Fantasy Warfare just got real. No, it didn't. Stop lying. This WWE PPV was very unrealistic, yet it was fun to watch. It's time to review Survivor Series 2016, you're next!

Ever since the second brand extension of the WWE in July 2016, 'Raw" and 'Smackdown' has been going their own things. For the most part, it was a success, as each brand has their own set of story lines that wrestling fans can digest on. Sadly, once in a while, those story lines are halted or somewhat erased, because WWE wanted to create an inter-promotional show, where each brand face each other for 'bragging rights'. It's here, where wrestling logic seem to take a downturn, as heels and faces join up to defend their wrestling brand against the other show. I never like this type of shows, because, some of these wrestlers have gimmicks that are anti-establishment, so it's weird to see them, fight for them. Also, it's strange to see baby-faces acting like heels, and heels acting faces. These shows just hurts the product as a whole. It's just impracticable. Let's start with the preshow matches of the night, where the cruiserweight division on Raw, seem somewhat lost in the shuffle. T.J. Perkins, Rich Swann, and Noam Dar Vs Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari was an alright match, but nothing worth remembering, since we saw similar matches like this, weeks before. It's just weird that their show, '205 Live' will premiere after a 'Smackdown' event, yet they're still a RAW brand. I hate to see them, having to travel, twice as much as the other wrestlers, because of that. It's kinda sad. Anyways, the main event for the preshow was pretty generic with Kane Vs Luke Harper. The actual pay-per-view opened with the women's Survivor Series elimination match pitting Team Raw (Raw Women's Champion Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox, and Nia Jax) against Team SmackDown (Nikki Bella, Carmella, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, and SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch). Without spoiling the show, too much, it's was a pretty good match, with few flaws. I didn't like that, Nia Jax is wearing a Raw t-shirt over her wrestling gear was weird. Why not get red color ring gear, instead? Also, Nikki Bella and Natalya's acting was just plain bad. It made the show seem, even more fake than it is. Even, the ending to the match, could had been better, with Bayley having to save Charlotte PPV winning streak. Have Charlotte be eliminated earlier, it would make the story between them, so much compelling. Anyways, the ending, we got, didn't really lead to anything in the following shows. So, it was kinda pointless. Next, Smackdown's The Miz with his wife, Maryse defended his Intercontinental Championship against Raw's Sami Zayn. The Toronto crowd really love Zayn. No wonder, why they replace the original champion, Dolph Ziggler at the last second. The ending to the match was no surprised, but it did make it seem like Maryse was turning against the Miz than helping him. After this, the 10-on-10 Survivor Series tag team elimination match pitted Team Raw (Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston), Sheamus and Cesaro, Enzo Amore and Big Cass, The Shining Stars, and Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson) against Team SmackDown (SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater and Rhyno, The Hype Bros, American Alpha, Breezango, and The Usos). This match was very sloppy with eliminating being just as awkward. Probably the worst match of the night. It got worst with 'Raw' champion, Brian Kendrick defended the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against 'Smackdown', Kalisto. Love the stalks of Raw losing the Cruiserweight division, but the match was somewhat boring as hell. The men's Survivor Series elimination match pitting Team Raw (WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman, United States Champion Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins) against Team SmackDown (WWE World Champion AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, and Shane McMahon) was the match of the night. Great story telling from everybody, but it's seems odd that the Wyatt Family would be fine, helping 'Smackdown' live, seeing how they're supposed to be 'the eater of worlds'. This brings us to the main event. It's funny that thirtieth event under the 'Survivor Series' chronology was built upon on a rematch, nobody really wanted to see, at first. After all, the first Brock Lesnar Vs Bill Goldberg was one of the worst matches in 'WrestleMania' history. Yes, much of the blame of that match being lousy at 2004's 'WrestleMania XX', can be said on the fact that both of the participants, were set to leave the WWE at the time after the event, but that wasn't the only fault. The match was also very slow, and very sloppy by the wrestlers. So, why in the hell, did WWE think that people want to see that match, again!? Well, they didn't, but video game producers, 2K Sports kinda forced their hand, when they revealed they set up a deal to have Goldberg as the pre-order bonus character & had Lesnar will be the cover star for WWE 2K17. So, to promote the video game, they create a fantasy crossover in which, the men would fight each other, once again for the 'Survivor Series'. For the most part, the hype kinda work. Fans slowly forgot the awfulness of their last match, and clinch to the nostalgia act that was Goldberg. Was the match better than their last match? Yes, but the main event was quite honest, too short. What went into this unpredictable booking decision? Is Brock finally getting punish for his PED Violation in Aug. Was there, a contact dispute? Was it to hide Goldberg's ring rust after a 12 year absence? Who knows! However, they really ruin the chance for aura of invincibility being destroy by somebody young. So that suck. Overall: It was alright show, even with the annoying theme song from the band, 'the Weekend'. The under card was decent with the main event being somewhat anticlimax. In the end, 'Survivor Series' 2016 was a show, best remember as showstopper. Good, but could be better.
