Then in a battle of tag team champions, the Authors of Pain managed to upset The Bar after manager Drake Maverick distracted the team by appearing to wet himself while Big Show had him in a chokehold.
Naturally, some of the biggest matches in Survivor Series history have been of the traditional "Survivor Series" variety, but there are many other iconic singles matches that define the November classic.
Le'Veon Bell not reporting to Steelers, sitting out season
Up until late last week, the Steelers were bracing for the return of Bell, who played basketball at a local LA Fitness last week. Bell's replacement, James Conner , is third in the National Football League in rushing yards (771) and rushing touchdowns (10).
Survivor Series 2011 (yes, it's an odd-numbered year, I know) would mark the most recent instance of WWE holding a PPV inside the Garden. Which year wasn't there an elimination match? Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley also made it out of the match without getting pinned. Much like past year, the fight card has seen multiple changes, the first of which was Charlotte replacing Smackdown Women's Champion Becky Lynch for a fight against Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey after Lynch was medically not cleared to take part in the fight. After almost 15 minutes, Flair appeared to snap when she pulled out a kendo stick and began wailing on Rousey to cause a disqualification.
Daniel Bryan's first assignment since he recaptured the WWE championship from AJ Styles is the small matter of a one-on-one showdown with the Beast, Brock Lesnar. The dramatic finish had Bryan trapping Lesnar in the Yes Lock before Lesnar quickly counter it into a F-5. Like we saw earlier this week on Twitter, WWE's taking a real life injury and real life bad timing and turning them into glorious, glorious kayfabe. The Intercontinental Champion will go one-on-one with the United States Champion, and not even Seth Rollins (in kayfabe, of course) cares about this match.
