He’s going to treat Pete Dunne like a Raw or Smackdown star – he’s going to show everyone what a definitive star looks like and that’s undisputed.
They showed Shayna Baszler walking in the back with the Horsewomen.
Backstage, Bayley said her plan tonight is to do what she’s been doing for several months, taking over every show. She’s going to do that tonight on the biggest platform, Survivor Series. For years, she’s been looked at as an underdog but she keeps it all in until its time for the match. It’s different now and she’s sick of it. Everything her opponents have coming tonight is their own fault. Everyone is the same target to her. Pin or submit one of the other, it doesn’t matter. It’s her night. Promo was just OK.

The panel began talking on Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles vs. Roderick Strong when Sami Zayn showed up and said they cannot talk about that match without treating it with proper respect. They don’t Nakamura as the artist that he is. Zayn respects Styles and Strong as tremendous competitors, but they are not artists or intellectuals like Nakamura. He complained the panel was talking about the match with the importance it deserved. They noted they were about to when he showed up. He said Nakamura has Sami Zayn in his corner, which is what makes him different. Booker remarked that Chuck D had Flavor Flav. They asked Sami if he even knew who Flavor Flav was. As a native NYer and a big Flavor Flav fan, this cracked me.

Really, truly enjoyable opener with everyone having a moment and lots of fun, first-time interactions. I could have done without the outside interference. Make the NXT brand as strong as possible.

The Undisputed Era came out to celebrate with Cole.

Lighting aside, it was a good match with a very clear good vs. evil story. At the rate they are going, Bray could be a legitimate Wrestlemania opponent for Undertaker. Bryan channeling the Yes Movement stuff was very enjoyable and he played a great babyface challenger against Wyatt. Another really enjoyable match.
At the risk of jinxing the show, I have to say this has been a very entertaining PPV thus far.
Rey Mysterio was interviewed backstage. He looked very solemn. He said that he can’t believe that it’s been 15 years since the first time he fought Brock Lesnar. Time has passed but some things never change. Brock never changed, but Rey has. Holding the pipe he’s used in recent weeks, he promised he was going to do things the old Rey would have never done. He said that a few months ago, he was going to take off his mask and retire but he didn’t because of his son Dominick. He said that in moments like this, he used to tell his son to look away. Tonight, he wants his son to watch closely as he uses the pipe to take Brock’s legs out one by one. He’s going to massacre Brock Lesnar and take away his WWE title. Good promo.
They aired a GREAT WWE TLC PPV commercial, a parody of holiday specials. I loved it.
