As traditional and time-tested as Wrestlemania itself, Survivor Series has become a staple in yearly WWE viewing and, as it so happens, marks it's 30th birthday this year.

The PPV has treated us to some legendary title clashes. Let's have a look at five memorable clashes from the PPV.

#5 Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels - WWE Championship (1997)

Let's get the big one out of the way early. If you're a wrestling fan, unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know of the most infamous night in professional wrestling history. Bret Hart made no secret of his move to rival brand WCW and, with Vince McMahon of the belief that Hart was refusing to drop the belt to Shawn Michaels, left himself wide open for attack.

In the end, Vince and Shawn (along with the referee) concocted a plan to relieve 'The Hitman' of his gold without his knowledge. Hart understandably exploded and the rest, as they say, is history.

Despite being overshadowed by the drama, this was still a fine performance from both men and is well worth appreciating for the technical mastery at work.
