Published

on

Backstage: Todd Pettengill is standing by with ‘The King Of Harts’ Owen Hart, Owen revealing that his parents fell right into his trap to takeaway the WWF Championship from his brother. The King of Harts claims that Bret is now a “nobody”, trademarking himself as ‘The best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be’.

Match #4 – Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match: The Million Dollar Team (Tatanka, Bam Bam Bigelow, King Kong Bundy & The Heavenly Bodies (Dr. Tom Prichard & ‘Gigolo’ Jimmy Del Ray)) w/’The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase & James E. Cornette vs. Guts & Glory (Lex Luger, Mabel, Adam Bomb & The Smoking Gunns (Billy & Bart)) w/Oscar
Tatanka backs into Luger and strikes first with kicks and overhand chops to the head, rams Lex head-first into the top turnbuckle, then scores with stinging chops in the corner. Lex absorbs the blows, The Native American goes to the breadbasket with a kick, delivers a vertical suplex, but Luger pops right back to his feet and fires away with right hands. He shoots Tatanka to the ropes and goes downstairs with a fist, plants him with a running bulldog, floors The Native American with multiple clothesline and deposits him to the outside. Prichard hits the ring and Luger lays him out with a clothesline, The Gigolo is in right behind him and gets elevated by a military press, Bigelow steps in to aid his partner, but gets Del Ray tossed onto him.

Bundy steps inside and is met by Mabel, thinks better of it and heads back to the apron, order is restored and Tatanka finally rolls into the squared circle to tag out. Luger tags Mabel and locks up with Dr. Tom, the big man powers Prichard down to the canvas, they tie-up again, Mabel whips him to the ropes, misses multiple shots, but catches him in the air attempting a crossbody. He dumps Dr. Tom to the canvas and looks for an elbow drop, Prichard rolls out of harm’s way and puts the boots to him, drops a knee across the chest, then buries punches to the abdomen in the corner. Irish whip across is blocked then reversed, Prichard rebounds out and gets tossed by a back body drop, Mabel climbs to the 2nd rope, squashes Dr. Tom with a crossbody and that ends his night. Dr. Tom Prichard has been eliminated.

Del Ray steps into the ring and staggers the big man with multiple dropkicks, hits the ropes for a clothesline that barely moves him, goes back to the ropes once again and gets planted by a sidewalk slam. The Gigolo squirms to his corner and tags, Bundy climbs in and goes face-to-face with Mabel, hits the ropes for a shoulder block that has no affect, Mabel tries his hand at it and Bundy doesn’t budge, goes back in, ducks under a clothesline and finally topples The Walking Condominium over with a shoulder. Bam Bam tags himself in, Mabel hammers him with clubbing shots, The Beast from the East goes to the eyes, tries an enzuigiri that is ducked and then gets clocked by a spinning heel kick. Mabel looks to head up top, Bigelow pops to his feet and slams him down to the mat, heads upstairs himself for a sunset flip, can’t pull the big man down and Mabel simply drops down on his chest.

He clotheslines Bam Bam over the top, both guys spill out to the floor, the official starts the count, Bigelow rolls back in just in time and Mabel has been counted out. Mabel has been eliminated. Billy wastes no time and comes right in with a dropkick to Bam Bam, The Beast from the East falls towards his corner and The Gigolo makes a tag, Billy catches him with kicks and right hands, sends him to the ropes and flattens him with a back elbow. He celebrates a little too early and Del Ray rips at the eyes, drops him with a superkick, goes to a cover for 2, Billy bridges back up, goes into a backslide and gains a near fall. We get tags on both sides now, Adam surprises Bigelow running in with a drop toe hold, fires off a series of punches, The Beast from the East goes to the eyes and hooks him for a vertical suplex, but Bomb slips out the backside.

He pushes Bam Bam to the ropes for a roll-up, Bigelow hangs on to block it, Adam comes charging back in and gets dumped over the top to the floor. He quickly climbs back up to the apron, slingshots back inside with a clothesline, lays The Beast from the East out with a couple more clotheslines, delivers a body slam and hits the ropes. Bundy with a cheap shot from the apron, Bigelow takes advantage and plants him with a bulldog, heads up top and connects with the Bam Bamsault, hooks the leg and gets the pinfall. Adam Bomb has been eliminated. Lex quickly steps in and utilizes a schoolboy from behind for a near fall, decks Bigelow with right hands, charges him in the corner, The Beast from the East gets the boot up, Del Ray tags in and drills Luger with a superkick.

He drops a knee across the forehead and chokes Lex for a count of 2, connects with a barrage of right hands, then drapes him throat-first over the 2nd rope for some more choking. The Gigolo in complete control now, irish whip to the ropes is reversed, Del Ray ducks a clothesline, doesn’t avoid the Running Forearm Smash and Luger pins him to the canvas. ‘Gigolo’ Jimmy Del Ray has been eliminated. Tatanka hammers Lex from behind and knocks him into the corner, Bart tags himself in, splits The Native American with an atomic drop, plants him with a body slam and scores with a dropkick for a 2 count. He shoots Tatanka to the ropes and Billy tags in, The Smoking Gunns with a double shoulder block, plant Tatanka with a double side russian leg sweep, Billy covers, but only gets 2.

Tag back to Bart and he goes to work on the left arm with a wristlock, Billy re-enters for more of the same, delivers a body slam, hits the ropes for a knee drop, then tags back out. Bart covers for a count of 2, clocks The Native American with big lefts, buries knees and shoulders to the midsection in the corner, sends him to the ropes and tags Billy who in-turn hits a dropkick for a near fall. Bart comes back in and whips Tatanka into the corner, throws him across the ring with a monkey flip for another 2, Billy tags back in and The Smoking Gunns scores with the Sidewinder, but still can’t get a 3 count. Another quick tag to Bart as Billy sends The Native American to the ropes, Bart looks for a crucifix, Tatanka counters into the End Of The Trail and covers for the 1-2-3. Bart Gunn has been eliminated.

Billy comes in and pummels Tatanka with right hands, shoots him to the ropes for a clothesline that gains another 2 count, makes a tag to Luger and he comes off the 2nd rope with a double axe to the shoulder. Lex works over the arm with a wristlock and tags out, Billy keeps the focus on the shoulder area, sends The Native American to the ropes, hits a hip toss and floats into the cover, but only gets 2. He drops an elbow for another 2 count, tag back to Lex, he scoops The Native American up for a body slam, Billy re-enters the match, snapmares him over and makes a lateral press for a count of 2. Irish whip to the ropes is reversed, Billy leapfrogs over and puts on the brakes, sends The Native American back in, attempts to leapfrog over again, but gets caught in the air and driven down by a powerslam.

Bundy enters the match and looks for a big elbow drop that misses the mark, Billy fires away with jabs to the jaw, irish whip to the corner is reversed, The Walking Condominium follows him in for the Avalanche, delivers the elbow drop and puts him away. Billy Gunn has been eliminated. Lex is left to fight all on his own now, Tatanka tries to sneak into the ring, Luger cuts him off, but it allows Bundy to attack from behind. He pummels Luger in the corner with knife-edge chops, drives him head-first into the top turnbuckle and tags in Bigelow for a double whip across. Bigelow charges in for a splash that misses, Lex explodes out with a clothesline to Bundy, Tatanka quickly tags in, gets flattened by a clothesline and Luger covers for a near fall.

Irish whip to the ropes is reversed, The Native American ducks for a back body drop, Lex counters with a sunset flip, Tatanka tags out to avoid it and Bigelow steps in with big headbutts, then plants Luger with a vertical suplex for a near fall. The Walking Condominium re-enters the match and sends Lex to the ropes for a back elbow, delivers a knee drop for a count of 2, sends him face-first into Tatanka’s boot and tags out. The Native American clubs Luger down to the canvas, buries kicks to the ribs, chokes him on the middle rope and makes a tag. The Beast from the East continues the beatdown, drops a headbutt for 2, tags out and Bundy sends Lex hard into the turnbuckles.

He drops an elbow and still can’t put him away, deposits him face-first into the top turnbuckle and brings Tatanka in, The Native American whips Luger to the ropes for a powerslam, hooks the leg, but Lex kicks out at 2. Tatanka hits the ropes for numerous elbow drops, picks him up for a body slam, Luger counters into a small package and steals a 3 count. Tatanka has been eliminated. Bundy steps in as the referee counts the shoulders down, hits the ropes and squashes Lex with a splash, the official drops down and it’s over.
Winners & Sole Survivors: Bam Bam Bigelow & King Kong Bundy

  • After The Bell: Bundy & Bam Bam pick Luger up and Tatanka starts to put a number on him, The Native American plants him with End Of The Trail, The Beast from the East follows with a dropping headbutt and the 3-1 assault continues. The Smoking Gunns & Adam Bomb sprint down to the ring, clean house and make the save. Mabel makes his way down to the ring, The Heavenly Bodies come running down, the big man flattening them both on the floor.
  • EA’s TakeThis was about as typical of a traditional Survivor Series match as it gets folks. There was very little to get excited about and if I ever wanted to describe a standard elimination match, I’d refer someone to this. Tatanka had turned on Luger back at SummerSlam after weeks of insinuations by DiBiase that Lex had sold out to him, only for it to later be revealed that The Native American was the man who took the money. The Million Dollar Man’s squad was an actual faction, one of the earlier ones that I can remember in the WWF so despite the fans wanting the babyfaces to get the victory, it only made booking sense for the heels to go over since there were more concrete plans for them in the future.

Backstage: Todd Pettengill is with the new WWF Champion Bob Backlund as he is getting pictures taken by a number of media members, Backlund claiming he’s been the champion since 1978 because he never actually lost, stating he simply regained the belt tonight. Mr. Backlund claims he beat the man society looks up to tonight, saying he will patronize and homogenize us back into morality, vowing to take on anybody so he can show this generation that fighting for what you believe in is more important than anything.

Match #5 – Casket Match w/Special Enforcer Chuck Norris: Yokozuna w/Mr. Fuji & James E. Cornette vs. The Undertaker w/Paul Bearer
The Deadman points to the casket and motions to Yoko that he will meet his demise, The Mighty One drops to his backside and looks to climb out, but Taker pulls him back in and goes to work with kicks and uppercuts. Irish whip to the corner is reversed, Yokozuna rushes in with a splash, The Phenom absorbs it and fires away with shots to the throat. He shoots the big man towards the ropes, Yoko sees the casket and puts on the brakes in fear, turns around and Undertaker knocks him to the outside on top of the casket with an uppercut. Yokozuna scurries away, The Deadman reaches over the ropes to grab him, The Mighty One drags him to the outside, but can’t capitalize and gets driven face-first into the ring steps.

Yoko stumbles and walks himself into the ring post, staggers back into the squared circle, Taker meets him there with boots and throat shots, grabs the arm and scales the corner walking the ropes to deliver a clubbing blow to the back. He hits the ropes and ducks under a clothesline, The Mighty One plants him with a Samoan drop, The Phenom sits back up and rises to his feet, but gets clotheslined back down. He sits up again and Yoko drops him with multiple headbutts, rolls Undertaker towards the casket, The Phenom scores with shots from the apron, Yokozuna clocks him with a headbutt, reaches over to grab him and gets dropped throat-first across the top rope. Taker steps back inside and hits the ropes for an elbow drop, The Mighty One avoids it, delivers a uranage suplex, drops the massive leg across the chest, calls for the casket to open and rolls The Deadman towards it.

Undertaker blocks the lid from being closed and fights his way out, drags The Mighty One into the caskt with him and they exchange punches. Fuji grabs The Phenom by the hair to distract him, Taker starts stalking him and gets him by the throat, Cornette tries to sneak up from behind with the tennis rackt, but Undertaker feels it coming and drops him with an uppercut. The Phenom slides into the squared circle and is met by a body slam, Yoko knocks him to the outside with a big haymaker, reaches through the ropes and rams him face-first into the steps, drags The Deadman back in and bludgeons him in the corner.

He chokes Taker on the 2nd rope, continues to hammer him with headbutts and fists, shoots him into the corner and The Phenom explodes out with a clothesline. Irish whip to the ropes is reversed, The Mighty One ducks his head for a back body drop, Undertaker grabs him by the head and plants him into the mat, ascends the corner to the top turnbuckle and connects with a flying clothesline. Undertaker starts to work The Mighty One towards the the casket, King Kong Bundy starts to make his way towards the ring and is met by multiple referees, Bam Bam Bigelow comes out to stand beside him and they lock eyes with Norris.

Irwin R. Schyster slides into the ring behind The Deadman and ambushes him, rams Taker head-first into the top turnbuckle numerous times, then slaps on a sleeper hold and dumps him into the casket before sneaking out through the crowd. Yoko comes to and reaches out to close the casket, The Phenom rises to his feet and grabs him by the neck, Jeff Jarrett marches down to ringside and comes face-to-face with Norris, the ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ star lays him out with a sidekick, Undertaker gets Yokozuna reeling with throat thrusts back in the ring, irish whip to the ropes is reversed and The Deadman ducks a shot, then scores with a flying clothesline.

He hits the ropes The Mighty One ducks for a back body drop, Taker spikes him with a DDT, knocks him out and into the casket with a running big boot, swipes the Japanese flag from Fuji and snaps it in half, throws it into the casket and slams the lid shut.
Winner: The Undertaker

  • EA’s TakeThis one felt eerily similar to their first casket match back at Royal Rumble, the only exception being that Chuck Norris and his celebrity was capitalized on and used as a way to keep Yokozuna from getting loads of help to win the match. The Deadman was on a major roll since his return at SummerSlam and the aftermath of this one was a real role reversal as Yoko would take a number of months off, much like Taker did back in January. The Mighty One would start to move down the card upon his return in 1995, using the time off to add to his already massive girth as The Undertaker transitioned into a battle with another behemoth, King Kong Bundy.

EA’s FinisherI wouldn’t call this a poor show by any means and it certainly was a step-up from the previous year’s Survivor Series, but there’s a recurring theme that I would call a lack of excitement that was really an issue for the wrestling industry as a whole during these years. This event would continue that run with the biggest takeaway of the evening and only real stand-out moment being the turn of Diesel on his longtime friend Shawn Michaels. Big Daddy Cool’s ascent was typical of the 1980’s mindframe of wrestling as he was pushed to the moon mainly because of his size, however it would be hard to argue that he wasn’t over despite his lack of workrate in between the ropes. The new year would mainly bring continuation from the fallout of this show as we head towards the Royal Rumble and then WrestleMania XI.

Top Three To Watch
1 – Bret Hart vs. Bob Backlund
2 – The Bad Guys vs. The Teamsters
3 – The Undertaker vs. Yokozuna
