If the internet existed outside of military ops in 1987 this match would be probably surpass Hogan-Rock as one of the most shockingly surprising awesome matches.
Given that the first Survivor Series had 99% of the good workers in the Savage-HTM and Tag-Team matches there wasn’t too much expected from the Super Heavyweight main event. But Scotty gave it **** and I’m actually right there with him because these guys really let it all hang out.
As much as the Survivor Series format is outdated, I am one of those that still believes with the proper build you could get people somewhat excited about a 5-on-5 with Cena, Bryan, Punk, Rhodes vs. Shield, HHH and hmm Bro…nah no way in hell would he do it so let’s go with Del Rio. Seriously give it 45 minutes and I think you’d have a kick ass match. Much better than that 7-on-7 deal at Summerslam a few years ago.
Anyway, let’s climb in the way back machine as Team Hogan (Hulk, Muraco, Bam Bam, Orndorff and Ken Patera) battle Team Andre (Rick Rude, Butch Reed, One Man Gang, King Kong Bundy and Andre)
