Thanksgiving used to be one of the biggest nights of the year for the WWE. That’s the night they used to hold the Survivor Series Pay-Per-View. The WWE may have done away with Thanksgiving night show, but for fans in the Louisville area, you can still catch some non-stop action thanks to IWA Mid-South.
IWA-MS has a killer card lined up this week for your post-turkey entertainment, starting with the legendary Chris Hero facing the IWA-Mid South (or is it the D1W?) champion Tracy Smothers.
Rachael Ellering will also be in town Thursday night facing Randi West.
Other matches on the card include:
Ian Rotten vs. “The Chairman” Joey Owens;
The Rejects (John Wayne Murdoch and Nick Depp) and JC Rotten VS “Marvelous” Mitch Ryder, “Legendary” Larry D and “the Real Deal” Derek Neal in a Triple Dog Collar Six Man Tag;
A Lone Survivor match featuring Team Cole Radrick (Cole Radrick, Andrew Hunter, Brother Reed, Tripp Cassidy plus one more member) VS Team Johnathan Wolf (Johnathan Wolf, “Category 5” Corey Storm, Mickey Muscles, Aidan Blackhart plus one more member);
“Hybrid Monster” Zodiak vs. “The Mouth of the Mid South” Mance Warner;
Malcolm Monroe III vs. Travis Titan
Bell time is 7:30 at Jammerz Rollerdrome in Clarksville, Indiana.

I know it doesn’t make any sense. I know it’s completely wrong and shouldn’t have happened.
I don’t care.
More specifically – the Dad in me doesn’t care.
I know Goldberg got a ton of money to do that match, but I also can tell that was never his motivation for coming back. He did it for his son. He did it so his son could see what his Dad did in his heyday.
They could have booked this in a way that “makes sense.” They could have evened the score between the two and kept building up Lesnar. They could have made Goldberg do the honors in front of his kid. Instead, they let Goldberg show his son exactly how he became one of the biggest stars in the industry.
I know they have now completely messed up the Monster Lesnar angle. I just don’t care. I am so happy they let Goldberg have that moment with his kid.
The mark in me will deal with it. The Dad in me couldn’t be happier.
Sunday is a can’t miss pay-per-view for many reasons.
For one, you’re going to see a new champion crowned. Someone who has never held the belt will walk out of Survivor series as world champion. It could be Kevin Owens. It could be Dean Ambrose. It could be Roman Reigns.
Reigns is the odds on favorite, but if he’s not your man, that’s no reason to skip this Sunday! The same people booing Roman are the ones who have been chanting, “Anyone but Cena,” for years. If those fans don’t turn up this Sunday, you know what to expect come Royal Rumble time.
The WWE will be watching the numbers very carefully this weekend. If the numbers are good, you will see more of Reigns, but you will also see more of Owens, Ambrose, Cesaro, Neville, the Wyatts, the New Day, and the rising stars of the WWE.
And if you’re one of those who have been chanting, “We want Sasha,” show up early for the pre-show and watch her. WWE watches those numbers too.
History will be made this weekend. Tune in and show you’re ready for what comes next.
John Cena is out for two months. Every time he’s out, the ratings drop. This in spite of all the “Cena sucks” and “Anybody but Cena” mantras of the Internet wrestling fans.
If you’re ready to “move on” from John Cena, it’s time to prove it.
Do not miss Raw and Smackdown. Watch them again on Hulu and DVR.
Do not miss the pay-per-views that air while he is gone.
Above all, show support for your next guy. You don’t like Roman Reigns? Fine. Buy a shirt to support KO, Ambrose, Ryback, Cesaro, Rollins, Ziggler. Whomever your guy is, put your money where your mouth is. That’s really how the WWE pays attention to whom they need to push.
Reality is, Cena’s a once in a generation star. There are some very talented guys waiting in the wings to take his spot right now, but I’m not sure there’s any one guy yet ready to fill his shoes. The time is coming he won’t want to lace them up as often, but if the ratings plunge like normal, you can expect another major Cena push all the way through Wrestlemania!
