Survivor Series™ 2005 Report

Event Date: November 27, 2005

Location:  Detroit, Michigan
Arena:  Joe Louis Arena

This Pay-Per-View was a Co-production between RAW and SmackDown

Match Number One - The First Match In The Best Of Seven Series To Determine The Undisputed United States Champion.  Chris Benoit Vs. Booker T. with Sharmell in his corner.  This match was the opening match for the Survivor Series.  It was very good.  The ending saw Chris Benoit attempting to hit the "headbutt" off the top rope, however he missed.  Then Booker T. rolled Benoit up, Booker’s feet ended up on the ropes with Sharmell holding on in order for Booker to pick up the pin-fall victory in this match to give Booker T. a 1-0 advantage in the best of Seven Series.

Match Number Two - An Inter-promotional Match between RAW and SmackDown.  WWE Women’s Championship:  WWE Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus (RAW) Vs. Melina (SmackDown).  This match was good.  The ending saw Trish hit the Stratusfaction off the top rope to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain her Championship.

Match Number Three - Last Man Standing. Intercontinental Champion, Ric Flair Vs. Triple H.  The rule for this match was, the first Superstar to not answer the 10 count loses the match.  This was a very good match.  The ending saw Triple H hit the Pedigree on Ric Flair; but it didn't work.  He then followed up with a Second Pedigree, then a third, none of which worked.  Triple H then went under the ring and found a sledgehammer and hit Flair on top of his head; in which he could not answer the 10 count.  As a result, Triple H won this match.  Afterwards, Edge came out and announced that there would be a new interview segment called the "Cutting Edge" and Lita would be his co-host.  Then he acknowledged a Detroit Tiger who was at the Survivor Series, Detroit Tigers, Designated Hitter, Dmitri Young.  Edge started to talk trash about Baseball and that some baseball players take steroids.

Match Number Four - WWE Championship.  WWE Champion, John Cena Vs. Kurt Angle, with Daivari as the special Guest Referee for this match.  This match was all right.  The fans started to boo Cena a lot in this match and was very loud with a “Cena sucks Cena sucks” chant.  For the most part, the fans favored Angle.  Daivari, during the match was taken out by Cena.  Another referee came in to replace Daivari, however Angle took him out.  Then another referee came in to replace the referee who was taken out by Angle; in which Cena took him out.  Finally, a SmackDown referee came down to finish the match.  The ending came when Daivari got back into the ring and Cena gave him a DDT.  Cena followed up with a FU to Angle to pick up the pin-fall victory and retain his Championship.

Match Number Five - An Inter-promotional Match between RAW and SmackDown.  Eric Bischoff, General Manager of RAW Vs. Theodore Long, General Manager of SmackDown.  This was an all right match if you could call it that.  The ending saw the Boogeyman enter the ring and hit a "Pump-Handle Slam" on Eric Bischoff to help Theodore Long pick up the pin-fall victory.

Match Number Six - The Main Event.  RAW Vs. SmackDown - 10-Man Survivor Series Elimination Match.  Team RAW - Team Captain Shawn Michaels, Carlito, The “Masterpiece” Chris Masters and the World Tag Team Champions Kane and the Big Show Vs. Team SmackDown - Team Captain World Heavyweight Champion Batista, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL) and Bobby Lashley.  This match was all right.  The following are the eliminations that occurred in this elimination match.

First, Bobby Lashley was eliminated when Kane hit a "choke slam" on Lashley; then Shawn Michaels scored the pin-fall to eliminate Bobby Lashley from the match.

Next was Kane where Rey Mysterio hit the 619 on Kane and then Batista followed it up with a "spinebuster" to pick up the pin-fall and the elimination for his team.

Next was Batista where Kane, who had not left to return to the dressing room, helped The Big Show when they delivered a "double choke slam" in which it led to The Big Show picking up the pin-fall and the elimination for his team.

Next was The Big Show where Rey Mysterio hit the 619, followed it up with the "clothesline from hell" by JBL, and the "RKO".  Rey Mysterio ended up eliminating The Big Show when he hit a "seated senton" in order to pick up the pin-fall victory for his team.

Next was Carlito where JBL hit the "clothesline from hell" to pick up the pin-fall and the elimination for his team.

Next was Chris Masters.  Rey Mysterio hit the 619 and then followed it up with the "springboard leg drop" in order to pick up the pin-fall and the elimination for his team.  Next was Rey Mysterio where Shawn Michaels had hit Mysterio with the "sweet chin music" to pick up the pin-fall and the elimination. 

Next was JBL where Shawn Michaels hit the "sweet chin music" again to pick up the pin-fall and the elimination.

Finally it came down to Shawn Michaels for his team and Randy Orton for his team.  JBL, for some reason, who was still at ringside picked up a steel chair and was going to hit Shawn Michaels with it, however he missed and received a second "sweet chin music" from Michaels, and when he turned around Randy Orton had hit the RKO to pick up the pin-fall victory.  This resulted in team SmackDown winning the 10-Man Survivor Series Elimination Match. 

After the match was over the Undertaker made his WWE return at the Survivor Series before the Pay-Per-View ended.

Some additional comments regarding the Survivor Series. 

I am not sure what the point was to have Edge come out and bash Baseball and some of their Players for taking steroids, because this past week Vince McMahon decided to introduce a drug test policy for his Company, so I don’t understand their reasoning for this.

There was no announcement of how many fans were in attendance for this Pay-Per-View; I can only assume that this Pay-Per-View was not a sell out. 

I was not happy with the WWE Championship Match.  I hope real soon the WWE decides to have John Cena drop the belt to someone else.  Tonight at the Survivor Series, I thought the fans sent a loud message to the WWE when they booed Cena and started the "Cena sucks" chants.  In my opinion, the WWE needs to take the Championship off him and they also need to turn him heel. 

I really enjoyed the Ric Flair and Triple H, Last Man Standing match.  I think this match could be considered as a "Match Of The Year Contender".
