WWE Survivor Series 2012: 5 Other Possible Traditional 5-on-5 Matches

I'm a big fan of the Survivor Series, especially when WWE loads the pay-per-view with traditional Survivor Series rules elimination matches.

I still contend that Survivor Series 1990 was the best format of all time, which included five 4-on-4 elimination matches. All of the survivors moved on to the Ultimate Survivor main event, all of the faces vs. all of the heels.

I was glad to see that WWE already pegged a traditional match as the main event of November's pay-per-view. You have to expect that it will add more traditional matches to the card. They could go so far as to have all of the matches as such, which is how the PPV always was until 1991.

Using the current WWE roster (and possibly borrowing from NXT for one match), I have come up with five additional Survivor Series elimination matches it could add to the card. Keep in mind, almost every match has to feature some lower-card wrestlers, since five more elimination matches means 50 more wrestlers total.

Building those teams through storylines on Raw, SmackDown and Main Event could be fun, but with only three weeks left, there may not be time for that. I've always thought that it could be interesting to have the GMs name the captains, then put them in charge of picking teams.

Imagine guys sitting around doing a fantasy football draft. It could be a bit like that, with the captains selecting their teammates—a process that could add some drama all on its own. With a three-hour Raw, I think WWE could take care of that in one episode.

Without further ado, here are five additional Survivor Series elimination matches it could add to one of the original "Big Four" WWE PPVs.
