Tag Team Tuesday: The First Survivor Series Main Event

tag team tuesday

With Survivor Series less than two weeks away, we look back at the first ever Survivor Series on Tag Team Tuesday.

We see multi-man tag team matches on wrestling programming all the time now. But back in 1987, seeing this many men in one match was a big deal.

That is why Survivor Series 1987 was a unique experience to many fans at the time. Seeing so many wrestlers in one ring was cool. Nowadays, the reason people don’t care for the elimination tag team matches in the WWE is because big tag matches happen every other week on TV.

The main event of the 1987 Survivor Series saw the team of Andre the Giant, Rick Rude, King Kong Bundy, One Man Gang and Butch Reed vs Hulk Hogan, Bam Bam Bigelow, Ken Patera, Paul Orndorff and Don Muraco.
