The X-Factor: Can this Game be over already? Submitted by Victor Mariscal on 11/20/2017 at 07:08 PM
The Survivor Series in 2002 was in Madison Square Garden AND it marked the debut of the Elimination Chamber. Triple H defended the World Heavyweight Championship Ė which was awarded to him Ė against Shawn Michaels, Booker T, Kane, Chris Jericho, and Rob Van Dam. It was Shawn who unseated the Game. I was a happy fan. Michaels hoisting the gold high is one of my favorite feel-good moments ever.
It happened in the first year of Triple Hís ďReign of terrorĒ. 15 years later and itís like it never really ended. To think you people spent all that time whining about John Cena and bitching nonstop about Roman Reigns.
There was Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, and Finn Balor in the match. All three of them were major stars in NXT and the Game chose that time to hog the spotlight.
Triple H isnít the only one guilty of making everything about them.
I got off my couch to use the bathroom. When I heard Stephanie McMahon talking, I took my time and got some food. I dare anyone to email me and tell me why Stephanie being on TV doing what she does is good for business. She spends all her time on the mic dressing people down but she becomes some motivational speaker towards the females. The high heels only exemplified how big her ego is.
By this logic, I should come down hard on Shane. Itís true that he canít throw a punch worth a damn, and being booked to be on the level of guys like The Undertaker, AJ Styles, and Kevin Owens is counter-productive. Still, that match with ĎTaker caused a spike in ticket sales at WrestleMania 32. Thereís also those death-defying stunts he does.
Thatís why I cut him some slack. He goes above and beyond. They do not.
It doesnít change what is. NXT got shafted big time, as did Randy Orton and John Cena. The women didnít have a good time of it either.
This could lead to a match between Triple H and Shane-O-Mac. It would be the best day ever if Shane got the pin.
Well, it wasnít the worst Survivor Series. We have Brock and AJ to thank for that.
