Ruthless Roundtable: Survivor Series 2011


We are back with another round of predictions, this time for the 25th anniversary of Survivor Series, with the main event involving The Rock!

I guess I should say it now, but I will be at Survivor Series, and dispite the fact that we will be in the nose bleed section of the newly referbished Madison Square Garden, it should be a pretty good show. In 2011,  I never would have thought that I’d be going to see a WWE event featuring the in-ring return of The Rock!

The last time I saw The Rock was at a Raw show back in December of 2000 when the WWE was at Continental Airlines Arena (now known as The Izod Center) where he (Rock), Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker all came out and did their finishing moves on Mr. McMahon; this was right before Armageddon and the six man Hell in a Cell match. This was also the Raw where The Rock mocked all of the participants in the match in a pre-taped interview:

Below are the matches, as of this morning, for WWE Survivor Series 2011:

Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Eve
Lumberjill match for the WWE Divas Championship

Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. John Morrison
Singles match for the WWE US Championship

Team Barrett
(Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico & Dolph Ziggler)
vs.
Team Orton
(Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara)
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match

Mark Henry (c) vs. Big Show
Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship

Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk
Singles match for the WWE Championship

The Miz and R-Truth vs. John Cena and The Rock
Tag team match

Here are the Roundtable’s predictions below; agree or disagree, leave comments below:

Cos’ WWE Survivor Series 2011 Predictions:

Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Eve
Lumberjill match for the WWE Divas Championship

Starting with the least interesting match, I highly doubt the WWE will even start with this match. I, like many others call this one a bathroom break.

Winner and Still Divas Champion: Beth Pheonix

Beth Phoenix

Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. John Morrison
Singles match for the WWE US Championship

This one is the biggest surprise, for most of the month Zack Ryder (from Long Island, NY–not too far from The Garden) has been working on an on-line petition to get him a match at Survivor Series. I wouldn’t be surprised if Teddy Long adds Ryder at the actual event.

But, we’ll go with what we have right in front of us. I feel WWE is trying to keep Morrison in the company and may just give him the United States Championship (even though he is more than ready to be in the main event and by vying for the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship).

Winner and NEW United States Champion: John Morrison

John Morrison

Team Barrett
(Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico & Dolph Ziggler)
vs.
Team Orton
(Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara)
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match

I don’t really understand where this feud came from, I feel like they needed to get a whole bunch of people onto the card, I can actually see the WWE starting with this match, Orton’s “I hear voices” opening the Pay-Per-View…am I alone in thinking that?

Don’t really care about this match…

Winners: Team Barrett

Mark Henry (c) vs. Big Show
Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship

While I feel like Mark Henry has been on a role recently, I feel like this may be the last championship that the WWE will ever give The Big Show, and his first two WWE Championships were both won at Survivor Series (’99 and ’02–and thee ’02 PPV was at The Garden as well) I can see Show getting the World Heavyweight Championship, even for only the month and loosing it in a tables match next month at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

Winner and NEW World Heavyweight Champion: The Big Show

Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk
Singles match for the WWE Championship

I think that along with the main event Rock/Cena vs Awesome Truth, I feel that this is also a money match. These two have had great matches against each other this past summer and I feel that this will be a fantastic match. I feel like not putting the belt on Punk now would be a mistake, I feel like the WWE should back the Punk horse 100% and milk it all the way until Wrestlemania.

Winner and NEW WWE Champion: CM Punk

The Miz and R-Truth vs. John Cena and The Rock
Tag team match

Here is the main event. I don’t think there is much to the actual match, I have a feeling it’ll be a pretty good tag team match, I feel like the WWE should pull the trigger on Awesome Truth and give them the WWE Tag Team Championship from Air Boom and we’ll have to wait until next month to see if they even do that. But I have a feeling shenanigans will occur and one of the two faces (Cena and Rock) will turn on each other. Do I think it would be a heel turn? No. I just have a feeling that one will fall to Awesome Truth and we’ll leave the arena with one of them lying in the middle of the ring.

Winners: Awesome Truth (The Miz and R-Truth)

Possible suprise appereances:

Kevin Nash

Triple H

The Undertaker

Mother Brain’s WWE Survivor Series 2011 Predictions


Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Eve
Lumberjill match for the WWE Divas Championship

I hate to say it but if there’s one potential title change that night, it could well be this one. Now that the match is full of lumberjills, I can see most of all of them ganging up on Beth and Natalya, costing Beth the match and making Eve the new Divas champ.

Winner and new Divas champion: Eve

Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. John Morrison
Singles match for the WWE US Championship

I’m still very pissed off over Zack Ryder being bumped off the match due to backstage politics; however, the fact that it’s worked into the storyline and it is MSG could bring him back into the fold. But if it does go down as currently advertised, there’s no way in hell Morrison will win the title if he’s not renewing his contract afterwords.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

Dolph Ziggler


Team Barrett
(Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico & Dolph Ziggler)
vs.
Team Orton
(Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara)
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match

If this is definitely the only traditional Survivor Series match on the card, expect to see Orton end up as sole survivor and he’ll beat Cody Rhodes to pull it off.

Winner: Team Orton

Mark Henry (c) vs. Big Show
Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship

Even with the World’s Strongest Man’s push as a monster heel in the past few months, feuding with Big Show is just making his momentum go stale. Yeah they destroyed the ring at the last PPV but that’s not anything new. Let the champ turn his attention back to Sheamus who has more of a chance of carrying Smackdown at this point.

Winner: Mark Henry

Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk
Singles match for the WWE Championship

What I want to see happen is what I think everyone wants to see: CM Punk walks out of MSG as the WWE Champion. But feels too soon to have that happen and the conspiracy storyline will only continue on following this event. As long as Johnny Ace himself is in charge, expect to see every possible swerve in the book as well as another Kevin Nash run-in to spoil Punk’s moment again.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio

The Miz and R-Truth vs. John Cena and The Rock
Tag team match

The winning team should be fairly obvious. The real question is who walks out the heel when it’s over? I’m going to be bold and say for a mediocre Survivor Series card at MSG, a major shocking moment will go down at it will be the heel turn of John Cena. I won’t explain more than that. Just a hunch.

Winners: John Cena and The Rock

Smark Central’s WWE Survivor Series 2011 Predictions

 
Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Eve
Singles match for the WWE Divas Championship

What I want to see: Ugh.
This Division is probably the worst thing going right now.  NONE of the face divas are worthy of being champion and that’s why Beth needs to keep it

What will happen: Beth will win so the next bimbo in line can get a shot

United States Championship
Dolph Ziggler Vs John Morrison

What I want to see: I would love it if Ryder got added on to make it a triple threat or Morrison to get replaced somehow.  Anything else, will get a total non-reaction from me.

What will happen: I could see this being Morrrison’s curtain call with the company since neither side is really interested in keeping him
around so he probably loses (if he even gets to the ring).  If Ryder gets involved and doesn’t win the title, I will extremely pissed.

Dolph Ziggler

Team Barrett
(Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico & Dolph Ziggler)
vs.
Team Orton
(Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara)
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match

What I want to see: Every year, I used to come out and say “I think there should be more of these matches”, but after the last few years of lackluster promotion or effort put into them, maybe it’s better to stick with the one.  As far as a winner, I think the heels need this match a lot more than the faces do.

What will happen: After losing to Mark Henry two PPVs in a row, Orton has gone back to doing his best John Cena impersonation and has been winning everything.  I don’t expect that to change come Sunday.

Mark Henry (c) vs. Big Show
Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship

What I want to see: I can’t believe I’m going to say these words, but I want Mark Henry to keep the belt.  I’m still not his biggest fan, but I don’t like Show at all and if I have to pick between the two, I pick Henry

What will happen: Big Show has won both of his WWE title’s at Survivor Series with the 2nd one occurring at MSG in 2002 (I should know, I was there).  I have a weird feeling WWE might do it again just so Show can “get his revenge”.
Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk
Singles match for the WWE ChampionshipWhat I want to see: I always want Punk to win, but in this case I REALLY want to see him win.  I’m sorry, but I am totally over ADR.  He is so bland on the mic and boring to watch in the ring that it drives me nuts.  For a mid-carder his skills are fine, but he’s not worthy of being WWE champ.What will happen: I could see WWE dragging this feud out by letting “Berto” keep it for another PPV or two with Punk eventually grabbing it.

The Miz and R-Truth vs. John Cena and The Rock
Tag team matchWhat I want to see: In a dream World Cena would turn on Rock and go full heel, but it’s most likely not happening so if I can’t get that I’ll take Rock/Cena winning with Rock giving Cena a Rock bottom and a people’s elbow to end the show.What will happen: I’m not sure.  I could see Miz/Truth winning because Rock and Cena fight or I could see Rock and Cena kicking ass and winning.  All I know is, it will be entertaining and the crowd is going to go nuts.
