKO. The finish saw Orton punt Big Show in the head and get the pin. Post match Orton’s celebration was interrupted by John Cena and they face off in the ring raising their belts and staring each other down as the PPV goes off the air…

Overall Rating (3.5 of 4): This was one of the better PPV’s this year. The overall taste that was left in my mouth was pretty sweet as it feels like the Authority is going to challenge Orton every step of the way…

Match of the Night: Match #6 (Tag Team Match): CM Punk/Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt’s (Winner: Punk/Bryan via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4)
