For the first half of our two parter episode, the focus is on TLC, The Shield's victory of the night, Ryback's third PPV loss in a row, And AJ keeping herself in the main event scene far longer than anyone expect her to be able to. What an impressive run for the girl.

Classy Ring Attire: WWE 13 and Turkey

We're taking the week off this week but that doesn't mean that you have to. Recorded ahead of time, just for you, is this special edition of Classy Ring attire, where we bring on a friend to really discuss (in greater detail than before) some of the pros and cons of WWE's new video game. This means that we have no idea what happend at Survivor Series, but I'm sure we'll get to that once CRA resumes it's regular schedule. But for those that can't wait, there is a written version of the CRA Survivor Series reactions available here

Classy Ring Attire: The Written Word Version (Survivor Series)

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving week, like we mentioned in last week's podcast, we will have a podcast for everyone this week but alas it was pre-recorded seeing as how we knew everyone would be going their separate ways for the holiday. We also mentioned that there will be a post sharing our thoughts about Survivor Series. Well, this is that post and by "our" I mean "mine." So let's get to it, yes?

I didn't watch the pre-show shenanigans, did I miss anything other than Matt Striker's impressive 'stache?

Bonus Elimination Tag Team Match: Brodus Clay, Tyson Kidd, Justin Gabriel & Masked Failure vs. Primo, Epico, Tensai and Prime Time Players

I dug this match, mostly because I enjoy traditional Survivor Series matches and less because of who's in it (usually). That being said, it's weird to say that I like this match when the only thing that really stuck with me days later is how Tensai sandbagged Brodus. I will say that it's interesting that the two big guys were the first to be eliminated. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say that WWE intentionally did that to make up for always favoring the big guys almost always. I'm not saying that because they would need to do a lot more to accomplish that, honestly I just find it...interesting.

Diva's Championship Match: Eve(c) vs Kaitlyn('s Boobs)
I liked a Diva match? I believe this would have been the right time to put the belt on Kaitlyn but who are we kidding? It's the Diva's division so her spot on the championship rotation will come up in a month or so. That being said, I really dug Kaitlyn's new ring attire as well as the gut buster finisher.

US Championship Match: Antonio Cesaro(c) vs R-Hooch
I promise I won't go on another rant about how badly Cesaro needs a new gimmick and I promise I won't remind everyone about how Truth needs to go back to heel. I just won't do neither of those things because we've talked about it for so long and I just can't do that to my audience right now. You all deserve better, much like we deserve Cesaro with a new gimmick and having R-Heel, but I'm not gonna mention those things.

It seems taboo to be complaining about a segment that leads to AJ being on my TV but we really didn't need scandal update. The only real purpose that it served was to bring out Tamina. There are better ways, friends, so much better.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Big Show(c) vs Sheamus
Once again, a decent match between these two. The recent trend for rivalry matches is that the 2nd PPV match is more of a story-telling match and this is no exception. The story that was suppose to be delivered was that it takes a lot of put Sheamus. Not a very original message seeing as how that was beat over our heads during the Del Rio program. The chaotic ending was to make it feel like the match was incomplete and will carry on towards TLC so maybe that's when we will see everything fall apart.

Survivor Series Elimination Match: Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, David Otunga, Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio vs Team Friendship, Randy Orton, The Miz, Kofi Kingston
How fun was this match? I believe Joel and myself both agree that this match may end up in our list of top matches for the year. It seemed like every person in the match had their own moment were they elevated the match for a time before essentially handing it off to the next guy. I actually like Del Rio in this match, he had some high moments and actually put a big effort into carrying the match at the right times. Also, who would've guessed  Ziggler cleanly pinning Orton in for the final pin? Great signs for what is in the future of Ziggler and just maybe we will finally see him cash the briefcase in soon.

Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship: CM Punk(c) vs John Cena vs Ryback:
This match had some pretty cool moments in it like Cena actually squaring off against Ryback and Cena and Punk briefly joining forces to try to take Ryback out. Sure, we would've always liked to see Punk win cleanly but then we wouldn't have Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and the other guy so I'm gonna let this slide.

Well does it for me, hope everybody is enjoying their Thanksgiving. Look out for our special podcast for this week and we will be back with our regular-scheduled Classy Ring Attire next week.

Classy Ring Attire: Get Punk in the Main Event!

With Survivor Series just around the corner we do our monthly predictions on who might win each scheduled match on the card. Then with the rumor that CM Punk might be in the final match at WrestleMania next year, we ponder and guess what mach involving Punk could merit the final slot on the biggest event of the year.

Classy Ring Attire: And he shall be called Ref McDreamy.

This week we discuss the fallout from referee interference that took place at Hell in a Cell. We talk about Survivor Series and the changing of the matches. We dare to suggest that Punk's promo from last year may have had a problem (slight, slight problem) and learn all about the journey into the fabulous world of WWE books

Classy Ring Attire: Chris makes "Hell in a Cell" faces.

With a PPV that Chris says may be in his Top Five (Joel prefers Top Six) We talk about everything from the lowest of the lows (Unannounced tag team match) to the highest of the highs (which I guess would be the top of the cell)
And then it's on to the realm of video games where our heroes give their first reactions to the new WWE 13. Come for the witty banter, stay to help Joel answer the Lita question he ponders.

Classy Ring Attire: The Trainwreck that is FaKane!

We recorded this episode a day early and apparently that was enough to ruin everything. EVERYTHING! Chris Can't do math. Joel can't remember the outro. We spend way, way too much time trying to remember when Johnny Nitro took place, and all of that involves references to Batman, Duck Tales, and the recurring topic of what to call a fake Kane to team up with UnderFaker.

Classy Ring Attire: From the Cell to WrestleMania

So Ryback is up for number one contender. And what does that mean. For those of us who know the future (and in this case that's all of us) we know that the Rock is coming back in January. And we question what that means. What that means for Ryback. What it means for Punk. We also take a look at the title scene. As in all of them. From the hypothetical internet champion, through US and Intercontinental, all the way up to WWE Champion. Joel also pines for a return of the hardcore championship.

Classy Ring Attire: Weekend at Sheamus's

It's the state of the WWE address. Lots about Punk in there including a DVD, and the punching of people. (non in ring people) We get to see Vince in the ring, and while R-Truth may have toned down the crazy much to our dispair, it looks like Mr. McMahon's crazy is all still there.
