Ranking Every WWE Survivor Series Main Event From Worst To Best

28. Randy Orton Vs The Big Show (2013)

27 Goldberg Brock Lesnar Survivor Series

Defined more by who wasn't in the match than was, The Big Show and Randy Orton had a match even blatant architect of it Vince McMahon must have found hard to love.

Trapped at the wrong end of the Daniel Bryan de-push in 2013, Show was pinching his catchphrases but none of his heat. He wasn't the babyface fans wanted, rendering Orton a heel nobody cared to boo. It would have been more catastrophic had it not been completely in keeping with every bit of post-SummerSlam booking the company apathetically attempted.
