So, its seeming like we will be without a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match for the rest of 2014 and that WWE is concentrating much less on its monthly PPVs to drive sales on their own, while hoping the Network itself drives sales. For me, that is a perfect recipe for no dramatic booking in the short term and a true traditional Survivor Series with all elimination matches to keep everything in place.

So that being said, the challenge is to put together an entire card using the current active/uninjured roster in teams that at least somewhat make sense. Use of NXT guys is also on the board. Full booking of the matches isn't necessary, just put a card on paper. Bonus points for wacky 80s team names.

To help with the roster, I found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WWE_personnel

Well, if anything, trying to do this will show you how thin the roster really is, especially on the heel side. Here's what I got:

(* denotes Team Captains)

Pre-Show (NXT)
Adrian Neville*, Sami Zayn, Sin Cara, Kalisto
Vs
Tyler Breeze*, Tyson Kidd, Vaudevillains


The A-List
The Miz*, Damien Mizdow, Cesaro, Goldust, Stardust
Vs
Sheamus’s Slayers
Sheamus*, Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, The Usos


Team America
The Big Show*, Mark Henry*, Big E, Jack Swagger
Vs
The Crushers
Rusev*, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Fandango


Face Divas
Brie Bella, AJ Lee, Naomi, Natalya, Rosa
Vs
Heel Divas
Nikki Bella, Paige, Cameron, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae
(Like WWE Creative would bother with team names for the Divas)

The Wyatt Family
Bray Wyatt*, Eric Rowan, Luke Harper, The Ascension
Vs
The Rosebuds
Adam Rose*, The Bunny, The Great Khali, Los Matadores


The Authority
Triple H*, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Kane
Vs
The Fringe**
John Cena*, Dean Ambrose*, Slater-Gator
**Team personally selected by Triple H & Stephanie McMahon

Survivors’ Battle Royal for Royal Rumble WWE World Heavyweight Championship Shot
The Miz, Cesaro, The Big Show, Mark Henry, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, John Cena, Dean Ambrose

And, well, you know how it ends

I reserve the right to change this as we get closer to Survivor Series. Also, I'm leaving off the Divas match, because I can't figure out how to use the team name BRIE THE PEOPLE and I can't figure out who the heels and faces are supposed to be.

Pre-Show Opener: Special Four-on-Four Match
SLATER, GATOR, SON OF VADER
-Heath Slater (Captain)
-Titus O'Neil
-Jake "Baby Baby Bull" Carter
-Hornswoggle

vs.

TOR/BUS
-Adam Rose
-The Bunny (Darren Young)
-Diego
-El Torito

(Slater, Gator, Son of Vader win when Bull Dempsey, now with a Mantaur-esque gimmick, attacks Diego, leading to a Dempsey/Carter vs. Matadors feud.)

Match 1 Special Attraction Opening Match
(If Team Arrival wins, they get to appear weekly on Raw or Smackdown. If Team Departure wins, they don't get fired.)

vs.

ALLIES & AXEL (Honorary captain: Lana)

vs.

BEST FIVE BUSINESS

Match 4: The Punt Doubles vs. The Jobbers To The Stars
(Randy Orton becomes obsessed with his new viral stardom as a youtube/vine sensation and begins hanging out with other "real stars" like the Miz, Mizdow, Stardust and Goldust. They take on a collection of Champions who always lose non-title matches and also Rey, who is kicked in the head and never appears again.)
THE PUNT DOUBLES
-Randy Orton
-Miz
-Mizdow

-Stardust

vs.

JOBBERS TO THE STARS*

Match 5: SPECIAL MAIN EVENT - The Rock vs. The Dark Place

Team Dark Place

Match 6: EVEN MORE SPECIAL EVEN MORE MAIN EVENT BECAUSE JOHN CENA IS IN IT
(Cena vs. Ambrose heats back up when Ambrose decides to make ruining Cena's life his mission. Ambrose brings in DDP, because he always said "Scum!". Cena retaliates with his pal Bret Hart. Christian gets on after making a request for One Last Match that Cena agrees to fulfill, while Ambrose brings in re-debuting "Dirty Curty" Johnny Curtis, the only guy scummier than Ambrose. Cena recruits his pals the Usos, Ambrose counters by debuting Itami and Baylor so we can have "The Earth" part of his team name.)

SCUM OF THE EARTH

Two things I noticed:

The US and IC Champs are on a team of JTTS. This is not a criticism of you.

Would Mojo Rawley be able to get down a full-sized WWE PPV ramp without blowing up?
