    I'll get with 94 because it featured a stellar angle with Owen Hart begging his mother Helen to throw the towel in for Bret Hart vs Bob Backlund. Was great. Also that Bad Guys team featured some of my favourite faces together namely Bulldog and 123 Kid.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,152 ✭✭✭NITRO95


    1990 because it had Taker's debut and the Ultimate Survivors match which I still think is a great concept


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    2-1 to Survivor Series 1994. Any more punters care to cast a vote?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,985 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    94.

    Undertaker debut aside, 94 is just overall better.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Chuck Norris has too much for everyone else. 1994 reigns supreme.
    Our next match features two very recent events.

    Two strong cards but I think 2017 has to take the win here. AJ vs Brock is somewhat of a dream match and New Day vs Shield is intriguing. The Champion vs Champion concept was done well too and the brand battle was built well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    A tough one but i'm thinking 17 as well. Just for the AJ / Brock match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    2-0 to the Champion vs Champion edition of Survivor Series. Next up we have two modern era events going head to head. Which do you think was better?

    Survivor Series 2016

    220px-SurviorSeries2016poster.jpg

    * Team Raw (Braun Strowman, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins)
    vs Team Smackdown (AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, and Shane McMahon with James Ellsworth

    * Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg

    Survivor Series 2014

    220px-WWE_Survivor_Series_2014_Official_Poster.jpg



    * Goldust & Stardust vs Damien Mizdow and The Miz vs The Usos vs Los Matadores for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    * Dean Ambrose vs Bray Wyatt

    * AJ Lee vs Nikki Bella for the WWE Divas Championship

    * Team Cena (John Cena, Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan
    vs Team Authority (Seth Rollins, Kane, Rusev, Mark Henry, and Luke Harper)


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    This one is a tough one for me. I enjoyed the Cena vs Authority match and build, especially given how the opposite wrestlers on each side complimented each other in their solo feuds i.e. Cena/Rollins, Big Show/Kane, Ziggler/Rusev, Ryback/Henry, Rowan/Harper. I think Sting maybe debuted this night too.

    However 2016 had a stacked main event with SD at it's arguable peak. Roode and Nakamura still weren't ruined yet and Braun was still a boss. The Women and Tag scenes were fresh and exciting too.

    I vote 2016.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    going for 14 but a real tough one but loved the cena vs authority match and sting debut just seals it

    1-1 here, we need a tie breaker!


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    I've flipped a coin and it's 2014 that goes through. I'll give this one more bash and if it gets no more traction I'll leave it off.

    95 this was just as I was hitting peak fandom as a kid


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    1995 for me. That Diesel vs Bret match was unlike anything I'd ever seen. Both were face going in but both had heel tendencies throughout, especially Diesel. It was a great brawl and, for my money, Kevin Nash's best bout. First table spot I remember too.

    Liked the Wildcard gimmick of heels and faces on each other's teams and loved the suspense of Undertaker returning and showing us all that awesome Phantom of the Opera mask.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    I haven't seen 95, but i'm voting for it. I'm a huge mark for this era of wrestling. And by gum, i may just watch this event tonight

    Watch the Diesel vs Bret match and let me know what you think of it. Subtlety, brutality and psychology is great in it.

    I think you'll get a kick out of the Taker vs Royals match too. Very camp.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    i will loudly proclaim to be the biggest diesel/nash fan gets far too much flak that match is a classic


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral

    96 for that Bret Austin match. Have a soft spot for the HBK / Sid match too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    96 for same reasons as gerry


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral

    i know im very much alone here but loved the invasion back in the day 01 for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    I think I'd go with 2001 over 1999. '99 was a bit all over the place booking wise and a deeper look at the card shows some weird matches and combos that don't really work.

    2001 has a really hot poster too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    2001's InVasion era beats out the Attitude Era. Let's check out our second last bout of the round.

    2007 for me. Better card.

    2011 was a major deal becuase the Rock returned to wrestle for 2 minutes


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    yep 2007 for me better card

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Would have to go along with the consensus here and say 2007. The 2011 edition hasn't got one thing on it that excites me.
