While Stephanie preferred to expound on the virtues of their being in charge, the outspoken Y2J and the WWE Universe seemed more interested poking fun at the power couple - as well as what would happen if WWE’s head honchos lost their  Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match against Team Cena and were ousted from power.

Eventually, The Game had enough of Jericho and, after taking his longtime adversary to task, the WWE power couple elected to make their exit. The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla would send them off in style, leading the crowd in a humiliating rendition of “Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye.”

See a "light" in the darkness

As the dust cleared, The Eater of Worlds once again addressed The Lunatic Fringe, his absentee father and the “darkness” that he believes consumes his adversary’s life. As Wyatt pleaded with Ambrose to accept him as the light, he emerged. Rather than run off, however, Wyatt continued his taunting and eventually reentered the ring to engage the focus of his torment. Though Ambrose knocked his ominous foe back to the ringside floor, Wyatt was still playing his mind games as he made his exit.

Later, the “New Face of Fear” launched a  sneak attack on Ambrose as he was conducting a backstage interview.

The awesome contest that followed saw everything from a double suplex to a Cesaro Swing to a powerbomb delivered on top of a superplex to a combination Sharpshooter-Crossface. Kidd would ultimately triumph in the first fall, capitalizing on Ziggler’s Zig Zag of Cesaro to pin The King of Swing.

Then, as the already intense showdown went into overdrive to determine the second fall, Ziggler hit a second Zig Zag for the incredible victory.

Ryback def. Kane by Disqualification

Ryback vs. Corporate Kane: SmackDown, November 14, 2014

Triple H sends Corporate Kane to take out Ryback.

Amid a sea of Survivor Series controversy, the “hottest free agent in WWE” Ryback battled Corporate Kane in SmackDown’s main event — with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon looking on.

"Wrecking Ball" wreaks havoc

The action came to a sudden halt, though, when WWE’s Director of Operations brought a chair into the action, forcing the referee to call for the bell. But Ryback would reclaim the advantage, using a spinebuster to set up a chair counter-assault on his Big Red opponent.

The Human Wrecking Ball then engaged in a staredown with Triple H on the apron, a silent conflict that nearly turned violent before WWE’s COO opted to back away.
