5 worst matches in WWE Survivor Series history
WWE Survivor Series has endured something of a rollercoaster reputation in the years since its inception thirty years ago in 1987. It started off as one of the most innovative pay per views in professional wrestling being completely based around elimination tag team matches but the gloss soon wore off and it was relegated to being the least important of the Big Four WWE pay per views.
A large reason for this has been the number of lacklustre matches that have occurred on WWE Survivor Series match cards over the years. There have been some truly terrible bouts - be in the traditional Survivor Series match or just any other regular match. So, without any further ado, here is our list of the 5 worst matches in WWE Survivor Series history:
#5 Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart (Survivor Series 1997)
Ahh, the infamous Montreal Screwjob incident. The heated rivalry between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart came to a head at WWE Survivor Series 1997 and it ended with one of the most talked-about incidents in the history of professional wrestling.
To be fair, the match itself was really good and could have been one of the best matches of the two men's career, but unfortunately, the finish absolutely destroyed all chances of that. No matter how good the work before the end was, it was a disgrace to the business and an awful end to Bret's WWE career.
