From a period where there were some great names.
Late 1991 to early 1992 saw some popular names in circulation in the WWE. Amongst them were Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Legion of Doom, The British Bulldog, Sid Justice, The Nasty Boys, The Mountie, Sgt. Slaughter, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ted DiBiase, Virgil, Bret "Hitman" Hart amongst others. The 5th Annual Survivor Series featured some of the above names in some thrilling matches. The only negative thing, is that the heels dominated this PPV. My favourite match from the card, is the 3 on 3 match with Legion of Doom and the Big Boss Man vs. IRS and The Natural Disasters. L.O.D truly were afraid of no one and they show this when they squared up to a tag team of a combined weight of 852 pounds. The match was meant to include Sid Justice on the baby face team and Jake Roberts on the heel team. For reasons I don't know, they had to withdraw which was a pity. Hulk Hogan defending his title against The Undertaker was building quite a bit of heat, especially with Ric Flair claiming to be the real champion. The resulting match was very good from this Survivor Series card. The other 3 matches are great. Roddy Piper and Ric Flair were Captains of their own teams, they were having a story angle at the time. We get such a difference in Wrestling styles and it makes for very good viewing. Bret Hart was enjoying his early success as a singles wrestler. At the time in November 1991, he was the holder of the Intercontinental title. The match concludes with an ending I knew all too well would happen! The Rockers and The Bushwhackers teamed up against The Nasty Boys and The Beverly Brothers in a thrilling encounter that was a bit one- sided. There is one incident which would lead to The Rockers breaking up soon after..... Hacksaw Jim Duggan captained his team against the Viking character, The Berzerker. I enjoyed it, although it would have been better if Ricky Steamboat had been involved as he was originally meant to be. A most satisfying PPV and a darn sight better than the previous years Survivor Series.
