Drew McIntyre gets a chance to win back the WWE title, tonight. He did get the crap beaten out of him by Jimmy Uso, last Friday. Plus, the Hurt Business gets to go after New Day for the tag belts.

Drew McIntyre came out, looking ready for war. I wnat to welcome our family friend, Tammy, to tonight’s show. She helped me when Mama Dee tok a bad fall on Monday afternoon and she is much appreciated.

We saw how Drew took out Jimmy, lat week. Drew welcomed everyone to the show and brought up Thanksgiving. Drew was thankful for the fans and for the doubters. They make him work harder and believe in himself. Drew brought up Roman Reigns and how he has his head up his arse.

Randy Orton interrupted and ran down what he is thankful for. Randy was thankful that hte fine he got for roughing up Adam Pearce didn’t faze him.

Styles knew it was going to be a tough road for them, because of their differences. Styles pushed that all five of them hate to lose. Styles wanted them to battle Retribution to become a team.

The Funhouse is back!

Survivor Series holds a special place in my heart. 12 years ago, Linda bought me the PPV in advance. She died the day before the show and I had to watch it alone. This year, the show takes place on the 12th anniversary of her death. I know she will be right beside me, cheering on the good guys and callingt he bad guys all kinds of names. Smile. Gone but NEVER forgotten.
