Last night Survivor Series 2014 dawned on us and to be honest, I was not very excited about it. The card just did not have enough going on for me. It seemed like the main even of The Authority versus Team John Cena was contrived and overbooked to death. Whatever the case, I was pleasantly surprised. Here are five things that made the Survivor Series far better than I ever dreamed possible:

1. It was free!

Anytime you get something for free, your expectations come down to more reasonable levels. This was the case last night as I was looking for something to like about it. I found plenty.

2. Triple H finally is out of power.

Though Team Authority lost and Trips and Steph are no longer in “control” you had better believe that Triple H will still be front and center in the spotlight. In this case, I don’t mind so much because it will be for a very good reason…

3. Sting finally arrives.

The Stinger came in and made a huge splash at Survivor Series, finally debuting in a WWE ring. When Vince McMahon made the comment that we would never forget this PPV, he was not joking around. The event was fantastic.

4. The Divas were pretty solid.

The Survivor Series style match was certainly rough, but they told the story and made it work. The talent level is so much higher than it has been in recent years. All they need is some time in the ring and on camera. If they ever get that, they will develop into a pretty interesting part of the product. Brie and Nikki Bella have found a pretty good niche. Hopefully they will run with this and take the next step.

5. Dolph Ziggler was finally booked awesomely.

In year’s past, John Cena would be the Superman that hulked his way through the impossible odds. This year, they listened to the crowds each week and made that superstar Dolph. He truly is a special talent and if they play their cards right, he can be even bigger. Last night was a great step in the right direction.
