Team Captain: The Rock
Other Members: Brock Lesnar, Ken Shamrock and the Rockers (Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty)
The captain of my team is the eyebrow raising, trail blazin’ great one. With an impressive winning record at Survivor Series, Dwayne Johnson’s career took off starting with the 1996 event.
He was the sole survivor of his team which also included Marc Mero, "The Stalker" and Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
The People’s Champion instantly became the Corporate Champion in a Montreal Screwjob-esque situation at the 1998 Survivor Series.
The most electrifying man in sports entertainment is an obvious choice for captain as he led the WWF team to victory over the Alliance to destroy them once and for all.
If it weren’t for my captain, WCW may still be around—just kidding.
Despite having a less than impressive 0-2 record at Survivor Series, Lesnar is a behemoth with some memorable moments at the annual November classic.
In 2002, Paul Heyman betrayed Lesnar and helped Big Show win.
However, Show will help Heyman and Lesnar a year later defeat Team Angle.
Lesnar’s brute strength helps the Rock and the other Rocky Rockin' Rockers defeat anyone who gets in our way.
While in WWE, between 1997 and 1999, Shamrock established a record of 2-1 in Survivor Series matches.
In his first year, Shamrock was the sole survivor of his team, which included Ahmed Johnson and the Legion of Doom.
In his second year at Survivor Series, Shamrock defeated Goldust in the first round of the WWE Championship tournament, but went on to lose to the eventual winner the Rock. Hence the 2-1 in just two years of action.
When you think about survival, what comes to mind? Danger?
Well, the man once referred to as the World’s Most Dangerous Man is a must have on any successful Survivor Series team.
The Heartbreak Kid may have the most number of losses at Survivor Series (10), but Michaels’ experience at the annual event is certainly historic.
While with the Rockers, Michaels headlined his first pay-per-view for WWE in a four on four elimination match in the main event of the 1989 Survivor Series.
Eight years later, Shawn Michaels would be a part of the most famous incident in professional wrestling known as the Montreal Screwjob.
No need to go into detail about it. If you don’t know about it, google immediately (after reading this).
Despite the controversy, Michaels was awarded the WWE Championship that night, but it wasn’t his only championship victory at Survivor Series.
In 2002, WWE held the first ever Elimination Chamber match, which saw HBK win the World Heavyweight Championship.
As my favorite wrestler of all time, Shawn Michaels is certainly a rocker and a must have on my Survivor Series dream team.
Although he was not the most successful WWE superstar, Survivor Series 1991 was the beginning of the end of Jannetty and the Rockers.
It was then that Marty accidentally kicked Shawn Michaels and caused him to be eliminated.
This incident led to the famous Barbershop segment where Shawn Michaels turned heel and attacked Jannetty.
However, in 1993, Jannetty and the 1-2-3 Kid were the survivors of their team, which included Razor Ramon and Macho Man Randy Savage. Bet you never thought those two would have been the survivors.
All of these Rocky Rockin' Rockers have proven that they have the skills, talent and drive to survive.
With their captain, the Rock, this team would certainly steal the show and put all other teams to rest. No damage can be done to this team, similar to the game rock, paper, scissors.
Scissors cut paper leaving it useless. A rock would certainly destroy scissors, taking away their use.
What happens to the rock?
A paper covers it?
No structural damage. You can’t destroy the rock.
You can’t destroy the Rocky Rockin' Rockers!
It’s been Me. It’s been Me. It’s been the G-U-DOUBLE T!
