Well, WWE’s hype machine has managed to hit a new low and caused the majority of people to be ready to skip a free PPV this weekend. So that’s pretty impressive.
As a part of their desperation marketing of the WWE Network last month, Vince McMahon himself emerged from what can only be assumed to be Howard Hughes-like seclusion to announce that all of November would be free for new subscribers. For the first time ever, this would mean that the annual Survivor Series show would be free for anyone trying the Network for the first time. You’d think that this would stir them to put on a blowaway show to hook new viewers, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. So with that in mind, here’s the thrilling lineup that is being presented this Sunday, along with my own expert picks, crafted with almost as much care and attention as the writers of the show use.
Team Authority (Seth Rollins / Kane / Mark Henry / Rusev / Luke Harper) v. Team Cena (John Cena / Dolph Ziggler / Big Show / Ryback / Erick Rowan)
