MATCH : The Authority Team v Team Cena

PROMOTION : WWE

EVENT : Survivor Series 2014

VENUE : Scottrade Center, St Louis, Missouri

DATE : 23rd November 2014

STIPULATION : 10 Man Elimination Tag Match


BACKGROUND : Once John Cena decided to reject The Authorities recruitment attempts a feud escalated between Cena and The Authority led by Triple H. A 10 man elimination match was set up with the stipulation being that if The Authority lost then they would lose all their power in the WWE but if Cena's team lost then all of Cena's team-mates would be fired with immediate affect. The Authority team was made up of captain Seth Rollins, Kane, Luke Harper, Mark Henry and Rusev. Joining Cena was Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback. So with a lot at stake who would get the upper hand in this battle?...

MATCH REVIEW : This was a terrific Survivor Series elimination match! The match had a few twists and turns which worked and ended on a great note as a wrestling legend finally debuts in the WWE. Sting made his first ever appearance in the WWE to defend Cena's team which set up his match with Triple H at Wrestlemania 31. The best thing about the match was how they pushed Dolph Ziggler into the spotlight and gave him the win. The fans were right behind that decision and it's a shame that one year on from this event and nothing has come of that push! Altogether a good match where every member of both teams played their part excellently.
