This has been brought up before, but the heel-to-face ratio for the Defecation Chamber or whatever is 2-4, and WWE logic (yeah, I know) states that someone turns heel. RVD and Booker SHOULD be out of the question, but we can never underestimate the writers' incompetence. Opinions? My pick is Kane, btw.
i dont know how they could logically turn kane with HHH in the match and have it work. I mean he was beating the hell out of faces in the last TLC match and he wasnt "turned" what do u suppose he could do that would turn him and not make the fans think, he's just doing what has to be done to win the match?
I think another good Survivor Series-related question is, "Who'll make their debut?" Generally, SS has been a chance to introduce a new face to the WWF/E (Taker, Angle, Rock, Jazz, etc). I don't think Steiner would qualify, as he's already a known quantity. Are they ready to call up one of the OVW-ers that we haven't already seen? Especially when they're already running a tournament for an OVW-ite to get a Royal Rumble slot on their tv program. Just curious...

Both the Steiner and the 'add two faces' suggestions could easily come to pass.
In War Games format, one side will be down 2-1 near the start no matter what, so in true WWEt fashion, they could render it 4-3 and just leave it like that, telegraphing who'll win the first toss, but not giving a shit, like most of their booking.
M. Cole: Oh no, what's Angle going to do with that chair. Tazz: Well, I think he wants to, you know, HIT HIM with it.
"We're pretty sure we know how the universe started, but we don't know what some of our own internal organs are for. Bet few intelligent species have hit THAT exacta!"
How about this, Kane aligns with HHH after revealing that there never was a Katie Vick and the two made up the story and were working together all along in order to kill ratings and/or stay at the top of the card while RVD and Booker are buried over and over. Works for me :)
It seems to me to be an every-man-for-himself kinda thing, so I don't see any real problem with an abundance of faces. Faces tend to fight each other in those sorts of situations with very little problems. If there were too many *heels*, that might be something to worry about.
Personally, I like the dynamic they have and would be hesitant to change it. There's sure as hell no one else on RAW who's a believable World champion just yet.
And, I doubt Steiner will wind up in this match. His first match against *anyone* would be worthy of hype on it's own, so there's no need to shoot the proverbial wad with a title shot right off the bat.
1. Balance 2. Both are perfectly good wrestlers who would have nothing better to do in this situation (since Ric is coming off the RVD feud and Christian is the tag champ with Jericho) 3. Ric would even provide another credible threat to win, and they could start lying the seeds for the Horsemen reunion (you know they're going to do it, so don't bitch about it).
Besides, it would be better than a non-sensical heel turn to even the sides, and it would be non-sensical for ALL FOUR of them...
I can see that happening. I can envision a long chain of lackeys until Matt finally gets frustrated with the whole damn thing and snaps. Don't know if it'd make for good TV, but it'd certainly be unique.
