PPV Fusion: Survivor Series 2012
The 2012 WWE Survivor Series Pay-Per-View starts with a bonus Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination match that sees Brodus Clay (accompanied by Cameron and Naomi), Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, and Rey Mysterio taking on Tensai, Primo and Epico (accompanied by Rosa Mendes), and “Prime Time Players” Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.
The match sees Mysterio get the victory for his team, when he hits Young with a diving splash for the 3-count.
After someone in a blonde wig attempts to attack Kaitlyn backstage, only to be unmasked as Aksana, and the subsequent interaction between Kaitlyn and Eve Torres, Kaitlyn is pitted against Eve Torres for the Divas Championship in a match which sees Eve get the victory and retain her title, when she hits Kaitlyn with a snap swing-neckbreaker for the 3-count.
After a video recapping the interaction between members of Team Ziggler during the Pre-Show, an interaction backstage between the members of Team Foley, and a video recapping the events of Monday Night Raw involving Antonio Cesaro and R-Truth (click here for our Raw report), Antonio Cesaro goes against R-Truth for the United States Championship.
The match sees Cesaro get the victory and retain his title, when he hits Truth with the Neutralizer for the 3-count.
After a video hyping the next WWE Pay-Per-View, “TLC” on 16th December, and a video recapping the events of Raw involving AJ, John Cena, Vickie Guerrero, and Dolph Ziggler, a tweet is shown from AJ saying that she has evidence of Vickie Guerrero being red-handed, followed by AJ making her way to the ring.
AJ claims that Vickie Guerrero is accusing her of John Cena because she has something to hide of her own, which Vickie denies. AJ then proceeds to show various images on the titantron of events that clearly never happened, but she then informs Vickie that although she will lose her job if she hits Vickie, the same is true if Vickie attempts the same.
Unfortunately for AJ, Vickie apparently has a way around that, as Tamina appears and attacks AJ from behind, while Vickie tries to look surprised before then laughing at AJ’s misfortune.
After a video hyping the imminent release of “The Attitude Era” on DVD and Blu-Ray, and Josh Mathews interviews Paul Heyman, and a video recapping the events involving The Big Show and Sheamus that led to the upcoming match, The Big Show takes on Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship.
The match sees The Big Show get the victory and retain his title, when he hits Sheamus with the K.O Punch for the 3-count. It is not without controversy however, as the original referee was knocked out by Show pulling him in front of a Brogue Kick from Sheamus earlier, and the bell was never rung to end the match, thus allowing another referee to make this count.
A third referee makes their presence known however, and reverses the decision by disqualifying Show, but although this means that Sheamus becomes the winner, Show still retains his title due to it not changing hands on a disqualification.
Afterwards, Show argues with the referee who disqualified him, until Sheamus grabs a steel chair and starts to attack Show with it.
Next up, Alberto Del Rio, David Otunga, Damien Sandow, David Otunga, Wade Barrett, and Dolph Ziggler are pitted against “Team Hell No” Kane and Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, and Randy Orton in a Traditional Survivor Series match which sees Ziggler get the victory for his team, when he counters Orton’s punt attempt with a superkick for the 3-count.
After showing some Touts from fans about the upcoming match, and a video recapping the events involving John Cena, CM Punk, and Ryback that led to the upcoming match, CM Punk (accompanied by Paul Heyman), John Cena, and Ryback go against each other in a Triple Threat match for the WWE Championship.
The match sees Ryback get attacked and put through the Spanish announcers’ table by Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose from WWE NXT, and Punk get the victory to retain his title, when Punk crawls into the ring and covers the downed Cena for the 3-count.
CM Punk and Paul Heyman celebrate on the stage, as Survivor Series goes off the air.
