BEWARE!! This thread probably will spoil Smackdown for you. Assume that everything in this thread can and will spoil things for you. Now, do you really want to read on??
Okay, just don't bitch to me.
SURVIVOR SERIES 2003
Since 1987, the Survivor Series has been a staple of the WWF calendar. It always seemed like a way to work lesser-used guys onto a pay-per-view (like the Royal Rumble)...but damnit if it wasn't always a blast! So let's get ready for the 17th Annual Survivor Series by checking out what's been signed for the show thus far:
RAW MATCHES World Heavyweight Championship Match GOLDBERG [Champion] vs. TRIPLE H Survivor Series Match TEAM BISCHOFF (Scott Steiner, Mark Henry, Chris Jericho & Christian) vs. TEAM AUSTIN (Rob Van Dam, Booker T & the Dudley Boyz) Ambulance Match SHANE McMAHON vs. KANE Women's Championship Match MOLLY HOTTY..er...HOLLY [Champion] vs. LITA
SMACKDOWN MATCHES Buried Alive Match THE AWESOME UNDERTAKER [Awesome] vs. VINCE McMAHON Survivor Series Match TEAM ANGLE (Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, Hardcore Holly & the APA) vs. TEAM LESNAR (Brock Lesnar, Matt Morgan, Nathan Jones, Big Show & John Cena(?))
Also expect the Bashams, Haas & Benjamin, the Guerreros & Rikishi & Scotty 2 Hotty to be in action based on camera time the last couple weeks.
Any comments are appreciated, this will be updated with...y'know...OFFICIAL information sooner or later.
Okay, seriously, who in the hell is Matt Morgan? Is this someone I should care about? I'm assuming he's like A-Train from what people have said about him so far. I figured someone here would say something about the guy to get my memory going at some point, but so far I wouldn't know the guy from John Heildrenburg or whoever that sucky guy was on Raw.

Bleah. Looks like another PPV to skip. I'm really not interested in paying $34.95 to see two McMahon matches and the Son In Law get his vanity belt back.
And I really don't want to see one match that involves Nathan Jones, Matt Morgan, Big Show, APA and Hardcore Holly. A stacked roster and access to all the talent in the world and this is what makes it to a premier PPV event?!
I wish someone would clue Vince in that you can have a big freaky guy who can hardly work but you can't have 10 because none of them have much of a chance of getting over.

Long story short, he's a big OVW guy that was on Tough Enough 2, but quit due to a bum knee. He's got plenty of potential, and he's actually not all that bad in the ring. The only bad side is that he's green as grass.
When the announced that there would be a Team Angle vs. Team Lesnar survivor series match I was stoked. Then they introdced Lesnar's team and I still wasn't too disappointed. Big Show has grown on me, Lesnar has too (even though i diddn't really dislike him to begin with), Morgan I want see, Cena is good. Nathan Jones sucks but you have to have someone to eliminate first. So I figured no problem stick them up against Benoit, Angle, Guerreros, Rhyno, Mysterio, O'Haire, kanyon, etc etc. But they have to ruin it by throwing in APA and Holly. I hope all three of them get eliminated first and the Angle and Benoit by themselves starting whoopin butt on the other team maybe come down to an Angle/Benoit vs. Lesnar/Big Show final.
I think the Raw Survivor Series is a ten man also isn't it? So who else joins? Storm for the faces i'm guessing. Maybe test for the heels? When does he come back from his injury?
I'm looking pretty forward to the survivor series matches as well as the women's title. Lita is actually somewhat interesting for once.
I'm thinking some other possibilities are... Flair/Orton/Batista vs. Maven/Jindrak/Cade Tajiri/Yang/uhh..the other guy vs. Ultimo/Noble/Mysterio Guerreros vs. Bashams WGTT doing something

Things like that make me hate WWE... Vince Mcmahon in every single match on ppv's.?..
The absolutly hilarious feud of shane vs kane?... if you remember were this came for...shane must be looking for a match versus vince in WM...(please Lord have Mercy of us!!) after all, Mr Mcmahon has hurt Linda a lot too...
At least they didnt announced a match with Zack Gowen yet...no offense.... but when i watch the boy trying to wrestle it's just...mmmh ....patethic...
There's no man in Earth strong enough to hold a Wagner Drive!!
Originally posted by dMrHmmmm, I'm not sure if the high head ones at Sky are making us pay for this one over here yet.
If they are then I'm torn.
I'm pretty sure that we won't have to pay for it. The one's that were on Sky Box Office last year, and so far this year, are the Rumble, Backlash, Vengeance and Armageddon (the PPVs that Channel 4 had for a couple of years)
Originally posted by OMEGAYou know, when thinking of a ten-man tag main event for SmackDown, Hardcore Holly, Acolytes, Matt Morgan, Nathan Jones, & Big Show IMMEIDIATLEY spring to my mind too.
For any wrestlers that are extremely over, but have an average build or smaller: This type of booking should tell you something.
You are so right, I look at it like this. If you have the size and your big, you have every opportunity to show if you are a failure... But if you are not of that bodytype, you have to keep proving yourself everytime out without slipping.
It's not only wrestling, that bias happens in other sports too... But it's obviously there in Vince & Co. mind
As for the Raw 10-person tag you probably right dmr with Batista and HBK going on each side.
But I had something else in mind, the kept saying 10-person and 10 superstars. I was thinking they add a woman on each side and make it intergender. Trish on the face side, umm Victoria (I guess) on the heel side... You can do the switch either way on this. (1)Trish-heel by turning on her team and joining Jericho. or (2)Jericho-face by protecting Trish from the heel teammates and costing Team Bischoff the match.
3.7 is a Real strong opening hour for Raw (just 0.1 off of last weeks 3.8 first hour). The problem is there was no second hour spike at all... Even with just a usual 0.3 second hour raise Raw would have had a great number being just shy of 4.0. 0.
