-Ross on Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns: "The inclusion of the NXT talents into the equation intrigues me and I'm anxious to see how these three, talented young men evolve on WWE programming over the next several weeks. @WWERollins, @TheDeanAmbrose, and @RomanReigns all have something viable to contribute but, as usual, it will depend on how they continue to invest in their game and maximize their 'playing time.' Bottom line, WWE has brought three, potentially viable talents into the mix in an impactful manner which I find refreshing. I've seen all three of these young, NXT talents enough to know that their in ring skills are, by and large, solid and that they all possess the necessary personalities to contribute to WWE for years to come. This trio's introduction was one of the brightest aspects of the Survivor Series for me."
Powell's POV: It's definitely the major talking point coming out of the pay-per-view for online fans. Raw is key for the duo as you only get one chance to make a first impression, and the majority of Raw viewers didn't see the pay-per-view on Sunday night. I'm looking forward to seeing how their Raw debut goes more than anything in wrestling right now.
-Ross on C.M. Punk vs. Ryback vs. John Cena: "Biggest match of the night as far as the promotion was concerned was the WWE Title Bout featuring @CMPunk, @JohnCena, and @Ryback22. It seemed that this match accomplished several things including getting Punk to becoming a 365 day WWE Champion and on an apparent, collision course to meet the @TheRock at the Royal Rumble, or so it seems. That could always change between now and then considering that WWE could shock us with a TLC PPV ending that would surprise."
Powell's POV: I hope WWE doesn't pull a late shift away from Punk vs. Rock in January. I'd be very surprised if they did. I'm curious to see where Punk goes from here. It seems as though Ryback is sidetracked with the NXT trio. Does that set up another Punk vs. Cena match? Is there merit to the Punk vs. Mick Foley rumors?
-Ross on Big Show vs. Sheamus: "@WWESheamus vs. @WWETheBigShow was the closest thing to an old school match on the PPV. I love their pacing as I'm not into today's, microwave, move a second mind set on which some fans embrace. Sheamus' chair shot attack on Show was memorable and straight from Idaho. I'm a fan of this rivalry."
Powell's POV: I'm with Ross on this rivalry. Their match at Hell in a Cell was WrestleMania worthy. Last night's match was one of the better matches on the card, and Sheamus's repeated chair shots on Show seems to set up the obvious rematch in a chair match at TLC.
