Granted the WWE Survivor Series is still several months out here, but I remember during philosophy class this past spring semester, I was day-dreaming, wishing that there was some kind of machine that could actually computer generate matches and pay-per-views if we “set-up” the matches.
I remember the original concept of the Survivor Series pay-per-view, having it on Wednesday afternoons before Thanksgiving here in the United States, having ten-man elimination tag team matches for the whole card. To me, I would be in heaven here on earth if Vincent Kennedy McMahon would bring that back. But here are some matches I day-dreamed.
NWA World Champion Ric Flair, NWA World Tag Team Champions Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, NWA TV Champion Barry Windham, and Sting.
Probably would be the biggest match in professional wrestling if this match would have happened somewhere in 1985 and 1987. Why would it be the biggest match, ever? The stars in this match were the biggest stars in each company during this time frame.
Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant were in a huge feud in 1987, and people were questioning who’s the better wrestler, Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair? That tension would be huge, would Andre screw over the WWF team and take out Hogan, to let Flair win, beating both of them, and capture the victory? This match alone would bring in huge buy rates and VHS tapes then and would still sell on DVD’s now on being the biggest match in professional wrestling history.
Announcers: Jim Ross (NWA), Jesse Ventura (WWF), and Gorilla Monsoon (WWF).
WWF Champion Shawn Michaels, WWF Intercontinental Champion the Rock, WWF Tag Team Champions Money Inc., and WWF European Champion Davey Boy Smith.
WCW Champion Hulk Hogan, WCW US Champion Curt Hennig, WCW World Tag Team Champions the Outsiders, and WCW Television Champion Ric Flair.
Huge wrestlers from different eras of the 1990’s, I, as a wrestling fan for two decades, would love to see. For the WWF team, guys who one would never thought would ever team up together to form a five-man team, Shawn Michaels, the Rock, I.R.S., Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, and Davey Boy Smith, all have different wrestling styles that I think would complement each other throughout this match.
Than for the WCW team, same as the WWF team, no one would ever see these five men team up, from Hogan to Flair, Hall and Nash, and Mr. Perfect. No one on each team would fully trust each of his team mates, if not argue and fight with them during the match, which would be very interesting on what team would win.
Announcers: Tony Schiavone (WCW), Vince McMahon (WWF), and Joey Styles (ECW)
WWE Champion Triple H, World Heavyweight Champion Shawn Michaels, WWE Intercontinental Champion Ric Flair, and Undisputed WWE World Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and Edge.
TNA World Champion Kurt Angle, TNA X-Division Champion A.J. Styles, TNA Legends Champion Mick Foley, and TNA World Tag Team Champions Booker T. and Scott Steiner.
Announcers: Jim Ross (WWE), Mike Tenay (TNA), and Don West (TNA).
Out of the three matches, I can see WWE beating TNA, WCW defeating WWF, and for the NWA versus the WWF match, it’s hard for me to call the match. Personally, the NWA/WWF match, I would pay more money to see that match than the other two. Reasoning behind such is because of the name value of those guys. But to conclude, I hope this article brought up some interesting match-ups for you all. This is Eric Darsie from Minnesota, chilling at work, goodbye!
