With WWE Survivor Series right around the corner, PWP’s Eron Ramadanov gives his thoughts and plans for the pay-per-view.
Usually, I’m not one to “fantasy book”, but I decided that I’d take an early look at WWE Survivor Series, coming up this November 22nd in Atlanta, GA. Obviously, with what happened at WWE Hell In A Cell, I’ll have some inspiration and ideas on how the pay-per-view will play out. During WWE HIAC, they played two vignettes introducing the theme for this pay-per-view, which is celebrating 25 years of the Undertaker. I found this odd; I can’t remember the last time WWE dedicated an entire pay-per-view to someone’s legacy.
With that being said, I’m all for it. If you didn’t know, I’m a huge mark for the Undertaker. He’s easily one of my favorite superstars of all time and continues to give me goosebumps whenever I see his iconic walk to the ring. So you probably know that I wasn’t too thrilled about the Undertaker losing to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 and I thought I would feel the same way about WWE Hell In A Cell, but I didn’t.
I found myself perfectly fine with the ending of this final encounter between these two legends. Firstly, because it had a decisive and clean finish, with a clear-cut winner. And we saw the Undertaker accept defeat when he pointed at Lesnar and nodded his head forward as a sense of acceptance toward his defeat. As Lesnar and Paul Heyman left ringside, we got a good moment with the Undertaker, where he rose one more time, as fans in the Staples Center showered him with, “Thank you, Taker!” chants. To say the least, it was an awesome moment and as a die-hard Taker fan, it was closure for the end of the streak and the end of his feud with Brock Lesnar.
But then, it happened…
Bray Wyatt and his family entered the arena, and everyone in attendance and at home knew exactly what was coming. The Wyatt Family back at full strength with Braun Strowman, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, being led by their self-promoted savoir took to the Undertaker with a brutal and intense beating. After that, the Wyatt Family raised the Undertaker above their heads and carried him out of the arena.
What does this mean? Well, obviously the feud between the Undertaker and Bray Wyatt isn’t over. But not only that, it appears like there will be so much more added to this already interesting feud, where chapter two will be written at Survivor Series.
So with that being said, let’s get into what we should expect at WWE Survivor Series: 25 years of the Undertaker.
