Tonight, from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, WWE presents the 26th annual Survivor Series. The Thanksgiving tradition and last major pay-per-view of 2012 has many important matches with implications that will weigh heavy.
As we all turn towards the holiday season, Survivor Series marks the unofficial start of WrestleMania season in WWE. Keep in mind what superstars will be on the winning end at the end of 2012, because their fortunes will likely continue in 2013.
At Survivor Series, a newly-formed trio of rock band lovers take on two superstars that set the Internet on fire to set the tone. On the main card, an arrogant European holding a title bearing the name of the United States looks to fend off a former holder of that title and keep his reign alive. A tale of two Divas that has been written months earlier finally sees the two face one another on pay-per-view. A hardcore legend's hand-picked team of five superstars continues the Survivor Series tradition by taking on a Show-Off and four other men he will lead.
In the two world title matches, a colossal man that has climbed back to the top of the mountain looks to keep a tough and resilient ex-champion from cutting his title reign short. In the main event, a man who claims to be the best and has reigned supreme for one day short of an entire year looks to keep his title even longer by outlasting a hungry up-and-comer and his storied rival in a three-way dance.
