WWE Survivor Series 2006 DVD Review
Team Legends (Ric Flair, Ron Simmons, Dusty Rhodes & Sgt. Slaughter) w/Arn Anderson vs. The Spirit Squad w/Mitch (Elimination Match)
Arn Anderson was on the outside of this match, and I immediately wished he could still wrestle. But thanks to major injuries, he’s just outside for a while, and after throwing a Spirit Squad Member into the steel ring post, he got thrown out! The Spirit Squad managed to edge out Ron Simmons ,Dusty Rhodes , and finally Sgt. Slaughter before having a 2 on 1 advantage over the legends. Ric Flair, the only legend still kicking, edged out everyone except for Kenny who is foreshadowed here for a fued with the legend.
The Figure Four put away Kenny’s ambitious comeback, only to get the rest of the Spirit Squad to come out and tackle a beaten flair with no help from the back.
Winners: The Legends (but post-match Beatdown didn’t help)
US Title: Chris Benoit vs. Chavo Guerrero w/Vickie Guerrero
I was one of the people that liked Chavo in the Cruiserweight division, and think he can go. I like Chris Benoit when he has a good guy to play off of. (IE; Kevin Sullivan) Otherwise I don’t like Chris Benoit trying to interact with Vickie Guerrero. That’s why this match had me sleeping.
Winner: Chris Benoit…I think
Women's Title: Lita vs. Mickie James
This was Lita’s final match. I fell asleep. Mickie James is nice enough looking, she just can’t wrestle very well.
Winner: Mickie James
Team DX (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy & CM Punk) vs. Team RKO (Edge, Randy Orton, Gregory Helms, Johnny Nitro & Mike Knox) - Elimination Match
Team DX dominated this match. They never, ever, lost a member and even when things weren’t looking good they still came out on top. This match was so one sided that the heels all lost tremendously.
Winners: Team DX
First Blood Match - Undertaker vs. Mr. Kennedy
KENNEDY! The best new star to come out of the WWE has shown that not only is he a good wrestler, but that he can get one over the Dead Man. Thanks to some good interference from MVP to set up a potential face turn for Kennedy, the match was really good. Undertaker still has some good stuff in him.
Winner: Ken Kennedy!
Team Cena (John Cena, RVD, Sabu, Kane & Boogeyman) vs. Team Big Show (Big Show, Test, Umaga, Fit Finlay & MVP) - Elimination Match
The best part of this match was Cena vs. Umaga’s lead in to what is now a full blown fued between the two. Other than that, it was simply all faces all the time, although they did lose two members the winner in the end via a huge F5 on the Big Show was Team Cena.
Winners: Team Cena
World Title - King Booker vs. Batista
I fell asleep during this one too. I love Booker T, but I don’t like Batista so I missed the ending. I think Batista won….but no one cares.
