Survivor Series was the 4th and the last PPV of WWF in 1992. The PPV took place in tough circumstances as 3 wrestlers (British Bulldog, Ultimate Warrior & The Mountie) who were going to be part of the show were gone from the company just before the event. It was still a decent PPV, carried by the main event. What about the other matches? Find out in this post.
8. The Undertaker vs. Kamala (Coffin Match)
After a horrible match at SummerSlam, Undertaker and Kamala continued their bad feud as they wrestled each other in a coffin match at Survivor Series. I can’t really seem to decide which match is actually worse. Perhaps, this one because it was longer. Undertaker won the match to put an end to this feud. (DUD)
7. Big Boss Man vs. Nailz (Nightstick On A Pole Match)
The two had been feuding for a long time and it finally ended here in an awful match. The “on the pole” stipulation is already stupid to begin with and Nailz is a horrible wrestler so obviously it ended up being a bad match. But at least it was short and the crowd went nuts when Boss Man got the night stick so at the end the feud worked. (1/2*)
6. Yokozuna vs. Virgil
This was Yokozuna’s PPV debut in WWF. There’s not much to talk about here, since this was just a 3 minute squash to help put Yokozuna over. He was going to win the Royal Rumble 2 months later, so it makes total sense. The squash was entertaining for the time it lasted. (*)
5. Tatanka vs. Rick Martel
When the two men wrestled at WrestleMania earlier in the year, I had wished their match was longer. This time, the two got 11 minutes, but they couldn’t really deliver. I expected more a lot from this match as Martel was a solid wrestler and Tatanka had also shown promise. However, the match was pretty boring and should have been shorter if they wanted to have this kind of a match. Tatanka went over which is logical as they were building him up as a solid midcard guy. (*1/2)
4. The Natural Disasters and The Nasty Boys vs. Money Inc. and The Beverly Brothers (4-on-4 Survivor Series Elimination Match)
I feel bad for Ted Dibiase and IRS once again as they had to be part of this. Seriously, this was such a boring match. I would say this is one of the worst Survivor Series elimination matches I have ever seen. Throughout the match, I just wanted it to end quickly. The babyface team of Natural Disasters and Nasty Boys won. Wow…. (*3/4)
3. High Energy vs. The Headshrinkers
To start off, I wanna say that if you haven’t seen Headshrinkers, please check them out, their matches very really good. Coming back to this match, it was a very fun tag match to open the show. Owen’s comeback was good but I wish it was longer. The Headshrinkers should have obviously won anyway but it would have made the match even better. (**1/2)
2. Mr. Perfect & Randy Savage vs. Razor Ramon & Ric Flair
This was the most promoted and built up match heading into the show. Originally, Randy Savage’s partner was The Ultimate Warrior, but due to his name coming in steroid abuse, he was fired from WWF and Mr. Perfect took his place. The tag match was obviously a good match given the talent involved. It could have been better, but I still think all the four men did a great job and it was a treat to watch Mr. Perfect finally back in the ring. The DQ ending however was bad and drags the match down a little. (***1/2)
1. Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels (WWF Championship)
This match was an absolute classic and it’s also very remarkable as these two men went from feuding for the IC title to main eventing a PPV for the WWF Title in the same year. The final few minutes of this match are amazing and put Shawn over even though he lost. This was really a sign of things to come in the future in WWF of how the main event matches would be. I know some people prefer this over their Iron Man match but I still think their Iron Man match was better. This match too however is a definite recommendation to watch and saved the show. (****1/2)
And that’s all for today’s post, thank you all for reading. Stay tuned for the next part of this series where we will take a look at the first PPV of 1993, Royal Rumble. Have a nice day!
