Time for the battle royal!

Dual Brand Battle Royal

Participants include: Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Murphy, Ricochet, Apollo Crews, Angel Garza, The Miz (Mr. Money in the Bank), John Morrison, Shelton Benjamin, Cedric Alexander, Jeff Hardy, Kalisto, Robert Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, Elias, Dolph Ziggler, Humberto Carrillo, and Chad Gable.

Everyone brawls to big in and Dominik eliminated John Morrison almost right away. Kalisto and Rey face off. Cedric eliminates Kalisto. Mysterio goes for a 619 on Roode but Ziggler hits a super kick. Rey is eliminated. Garza and Carrillo go at it and Garza eliminates him. Elias and Hardy are paired off. Cedric and Shelton eliminate Garza. Ricochet squares off with the Hurt Business. Ricochet and Cedric battle on the apron where Cedric gets eliminated but Shelton eliminates Ricochet. Apollo eliminates Shelton. Ziggler tries to eliminate Murphy but Murphy skins the cat. Roode is able to eliminate Murphy. Roode is gone next. Dominik and Ziggler battle on the apron. Ziggler charges and hits the post. Dominik eliminates Ziggler with a drop kick. Crews avoids a knee by Nakamura in the corner. Nakamura then gets Crews out with a knee strike. Hardy and Nakamura battle in the corner. Hardy delivers a jaw breaker and kick to eliminate Nakamura.

Dominik goes for a 619 but Miz catches him with a boot. Miz is standing tall. Miz delivers "It" kicks to Dominik. Miz tries to send Dominik out but Dominik counters and Miz goes to the apron. Miz is sent outside with a baseball slide but I'm not sure he was eliminated. Gable schools Dominik with suplexes. Gable tries to eliminate Dominik in the corner but Dominik fights back. Gable avoids a 618. DOMINIK HITS 619 THIS TIME! DOMINIK ELIMINATES GABLE! THE MIZ IS BACK TO ELIMINATE DOMINIK FOR THE WIN!! The fact that they've used the same false elimination finish for lots of battle royals brings this down for me. There were some decent names that I feel should of been included in this but weren't (Big E, Aleister Black, Lars Sullivan, Retribution, Cesaro Randy Orton).

W: The Miz via last eliminating Dominik Mysterio @ 12:06 (**)

I'm just happy we got a clean finish.

Undertaker is on a special edition of the Broken Skull Sessions immediately following Survivor Series on the WWE Network.

Big Show is next to come to the ring. JBL is next. Jeff Hardy next. Hardy is rocking the classic TX Undertaker symbol with his face paint. Mick Foley is next. Holy beard! He's ready to play Santa for the holidays. The Godfather is next! It's an edited version of his Godfather theme music for obvious reasons. The Godwinns are next!

Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair are next! Triple H is next! Kane is out now. Now a video package is shown. It's the same one shown on the kickoff show set to Metallica's "Now that we're Dead". This video package is awesome! Words don't do it justice. "Undertaker" chants after the video package. VINCE MCMAHON IS IN THE RING NOW!! Everyone else is gone now. McMahon says for 3 decades Taker has entertained the WWF/WWE audience. Tonight is the end of an era for the most storied career in history. McMahon says tonight we say good bye. McMahon tears up as he says people says nothing last forever. They're wrong because Undertaker's legacy will last forever. McMahon says "I give you the Dead Man! The Phenom! The Undertaker!!" Flames shoot up and his entrance is over the top!! After moments of waiting while his music is played, UNDERTAKER APPEARS THROUGH THE SMOKE!! Taker gets to the ring and when he raises his arms in the corner, a platform lifts him up to the ring. Taker gets in the ring and Vince is gone. His music stops and Taker has a mic.

Taker says his time has come to let the Undertaker REST IN PEACE!!!

The bell tolls and Undertaker's music begins playing while he's still on one knee. Taker stands and looks out into the crowd. Taker does his throat slash taunt before exiting the ring. Undertaker walks up the ramp but stops to look back and raises his arm up!!! TAKER WALKS OFF INTO THE SUNSET!! End Show.

Overall Rating: 6.5/10

This Survivor Series was a mixed bag. The New Day/Profits and McIntyre/Reigns easily steal the show. Banks/Asuka was good but I honestly expected better from them. The battle royal was just a way to get most of the roster on the card and remind us The Miz has the briefcase although cashing in would of overshadowed Undertaker's farewell. The 5-on-5 matches were disappointing in my eyes with questionable booking decisions. I feel like WWE missed a big opportunity to make Belair a star. What do I know though?? Lashley/Zayn was what is was and about what I expected. Heel vs. heel matches can be tricky anyways but almost never work without the right guys.
