Wwe Survivor Series, Event: WWE Survivor Series Pay-Per-View Airdate: Sunday, November 20th, 2011 (Pay-Per-View) Location: Madison Square Garden in New York, New York “Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
Dark Match Result:
Santino Marella beat Jinder Mahal in a dark match prior to tonight’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
WWE Survivor Series Opener:
We open the show with a video package that highlights the main feuds heading into tonight, with a lot of time spent on the Cena/Rock vs. Awesome Truth match, of course.
The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to Survivor Series. The announcers hype some new kind of social network hub on WWE.com, and this leads directly into John Laurinaitis coming out. He lets the people know his exact title before saying tonight is his tenth anniversary here in WWE, on top of being the 25th anniversary of Survivor Series. This makes little sense as this leads us directly into the US Championship match. John Morrison is out first, getting a pretty weak reaction from the crowd.
WWE United States Championship
- Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. John Morrison
The bell rings and we’re ready to begin. The crowd is chanting that they want Ryder. Both men lock up and Dolph takes Morrison down to the mat and slaps at the back of his head before bailing to the outside to avoid Morrison’s ire. Ziggler heads back into the ring and we get another lock up. Both men try for hammerlocks before Morrison takes Ziggler down to the mat with an arm bar. Ziggler fights off Morrison and beats and stomps on him in the corner.
Winner and STILL US Champion: Dolph Ziggler
WWE Divas Championship
- Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Eve
The divas who are acting as Lumberjill’s make their way to the ring first, as a group. Eve is the first competitor to make her way out to the ring, to a bit of a reaction from the crowd. I haven’t said it yet, but I have to say MSG looks a lot different, and I kind of miss the old set up. It looks like any other arena now.
Beth Phoenix is out next with Natalya in tow, she gets a bit of a reaction too.
Winner and STILL WWE Divas Champion: Beth Phoenix
5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Match
- Team Orton (Randy Orton, Sheamus, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara) vs. Team Barrett (Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Hunico & Dolph Ziggler)
Wade Barrett is the first man from his team to make his way down to the ring. I can’t tell if it’s the new layout of the arena, or what, but this crowd seems pretty subdued for an NYC crowd. Jack Swagger is out next, and he too gets a pretty poor reaction.
Team Barrett wins
Survivors: Wade Barrett and Cody Rhodes
World Heavyweight Championship
- Mark Henry (c) vs. Big Show
We get formal ring introductions for both men, and we’re ready to kick things off.
We get a lock up and Show pushes Henry down to the mat right off the bat. Another lock up, and this time Henry shoves Show away, though he doesn’t fall to the mat. A third lock up and Show shoves Henry down to the mat. Henry bails to the outside.
Henry slowly makes his way back into the ring. Henry ducks the lock up and goes behind Show this time, but Show reverses and takes Henry down with a waist lock takedown. Show hits Henry with an arm drag (!), and this sends Henry bailing to the outside again.
Winner: Big Show
STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Mark Henry
- Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk
Ricardo Rodriguez is out first to introduce the WWE Champion. Del Rio comes out to the ring in a beautiful Aston Martin red convertible (not the most practical choice for NYC in November).
The crowd is chanting for Punk before Del Rio’s music even hits. Apparently, Punk has a personal ring announcer for the evening as well, WWE Hall of Famer, Howard Finkel. The Fink makes his way out from the back to a big pop from the crowd. The crowd is actually chanting for the Fink! Howard finally makes the announcement, and it’s amazing! Punk comes out to a huge pop from the crowd. Punk shakes hands and gives a little hug to Fink before heading down to the ring.
Winner and NEW WWE Champion: CM Punk
The Rock & John Cena vs. The Miz & R-Truth
Miz and Truth are, obviously, the first men to make their way out to the ring. Miz is nice enough to dedicate their entrance song to the NYC crowd, letting them know that the suck.
Cena is out next and he gets a hostile welcome to MSG. Cena stops to talk to the camera, saying the fans love him here in New York City.
Winner: John Cena and The Rock
After the match, Rock celebrates in the ring, posing in the corners. Cena applauds Rock as he makes his way toward the back. Rock calls for the crowd to quiet down, and his music to stop. He doesn’t look too happy with Cena clapping for him. Cena makes his way back into the ring. Cena poses on the turnbuckle, but gets nothing but heat for it. Cena comes back into the ring, and he and Rock have a few words.
