Who will be the ultimate survivor?
It's that time of the year again. WWE's finest go head-to-head in a series of large Elimination and Triple Threat matches in WWE: Survivor Series 2009. While everybody tries to emerge as a winner, there can only be so many survivors. Here is the complete lineup:
• The Miz, Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger, Sheamus & Dolph
Ziggler vs. John Morrison, Matt Hardy, Finlay, Evan Bourne & Shelton
Benjamin in a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
• Rey Mysterio vs. Batista
• Kofi Kingston, MVP, Mark Henry, Christian & R-Truth vs.
Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, CM Punk & William Regal in a
Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
• Undertaker vs. Big Show vs. Chris Jericho in a Triple Threat
Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
• Mickie James, Melina, Kelly Kelly, Gail Kim & Eve vs.
Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix, Alicia Fox, Layla & Jillian in a Traditional
Survivor Series Elimination Match
• John Cena vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels in a Triple Threat
Match for the WWE Championship
The full-frame transfer on the disc offers solid television picture quality, while the audio transfer performs decent enough as well. As usual, the bonus section on this WWE DVD stinks, offering only a lame backstage segment with Christian and a short post-show clip featuring DX.
WWE: Survivor Series: 2009 certainly won't go down as a memorable WWE pay-per-view, but most of these matches at least deliver some solid wrestling action. From what I've seen recently, it looks like the WWE may finally be getting it right. Only time and future PPVs will tell…
