Well, after WWE has already released anthologies on their other 3 major events...it's time for the final one in their "Big Four" being the Survivor Series. This first Volume is from the early years of the event where the heavy focus was on strickly having tag team elimination matches with wrestlers teaming together based off common hatred for others on the opposite team...to the point where there is only one match on here that wasn't a tag team elimination match. Now keep in mind that I'm doing my reviews from either the VHS version with the unedited event or a replay I caught off WWE Classics On Demand.

1987 - This is going to be a treat for those who already have this event on video because if you remember, the VHS version was edited down to 2 hours there so here you get the full event. This was historic in many ways as this event marked the first ever Survivor Series and also the fact that this PPV ran on the same night as NWA's Starrcade event (which caused Starrcade to be bumped off many cable networks). The main event featured Andre The Giant, One Man Gang, King Kong Bundy, Butch Reed, Rick Rude vs. Hulk Hogan, Paul Orndorff, Don Muraco, Ken Patera, Bam Bam Bigelow that's remembered for it not only being the first time Hogan & Andre were in the ring for a match since WrestleMania III but the outstanding performance of Bigelow that puts a stamp on the label he's gotten as "one of the best 'big men' in wrestling." Also on here is the first ever 20 man tag team elimination match with 5 tag teams on each team & other matches feature Randy Savage, Jake Roberts, Ricky Steamboat, Brutus Beefcake, Jim Duggan vs. Honky Tonk Man, Hercules, Danny Davis, Ron Bass, Harley Race...and an all womens match featuring teams headed up by Faboulous Moolah & Sensational Sherri.

On the whole, this is a huge improvement from the Coliseum Video releases, at least the first 2 years.

1987 - we get to see the full match of Savage's team vs. Honky's team, which was pretty brutally clipped on Colisuem.

we also get the full version of the tag match, which cut out a lot, including the Bulldog's elimination.

we also get 2 segments that weren't on the Coliseum video at all. A Honky Tonk Man interview and Thanksgiving with Ted Dibiase. Lots of vignettes are shown as Ted offers money to fans by asking them to do stuff. He asks a kid to do 10 pushups, but the kid collapses on the 9th one. He asks another kid to dribble a basketball 15 times consecutively, and kicks the ball away from him on the 14th one. He has a woman get down on all fours and bark like a dog, but not to his satisfaction so she doesn't get the money. Then he has a young guy kiss his feet after a match. This was tremendous heel heat.

I was disappointed that these new releases cut out the part where Gorilla and Jesse discuss and analyze the match after each match, which was on the Coliseum video. Also, the Jumping Bomb Angels have different music, which is not as good. But overall, a huge imrovement.

1988. Also much improvement here, as the Warrior's team vs. Honky's team, and Jake Robert's team vs Andre's team matches are in their entirety here and were hacked to death in the Coliseum release. We get to see Owen Hart (Blue Blazer) turn an arm-lock into a head-scissors in an awesome moment.

the 1987 was a rare WWF event that had no duds. The others have their highs and lows, but i would recommend it, especially if you're looking to upgrade those Coliseum videos.

The Virginity of A WWE Pay Per View That Gave Wrestle Mania Competition, If You Will! Survivor Series Was Darn Close To Being As Thanksgiving Traditional As Turkey and Stuffing For The First 5 Years 87 to 91! 4 and 5 Man Tag Team Elimination Matches A Team Captain Pirates The Ship and As The Avengers Can Sign off on Now It's About Being A Team! OF COURSE IT DOSEN'T ALWAYS WORK OUT THAT WAY! Specifically If Your Team Mate Is Bad News Brown! 88 The Honky Tonk Man's Team Accidentally Triggered Bad News To Abandon Ship! You'd Think They'd Learn A Lesson From It But One Year Late In 89 Big Boss Man's Enforcers Team Tried To Add Bad News Brown As A Pinch Hitter But Same Thing Different Year! Is It Just Me or Did Team Players Like The Natural Butch Reed, Sam Houston, Scott Casey and The Orient Express Seem Extremely Green Around The Gills! I'm Sure They Could Out Wrestle Me on Their Worst Day But For Their Respected Teams They Just Seemed Lack Luster! There Were Great El Capitan over The years Like The Immortal Hulk Hogan Leader of Bam Bam Bigelow, The Rock Don Morracco, Mr. Wonderful And Ken Patera! 88's Mega Powers of Koko B Ware, Hercules And Hillbilly Jim Then 2 Back To Back Teams Understandably Titled The Hulkamainiacs! 89 You Had Demolition And Jake The Snake! 1990 Tugboat, The Big Boss Man And Hacksaw Jim Duggan! Anyone In The Know Knows The Rest of The Story If Not Check This Collection Out Cause It's Survival of The Fit!

Survivor Series Anthology, Vol. 3 & 4
The only thing I can think of that might be delaying Volumes 3 & 4 are this:

1) Chris Benoit is featured on both volumes. Once on Volume 3 (the 2000 main event), and on every event for the 4th Volume (2002-2006).

2) Although Volume 3 is kinda tough to come by, Volume 4 is pretty easy to get... Read More
