Really? I can understand not liking these shows, but they each had a match on them that was MILES better than just about anything on filler shows like Battleground.

I had battleground before adding survivor series, I may have already deleted every memory of battleground from my head, but i still think the RR was the worst of the year

Did you really hate it that much? At least there was an awesome match on it, and to be honest, I actually look back on it fondly at this point because of the crowd reaction and what it did (not saying things started there, but I think that's when WWE REALLY realized that they had to make a change).
