Welcome to WrestlingObserver.com's coverage of the 2015 Survivor Series from the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. The show is headlined by the Undertaker and Kane vs. two members of the Wyatt Family alongside the semi-finals and finals of the WWE World Heavyweight Title tournament. In the semi-finals, Roman Reigns faces the newly-returned Alberto Del Rio, while Kevin Owens faces Dean Ambrose.
We're looking for your thoughts on tonight's show so you can leave a thumbs up, thumbs down or thumbs in the middle along with a best and worst match to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The undercard features Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyler Breeze, and the women's division is represented by Paige facing off with Charlotte for Charlotte's Divas Title. Their show-closing Raw storyline put a spotlight on the show that otherwise wasn't there, so they'll probably be motivated to have a great match and make people forget that whole thing ever happened.

ELIMINATION MATCH: NEVILLE & TITUS O'NEIL & GOLDUST & DUDLEYS VS. THE MIZ & BO DALLAS & STARDUST & THE ASCENSION
Decent match, nothing special. Cesaro was originally to be in this ten-man opener, but Titus replaced him.
1) Goldust pinned Viktor in 32 seconds with a powerslam
2) Bubba Ray Dudley pinned Konnor with a uranage
3) Dallas used the Bodog on Neville and then Miz tagged in and used the Skull Crushing Finale for the pin
4) Goldust pinned Miz almost immediately with a schoolboy
5) O'Neil pinned Dallas with the Clash of the Titus
6) This left Stardust against O'Neil, Goldust and the Dudleys Stardust tried to walk out for the count out. O'Neil blocked his way. He gave Goldust an elbow and then ran away from Goldust into the ring right into a 3-D by the Dudleys and Devon pinned Cody to win, so the face team won 5-1.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL: ROMAN REIGNS VS. U.S. CHAMPION ALBERTO DEL RIO
Really good match, better than you'd think from these two. Easily Del Rio's best match since he's returned. A lot of near falls, including a spear into a kick by Del Rio at one point after Del Rio missed the double foot stomp and sold his knee. The finish saw Del Rio come off the top, but Reigns moved and hit him with the spear.
Reigns and Ambrose were backstage. Reigns said it's going to be best friends fighting for the WWE title. Kevin Owens showed up and said," Reigns always comes close and Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt stopped him from winning the title and now I'm beating your little buddy Dean and you're going to come this close again but tonight's the Kevin Owens show." The crowd cheered that a lot. Reigns said Owens is a guy who runs his mouth but he's going to go out to the ring and get his ass whipped by Ambrose.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL: DEAN AMBROSE VS. INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION KEVIN OWENS
Another really good match. Amborse used a tope, then a second one and Owens dumped him on the announcers table. In the ring, Owens used two superkicks, went for the pop up power bomb but Ambose reversed into a huracanrana, and followed with Dirty Deeds for the pin.
So the finals, as expected is Reigns vs. Ambrose.
ELIMINATION MATCH: TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE NEW DAY & KING BARRETT & SHEAMUS VS. LUCHA DRAGONS & USOS & RYBACK
1) Sin Cara pinned Barrett with a senton into the ring
2) Kingston & Woods double-teamed and pinned Jimmy Uso
3) Sheamus pinned Sin Cara with a brogue kick
4) Jey Uso pinned E with a splash off the top rope
5) Woods & Kingston left with Big E, who was acting like he was injured6) This left Sheamus alone with Kalisto, Ryback and Jey. They went a long time until Jey hit a superkick on Sheamus, Kalisto used huracanrana and Ryback pinned him after the shell shock.
Match was good. Last fall went too long with the story they were telling, kind of died off. The crowd loved the New Day so that was part of it as they lost interest after they left.
DIVAS CHAMPION CHARLOTTE VS. PAIGE
They gave them time to have the kind of match they'd have in NXT. It was good. The highlight was Charlotte spearing Paige with her running on the barricade tackling Paige, standing on the barricade, to the floor. Charlotte won clean via submission with the figure eight.
Dean Ambrose said we knew this day would come and tonight I'm going to fight my brother, I'd give him the shirt off my back but he isn't going to pay the bills Reigns came out and said usually I'd give you a hug but today's not about hugs. They fist bumped.
DOLPH ZIGGLER VS. TYLER BREEZE
This was all about getting Breeze over. Short match that they rushed through with Breeze winning with the unprettier. As far as execution went, very good, but it felt from the start like they were rushing through.
UNDERTAKER & KANE VS. BRAY WYATT & LUKE HARPER
They took out Erick Rowan before the match. Wyatt & Harper did the match with Strowman in the corner. The match was all about putting Undertaker over. The crowd was more into this than any match on the show. Undertake & Kane choke slammed Strowman onto the announcers table. In the ring, Undertaker & Kane did a double sit up. Undertaker choke slammed Wyatt and Kane choke slammed Harper and then Undertaker pinned Harper after a tombstone piledriver. Not a great match but it was good as a showcase. They teased this may be the last time Undertaker & Kane are a tag team.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS: ROMAN REIGNS VS. DEAN AMBROSE
They rushed through a 9:00 final. Each kicked out of the others big move until Reigns hit a second spear and got the clean pin. It's early so we may have an angle coming. Really good while it lasted.
HHH came out while they had the pyro and confetti going, and came out to congratulate Reigns. Reigns wouldn't shake his hand and speared him. Sheamus came out from behind, and gave Reigns a brogue kick but Reigns kicked out. He hit Reigns with a second brogue kick and pinned him so Sheamus ends the show as WWE Champion, shaking hands and hugging HHH.
