If the Survivor Series grand finale happened every year…

Hey Scott,

Thought your blog might like this. I think we all have big nostalgia for the 1990 Survivoe Series Grand Finale, and with SS on the horizon, I thought I’d take a look at what every years Grad Finale would have looked like.

Turns out, most of them suck. And a lot of years are illegible, either because they didn’t have any elimination matches, or they only had one, or only faces won, which happened often. So I’ve compiled the eligible ones below (and listed the non-eligible below.)

Take a look. It’s pretty fun stuff. Some of the earlier years would’ve made for cool matches. 

 

Hmm…I gotta say, I still like Andre’s chances in 1987.
