A Tribute to One of My Favourite PPVs: Survivor Series
One of my favourite ppvs was the survivor series mainly because of the fantastic elimination matches.
In my article, you will see all the survivor series main events from 1987 until 1994(wwe best times mainly becasue of guys like hogan andre bret hart hbk etc.) there are a lot of memorable matches at that period.
In case you wonder, I will try to make a 1995-2008 if I have time.
ANYWAYS let get started:
