I should’ve done this when I re-watched the show, but since I didn’t, here’s the quick results of WWE Survivor Series 2008.
Team HBK defeated Team JBL. Your sole survivors: HBK, Rey Mysterio, & The Great Khali. I’ve always hated when there’s more than one person left on the winning team, and they call them “Sole Suvivors.” That’s like naming a band “The Lone Rangers.” Isn’t that right, cast of Airheads?
Team RAW Divas defeated Team SmackDown Divas. Your sole survivor: Beth Phoenix. Maryse put on a pretty strong showing in this one.
The Undertaker defeated The Big Show in a casket match. In a unique finish, Show destroyed the first casket, but when a second casket was brought out, he stood it up on it’s side. The Undertaker whipped Show into it, sending it crashing to the ground with Show inside, the lid closing behind him.
Team Orton defeated Team Batista. Your sole survivors: Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes. Orton blind tagged Rhodes when Batista had him up for a Batista Bomb. The Legend Killer dropped the unsuspecting Batista with an RKO for the victory.
Edge defeated Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov in a triple threat match to win the WWE Championship. Yes, you read that right, Edge won the WWE Championship. Storyline wise, Jeff Hardy was assaulted in his hotel and rendered unable to compete in the match. The match started off as a singles match between Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov. After a hard fought fight, Triple H dropped Kozlov with a Pedigree, though he was too out of it to make the cover. Vickie Guerrero game out on the stage and announced that it’s going to be a triple threat after all, because “he’s here!” “He” turned out to be Edge, who came out and speared Triple H. Before he could make the cover though, Jeff Hardy came out and attacked him. Hardy swung with a chair, missing Edge and connecting with The Game, followed by a shot for the Moscow Mauler. When he went to swing for Edge, he ate a spear instead. Edge covered Triple H for the three and won the WWE Championship!
John Cena def. Chris Jericho to win the World Heavyweight Championship. After the match, Cena celebrated with his family in the crowd before walking up the ramp triumphant as the new World Heavyweight Championship.
Looks like we’ve got a good week of WWE programming in store for us this week!
