I have it on in the background, streaming on the projector with no sound. Main focus is on the football game.

I just can't get into this at all. How do they let this happen for a "major" PPV?

I think I read somewhere this will be Del Rio's 16th televised championship match this year.

it's been very mediocre so far. They did make Reigns look strong and there was a Mark Henry return. Aside from that, I'm not sure I would have paid 9.99 for his PPV.

I can't stand this. Ambrose is obviously the gem in that group and he is getting pushed aside cause he is not a big dummy who can't talk. I'm beyond frustrated with this I would seriously consider not watching any more if I didn't have so much invested in the Rumble, and Wrestlemania.

I just sat back down at my laptop and saw the end of that segment. Did they just have Jonny Ace make his comeback in a promo skit with the comedy jobbers? (El torito, Santino, Fandango, R Truth?, etc)

Reigns is good in the ring. I have no problem with him receiving a push even if I like Ambrose more. I'd like to see a Langston/Ambrose program. That could be for the WWE championship down the road.

The Cena story line would have been much more interesting if ADR won at HIAC. I really like ADR.

They were doing some time killing stupid promo and he came in from the side. But like I said I had just sat back down and didn't catch much of it. I'm sure he's around all the time anyway, but he was a huge story and is a heat magnet, don't just plug him in some stupid comedy promo after all that time he's been away

Raw? I'm not sure I would have aired that match on WWE Main Event (no pun intended). The fact that the main event match was 11 minutes is embarrassing, not to mention the multiple "boring" chants that were going on.

NOTHING. I had the stream on one screen and was on LGP on the other + paying attention to the tv. I barely even looked at the match. I know we all complain a lot about it, but that was embarrassing for what the Survivor Series used to be, and is supposed to be.

I didn't have my volume on, but it looked like they semi-teased a Cena heel-turn there --- HHH/Stephanie looked content with Cena interrupting Orton's celebration and challenging him. it won't happen though. Cena will unify the titles.

Unifying the titles is a horrible terrible idea, unless they fix the status of the IC and US titles and make them important again. Right now, the WHC is treated as the clear secondary title, a way for mid carder to jump into a spot toward the end of the card and a launch pad to the WWE title. Much like the IC title used to be.

A Unified title leaves a huge void.

It seems like there was no plan to end this one. Vinnie Mac came out after they went off air. There was some silliness with Cena challenging him and HHH and Kane almost chokeslamming people. It sounds like a giant cluster ****.

From everything I've read, my goodness. Another abortion of a PPV. Apparently the "boring" and "Daniel Bryan" chants during the main event were deafening

I didn't hear the boring chants myself, but the other board that I was posting on said they were quite noticeable.

I remember back when this authority angle started there were rumors that Triple H/Stephanie would be the heels and Vice would swoop in in time to save WM. He's right on cue.

After tonight's Survivor Series pay-per-view went off the air, John Cena came down to challenge Randy Orton to a champion vs. champion match for the live crowd, but the Viper declined. Kane attempted to confront Cena, but Triple H called him off. This upset Kane, and Randy Orton had to get involved before he chokeslammed the WWE COO. Cena then took turns taunting the various members of The Authority, including Vince McMahon, who made his return in the dark off-camera segment, but they kept each other from getting into the ring against the world champion. John Cena thanked his hometown crowd and sent the TD Garden home happy.
