Non-Televised Match (SMDN)
The Brian Kendrick

Notes: Funaki got a beatdown after.

Match #1 - Survivor Series Match (INTER)
Shawn Michaels*
JTG
Shad Gaspar
Rey Mysterio*
The Great Khali*

w/Ranjin Singh
def. John "Bradshaw" Layfield
Kane
Montel Vontavious Porter
John Morrison
Mike "Miz" Mizanin
via Pinfall (18:13)
Notes: MVP pinned JTG after the drive-by kick at 1:40. He celebrated a bit too much, because Khali came in and then chopped and elminated him via pinfall at 1:55. Rey Rey went on Khali's shoulders and dove off onto Kane and then pinned him at 3:26. Shad had Miz in check when Morrison ran into the ring, but retreated right away. The distraction was enough to let Miz hit the Reality Check and he pinned Shad at 6:31. Morrison and Miz are a great team. Morrison did an HBK imitation. He was lying down on the mat, did a kick up, and then tried to hit HBK with the elbow drop but missed. Rey Rey pinned Miz at 11:45. Michaels did his kick up later on and then gave Morrison the DX chop to get back at him. JBL and HBK were outside the ring when JBL dodged Sweet Chin Music. The dodge cost him, because as HBK was able to get back into the ring right away, JBL was counted out at 17:54. Morrison, to his credit, was alert, and nearly hit HBK with a superkick of his own. HBK dodged it and put Morrison down with SCM.

Match #2 - Survivor Series Match (INTER)
Beth Phoenix
w/Santino Marella
Mickie James
Kelly Kelly
Candice Michelle
Jillian Hall
def. Michelle McCool
Victoria
Maria Kanellis
Maryse Ouellet
Natalya Neidhart
via Pinfall (9:39)
Notes: This was kind of a mess. Sloppy moves and the crowd didn't seem to care. Kelly Kelly pinned Victoria at 2:54, Maryse pinned Kelly Kelly at 3:22, Mickie James pinned McCool after a slight altercation with Maria at 5:06, Maryse pinned Mickie at 5:26, Candice pinned Natalya at 6:45, Maria pinned Jillian at 7:43, Candice pinned Maria at 7:54, Maryse made Candice tap out to a sort of figure-four at 8:26, and Beth finally ended things after the Glam Slam.

Match #3 - Casket Match (SMDN)
The Undertaker def. The Big Show (12:44)
Notes: Undertaker legdropped Show through the ECW announce table. Big show put 'Taker in the casket, but he didn't close it himself. He was telling the refs to do it, but the rule is that the wrestler needs to. And of course, Undertaker stuck a leg out and fought his way back to the ring. Undertaker even chokeslammed Show off the second rope. For whatever reason, Show turned the casket over and looked like he was going to walk out, when some fire erupted out of nowhere blocking the path. Then some druids brought out another casket. Show set it up on it's end, and Undertaker eventually tossed him into it, and it fell over, closing the lid. Not all that great of a match.

Match #4 - Survivor Series Match (INTER)
Randy Orton*
William Regal

w/Layla El
Shelton Benjamin
Cody Rhodes

w/Manu
Mark Henry
w/Tony Atlas
def. Dave Batista
CM Punk
Kofi Kingston
Matt Hardy
R-Truth
via Pinfall (16:13)
Notes: Punk jumped Regal early and hit the GTS. Just like that, he pinned him at 0:12. Layla didn't like that, and threw a shoe at Punk. Shelton pinned Truth at 7:39. Orton pinned Kofi at 10:45, Rhodes pinned Punk at 13:10, Henry pinned Hardy at 14:22, leaving only Batista. Batista was on fire, pinning Henry right away at 14:32 and then Shelton at 15:06. He was Batista-Bombing Cody when Orton made the blind tag. Batista was confused when the ref didn't count the fall on Rhodes, and turned around right into an RKO. Orton pinned Batista for the win. Pretty good match.

Match #5 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Triple Threat Match (SMDN)
Edge
Challenger
def. Triple H
Champion
Vladimir Kozlov
Challenger
via Pinfall (14:21)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Originally a Triple Threat match with Jeff Hardy, it became just a one-on-one match when Jeff Hardy was unable to compete in the match. He was found injured in a stairwell earlier that day. The match became a Triple Threat once again when SMDN GM Vickie Guerrero announced that "He's here!" And she was referring to Edge. Edge came down (sporting a wicked new beard) and speared Trips, but then Jeff Hardy himself came down. Jeff went after Edge first, but ended up hitting Triple H and Vladimir with the chair. Edge speared Jeff before he could fall victim to the chair. Edge pinned Triple H, and that was it. Really bad until Edge showed up. This is the truth...I nodded off a few minutes into it, and woke up again just as Vickie made her announcement and had to rewind.

Match #6 - World Heavyweight Championship (RAW)
John Cena
Challenger
def. Chris Jericho
Champion
via Pinfall (21:19)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- I wish I would've slept through this as well. It wasn't that great, actually. I expected a bit more. Jericho got out of the STFU but then took an FU and it was over. Maybe I just didn't care as much because there was no way that Cena wasn't going to win. And after Cena hugged his family and friends and it was all very sickening.
