Survivor Series 1990
The fourth annual Survivor Series was held on Thanksgiving night, November 22nd 1990 at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford Connecticut.
Memorable for several reasons but in the grand scheme of the future of the WWF/WWE was the debut of The Undertaker. Formerly known as "Mean" Mark Callous, the wrestler WCW journeyman wrestler Mark Calloway would become legend in the WWF and is still performing today.
This years Series had 5 Survivor Elimination matches and a Grand Finale with each "babyface" survivor teaming up to meet the "heel" survivors. The Undertaker would make his debut as a member of "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase's team "The Million Dollar Team" which also consisted of Ted Dibiase, and Rhythm & Blues (Honky Tonk Man & Greg Valentine).
The first Survivor Series elimination match of the night saw The Warriors (Ultimate Warrior, Kerry Von Erich and The Legion of Doom) vs The Perfect Team (Curt Henning and Demolition (Ax, Smash & Crush) with Bobby Heenan in their corner.
