The promotional video for WWE Survivor Series is out now. The footage focuses on Dean Ambrose, John Cena, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and AJ Lee amongst others.
The only seven names to be mentioned in particular in the video are John Cena, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, AJ Lee, Sheamus, Bray Wyatt and Paige. Here are my thoughts on the ad.
I’m surprised that AJ is shown, holding the title. This kinda kills the suspense for tomorrow night. It was expected that she’ll retain but still it doesn’t make sense to me to release spoilers for your own pay-per-view. I wonder if someone just didn’t pay enough attention when planing this. Anyway, if we judge by the attention Paige gets in the promo, her feud with the champ won’t be over this Sunday.
Another thing that made an impression on me is, that Bray Wyatt is heavily featured too. That’s good news. We know the Wyatts are soon to be back on TV, but this Survivor Series promo makes it clear that The Eater of Worlds will shoot back to the top the moment he sets his foot back in the WWE. My dream scenario would be to have him face Ambrose, who appears just after Cena in the video. The battle of words between Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose is something that the fans have been longing for ever since the time when the Shield and the Wyatt Family were feuding.
We see Cesaro and Sheamus quite a lot. No Ziggler though. Does this mean that Cesaro will go over The Show Off on Sunday? That would be a surprise to many because most predictions are betting on Dolph retaining.
Randy Orton’s not featured but his name is mentioned in the description, so my educated guess would be that he’ll be at Survivor Series and that he’ll be facing Seth Rollins. That’s of course, if Roman Reigns doesn’t decide to return and pick up where he left off with his former Shield brother, while The Viper is busy winning the WWE Heavyweight Championship.
I wonder, where does all this leave Cena. He’s the top guy and I don’t see where he’s headed next. It could be Brock Lesnar but he hasn’t officially been confirmed for Survivor Series. The other option I see, is a bit more far-fetched and involves Reigns returning as a heel/tweener and challenging Cena. As cool as that sounds, it’s very unlikely. We could toy with half of the names in this video and it’ll still make sense to have Cena face them. But that opens too much room for speculations, so I’ll leave it for after Hell in a Cell when the picture gets clearer.
