1990 has always had a soft spot in my heart. Undertaker's debut & the only year to include the Ultimate Survivor match to boot.

Others: 1987(original deserves a shout, you know?) 1995, 2000, & 2002 (a personal favorite)

Can't go wrong with the majority. I'd wage to say all bring a certain level of fun pardon a few of the recent years and 1999. 1998 to some degree too since it was a one night tournament not exactly filled with lengthy bouts.

Think I'm probably going to start at 2000 and just work through them chronologically from there.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2000 - 2005 are some quality shows, imo. 2006 is very bad. 2007 is solid, 2008 & 2009 are hit and miss, 2010 legit has one GREAT first half and one SHIT second half, 2011 sucks, & 2012 was you'll either like it or hate it.

If you can make some time for the older shows then give those a go too. Like I said, a whole bunch of fun from each of those events.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

1989 is my favourite Survivor Series, just because it had every match as a SS match. Nostalgia plays a big part too. Some epic performances.

Dusty Rhodes, Brutus Beefcake, Tito Santana and Red Rooster vs. Big Bossman, Honky Tonk Man, Rick Martel and Bad News Brown - ***

Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Bret Hart, Ronnie Garvin and Hercules vs. Macho King, Greg Valentine, Earthquake and Dino Bravo - ***1/4

Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts and Demolition vs. Ted Dibiase, Zeus and Powers Of Pain - **1/2

Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka and The Bushwhackers vs. Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect and Fabulous Rougeaus - ***1/2

Ultimate Warrior, Jim Neidhart and The Rockers vs. Andre The Giant, Bobby Heenan, Arn Anderson and Haku - ***

No REAL classics but every match was pretty solid, with the weakest match on paper entertaining me the most. That final stretch with Snuka and Perfect was pretty awesome. Arn Anderson also put in a terrific display in the final match, as did Ted Dibiase in the main event.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

1988 & 1989 deserve mentions b/c it has ARN on both + Tully.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Don't know about full events, but the massive 10 Vs 10 match with the tag teams in 1988 is a MUST SEE SS match. Goes over 40 minutes and its awesome.

Yeah I only first saw this match a year or two ago, fucking brilliant and went on for AGES. Couldn't believe my eyes when I found out who won the match, a nice ending to a superb bout.

I thought it was a snooz fest when I watched it in 1990 for the first time. only novelty is seeing Dynamite / Mountie in the ring right after their bust up, but even then nothing happens out of the ordinary. In my view, if you watxh this match now for the first time, you'll be dissapointed.

Hell, even the video quality is garbage.

You can't go wrong with 1999-2006 Survivor Serie's events. My personal favorites are 2001/2002/2003.
