Originally written November 16, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
Pre-show match changed; Cody Rhodes update: WWE have changed the Survivor Series pre-show match of Justin Gabriel & Tyson Kidd vs 3-Man-Band, to 3MB vs Santino Marella and Zack Ryder. It’s not clear why the change was made. Heath Slater noted on Twitter: “Looks like our opponents have changed. No worries, #3MB is ready for anyone. Prepare for your face to be melted.” We can assume it’s Jinder Mahal and Heath Slater in the match as Drew McIntyre has been out mourning the death of his mother. As for Cody Rhodes, WWE.com have been teasing that he may need a replacement at Survivor Series for Team Ziggler. “If it turns out he is indeed not cleared or able to compete, though, several Superstars would bring something unique to The Showoff’s Survivor Series tag team. WWE.com has five possible replacements who could help carry Team Ziggler to victory this Sunday.” The possibilities include Ricardo Rodriguez, David Otunga, Tensai, Michael McGillicutty, and Matt Striker. The most likely candidate is Tensai. Rhodes suffered a concussion during this week’s WWE Main Event taping and is awaiting MRI results. Tune in to WWE Survivor Series this Sunday on PPV! ________________________________________________________________________________ New NXT stars get their WWE names: Several new WWE developmental wrestlers have received their names for NXT.
