Read the excerpt below from WWE.com:

INDIANAPOLIS — The 26th annual Survivor Series kicked off with a bonus Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Calling the action were JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler — who were behind the announce table together for the first time. ( PHOTOS)

In one corner, the high-flying duo of Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara paired with the muscle of big Brodus Clay and the ultra-athletic Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel. The other squad included the boastful Prime Time Players — Titus O’Neil & Darren Young — with the hard-hitting Tensai and the dynamic pairing of Primo & Epico.

To win the style bout, one team needed to eliminate all members of the opposing team by either pinfall, submission, count-out or disqualification. After being eliminated, a Superstar had to return to the locker room.

When the action began, Kidd and Epico tangled first. As the battle waged, Sin Cara held his ground against the opposing team as long as he could before Clay came in to clean house. Then mayhem ensued with Superstars flying from the ring to the arena floor!

As chaos continued, the only two Superstars left in the ring were Clay and Tensai, who showed no hesitation in slamming their massive bodies into each other. But it was Tensai who got the better of Clay, pinning him for the first elimination.

Next, Gabriel got the pinfall over Tensai, who retaliated by absolutely leveling Gabriel to the canvas.

With Tensai gone, the bout was even at four-on-four. Next, Kidd rolled up O’Neil for the pinfall and elimination. For another elimination, Kidd made Epico tap out to the Sharpshooter.

After Kidd battled with Primo, Mysterio came charging in to continue taking the fight to Primo, rolling him up for the pinfall.

With the bout now four-on-one, Young did his best to fight for his survival, but it was a blistering 619 from Mysterio that started a pummeling of Young from the opposing team that he could not recover from.

To seal the victory for his squad, Mysterio dropped the dime on Young for the pinfall.
