WWE: What You Missed on the 4 Other Shows & Their Impact on Survivor Series 2012

As WWE booked the final week of programming before hosting one of their "Big Four" in Indianapolis, the shows aside from Raw and SmackDown could very easily have been used to build interest in that pay-per-view.

Unfortunately, the only way NXT, Main Event, Superstars and Saturday Morning Slam furthered the build for Survivor Series 2012 was an injury to Cody Rhodes and enough Raw Rebounds and SmackDown replays to complete an entire show.

There is so much more they could have done, even to build lower-card matches like the Divas Championship or 3MB's pre-PPV match.

Instead, they reminded us time and time again of the AJ Scandal and the WWE Championship match. How many people watching these four shows don't already know about the most important feuds and storylines in the company?

My "notes" version of all four shows is below.

If it piques your interest enough to read on, the slideshow breaks down the shows individually, segment by segment, complete with my questions and predictions.

 

Notes

On NXT, The Ascension got a solid victory over the team of Yoshi Tatsu and Percy Watson, further establishing their dominance among the NXT tag teams. Corey Graves made Oliver Gray tap out in the second match.

Camacho tried to cash in on Vickie Guerrero's $5000 bounty on Big E. Langston's head, but Langston thwarted the attempt easily. Layla got a victory over Aksana, and Roman Reigns defeated Chase Donovan in less than three minutes.

In the main event, Jinder Mahal successfully defended his spot as the No. 1 contender for Seth Rollins' NXT Championship when he defeated Bo Dallas. We didn't get to see my favorite NXT male (Kassius Ohno) or female (Paige).

On Main Event, Team Hell No successfully defended the WWE Tag Team Championship when they faced Team Rhodes Scholars, the match that resulted in Rhodes' injury.

Santino Marella received a quick victory over David Otunga, and The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler is set up for next week.

On Superstars, Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater defeated The Usos, and The Great Khali defeated JTG in under two minutes. The rest of the show was Raw Rebounds and Survivor Series promos.

On Saturday Morning Slam, R-Truth got a victory over William Regal, while Kofi Kingston defeated Zack Ryder in a friendly match. The Miz and R-Truth were the focus of two other segments, and we got a look back at some classic Survivor Series moments during the Video Vault segment.
