So, like my topic heading says, I was ringside for this one, and I must say I wasn't all that impressed. I try to catch the WWE live anytime they hit Dallas, Tx (my hometown)and this was not one of the better shows I have seen. I have seen both Raw and Smackdown live several times, but this was my first live pay-per-view, and I was psyched because I thought surely it would be a HUGE show, considering it was pay-per-view and all, but in my honest opinion, it was just average. I have been to several RAW tapings that were far better than this particular Survivor Series.
The buried alive match sucked, and the ambulance match was just OK, but it was kind of neat to see the ambulance and the bulldozer sitting inside of The American Airlines Center, and seeing the wrestlers work off of them.
The rest of the matches were so-so, except for Shaun Michaels performance....that was really good, and he dropped a lot of blood that night. Come to think of it, Vince dropped quite a bit of blood as well, but not as much as Shaun.
I knew right off the bat that Mav's owner Cuban was going to be involved, because we spotted him right away before the show even started walking around talking to fans, so that was no surprise.
I was kind of surprised by Austin's little goodbye speech, but let's be real, how many times has he quit and came back? It was really nothing new, but he seemed to be speaking from the heart, and I could be mistaken, but we were sitting ringside, and I could have sworn at one point I saw a few tears from him before he broke out the beer.
Other than a few decent moments there was really nothing memorable about this pay-per-view for me, I would give it a 5 out of 10....just mediocre. It also didn't help that at the time there were not any really strong story lines going on, nothing to write home about, if you will.
But having said all of that, I still strongly suggest that if anyone ever has the chance to see the WWE live, go for it, it truly is an awesome spectacle to witness live!!!
