Fantasy Survivor Series Card #1
If you didn’t have a chance to listen to last week’s episode of That Wrestling Show, I made a fun announcement that for the next four Monday’s leading up to the Survivor Series I would create my own Survivor Series card. Each one will have a different theme.
For this first one, it is teams of five that will try to strive to survive. This card is very interesting for a number of reasons, one of them being some NXT wrestlers are used in this first card. Another reason being, in honor of the first ever Survivor Series there is an all women elimination match. So, let’s take a look at each match starting with the main event.
John Cena (Captain), Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (Captain), Big Show, Rusev, Bray Wyatt & Braun Strowman
The main event was pretty easy to create considering who the captains of the teams are. The wild cards in this match would have to be Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman. Could those two work with other people on the team, let alone be led by Seth Rollins? Plus, you have five new people into the main event of the Survivor Series compared to the two teams from last year’s event.
Ryback (Captain), Randy Orton, Neville, Sami Zayn & Cesaro vs. Kevin Owens (Captain), Stardust, Xavier Woods, Samoa Joe & Sheamus
Here is where I feel a lot of good talent could be used for this show. First off Kevin Owens is the team captain, he’s a fighter and he leads a team that can start-up a fight. Also, with Sami Zayn and Samoa Joe from NXT into the mix it can be very fun. Finally, and this might surprise people Xavier Woods is in the match. He can wrestle folks and he can be used twice in this show. The first time being this match and the second time at ringside for another match you’ll see in just a little bit.
Charlotte (Captain), Becky Lynch, Natalya, Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Bella (Captain), Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Paige & Naomi
Now the women’s match can be made very interesting. First, Paige is teaming with the Bella twins who she has hated for what feels like an eternity. Secondly, you have Bayley the NXT Women’s champion involved on a team led by Charlotte. Finally, Sasha Banks is on an opposing team against Naomi, her fellow Team B.A.D. member. It could lead to the separation of that faction, and unite the Four Horsewomen of wrestling together for one glorious night. To be honest, of the four matches made this was the most difficult to create.
Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley (Captains), Darren Young & Titus O’Neil, Kalisto & Sin Cara, Jimmy & Jey Uso and Enzo Amore & Colin Cassidy vs. Kofi Kingston & Big E (Captains), Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, Diego & Fernando, Viktor & Connor and Blake & Murphy
You take a look at this card and you say to yourself why are there so many men in this one match? It’s real simple, I’m putting the teams together and when one member of a team has been eliminated the whole team is gone. The selection of the two NXT tag teams was tough and leaving the Vaudevillians out of this match was tough but I think Enzo and Colin would be a great fit for the team led by the Dudley’s. Also, members of the Wyatt family come into play and they would very much be out for themselves. If given the right length of time, this match could be the show stealer.
Well that is the first of four Survivor Series fantasy cards. Did you like this card? Are their people on this card that you would switch and add another person to replace them? Leave me your comments in this article or leave me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next week, it’ll be teams of four that will be used with the current WWE roster. Will anybody that wasn’t on this card be used in the next one? You’ll have to check out next week to see.
