WWE PPV Flashbacks: Survivor Series - November 14, 1999

Survivor Series
November 14, 1999
Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, MI

After doing away with traditional survivor elimination tag matches the year prior in favour of a memorable elimination tournament, in 1999 the WWF put the focus back on the classic elimination style match, as the card would feature a mix of them amongst the regular matches. Our main event tonight, or what it was supposed to be, was a triple threat match for the WWF Championship, with the reigning heel champion Triple H putting his gold on the line against the two most popular men in the company - Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock. But we'll get into that later on. After the past few years of controversy at this event (Montreal, Rock as the Corporate Champion), Survivor Series was being billed as a controversial event this year. Lets see if that continued shall we? Please follow me on Twitter at @Mpmcc91 and leave any feedback as well as thoughts on the show.

Our opening video package is all about the main event which I just mentioned. We head into the arena where our announce team of Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler welcome us to the show.

Elimination Tag Match:
The Godfather, D'Lo Brown, Mosh & Thrasher vs Faarooq, Bradshaw, Bubba Ray Dudley & D-Von Dudley

We kick the night off with an elimination tag match. The first of a few tonight. On the one side we have the Headbangers, who haven't done much of note lately, although they are faces again, along with the newly formed (or reunited) team of former Nation members Godfather & D'Lo Brown. They get a pretty good pop as they head out to the ring with the Hoes of course. The other team is a little strange, as we have the Acolytes along with the Dudley Boyz, who have been at odds with one another recently going back to Unforgiven a couple of months ago. The Dudleys have issues with their opponents as well though, having got involved in the Headbangers matches, and making comments about the Godfather's hoes in recent weeks. The Acolytes really seem like they were thrown into this one to fill out the team. Anyway, our first elimination comes early on here as Bradshaw hits Thrasher with the Clothesline from Hell a few minutes in. His partner doesn't fair much better, as Mosh falls victim to a 3D shortly after, which sees him pinned by Bubba. With the 2 to 4 disadvantage for the former Nation members, D'Lo goes at it with Bradshaw, but Bradshaw ends up whacking his opponent with a chair, which causes him to get disqualified. Yeah, the Acolytes were still in that Attitude era tweener phase. Anyway, with D'Lo down, D-Von attempts to cover, but Faarooq pulls him off, and the two teammates brawl on the outside, continuing the issues between their respective teams, and both getting counted out in the process. With the numbers back in their favour, D'Lo & Godfather work over Bubba, with the Godfather hitting the Dudley with the Ho Train. From there, D'Lo capitalises to score the win with a Lo Down at a quick 9:26. The survivors are D'Lo & Godfather, in what was a bit of an upset when you look at where these teams go from here. This was okay for what it was, just a quick way to kill ten minutes and get the crowd going. Godfather could always be relied on to pop the crowd after all. Nothing offensive here.
Grade: *1/2

Up next we get a video package hyping the debut of a certain gold medal winner. Oh its true, its true. Its Kurt Angle by the way. His first WWF match is up next.

Shawn Stasiak vs Kurt Angle
There's no feud behind this one, this is simply all about the debut of the young rookie by the name of Kurt Angle, who would go on to become one of the all time greats in the world of sports entertainment. His signing had been hyped heavily in the weeks heading into this show, as the WWF played up the fact that he was a legitimate olympic gold medallist, and would be making his debut at the Survivor Series PPV. His opponent is also making his first appearance on PPV, although Stasiak is basically just enhancement talent here to give Kurt an opponent. He hasn't been doing much despite being signed back in May. Anyway, Angle has his awesome theme music, although the You Suck chants wouldn't start for a few years. The two men lock up, and the crowd starts chanting boring within seconds, because, well this is 1999 and fans would much rather see wild brawls than technical wrestling. Angle reacts to this by getting out of the ring and grabbing a mic, telling the crowd not to insult him because he's a gold medallist, solidifying his status as a heel. From there the match continues, and its basically just an exhibition for Angle to show his stuff. Stasiak goes on offence and attempts a diving splash from the top, but Angle catches him. He counters right into his Olympic Slam which scores the pinfall at 5:57, with Angle being victorious in his first match. As far as the match itself goes, this was nothing special, but it is memorable simply for being Angle's debut with the company. He would go on to have many better matches, and thats certainly an understatement.
Grade: *

Up next we see footage from earlier in the evening on Heat. Triple H attempted to set a trap for his challengers by calling them out to the ring, only for the reformed DX to jump them. The plan backfired though as Austin and Rock got the better of their attackers, much to the dismay of the champion.

Elimination Tag Match:
Val Venis, Mark Henry, Steve Blackman & Gangrel vs British Bulldog, Rodney, Joey Abs & Pete Gas

Another pretty strange elimination tag match here just designed to get these guys on the show. Bulldog has certainly fallen a long way down the card since feuding with the Rock last month. His allegiance with the Mean Street Posse here stems from the fallout of his causing Stephanie McMahon temporary memory loss back at Rebellion. Stephanie's fiancee Test (who for some reason is not in this match) was looking for revenge and challenged Bulldog to a cage match on Raw is War, a match in which the Posse showed up to put a beating on Test, before Shane McMahon made the save, ending their association. The opposing team here is quite strange, as Val Venis & Mark Henry are already back to being faces despite turning heel only a few months prior (hey, its 1999!), whilst Blackman also seems to be a face now for reasons I cannot quite remember. I guess Val has forgiven him for their issues a few months back. Gangrel isn't really doing much and was near the end of his tenure here, so despite being a heel I suppose he can slide in as well. Anyway, this is another quick match, with Blackman scoring the first elimination following a martial arts kick to Pete Gas a few minutes in. Things don't get much better for the Posse from there, as Gangrel comes in and hits Rodney with the Impaler DDT to score another pinfall. Abs doesn't last much longer as Henry comes in and hits him with the big splash to completely eliminate the Posse from the match. They were glorified jobbers by this point, and it shows here. Bulldog comes in and shows he still has some fight in him as he takes it to his opponents despite the one on four disadvantage. He eliminates Gangrel with a superplex, and then sends Blackman packing as well following a fisherman's suplex. This leaves him up against the porn star and the sex addict. Hey they would have made a good team at this point. The numbers game proves to be too great from here, as Henry & Venis team up on their opponent. Henry hits Bulldog with a splash, which brings Val in to follow up with the Money Shot to pick up the win for his team at 9:08. Another short survivor match, with Henry & Val surviving. Again nothing special, but short enough that its nothing offensive. I probably would have put Test on the face team rather than Gangrel though considering he was still really a heel. Its weird that he wasn't in a match on this show, as he's really the one who had an issue with the Bulldog.
Grade: *1/4

Michael Cole is now backstage as he heads to the women's locker room to get a word with the competitors prior to their upcoming match. He ends up rubbing oil on Ivory, because the women are just T&A in 1999.

Tori, Mae Young, Fabulous Moolah & Debra vs Ivory, Luna, Jacqueline & Terri Runnels
This one stems from Moolah's shocking victory over Ivory at No Mercy to win the WWF Women's Championship. On a subsequent episode of Raw is War, Moolah would come out and attempt to forfeit the women's championship, stating that was officially retiring from action. Ivory would interrupt however, not satisfied with being handed the title. The former champion said Moolah was obliged to step into the ring for her designated rematch, and the two faced off once again, with Ivory coming out victorious to regain the Women's title. A few weeks later on Smackdown, this match was announced, following the various women getting involved in scuffles with one another. I should also point out that Luna is a heel again for no real reason after her brief feud with Ivory a few months back. Tori has also started dating Kane, which will become a part of a bigger story down the line. Anyway, this is not an elimination match, its just one fall to a finish. Thats a good thing as this match is awful. 1999 is definitely the low point for the women's division in WWF/E and it shows here. Moolah & Mae start this one out by attacking Ivory in the aisle, but the champion fights them off and gets in the ring to start the match against Tori. Very basic stuff here with all the women going back and forth with each other. Moments later, Moolah & Mae hit Ivory with a double clothesline, which allows Moolah to pin the champion at 1:50 to pick up the win for the faces. After all, this feud HAD to continue didn't it? Mercifully short, but still an absolute mess. Ivory should have just gone over here. After the match Moolah and Ivory get into another scuffle.
Grade: DUD

Up next we get comments from the now heel X-Pac. He rips on his former partner Kane, claiming he is jealous of X-Pac, and that he had to carry the team for the past number of months. We follow up with comments from Tori who says that she and Kane are not giving credence to X-Pac's recent actions. The explosion of the former tag team champions is up next.

Kane vs X-Pac
We saw some issues between these guys going back to their elimination match at No Mercy last month, but the tension has finally exploded here. As I mentioned earlier, X-Pac joined up with former DX members Triple H and the New Age Outlaws, which I'll get into more detail about in our main event. Despite reuniting DX as a heel faction, X-Pac assured Kane that he still had his back, leading to the former tag team champions facing off against the Dudley Boyz on an episode of Smackdown. During that match, X-Pac double crossed Kane, hitting him with a low blow, costing the match. Following his heel turn, X-Pac would tell Kane that he didn't deserve to team with a DX member, which led to the two facing off on Raw is War. Before the match could get going however, Kane was assaulted by all of DX, setting up the rematch tonight. Anyway, X-Pac jumps Kane before the bell as he is setting off his pyro to get this one under way, but Kane quickly gains control over his smaller opponent. The action goes to the outside briefly, before returning to the ring, where X-Pac utilised his speed advantage to deliver a series of spinning heel kicks to his opponent. He looks to follow up with the Bronco Buster, but Kane avoids it and regains his momentum, delivering a chokeslam to his former tag partner. Before the big red machine can put X-Pac away though, Road Dogg runs in and distracts him. The distraction allows X-Pac to deliver the X-Factor but it doesn't keep Kane down. Kane comes back and goes for a tombstone on his opponent, but at this point DX strikes again, with Triple H rushing to the ring and smashing him in the face with the WWF title belt. Thats enough to cause the DQ at 4:15. DX continue to attack Kane after the match, which brings Tori out to try to get them to stop. She gets between Kane and DX as X-Pac goes for the Bronco Buster, but in the ensuing chaos, X-Pac accidentally nails her with a kick to the head. DX flee as Kane snaps and B.B (our resident EMT) comes to Tori's aid. Really more of an angle to add some more fire (no pun intended) to this feud. Also did a good job in establishing the new DX.
Grade: *1/2

We now go backstage to the Rock. He gets interrupted by Triple H, and the two get into a brawl before their match later on.

Elimination Handicap Match:
Big Show vs Big Bossman, Prince Albert, Viscera & Mideon

So Big Show is officially a face again, and this match stems out of a series of mind games from the reigning Hardcore Champion, Big Bossman. The Bossman actually one that title back in October, defeating old foe Al Snow on an episode of Smackdown in a match also involving the Big Show. In the weeks heading into this show, Big Show acknowledged that his father had cancer (in reality he had already passed years prior). Bossman would get wind of this news and prior to a scheduled match between the two on Raw is War, Bossman had an officer tell Big Show that his father had died, resulting in the big man leaving the arena. It was revealed to be a hoax, and in the weeks that followed, Show had a series of run ins with the Bossman, and his protege Prince Albert. Big Show's father would eventually pass a few weeks later, which led to the Bossman expressing his sympathies by an incredibly insincere poem which only added fuel to the fire between the two on Raw is War. This of course led to the memorable episode of Smackdown where Big Show attended his father's funeral, only for the Big Bossman to interrupt the ceremony and hook the casket to his vehicle, driving off with it as Big Show attempted to jump on top of it, only to fall. That brings us to this match, however it was supposed to be a standard elimination tag match, with Show teaming up with Taka Michinoku, Funaki and the Blue Meanie. Instead, Big Show wanted to take out his frustration on his opponents all alone, so he decimated his teammates on Heat before the PPV, making this a four on one handicap match. Now I say match loosely, as this is really just a squash. Mideon is the first man to go down as he takes a chokeslam seconds into the match to be eliminated. This is followed by a chokeslam to Albert, then Viscera moments later, to bring it down to just Big Show and the Hardcore Champion in less than a minute. Instead of sticking around, Bossman decides he'll live to fight another tail and hightails it, getting counted out to give the win to the Big Show at 1:26. The feud is far from settled though, and Big Show chases Bossman to the back after the match. Not really a match here once again, as you can tell from the length. This would not be the last we saw of the Big Show on this night.
Grade: N/A

Up next, what appears to be a standard interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin becomes something much more significance. He is interrupted by Triple H, much like Rock was earlier, but in the ensuing chaos, Trips lures Austin into the parking lot. Trips manages to escape, but in the meantime Austin is run down by a speeding car in the parking lot, with the driver not being revealed. Everyone is shocked, and Mr McMahon arrives on the scene, along with Shane, Stephanie and Test. Vince immediately blames Triple H (hey maybe he was onto something), but Triple H and the rest of DX show up and claim they had nothing to do with it. Vince tells them to get out of his sight whilst paramedics place Austin into an ambulance, and it is announced that Austin will obviously not be participating in our main event tonight. In reality, this was the way that Austin was written out of storylines to finally have proper surgery on his neck that was initially injured all the way back in 1997. He would miss almost a year of action, which was a huge loss for the WWF being their main face and all. Back at the announce table, King attempts to make light of the incident, whilst JR is disgusted.

WWF Intercontinental Championship:
Chyna (c) w/Miss Kitty vs Chris Jericho

Having defeated Jeff Jarrett back at No Mercy in his last WWF match, Chyna is now the first ever female I.C champion in the history of the company, and in the weeks heading into this show, she transitioned into a rivalry with a new opponent. This all came about on an episode of Raw is War in October, when the new champion issued an open challenge to anyone in the locker room. The challenge was answered by Chris Jericho, who started to insult Chyna, only to be attacked by the reigning champion in response. From there, the two individuals had a series on run ins with each other over the weeks bringing us to their match tonight. A fairly basic build, but the feud was in its early stages. By the way, with Jarrett gone, Kitty has now joined up with Chyna and is in her corner for this one, dressed in similar attire. The announcers are still talking about the Austin situation as this one gets going, with Jericho shoving Kitty down and brawling with Chyna on the outside. Jericho gets the upper hand and gets his opponent back in the ring, but the tide turns when he attempts to deliver a low blow to Chyna, only for it to have no effect. Chyna launches a comeback, but Jericho fires back with a bulldog. The crowd are actually getting behind Jericho here, which is why he was turned face shortly down the track. He clotheslines Chyna out to the floor and gets back in Kitty's face, planting a kiss on her, only to be speared by his opponent afterwards. Back in the ring, Jericho starts to get frustrated following the Lionsault missing and Chyna firing back with a DDT. Meanwhile the referee gets bumped accidentally, and Jericho attempts to capitalise by grabbing the I.C belt and whacking Chyna with it. By the time the ref recovers, Chyna kicks out, and she responds with a Pedigree, but it doesn't keep Y2J down. I bet Hunter didn't like that. Anyway, Jericho manages to counter Chyna's offence into the Walls of Jericho, but she manages to get to the ropes. She takes a page out of Jericho's book as she hits him with a low blow with much greater effect, whilst Kitty distracts the official. The champion then follows up with a pedigree off the top to pick up the victory at 13:34. A lot of people were upset about Jericho losing here, but it wasn't the end of the world. The match was actually pretty solid, and I don't think Chyna gets the credit she deserves in the ring. A fun match here, but this rivalry was far from over.
Grade: ***

Backstage Shane, along with Test and Stephanie, is attempting to deal with the fallout from the Austin incident. Triple H comes in and claims that he is completely innocent of the hit and run, but wants to know if his match is now going to be one on one. Shane tells him to get out and that he will deal with it.

Elimination Tag Match:
Edge, Christian, Matt Hardy & Jeff Hardy w/Terri Runnels vs Hardcore Holly, Crash Holly, Grandmaster Sexay & Scotty 2 Hotty

A few things to talk about here. Of course, Edge & Christian and the Hardy Boyz are fresh off their AWESOME ladder match last month at No Mercy. The Hardys won that match to gain Terri as their manager, and the next night on Raw is War turned face, ditching Gangrel and showing respect to their opponents the night before, hence their being on the same team here. The Holly Cousins have actually had a brief run with the tag titles in the weeks heading into this show, but they are no longer the champions which I will get into later in the show. Grandmaster Sexay & Scotty 2 Hotty are the former Brian Christopher & Scott Taylor, making their return to PPV here, as the former Too Much is now named Too Cool. They are still cocky heels here, although they would have a change in attitude soon enough. They returned to TV interfering in a match between the Holly Cousins and Edge & Christian on an episode of Raw, which led to the Hardy Boyz making the save to set up our last elimination tag match of the night. Anyway, Edge starts this one out with Scotty to get us underway. They go at it for a bit and we get a couple of rotations of guys going at it. Edge eventually comes back in and starts dishing out spears, only for Hardcore Holly to roll him up in the ensuing mayhem to score the first elimination of the match. A few moments later, Scotty 2 Hotty tags in and eliminates Matt Hardy with a tornado DDT, giving the heels the 4 on 2 advantage. Jeff comes in and Scotty goes for the Worm, although its not nearly as over as it would be in a few months time. Too Cool work over Jeff for a bit, but some heel miscommunication between the Hollys lead to Christian & Jeff take control. Jeff scores the first elimination for his team following a 450 splash on Scotty 2 Hotty, but the remaining Hardy is sent packing about a minute later courtesy of a top rope legdrop from Grandmaster Sexay. Christian, now alone, comes in and eliminates Sexay with the impaler DDT, bringing his opponents down to the Hollys. The numbers game works in favour of the heels, but after being beat on for a bit, Christian fires back with the Unprettier on Crash Holly to bring things down to a one on one affair. Hardcore and Christian go at it, but Hardcore rolls the young Canadian up to win the match for his team at 14:27. Hardcore Holly is your sole survivor in a decent enough match, although it was nothing spectacular. A good showcase for these teams, although the result surprises me considering the Hollys probably had the least bright future as a team of those involved here. I probably would have put the faces over, but its no biggie in the end.
Grade: **1/2

Up next, we get an update from Shane McMahon re the Austin situation. Shane tells us Vince has gone to the medical facility with Austin and that the Rattlesnake is presently undergoing an evaluation by the doctors. Needless to say he will not be participating in our main event, but Shane will find a replacement as the match will still be a triple threat.

WWF Tag Team Championship:
New Age Outlaws (c) vs Mankind & Al Snow

A few things have happened on the tag title scene since we saw the Rock & Sock Connection as champs back at No Mercy. Tension between the Rock and Mankind arose when Al Snow found a copy of Mankind's book 'Have a Nice Day', which he had given to Rock in the trash. Rock denied throwing the book out, but Mankind was upset all the same, and later that night on Raw is War, this dissension cost the champs the titles in a match against the Holly Cousins. In the weeks that followed, Mankind began to bond with Al Snow, and ended up teaming with him to defeat the Holly Cousins to win the titles a few weeks later on Smackdown. Their reign would be short lived though, as the duo were defeated by the New Age Outlaws a few days later on Raw, which brings us to the rematch tonight. Foley is nearing the end of his full time run here, and he's not in the best shape and wearing horrible blue sweat pants, although he'll get himself back into good condition within a month or so. The Outlaws are heels now after reforming DX under Triple H's leadership a few weeks ago. Billy Gunn starts this one out with Mankind and it doesn't take long for the action to spill to the outside. Back in the ring, Road Dogg and Snow tag in, and the Outlaws gain control working over Snow. Snow ends up getting the tag to Mankind, and he goes to work on the Outlaws, cleaning house until Gunn nails him with the Fameasser. Mankind kicks out when Road Dogg covers, so the Dogg follows up with a pumphandle slam, only for Snow to come in and hit him with the Snow Plow, which allows Mankind to follow up with Socko. This causes the match to break down, as Gunn sends Snow crashing into the ring steps on the outside. The Outlaws then put Mankind away, as Billy covers after hitting a spike piledriver on his opponent. The champs retain the titles at 13:59. A fairly basic match for the most part, but I wasn't really expecting much from these guys at this point. As I said, Mick Foley had better days left in the tank.
Grade: *3/4

The main event is up next, but first we get a recap of the events earlier in the broadcast involving Austin being run down.

WWF Championship:
Triple H (c) vs The Rock vs Big Show

Now obviously the original version of this match was set up by the end of the Austin/HHH match at No Mercy last month, where Rock accidentally cost Austin the title. The next night on Raw is War, both Rock and Austin claimed they should be the number one contender, so Mr McMahon, still at odds with Triple H, decided the champion would defend his title in a triple threat match at Survivor Series. On the next weeks episode of Raw, Austin & Rock would team together to face the New Age Outlaws, only to be beat down by an interfering X-Pac and Triple H, reforming DX as a heel stable after disbanding earlier in the year. By the way, Chyna was not a member of the new DX as she had officially split away from Triple H and was fully a face by this point. With Triple H leading the helm, DX would wage war against Mr McMahon and his family, resulting in a series of run ins with the McMahons and Test. Triple H's focus for the past month has really been more on that front, but the challengers were very keen to regain the title tonight, so the match was a big deal. Of course, Austin is not in the match anymore, and his replacement is a man we saw earlier in the night - the Big Show! Rock and Triple H both are shocked when Show's music hits, and the big man starts out dominating his opponents as this match gets started. The action goes out of the ring around ringside, with all three men going at it, but the Rock gains momentum when he hits Show with the People's Elbow back in the ring. Triple H breaks the pin to save his title, but Big Show takes control, slamming Rock and brawling with the Game up the aisle. Rock comes out and nails Show with a fire extinguisher, which leads to him working together with Trips to take on the big man. Together they manage to suplex Show through the announce table to a huge pop before going back at one another with a brawl into the crowd. Back in the ring, the referee goes down in the action, and after a few finisher reversals, Rock hits Trips with the Rock Bottom. With nobody to count, Shane McMahon runs down wearing a referee shirt and attempts to count the three, but Big Show has got back up and pulls him out of the ring. Show dominates once more, sending Rock into the ring steps. Meanwhile Triple H attempts to use the title belt as a weapon, but Shane stops him, before getting pedigreed for his efforts. Show goes to work on Triple H, which brings the rest of DX out to his aid, but Show fights them off. Mr McMahon then rushes to the ring, having come back from the hospital and picks up the title belt. He nails Triple H with it due to their past history, and Show follows up with a chokeslam to the Game which gets the three at 16:13. Big Show has won the WWF Championship for the first time in his career, in what was quite the shocker at the time. It would end up being a quick reign to free Triple H up for his match next month, but it was a good moment for the once again fan friendly giant. Of course, there was no way this match could have lived up to the initially advertised triple threat involving Austin, and a lot of people were upset about that, but they did what they had to do here. I've heard people say Test should have been in Show's spot here, but in my mind he really wasn't ready especially if he was going to win the title, whereas Show had flirted with the main event scene since his arrival at this point. We would sadly never get Austin/Rock/Triple H on a major PPV stage (the ULTIMATE dream match as a fan growing up in this era). Overall a fairly underwhelming match with a feel good ending that was the only viable way of backing out of the corner the WWF was in with Austin's injury.
Grade: **

Overall this was a very underwhelming show, as you can see from the grades, with only one match making the *** mark. Part of that had to do with how short most of the matches were. Ten matches is far too many for a three hour PPV - you would rarely even get that many these days on a four hour Wrestlemania these days - but that was the way things were done in 1999. The show probably could have been saved to a degree had Austin been healthy, as I think a triple threat match between arguably the three greatest names of the Attitude era would have been amazing, but we can't win them all. This was very much a storyline driven event which would set things up for the next few months, especially as far as the top of the card was concerned. For now the Big Show is the reigning champion. He obviously will have unsettled business with the former champion, but what will happen to his highly personal rivalry with the Big Bossman? Surely the tension is about to explode between the McMahon family and DX as well. And where does the Rock fit into all this? Those are the questions arising out of this show. And of course who ran down Stone Cold, but we'll have to wait for a while on that one. From a quality perspective, its a poor show, but its a fun watch to throw in to see everyone from this era.

Three Stars of the Night:
1. Chyna - say what you will, but on a night where most matches were a letdown, she did a good job in her title defence. She didn't look out of place and managed to put on a solid match with her opponent. Which brings me to...
2. Chris Jericho - the Chyna feud was his first real 'feud' in the WWF, and it got his character over which in turn would boost his growing popularity. Whilst he would have much better matches down the line, Y2J was on the way to becoming the man with millions of Jerichoholics.
3. Big Show - looked like an absolute monster in his handicap match and ended the night winning his first WWF Championship. A good night for the big man in my book.

FINAL GRADE: 3 out of 10
