    The Origins of the WWE Survivor Series

    The Origins of the WWE Survivor Series

    With the WWE Survivor Series on deck this weekend, we examine the history of the show itself. This is a selection from a podcast we recorded back in November 2016, a real deep dive on what led to WWE creating the event in 1987 (their second-ever yearly PPV, only behind WrestleMania). The rivalry between Jim Crockett Promotions and the WWF is examined in depth. If you enjoy this selection on the origins of the Survivor Series, check out the full podcast (Episode 13) from November 2016 as Ryan and Kyle go on to review the 1987, 1988, and 1989 shows in full.
