By Shaun Best – Rajah.com Reporter
Here’s what went down on YouTube, Facebook and WWE.com just before Survivor Series on PPV!
Team Ziggler ridiculed Team Foley and the Miz backstage, with Dolph Ziggler labelling him “the biggest quitter this company has ever seen.” Ziggler confirmed Cody Rhodes’s absence and named the “strong and smart” David Otunga as his replacement, to collective groans galore. Alberto Del Rio said he’d lead the team after Ziggler is eliminated in the first five minutes. Wade Barrett stated his case for being a leader and the team teased dissension, as Ziggler called for a united front.

Truth said Little Jimmy wasn’t there and gave a serious interview, promising to bring the title back to the U.S. Josh stated that Truth denied the existence of Little Jimmy. Truth said Little Jimmy was simply in the bathroom and made Josh apologise to him.
