The 1991 Survivor Series was an overall forgettable event.
Stacked top to bottom with a legion of WWE performers in the twilight of their career – guys like “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter and Tito Santana – and characters even hardcore wrestling fans couldn’t pick out of a police lineup, the PPV is rarely mentioned or remembered as anything more than the standard WWE show for that period.
But while the Thanksgiving Eve affair – now 25 years old – isn’t considered a classic, it is arguably one of the most important shows in WWE history. Fans in attendance, and those watching on closed circuit TV, would bear witness to the commencement of two legendary careers.
