WWF held the Survivor Series 1993 on Thanksgiving Eve. The highly promoted matches saw the team of All-Americans take on The Foreign Fanatics, and The Hart Family took on Shawn Michaels and his Knights. Let’s rank all the matches from the show and find out what were the best parts of the show.
5. The Bushwhackers & Men on a Mission vs. Bam Bam Bigelow, The Headshrinkers & Bastion Booger (4-on-4 Survivor Series elimination match)
The match was promoted as Four Doinks taking on the team of Bam Bam, Headshrinkers and Bastion Booger. But we didn’t get the original Doink and instead, the four doinks ended up being The Bushwhackers and Men on a Mission. Seriously who thought this was a good idea to have this kind of match? As soon as I heard The Bushwhackers’ theme, I was sure this was going to be a disaster and it was. The match just sucked, and the worst part is that the heel team which actually had some serious talent had to lose to 4 clowns. (DUD)
4. Shawn Michaels & His Knights vs. The Hart Family (4-on-4 Survivor Series elimination match)
This match was doomed from the beginning. Firstly, this match was supposed to be The Hart Family taking on Jerry Lawler’s team, but Lawler was replaced by Michaels as he faced r*pe accusations. Due to the replacement, the match had already lost a lot of heat and it wasn’t interesting. The match was very boring and at times painful to watch. Bret Hart also didn’t get involved a lot in the match which didn’t make any sense. The best thing coming out of the match was Owen Hart getting frustrated at Bret Hart as they slowly built up the feud. (**1/2)
3. The All-Americans vs. The Foreign Fanatics (4-on-4 Survivor Series elimination match)
The team of All-Americans contained of Lex Luger, The Undertaker and The Steiner Brothers. The Foreign Fanatics were represented by Yokozuna, Ludvig Borga, Crush and Quebecer Jacques. The match wasn’t bad at all, but disappointing given the talent involved. It was used to set up the Yokozuna/Undertaker feud as both got disqualified by a double count-out. In the end, Ludvig Borga tried a lot to pin Luger but Luger prevailed and won the match for his team. It was a good victory for Luger but I didn’t care about him. (**3/4)
2. The 1-2-3 Kid, Marty Jannetty, Razor Ramon & Randy Savage vs. IRS, Diesel, Rick Martel & Adam Bomb (4-on-4 Survivor Series elimination match)
A good bunch of talent was involved in this match, and it was quite enjoyable. Savage replacing Mr. Perfect got a great reaction which was good to see. The match got boring in the middle, but it picked up towards the end. The babyface team won as Marty Jannetty and The 1-2-3 Kid were the survivors. (***1/4)
1. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express vs. The Heavenly Bodies (SMW Tag Team Championships)
It’s weird seeing a non-WWF title match on a WWF PPV. In fact, this was the only title match of the night. Anyway, this match was very good with some really good moves, but sadly the crowd didn’t care at all. I can’t blame them because this type of wrestling wasn’t common back then, but it is funny that the match the crowd was into the least actually ended up being as the best match of the night. (***1/2)
And that’s all for today’s post, thank you all for reading. Stay tuned for the next post where we will rank all the PPVs of 1993. Have a nice day!
