Lost in the hulabaloo of the ending of RAW and the 2 hours and 50 minutes if nigh-unwatchable suck that preceded it is the announcement that WWE has re-instituted Survivor Series after announcing a few months back it was a goner.
I guess that makes sense. 23 years of fandom have been very attached to the name "Survivor Series" and with ECW gone, it can very easily become RAW vs. Smackdown in team on team matches. This probably means the end of Bragging Rights, which goes the way of the Scramble matches as revolutionary new concepts in sports entertainment.
If you're or will be in Miami, Survivor Series ticket info is here:
Very glad to hear this...Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series are the 4 parts of WWE's PPV foundation. They shouldn't be tinkered with. For that matter, I really wish they would have kept Backlash as well, was a fitting name coming off the biggest PPV of the year. Not only that, they can keep the SS matches brand loyal, except for perhaps one interbrand SS match, and let Bragging Rights stay as well.
WHAT WORKED: -The In-Ring work was fine for the most part. You move the matches from three minutes to five minutes and you donít break any of them up with commercial breaks and you instantly have a much much better show.
