Novel Concept, But Tag Format Stagnates
26 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The concept behind the Survivor Series (this 1987 edition being the first of its kind) is an interesting one. Squash together a bunch of WWF superstars into large tag teams and let them battle it out!

The problem, however, is that all four of the matches in this event are essentially the same. This is a limitation of all tag matches (especially those without partners that work together all the time)...they all seem to follow the same pattern: One guy gets beat up for awhile, then tags in the fresh man who clears house (Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart made his career on this!).

Thus, the fact that this is essentially all tag-team work makes me give it no more than a middling three-star rating. Fortunately, the WWF had a ridiculous surplus of superstars at this particular point in time, so at least the personalities were fun to watch, but it just seemed to grow stale as it went along.

If you like tag-team action more than I, you'll love the '87 Survivor Series. I, for one, am hoping that the next edition throws a few more wrinkles into the proceedings.
