Published Add your comment

We are less than 24 hours removed from the 2015 Survivor Series and the reactions have been heavily mixed to say the least.

Some feel it was the worst PPV of the year while some feel that the ending was up there with one of the best of the year.

The right decision?

The night ended with Roman Reigns finally realising his dream of becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Dean Ambrose in the final of the Championship tournament.

His moment of glory was marred however when Mr Money in the Bank Sheamus cashed in his briefcase and walked away with the title.

It seems like Sheamus has joined the Authority who are once again in control of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

It was the second time a Money in the Bank Briefcase has been cashed in in 2015 and everyone is wondering what led the company to decide to have it happen?

It is always a big decision to crown a new champion and the decision to have Sheamus exchange a briefcase for a title belt, wasn't made much in advance.

According to reports, the WWE were going back and forth with what they were going to have happen at the end of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament.

The decision to out the title on Sheamus however was only made a few hours before last night's event in Atlanta, Georgia.

The WWE selected Sheamus as the new champion over Dean Ambrose or Roman Reigns, but fans lack of satisfaction with the show may have spawned from something else.

Other options

There were plenty of rumours about how the championship tournament was going to end and although Sheamus cashing in was always an option, it was very rarely seen as a popular one.

From the idea of Kevin Owens winning and joining the Authority to a heel turn for either Ambrose or Reigns, there may have been better options for Survivor Series' ending.

Whatever may have been the better option, we now have Sheamus as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and only tonight's episode of RAW will tell us what his title reign will bring.
