It's been a strange year for the WWE. They've lost big names to injuries, brought back old stars, lost those stars to injury and experienced huge dips in ratings. They've also grown their own Indie wrestling brand in NXT and have emerging stars on the roster that could potentially become main event players and huge draws. So, let's say it's been a bad year, but one that could've been a lot worse.
If they want to salvage this year, their last chance to do it is at Survivor Series, the last of the big four PPVs. While last year's event wasn't great, it at least had the arrival of Sting to add to its luster and create excitement going into 2015. What will WWE produce to generate excitement about 2016 and its upcoming huge WrestleMania in Dallas? Well, read on to find out!

Spoilers lie ahead. Be warned!!
Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio
Let's get something out of the way here, Alberto Del Rio looks terrific, but his gimmick is absolutely terrible and there was absolutely no way the leader of Mex-America would win this match. That being said, Del Rio is able to carry weaker wrestlers and that was definitely the case here. In fairness to Reigns, he had some decent moments, like a sit-down power bomb, but Del Rio was absolutely terrific here. The end came when Del Rio attempted an aerial attack, missed and then got hit with a spear. Predictable, but decent.
Winner: Roman Reigns
