Hiya gang, hoping things are going well. Just opening up a new thread for you to make predictions, to talk about the PPV, and so forth. I'll also use it for any news behind the scenes so sometimes there will be SPOILERS from time to time. I might also do a live report this time so I hope that goes down well. Take care and enjoy Survivor Series!

Well with that cage match done we now got our (oddly booked IMHO) main event:

RAW Champ Chris Jericho vs. John Cena returning from injury.

Not sure how that flies for some behind the scenes for an injured guy to come back and suddenly get the title shot but will at least keep crowd straight with the heel Jericho against a likely SUPER HOT FACE Cena in his hometown. Batista will be in this somehow watching or whatnot but I keep hearing WWE wanting him to turn heel but he keeps refusing (likely being only able to go a few more years tops due to his age and size) so maybe they got cold feet to have two faces go at it.

Meanwhile likely expect HHH vs. Koslov for the Smackdown belt once Koslov beats Taker by hook or by crook. I thought odder with ratings down we now get Shane and Steph McMahon handling RAW (with hinted dissension from Steph going maybe heel once more) and liners like Shane noting to Orton "Forget about Survivor Series, it's weeks away." Well it will come faster than they think.

We do got some hints for matches like:

*Orton and maybe his odd relationship/tough love with Priceless vs. CM Punk, Kofi and maybe others in some SS style match (4 on 4 or 5 on 5 elimination tags which I sorely miss for SS having for the majority of the card, now we're lucky to get one)

*Undertaker vs. Big Show (this is like going on FOREVER, please come back Edge ASAP from Hell/Vacation/Florida!)

*Rey and the Great Khali vs. Mark Henry and Kane (Ummm...curious, anyone actually LIKING Fat Chick Lover Face Khali?!)

*Some Divas match, particularly with the Michelle McCool hinting dissention with Maria for the Butterfly belt

*JBL vs. HBK in some grudge match

Thoughts for now, we shall see how things flow. Ta!

*UPDATE NOV. 12/08 and NOV 13/08*

OK here are updates thanks to the spoilers from the UK, as they also taped next week's Smackdown as well.

ok i am going to make some predictions lets see how well i do this time (although i will edit this when new matches become clearer )

ok the main event is of course CJ vs JC...Jericho Vs Cena for the world heavyweight championship, the first undisputed champion vs one of the greatest champions in the wwe era.
Now this is interesting because like many of you have said this is Cena's return match and he is thrown into a title match...fair? maybe not but this is a match that people haven't seen in over 4 or 5 years (can't remember exactly lol) for those who don't remember John Cena and Chris Jericho had a major rivalry after Cena was drafted to RAW which ended with Jericho being fired and disappearing from all wrestling but now he is back with a dark side and the devils luck to help him on his way which has helped him back a 2 and 3 time world champion...However he takes on the man with the devils healing problems and strength in John Cena who in many years has beaten the best from the undertaker to HHH to surviving career ending injuries and making it back to the ring faster than humanly possible.
Now the big question is this...can Jericho's devils luck beat Cena's devils strength and the answer is NO!!! and i will tell you why...because Cena also has the devils luck which is why he has made so much history in his career from Lifting the big show, Big daddy V and the great Khali to having not one but TWO year long title reigns in his young career to beating the odds time and time again from Beating Edge in a TLC match to beating the game at Wrestlemania 22.
the other big question is going to answer simply... Will Cena walk out of Survivor Series as the Champ...No, i am sorry to all the cena fans but his time is coming...but not yet

Prediction for the match: Cena wins by DQ so Jericho retains the world title

Next is the Deadman vs A Deadman lol sorry i couldnt help myself...its the Undertaker vs The Big Show and this is going to be interesting because the undertaker as i can remember hasn't won at survivor series in a long time, you could say this PPV is the undertaker weakest showing but then again he has won both of the other S/S casket matches against Kamala and Yokozuna so this might be the best match for the undertaker at this PPV.
He takes on the big show that has only won at the survivor series twice...but then again he won the championship twice too but that not really a great record either so effectively you got a Survivor Series Loser vs a Survivor Series Loser and only one of them is going to continue that streak whilst the other gets a add a victory to their records

My prediction: 500lbs deadweight is going in a casket wether he likes it or not

- WWE World Title Match: Chris Jericho vs John Cena;
Jericho has to win, he only regained it 2 weeks ago, no reason to lose it again 3 weeks later



- The Undertaker vs Big Show in a Casket Match;
Taker via Interference from edge attacking the Big Show

- Team HBK (Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio & Cryme Tyme & Great Khali) vs Team JBL (JBL & The Miz & John Morrison & Kane & MVP);
The face team will probably win, I do hope the Heels win though

-Team Batista (Batista & Matt Hardy & Kofi Kingston & C.M. Punk & R-Truth) vs. Team Orton (Randy Orton & Mark Henry & Shelton Benjamin & Cody Rhodes & William Regal).
Why is Regal in this, he has nothing to do with any of these superstars, he is fueding withJamie Noble or Santino or something...... ?, Shouldn't Ted DiBiase or Manu be in it?.

2 pointless SS matches, a Boring Feud ender, The return and failure of John Cena (hopefully) and Probably another Triple H squash

UPDATE just prior to the PPV! News from many sites but here's what has been gathered: http://www.f4wonline.com/content/view/7523/



So check it ONLY if you want to be on the ball about the PPV and who's there right now. We'll get more clarification during the PPV and I'll cover it in a new SURVIVOR SERIES LIVE REPORT Thread I'll open up. Take care!

So how about my picks then? Here they are and check out other picks and aids I used courtesy MR. KENNEDY...KENNEDY at http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/2008/11/20/7481891.html and other sites like http://www.thefightnetwork.com/news/wrestling/2186/the_laws_survivor_series_preview

And be back here SUNDAY NIGHT starting at 8PM EASTERN TIME in North America for the LIVE PPV REPORT!

SURVIVOR SERIES 2008 in Boston this SUNDAY

CHRIS JERICHO VS JOHN CENA FOR THE WORLD TITLE
PICK: BIG NOTE this is in Boston, and returning from injury to get a title shot (deserving or not) is hometown boy and WWE cash cow John Cena. Yes I hate his in-ring still and Jericho is my main man from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, eh. I will give the WWE can ill afford losing a big face in Cena but I do question both giving him a sudden title shot (yes even at home) and rushing him back possibly. I'll be cursing all the way if Cena wins and I'm sure Bostonians will do the same if he loses. It's a mix crowd usually with Cena. I do want to point out the WWE backwards booking plans to have hometown boys LOSE most of the time. Great way to reward your fans. Also Jericho just won it back a mere 2 weeks ago after losing it to Batista, so the World title has suffered too much bouncing around of late to even have value...

After my complaints, I got to make the pick. I feel Jericho will lose sadly to Cena or else why even have him take it off Batista. I do hope that this mean this feud begins as Jericho deserves to be a top heel now on RAW. This will be the last match of the night so I think they'll get scared to send fans home unhappy (and likely rioting after watching their Patroits and Bruins lose this weekend, SNAP!).

TRIPLE H VS JEFF HARDY VS VLADIMIR KOZLOV FOR THE WWE TITLE
PICK: I'm displeased as usual at the burial of Smackdown by HHH. I hate his cool face who scoffs at insiders like myself and keeps any talent down of late. His act is old and wearing thin. It's time for a change and I advise it for the betterment of Smackdown and HHH. HHH needs to either go heel or chase as the face a strong heel. Jeff Hardy is there but has had too many chances and mucks it up off stage with drug issues and other personal demons.

Therefore it's Koslov's time. He is an old school heel style and not amazing in ring, but he's got enough to hold the belt for a bit so HHH can chase him OR hold it until HHH and Jeff do a proper feud with one of them as heel. So the Russian Lance Storm, Vladimir Koslov wins and becomes your new WWE Champ! I will say he pins Jeff so this chase for HHH somewhere down the road can be done since he can say he was never pinned.

THE UNDERTAKER VS BIG SHOW IN A "CASKET MATCH"
PICK: I'm going against the grain again as I think we need back Edge to help Smackdown out. He's rested well in Hell (aka Florida) so he's ready to comeback and screw over the Undertaker by hiding in the Casket and helping Show out. Edge IS La Familia and the top heel needs to come back. Let's add Umaga to the mix since Taker seems to only lose these matches if a bunch of people help. So I'm taking Big Show to win with Edge/Umaga/Chavo/anyone else of La Familia's help to shut the Undertaker in his match (maybe another short holiday rest too until the Rumble due to his aging body).

SURVIVOR SERIES RULES (You must eliminate all members of a team to win): SHAWN MICHAELS & REY MYSTERIO & CRYME TYME & GREAT KHALI VS JBL & MVP & THE MIZ & JOHN MORRISON & KANE
PICK: Does anyone want to see JBL in a ring anymore?! One thing I will count right away is MVP will be out in 2 minutes flat with how they're burying him. Miz will be next then both of Cryme Tyme. Morrison will be your shocking guy to stay in long like a Royal Rumble match as he's shone of late in big tag matches. I think Kane and Khali take each other out to sadly start that new feud. Morrisson will be out and this will leave Rey and HBK to take out JBL, but JBL will continue the feud by saying the odds were not fair. WINNER and sole survivors will be Rey and HBK.

SURVIVOR SERIES RULES (You must eliminate all members of a team to win): BATISTA & CM PUNK & KOFI KINGSTON & MATT HARDY & R-TRUTH VS RANDY ORTON & WILLIAM REGAL & SHELTON BENJAMIN & MARK HENRY & CODY RHODES
PICK: I want to note Orton has a 2 Survivor Series record going now of being the lone survivor on each SS Rules match he's been in and I call he'll continue to 3. I see deadweight Mark Henry out first, then Kofi and R-Truth. Benjamin and Regal will be out next. I see Orton screwing Cody and costing him to be next out, leaving him alone. But then I see RKOs in the future of CM Punk, Matt Hardy and Batista as Orton will survive them all, maybe cheating to get the pin on Batista to continue that feud. WINNER and sole survivor will be Randy Orton for the third straight year. Extra note is I hope Matt Hardy is out quick or handled well only due to him saying on his blog his knee is a mess and soon he'll need to take time off, drop the ECW belt and get the surgery needed.

SURVIVOR SERIES RULES (You must eliminate all members of a team to win): RAW DIVAS BETH PHOENIX & KELLY KELLY & MICKIE JAMES & JILLIAN HALL & CANDICE MICHELLE VS SMACKDOWN DIVAS MICHELLE McCOOL & MARIA & MARYSE & VICTORIA & NATALYA
PICKS: Your 1 Divas match a PPV. A few stories here with McCool still likely turning heel on Maria, and an eventual Beth/Kelly Match. I see out sadly Victoria and Natalya first even if they're SO much more talented than the rest in ring. Jillian and Candice will be eliminated next, followed by Maryse. I then see McCool costing Maria so Maria is gone next, then Beth doing the same to Kelly Kelly. I see Beth coming out on top over McCool. Your WINNER and sole survivor will be Beth Phoenix. Also count on some AWESOME victory dance by Santino Marella!
