MATCH : Team Kofi Kingston v Team Randy Orton


EVENT : Survivor Series 2009

VENUE : Washington DC

DATE : 22nd November 2009

STIPULATION : 10 Man Elimination Tag Match

BACKGROUND : Kofi Kingston and Randy Orton had been feuding over the last few weeks on TV and because of this it was decided that each man would pick a team to face off against each other at Survivor Series. Kingston's team consisted of ECW Champion Christian, Mark Henry, R-Truth and MVP whilst Orton enlisted the help of his two protégés Ted Dibiase Jr and Cody Rhodes and also CM Punk and William Regal. To add fuel to the fire CM Punk and R-Truth had also been having a heated fued whilst Christian and Regal had been feuding over the ECW Title. So would this match settle all these scores?

MATCH REVIEW : This unfortunately was the peak of Kofi Kingston's push and even though he managed to defeat both CM Punk and Randy Orton to win the match for his team the rise was never really continued. In saying that, this was a terrific match and a great way to push a star (even if they didn't capitalise on it). Punk was terrific as was Christian and Kingston. A very good Survivor Series that got the crowd highly invested from start to finish.
