Match #1: Kevin Owens def. Dolph Ziggler – Qualification For The SmackDown Survivor Series Men’s Team

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In the first Qualifying Match of the night to determine who would represent Team SmackDown in the Traditional Survivor Series Match against Team Raw, the official ejected Robert Roode from ringside mid-match. And in the final moments, Kevin Owens overcame Dolph Ziggler by thwarting his opponent’s superkick and hitting the Stunner for the huge win. As a result, KO earned the right to represent his new brand against Raw and determine the Best of the Best at Survivor Series.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – These two kanukle-heads had a good ol’ romp around the block that led to a pregnancy scare th…whoops! I’m also making my video for my students who are schooling at home. They’re reading “Le Twink De La Koksukre”. Dolph and Kevin had another familiar bout that was mostly a series of linked moves, as opposed to a more cohesive wrestling match. One thing that can be said about this match is that it is very spirited, like a teenage girl that escapes her kidnapper’s basement. Bessie ain’t goin’ back to the cage, honey! Dolph just feels like he’s invincible at this point. Vince has buried Dolph in every way you can think of, but he always manages to survive these random losses. Fortunately, Kevin is a great name to lose to, because he’s a star already. If you like watching the fat guy in the gym kick the ass of the hottest guy in the joint because the fat guy has a little dinky, then get a load of this rubber-ducky!

Match #2: Bianca Belair def. Billie Kay and Natalya – Triple Threat Qualifying Match For A SmackDown Survivor Series Women’s Team Spot

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

One week after Bianca Belair made a dominant debut on SmackDown with an impressive victory over Zelina Vega, The EST of WWE reigned supreme over Natalya and Billie Kay when she hurled The Queen of Harts into the ring post and hit Kay with the K.O.D. to earn a place of the Women’s Survivor Series Team against Team Raw.

My Opinion: 2.3 out of 5 – These three fighters tried, but this came out about as exciting as my marriage to Glundy Zytouslaba. Hey! I wanted to be rich! Well, Bianca was a ball of…well, she was all over the place, but it was fun. That’s it…and she won!

Match #3: The Street Profits def. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After critiquing The New Day’s impression of them on Raw, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits declared their intention to overcome the Raw Tag Team Champions at Survivor Series. Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins then took on former titleholders Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro. Dawkins hit a superplex on The Artist, and Ford followed up with a gravity-defying frog splash for the win.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – Amber Heard is heard on a tape calling Johnny Depp a pussy…allegedly…and this match was okay! While not the most exciting match these two teams could wrestle against each other, these teams were able to make the match brisk and rough. Cesaro and Shinsuke should be doing so much more in the WWE right now, but at least they are getting on TV. Ford sold like crazy early on made his opponents look aggressive and mean, like a gypsy when they get caught stealing your wallet. Well, I didn’t actually watch this match, so don’t listen to anything I said.

Match #4: (Main Event) Jey Uso def. Daniel Bryan – Qualifying Match For The SmackDown Survivor Series Men’s Team

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In the second Survivor Series Qualifying Match of the night, Daniel Bryan battled a very game Jey Uso, with Roman Reigns stoically watching at ringside. And despite an incredible effort from the leader of the “Yes!” Movement, Uso would pick up the win, catching Bryan with a pair of fierce kicks out of nowhere before hitting the Uso Splash for the victory. When Reigns entered the ring and stared at him, Jey Uso repeatedly screamed “I understand now,” indeed falling in line as Reigns promised he would. This lit the fuse on Jey Uso’s vicious post-match beatdown on Bryan in order to prove to Reigns that he was with him.

My Opinion: 3.7 out of 5 – This was an excellent match between two people who were ready to steal the show. Jey won and should have. Hell, that’s some-thing to focus on for a minute. Jey Uso has beaten AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan in just a matter of weeks. What a turn-around for his singles career. Jey has been a top prospect for singles action for the last several years and this recent push has been just what he’s needed. Yet, Jey is also getting turned into Roman’s lackey (more on that at NOTN). You have Jey going hold for hold with one the best in Bryan and he’s just getting wasted as Roman’s acolyte? What a waste of a major star. Jey won this burst of red-hot adrenaline and he should be ready for the big time, but he’s gonna get put under his cousin’s foot to make some sort of angle stick. Anyway, Jey beat a major star in Bryan and I’m happy that the major star helped another shine brightly.

News Of The Night:

  1. Jey Uso turned heel and attacked Daniel Bryan in the name of Roman Reigns.
  2. Carmella is back, next week.
  3. Aalyah loves Murphy.

Final Verdict: 3/5

This was decent entertainment that had a fine finish, but one that was also a bit against itself, so to speak.
