WWE Survivor Series PPV Results (11/19): Houston, Texas
Sunday, November 19, 2017
The Survivor Series Kickoff Show starts with a view of the fans outside of the Toyota Center making their way to the arena. Renee Young welcomes us to the show and she introducing the rest of the panel, consisting this time of Peter Rosenberg, Jerry "the King" Lawler, and the Heartbreak Kid himself, Shawn Michaels. They talk about tonight's RAW vs. SmackDown theme and run down the matches. Renee then sends us to a video package featuring tonight's six-man match where The Shield will take on The New Day. Shawn, Lawler, Renee and Rosenberg all predict The Shield to win. Renee sends us backstage to Charly Caruso in the Social Media Lounge. She will be joined by WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz later on. Fans can submit questions using the hashtag #AskTheMiz. Charly then sends it to Sam Roberts, who is outside with a bunch of fans chanting. Sam talks about last night's NXT TakeOver: WarGames PPV and tonight's PPV. Sam sends it back to Renee for more hype on tonight's show.
We head backstage where Captain Becky Lynch is with the rest of Team SmackDown. Natalya interrupts them with a whistle and asks them who is excited to see her decimate & dominate tonight. Becky says that they don't have time for antics and asks Natalya to shut up. Becky goes back to her speech with everyone else chiming in. Lana then mentions how Tamina Snuka will take care of Nia Jax tonight. Becky says that they will prove SmackDown is the number one show tonight. They all appear to be on the same page as we go back to the panel. Shawn and Rosenberg predicts that Team RAW will win the women's match but Lawler and Renee disagree. We get hype for the Alexa Bliss vs. Charlotte Flair match up as Bliss joins the panel. Alexa Bliss says that she has been studying Natalya for weeks and weeks and it's not fair to her to have Charlotte Flair in at the last minute.
She scoffs at the idea that she would have been touched by the moment Ric and Charlotte had after she won and she says that it is about her beating Charlotte, not about the Nature Boy coming out afterwards. The size discrepancy comes up and Bliss says that she is the only Five Feet of Fury in WWE and she'll be quicker, smarter and more dominant than Flair. HBK pipes up in favor of her size argument.
Charlotte joins the panel from the backstage to say that she is the Iron Woman of WWE, she doesn't get sick or run, and yes, Alexa may have held both titles first, but she's a Grand Slam Champion. Bliss fires back by saying that Flair may be a legacy but she's the superior champion. Charlotte says that Bliss may have worked hard but she wasn't called up to be part of the Women's Revolution and she's not in her league.
Flair goes off by hoping Alexa can beat her and in fact that's her challenge to her. The panel finishes up with that one
We go to ringside as Michael Cole welcomes us. He is joined by Corey Graves and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T for our first match of the night. JoJo is in the ring to introduce Elias, who has a guitar and a spotlight. Elias plugs Survivor Series and knocks Houston before beginning his latest song as fans boo.

Elias vs. Matt Hardy: The opening bell sounds and this one is evenly matched with back and forth holds in the opening moments. Hardy takes down Elias first and follows up with a Russian leg sweep. Hardy follows up with an elbow drop for a two count, then Elias rolls outside for a breather. Back in the ring, Elias mounts a comeback and hits a shoulder-breaker on Matt.

Miz says that the time for talk is done and he's gonna let his actions speak in the ring, where he is an elite-level talent and Corbin will see exactly why. Baron talking about his wife and unborn child has given him a newfound focus and he will unleash everything he has tonight. First question is about how Team Raw would react to a loss tonight and the A-Lister says that his whole goal as champion is to make the Intercontinental Championship the most prestigious title in the world, so losing isn't in his vocabulary.
The second question is about if he feels any pressure and Miz talks about his trials and tribulations and how he's gotten to a point where he thinks he's the main event of any show he's on. Third question is about if Raw is good enough to beat SmackDown and Miz says any show he's on succeeds. When he was on SmackDown, it was #1, now that he's on Raw, it's #1 and he elevates everyone by his mere presence.
The panel discusses the match before tossing to ringside for the Cruiserweight Championship match.
WWE 205 Live announcers Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness are on commentary now. Kalisto makes his way out first as Greg Hamilton does the introductions.
Enzo Amore makes his way down to the ring and he does his usual promo. He talks about how this past Tuesday was Kalisto's birthday and he was nice enough to get him the best cake money could buy and what did he get for his effort? He got his face shoved in the cake. So he woke up today feeling it was his birthday and he made a wish upon the star in his mirror and he knows his wish is coming true and he's going to make beef stew out of Kalisto even though he's chicken. SAWFT.

Kevin Owens gets on the mic and says that they didn't come to WWE to compete with clowns like Breezango and Sami Zayn says that they'll call it what it is. It is a disgrace and an insult to the two best on SmackDown that they have been relegated to having a match with those guys tonight. Owens wants them to give up on the Fashion Files and investigate a real crime, because this is where he won his first Intercontinental and Universal Championships and tonight he should be making history again by leading Team SmackDown to victory over Raw, but they're not and that's because of Shane McMahon.
Sami agrees and wants them to get to the bottom of Shane's vendetta against them and Owens moots the idea of looking into how Shane is still commissioner after making SmackDown such a hostile working environment. Zayn says that he was concerned for his well-being and they did what they had to do, what they always do, the right thing. They escaped because they're not going to be pawns in McMahon's propaganda machine, that's not their fight or their problem.
He's interrupted mid-promo by Breezango making their entrance. Walking and talking, Tyler says that they got an anonymous tip about two optical offenders harassing the WWE Universe and Fandango says the by the smell of it he thinks they have found them. Breeze says that the stench, the unmanicured facial hair, that's at least ten different violations. Sami greets the police and Fandango calls him a paperboy before offering up a headline about them saving Survivor Series from a couple of fashion felons.

We head backstage where AJ Styles will be interviewed. He says that he is not telling his strategy, but if you want to talk about Heyman calling him an underdog, well, who isn't an underdog against Brock Lesnar? He doesn't fear Lesnar, sure he might be afraid of what might happen in the ring, but that fear's a good thing, because he moves a little faster, jumps a little higher and hits a lot harder.
Tonight he's gonna have to be better than great, he's going to have to be phenomenal. Jinder Mahal shows up for a tense moment before leaving.

Kofi Kingston continues by saying that last week Kurt Angle took SmackDown under siege and unleashed the Hounds of Justice on your boys.
It took them three weeks to steal their idea and they couldn't do it as well as they did. The only thing that was proven is that The Shield have a big old set of big, gigantic, dangling guts. But as they all know, dogs will always be dogs and your boys are about to go Bob Barker on their ass.
