( - The Survivor Series (SS) Pay Per View (PPV) is a thing of the past, and now it is time to prepare for the Tables, Ladders and Chairs (TLC) PPV that you truly need to get momentum going. This SmackDown was rather average, even with  showcasing the new faction knows at the League of Nations.

Some things I still need to happen in the WWE Universe:

  1. Bring back the Cruiser Weight Division
  2. Make all the matches mean something to some sort of belt or rivalry.  
  3. Show more of the roster.  You guys recycle the same talent too much.
  4. You may wish to consider bringing the Diva's division full circle and have them with Tag Title belts, lightweight belts, etc. 
  5. The Tag Team Division is starting to look better than the singles division.  Get more people graduated from NXT and get that division showcased more. 

Here are the highlights of the show:

Air Date: Thursday, December 3, 2015
Location: Hershey, PA
Commentators:  Booker T, Rich Brennan and Jerry "The King" Lawler

New rating scale:  1- Forgettable match; 2 - Normal/average; 3 - Good match; 4- Potential classic

The cheat notes (For a full recap, watch the proceeding video after the cheat notes):

  • Tyler Breeze gets a pin victory on Neville when Summer Rae distracts Neville with a leg pull - Match Rating (MR): 2

  • Brie Bella gets a disqualification victory over Becky Lynch when Charlotte attacks Brie even though Becky had Brie in a submission hold in the middle of the ring - MR: 2




  • The New Day VS The Uso & Dean Ambrose for the right to help Roman Reigns face The League of Nations tonight.  All was going against the New Day until Jimmy Uso aggravated his knee injury from RAW.  Xavier Woods takes advantage.  The New Day with a pin victory and Roman Reigns has to fight the League of Nations in a 4 on 1 handicap match - MR: 2



  • Devon Dudley is defeated by Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family decides to beat up on Team 3D and Tommy Dreamer after the match.  Tommy Dreamer is given a running spear through a table - MR: 2

  • The League of Nations is outlasted by Roman Reigns in a 4 on 1 handicap match.  Roman Reigns was able to outsmart his competitors by taking a long fight to the outside of the ring and then get into the ring before the ref counted to 10.  Roman Reigns with a count out victory - MR: 2
