It was the 30th edition of the storied event.

It was a night of suspense, pageantry and moments that will be talked about for a lifetime. The 30 edition of the WWE Survivor Series has concluded, but not without a certain degree of outrage from the WWE Universe, some of whom are still scratching their heads in disbelief, at the outcome of the match that was billed as a "mega match."

Of course, we're talking about the highly anticipated main event bout between Brock Lesnar, and the returning Goldberg. 

One look through my social media feeds would lead you to believe it was the professional wrestling version of Armageddon last night. Many fans expected to see Goldberg and Lesnar rip each other to shreds, in a match worthy of main eventing Wrestlemania, or at least we thought so.

However, once the bell rang, it was as simple as 1-2-3.....1. Spear, 2. Spear, 3. Jackhammer and that was it. At 1 minute, 25 seconds, Goldberg sent shockwaves throughout the entire world of sports entertainment.

At the end of the day, there were a lot of fans upset with the show. Once again, some are threatening to cancel their WWE Network subscription. Here's a small word of advice, just do it! Don't talk about it anymore, just log in and cancel your Network subscription, problem solved.

But, I must admit, that show was far from being as horrid as they want you to believe. In fact, this year's Rumble was fantastic. It was a knockout in every sense of the term, and I'm going to tell you why. Here are my five reasons why this year's Survivor Series was not only a massive success but possibly the greatest Survivor Series ever!

#5 The Miz

The Miz retains, bringing the Intercontinental Title back to Smackdown

Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for everyone to humbly accept the fact that The Miz is a star. Not only that, but he's a champion. A great champion, and one who is worthy of carrying the Intercontinental Championship. He has indeed elevated the status of the title to an entirely new level, and he should be commended for doing so.

I understand that everyone adores Sami Zayn and rightfully so. But, his time will come. As for now, the Intercontinental Title belongs to The Miz, and he and Maryse are at the top of their game, with no signs of slowing down.
