We are taking a look at the good and bad going into this Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series Pay Per View. If you the first two parts of this preview check out the links below.
Part 1 / Part 2
PRO : WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater (c) vs. Santino Marella & Valdimir Kozlov
The WWE Tag Team Championships get to shine here, but the match gets the ‘Pro’ nod simply because the the titles need the rub. Gabriel and Slater won the titles in match where someone literally laid down for them, so they need to win here to insure their legit champs. Yet the lovability of the comedy duo of the Moscow Mauler with the court jester of the WWE in Kozlov and Marella is high. Fans will be rooting for Marella and Kozlov, but expect the Nexus to walk out with the Bronze Belts. This match will be early on the show, and will likely be short.
PRO: INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Dolph Ziggler (C) vs. Kaval
The NXT Season 2 winner, Kaval cashed in his title shot opportunity this week on Smackdown. In the video linked on the left side of the page, Kaval calls out Ziggler and after beat him clean in a singles match. Ziggler whose been a roll after putting on a stand out series of matches against United States Champion Daniel Bryan, should be on point to deliver another strong performance. Kaval who previously wrestled as Senchi in TNA Wrestling, is obviously the underdog here. And wrestling match tells us after a big win on TV this week, that he is likely to lose this Sunday. Expect the unexpected, Kaval leaves this match as the new Intercontinental Champion.
CON: the three man commentary team of Jerry “the King” Lawler, Michael Cole, and Matt Striker.
As it has been on the past few months on WWE Pay Per View, we will get a three man commentary team. And as it has been for the past few months, we will get all three commentators bickering like hens with each other. This hen house with headsets on will distract a lot of fans, who paid good money to watch the show. Let’s hope they can keep the arguing and name-calling to a minimum and let the in-ring action do the real ‘talking’.
CON: A BAD SHOW OVERALL THIS SUNDAY
WWE needs to deliver a great show top to bottom. The Road to Wrestlemania is starting soon, so the momentum needs to be there coming out of this show. PPV buy numbers are down because fans are feeling let down by what WWE is putting out there on PPV each month. WWE is capable of giving them goods, and this show has a very good chance to be a good one.
