Team Cena vs. Team Authority (Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match)
After John Cena rejected The Authority’s advances to become their chosen one, Triple H & Stephanie McMahon responded with a challenge, daring the Cenation leader to assemble a team to face their hand-chosen squad in a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match on Nov. 23.
What The Authority wasn’t bargaining for, however, was that WWE CEO Mr. McMahon would later add an all-important wrinkle to ceremonies: If Team Authority loses, Triple H & Stephanie will be ousted from power!
The teams began to take shape on the Nov. 3 Raw as Team Authority officially named Seth Rollins and Kane to its ranks, as well as offered spots to Rusev and Mark Henry. Neither The Super Athlete nor The World’s Strongest Man has publicly accepted the invitation yet.
In addition to the 15-time World Champion himself, Team Cena has officially one member, reigning Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler. Though Triple H & Stephanie have insisted Superstars will be free to join Team Cena, the powerful couple’s tactics tell a different story: After Ziggler was seen talking to Cena backstage on the Oct. 27 Raw, The Showoff became targeted by Authority henchman Kane.
Who else will Cena and The Authority choose to join them in the ultimate form of team combat, the Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match? Who will be left standing tall at WWE’s fall-time tradition, and will The Authority lose its grip on WWE when the dust settles?
