Survivor Series 1987
The very first Survivor Series was held this day November 26th in 1987. Taking place at the Richfield Coliseum in Cleveland OH, this was Vince McMahon's answer to the NWA's Starrcade PPV held on Thanksgiving night since 1983 and to capitalize on the Hulk Hogan/Andre The Giant feud from Wrestlemania III.
The matches were tag team style elimination matches made up of teams of 5 wrestlers to a side.
The main event was the team "captained" by Hulk Hogan (Paul Orndorff, Don Muraco,Ken Patera and Bam Bam Bigelow) facing a team "captained" by Andre The Giant (One Man Gang, King Kong Bundy, Butch Reed and Rick Rude).
