What’s up wrestling fans? I’m back with another edition of Nick’s Pay-Per-Review, this time taking a look at WWE’s annual Thanksgiving tradition known as Survivor Series.

Back in the day, the Survivor Series PPV consisted only of elimination matches, so it was easier for WWE to book individuals to look strong in each match, as there was more time devoted to the traditional elimination bouts. Nowadays, with title matches and singles matches added to the card in addition to the elimination matches, it’s often difficult for every wrestler to shine in the elimination matches, and you can’t help but feel that one of more wrestlers seem "screwed" out of a good PPV showing.
