So Survivor Series is just around the corner, and I got to thinking the other day: "Didn't we see the Survivor Series match at Bragging Rights?" Team Raw vs. Team Smackdown, with Smackdown coming out on top because of Big Show's help.
I remember watching the very first Survivor Series, where all the matches were tag team elimination matches, with a title match here and there. Lately, you might have one elimination match every second or third Survivor Series.
With the Raw vs. Smackdown at Bragging Rights, I have the feeling that if we see any elimination matches soon, it will be mid/upper carders that will set up the next few month's feuds.
Why not use the creative team to establish major feuds where maybe one match establishes the last two competitors in the ring become No. 1 contenders for the respective title?
Betrayal in another match to turn a face heel, and vice versa. This could be where Jerishow break down as Jericho and Show would be the last two men in, and one betrays the other for the win.
Another scenario could be the continuing saga of DiBiase Jr's face turn on Orton's Legacy.
You could also do an elimination lumberjack match, where as the participants are eliminated they stay outside the ring, and are lumberjacks for the remainder of the match.
You could have a match where as you get eliminated you have an automatic drawing for a Royal Rumble number, where the longer you last, the better the number you get.
For the next two months, you could have feuds for the lower numbers feuding for the better numbers.
They could even throw in a "As you get pinned, you move to the person who pinned you's Brand" match." This way we have two roster shakeups a year instead of one.
There are endless possibilities for matches, as long as they don't throw in the elimination chamber as there's a whole PPV coming up devoted to it.
As always I welcome any comments on the article, and until next time, I'm closing the kitchen for today.
