      Nah, shitty booking in the build up and the fact that the PPV was only 3 weeks after Night of Champions is the primary thing to blame. This pairing’s NOC and HIAC numbers were alot better than this PPV for a reason and they outdrew TLC’s unification match for a reason.

    I knew survivor series would be low, especially with the Orton/BigShow being the “main event” and the way battleground ended in a dq, it deserves that honor of being the worst number wise
