There was a time in World Wrestling Entertainment where the pay-per-views weren't all styled around a gimmick match of some sort. In fact, it used to be that other than the Royal Rumble and King of the Ring, the only other one was Survivor Series, wherein multiple teams of four would compete in elimination matches for seemingly no purpose other than bragging rights. As time went on, the number of competitors upgraded to five but the reason for the teams essentially stayed the same. When its done right, the teams can have a legitimate reason to feud with each other and some actual stakes on the line. Other times, it can just be a haphazard mess.
This year, the traditional Survivor Series elimination match is somewhere in the middle of those two realms. Originally, we had a true feud going on with two team captains that were looking to teach the other a lesson. The next week, it all was erased and turned into an unorganized but still interesting lineup.
There may not be anything on the line in terms of titles or power positions in the company, but each superstar does have something to gain or lose by being in this match. Let's break down each member of Team Foley and Team Ziggler and see where they stand and where they can go from here.
