The problem with Survivor Series is that even when it was one of the four PPVs, it always performed significantly worse than the Rumble and Summerslam. They put it down to the 8-man tag format, which is why they started to change it in the early 90s with the Undertaker/Hogan and Hart/Michaels singles matches.

Back then, it was interesting to see people team up who you hadn't seen before (Ultimate Warrior, Kerry Von Erich and the Legion of Doom always stands out to me, as it was four of the biggest stars from different promotions). These days, it's impossible to get excited about watching anyone in the same way.

Is this an all time low for the WWE product?

The whole things is just awful.

Even getting a bit tired of Punk now.

Watched this weeks Raw nothing special however I am interested in where they are going to take The Shield (Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns) storyline hope it doesn't fizzle out like the Nexus storyline.

A match I enjoyed however was the Sheamus vs Antonio Cesaro some good back and forth and false finishes I wish most of the matches were like this one.

CM Punk injured and out of TLC.

I was looking forward to see how is going to manage to keep the strap yet again!

Punk has said on many occasions he isn't fan of ladder matches too many chances of getting badly injured. One of the reasons why he said he'll never do a MITB match again.

Was hearing earlier on that it's a torn meniscus which can apparently take 2-3 months to heal properly??

Also the 'main event' will now be Hell No and Ryback vs The Shield

CM Punk is rarely injured isn't he? Guess he's just hoping to be fit around Rumble time for The Rock.

Thought his feud with Ryback was pretty lame anyway.

Ryback was only in the picture as John Cena was hurt and couldn't compete.

TLC: Thought it was a good PPV, especially the TLC match, the Shield look impressive.

RAW:

Saw the WWE Attitude DVD.

Was very disappointed. Seemed very dis-jointed and used a lot of old intvs.
Can't recommend it.

Been really enjoying all load of the ECW additions to the Netflix US catalogue. Crap load of matches featured via the various shows. ECW Unreleased is a really good one with some great match selections.
