One can only hope that after last night, the powers that be realize the best built program for SS is Becky/Ronda and it's not even close. Becky is the MVP of WWE right now and Ronda is the biggest star. None of the other title vs. title matches nor the elimination matches have the juice (though I really like this card on paper). Main event or bust.

Haven't really watched any WWE in months but have to say both of the weekends cards have me pumped. Should be a great weekend of action

People laugh at the tag line "The only night Raw and Smackdown collide" but there is something to be said for these matches being non-canon with regard to each brand. Now, I'm sure we'll see some storylines from each brand and even some new ones bleed into the matches, but I like all the champion matches, the cruiserweight match and am psyched to see a tag team survivor series match for the first time in years.

While it's a shame that she got hurt, Becky Lynch did a great job getting over in questionable circumstances. She took what she was given and ran with it. Also, Bryan/Lesnar is going to rule. I actually am excited for WWE!

No point being cynical this weekend. Potentially the weekend of the year in US wrestling

Charlotte and Ronda Rousey was fucking awesome. Angle and all.
Daniel Bryan and Bork Lesnar was fucking awesome. Could've recaptured Daniel Bryan's stardom with a win there, IMO.

The winning combination for WWE might just be to let everyone stiff the ever loving shit out of each other. Some WWE THE REBORN needs to happen.

I don't understand the booking of 6-1 RAW winning at Survivor Series. RAW is better? Cool. Why should I watch Smackdown?

The funny part is they didn't even give Smackdown the 1 did they? They kept showing the graphic as 0 so it was like they weren't counting the pre-show match. Basically they said the pre-show doesn't matter.

I can only suspect that this is going to lead to a redemption story where Smackdown eventually overtakes RAW. If it doesn't, then I don't really get the point of just putting all the RAW guys over.

Survivor Series -

Women’s Survivor Series - **
Rollins v Nakamura - ***3/4
The Bar v A.O.P - **
Buddy Murphy v Mustafa Ali - ****1/4
Men’s Survivor Series - ***
Charlotte Flair v Ronda Rousey - ****1/2

Great fucking show! Rousey is soooooo good for how long she has been doing this

Charlotte Flair...best in-ring resume of all main roster members in 2018? Asuka at Mania, Becky at Evolution, and Ronda at Survivor Series matches are three of my - probably - top five matches of the main roster all year?

Hot take? Cold take?

How do those 3 matches compare to Sasha’s 3 MOTYC Takeover gems from 2015?

I'd put Rollins above her, but her peaks are higher. She had a lot of meandering and bad stuff post Mania until Summerslam, so if you value consistency over top moments, it can't be her. If peaks matter more, a case can certainly be made.

Charlotte's best match probably is on the level/slightly worse than Sasha's match with Becky (which are below the two Bayley matches).
