WWE Survivor Series 2012 Reaction

WWE Survivor Series 2012By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

It seems as if the internet may have bursted at the conclusion of last night’s World Title match.

In case you’re curious, three men- Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns- attacked Ryback ruthlessly, similar to Nexus’ original debut and powerbombed him through the announce table.

CM Punk picked up the scraps, retained his Title and today marks the one-year point of his reign.

Rollins, Ambrose and Reigns are all familiar to NXT viewers and how WWE will have them explain their actions should make for good television.

It’s fortunate that there was this to boil over from because besides for a few shiny spots, this was a mostly forgettable show.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2012 Reaction

WWE Hell In A Cell 2012

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Hell in a Cell will be best remembered as the night Ryback got screwed by the referee.

Also shockingly enough, it will be remembered for Sheamus and The Big Show.

The rest wasn’t all that special despite some quality matches.

There are only three weeks until Survivor Series (as opposed to Hell in a Cell’s six-week build), so things will pick up fast.

When Hell in a cell was said and done, it wasn’t as newsworthy as you’d expect, but some matches delivered.

Finding Demon King

– The opening video made it apparent Raw’s biggest storylines were that of the quarrel between WWE United States Champion Rusev and Roman Reigns as we saw last week when Reigns ruined a “Celebration Of Love” and Lana ended up covered in cake. Also seen was Seth Rollins’ new quest to find out who his SummerSlam opponent Finn Balor really was. Alrighty then.

A Whole New Reigns

– Coming off TLC’s well-done closing angle where Roman Reigns snapped Brock Lesnar style and injured his boss Triple H after getting screwed over again by The League Of Nations helping WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus retain in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match, we were eager to see how The Authority would go about likely firing Reigns even though we knew that’d never actually happen. As for the video, it sold Reigns’ snap perfectly with the close-ups and chair shot sound effects.

Hee Haw

– The opening video highlighted the newsworthy Survivor Series finish, when WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase on Roman Reigns, who’d just beaten Dean Ambrose in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament Finals and more specifically, Speared Triple H seemingly for no reason when the guy came out to congratulate him and offer his hand. Either way, Red Rooster’s the new Champion and Reigns was laid out and left in a heap of confetti-stricken grief.

Wyatt Noise

– We started with Zeb Colter/WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio cutting a promo onstage, as they addressed the nature of their working border union, or Petoria or something. Colter accused the crowd of being haters. They might as well call it Amexica. Well, that promo was ultimately pointless. The following match between Del Rio and Neville was competitive and lengthy as we saw Del Rio try to ground the high-flyer, while Neville fought back valiantly. The spike-rana spot was tough as it looked like Del Rio landed right on his head. Del Rio’s new finisher takes too long to set up but was boldly put over as a deciding factor. Del Rio heeled it up a little bit more by attacking Neville post-match, setting up Jack Swagger’s save. Boom. Logic.

Ambrose Country 

– The Roman Reigns-Bo Dallas match was an obvious squash the moment Bo’s music hit. Dallas came out cutting an insulting promo that focused on Reigns coming up short against Bray Wyatt and that he didn’t survive Suplex City like he did. Let’s commence the whipping. To their credit, commentary talked up the dangers of the Hell In A Cell match, using it to pinpoint that Reigns’ own cousin Rikishi was “never the same after his HIAC match.” Hmm. There was more to that than just the HIAC, but we digress. This was quickly over not long after with a swift Superman Punch/Spear combo. Oh now we’ve got another Reigns promo. Oy. We gathered that Wyatt’s eyes are the depth of hell and Reigns is bringing the fight because he was riding straight into hell. A Wyatt response too? He mentioned that he’d deliver a prophecy on Raw. Guess we’ll see what that’s all about then. Standard stuff.

Believe That It Ain’t Over…

– The opening video highlighted Corporate/Demon Kane getting into WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins’ head and literally dragging him into hell. Strange we didn’t see anything from Smackdown that happened with the feud. Guess Rollins got out of hell okay?

Fair Warning 

– The Wyatt Family promo was your usual “evil sermon” from Bray, as he tried to cast doubt upon the Roman Reigns/Dean Ambrose team based on their blinding loyalty and intelligence. He gave a fair warning and reminded us of how they took out Randy Orton on Raw. It also served as a fair warning to Jimmy Uso, who was teaming with both guys to take on The New Day later in the show. This was actually a Wyatt promo with purpose and wasn’t rambling and empty threats like we’ve all come to know Wyatt for.
