The Shield defeated Cody Rhodes, Goldust and Rey Mysterio. Like usual, this 6 man tag team match was excellent. The Shield picked up the victory after a flurry of moves and reversals went wrong. Reigns hits his massive spear only to get thrown to the outside by Rhodes. Ambrose ends up hitting his finisher on Rhodes for the win. What did this match tell me? It says that WWE has no plans to split The Shield up by the end of the year. I can easily see some conflict occurring in the next few weeks, but they still are exciting and a constant reminder that all three guys have big plans in the future. I could easily see Rey vs. Dean Ambrose for the United States Championship, while Reigns goes onto bigger and more important superstars…. as we will talk about later in this Title This article.
Big E Langston and Mark Henry defeated Curtis Axel and Ryback. This match was much more entertaining than I thought it would be. I love the athleticism of Langston, who showcased his ability to hurdle a running Axel. Langston crushed Ryback and sent him to the outside, which set up Mark Henry's finisher on Axel. I do not see Langston and Henry being a long term tag team, but they did a solid job working off of each other tonight. It was obvious why was going to win this match from the very beginning.
Eva Marie and the Bellas Stand Tall
WWE gives us the same exact Survivor Series match from a night ago. There were only a few differences. WWE really put effort into making Tamina Snuka look powerful. She worked longer and hit more moves tonight. It did not matter at the end of the match when the Total Divas picked up the victory. Eva Marie is very poor in the ring right now. She should not be fighting. Naomi is getting better and better, even though she almost botched a neck breaker. I give credit to Nikki and Brie, two Divas who you can tell are working hard to improve their ring skills.
