With This Ring #5: Survivor Series

February 27, 2020 @ 9:00 pm

In this edition of With This Ring, Ryan and Cindy discuss some of the greatest Survivor Series matches in history. They have a quick rundown of the history of the event starting as a move against Starrcade and trying to capitalize on Hulk/Andre, talk about how the style of match was different from other events and how much the Invasion flopped. They discuss how 20 guys in a match, and more importantly, 18 guys on the apron are probably too many people and Cindy gets really excited about Paul Roma’s ass. The pair also look at how often Survivor Series matches had high stakes, including can Steve Austin stun people? Also, Sting’s debut and Cindy not understanding what that means. Plus, looking at NXT’s first version of War Games, while looking forward to our own journey to War Games which was a few days away at the time. Come for Paul Roma’s ass and stay for discussions about how the American Airlines Arena bathrooms originally faced the streets.
