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.Read more ›
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.
Many new generation fans may find it too slow paced to appreciate the artform of the Beginning of the Thanksgiving tradition Known as the survivor series but this is where it all began.

It's just another DX dominated PPV. I hate to say this but the duo are way too overrated and deserves to be kept behind the WWE curtains.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer

An awesome collection of every match at each of these Survivor Series when they really were survivor series, and not just a name to a number of standard matches.Published 13 months ago by Douglas A. Sommer
