Re: WWE.COM: 15 Survivor Series Squads Built To Last
Teams 1, 2, & 3 on that list would actually be my Top 3 as well.
All three are just such a wonderful mix of talents and characters.
I remember looking at the poster for Survivor Series 89 and seeing Hogan's team on the cover and thinking "That is the coolest thing ever". Normally, Hulk Hogan's SS teams would be comprised of goofy babyfaces like Koko B. Ware, Hillbilly Jim, & Tugboat. But here? We got Hogan with Jake Roberts and Demolition. That is bad ass, especially since Hogan rarely interacted with them and it made for a great foursome for sure. This was easily the most fun out of Hogan's various SS teams.
DX, The Hardys, & CM Punk from 2006 is such a great mix of talents. You got Triple H & Shawn Michaels, the old guard that helped to jumpstart the attitude era. You could The Hardy Boys, arguably the greatest tag team of their time, and CM Punk, the rising sensation. There are so many similarities and differences between all five men that it just made for an awesome team. It felt like they belonged together but at the same time, they were different enough to stand on their own. A hard balance to reach, but they did it hear.
And The Warriors from 1990. Oh God, if we had gotten the 89 Hulkamaniacs Vs. the 90 Warriors, that would have been a hell of a showcase. You got the madman, The Ultimate Warrior, the toughest fucking tag team ever, The Legion of Doom, The Road Warriors, and the man once known as The Midnight Warrior, Kerry Von Erich the Texas Tornado. Again, it was just a great mix of personalities, especially since Warrior and LOD were so out there.
