Building the ultimate 5 on 5 Survivor Series dream match
With Survivor Series 2017 just around the corner, many wrestling fans across the world will be reflecting on the long history of the PPV, sharing stories of their favourite matches and moments.
Originally started as a way to capitalise on the huge amount of business the company was doing with the Hogan vs. Andre feud following Wrestlemania 3, Survivor Series has stood the test of time and will likely be included in every WWE calendar year from now until the end of time (or at least the end of the company).
That being said, the focus of the PPV has definitely shifted over the years. While the traditional 5 on 5 elimination match was the key part of the event, nowadays it plays second fiddle to the main event singles match over one of the two world titles.
So, in the spirit of reliving the past, here are the competitors that we believe would make up the ultimate 5 on 5 Survivor Series dream match:
#1 Babyface - Hulk Hogan
WWE Superstars will come and go, but there can only be one man who kicked started the company's transition from middle of the road territory to a global conglomerate.
As Triple H recently said in an interview, the WWE is generational, every age group has their own set of favourite superstars, but no matter your age, the vast majority of us would put Hogan's name down for any kind of inter-generational dream match such as this.
Hogan might have shocked the world back in 1996 by turning heel and joining the NWO, but as far as his WWE career goes, he was the epitome of babyface wrestling. Forever the showman, Hogan would vanquish the villain across the ring from him and then entertain the audience long after the cameras were turned off.
The Hulkster's inclusion in this match will easily transform it into the showcase spectacle it needs to be.
