WWF Survivor Series 1991 & This Tuesday In Texas

Recommended Posts

There are some instances where Monsoon does go a little too far in chastising people. For example, the October '89 MSG show that's on 24/7 right now, Monsoon spends a full minute ripping apart Bret Hart after he didn't "drive with the legs" during a backslide on Dino Bravo and talking about how Bret usually isn't that sloppy. Did he seriously need to rant and bury Bret about a fucking backslide for a full minute?

Both guys' bodies had made major changes in just the previous six days, for whatever that's worth and probably very little. I think a lot of people looked at this match, with one guy who usually does nothing against another guy who almost always is terrible as a stinker before it started. And aside from a three-minute fullnelson spot which Monsoon ruined by emphasizing the hold wasn't properly applied (which ruined all the intensity of a possible near submission, which they certainly needed if they were going to use a hold for three minutes), this was a good match. These guys are best friends in real life and Bulldog did a lot of good stuff here.

 

Hey, if someone can not execute a full nelson properly, Monsoon should point out that it's all fucked up.

 

I find it surprising that he gets criticism for this too. This is one of the reasons why I liked Monsoon. He would treat it like a legitimate sport, and if a move wasn't executed properly or somebody didn't hook a leg on a pinfall attempt or tried to win a match with a chinlock, he would call them out on it.

 

Yeah, I liked Monsoon for that too. Sometimes Stevie Wonder could see the mistake, so Monsoon paying attention and mentioning it wasn't insulting.

Question about Savage "retiring" for a few months. What was the story backstage? Did Savage just want to take a few months off and they made this angle for it? Or was the whole retiring story part of it from the start?

I think Savage's marriage with Elizabeth was crumbling and he wanted some time off in an attempt to save it.

I remember going to Survivor Series 1991 here in Detroit. It was a fun event. I believe it was my first time seeing the Undertaker in person. Definitely one of my favorite Survivor Series pay-per-view events, mostly since it was my first time going to a Survivor Series event.

 

I enjoyed seeing this on WWE 24/7 Classics On Demand.
