10 Fascinating WWE Survivor Series 2009 Facts

Triple-threats, elimination matches, and Chris Jericho confirming his native city.


The 2009 Survivor Series is one of those shows that could stand to enjoy a little more love. After a summer and fall filled with one awful Monday Night RAW guest host after another, the company managed to string together a few pretty dang good pay-per-views, perhaps as a "make-good" for the insipid weekly programming. Survivor Series 2009 was part of that care package.

Today, the most memorable part of the show was a bit of improv on the part of Chris Jericho. After a ringsider grunts, "Go back to Toronto!" at Y2J, Jericho responds, "I'm from Winnipeg, you idiot!", all the while dragging Undertaker like a heavy piece of furniture. Welcome to the age of fleeting amusement taken to extremes.

In addition to that sassy comeback, the 2009 show boasted much enjoyment, from Kofi Kingston's greatest moment of shine (pre-New Day), to Batista devouring Rey Mysterio like a wounded woodland creature. The elimination matches featured teams that made sense, and the classic Survivor Series flavor was evident. The WWE and World Title triple threats solidified the 2009 Survivor Series as a thumbs-up event, even if the show is sadly lost to history for one reason or another.

Here are ten facts about the 2009 Survivor Series you may not have known.
