"Well McMahon and who ever made this DVD really screwed up it, wheater it was the fact that WWF was changing Video staff from Coliseum Video to Koch or Just McMahon doesn't want to recoginze some of the Surivior Series Events I don't know.What I do know is this is a very sloppy made DVD, featuring some matches from each year, some not very interesting or inportant ones which is was I care about, I would expect WWF videos areounf this time to be sloppyWhat bother's me is it's suppose to Best of Survivor Series 1987-1997 even though the tape fails to even show clips from the 1988 or 1992 editions of Surivior Series, both of Which had some good matches. I would have like to have seen 20-man eliminatation Survivor Series from 1988 or Shawn vs. Bret from 1992, but no.Instead This video has CLIPS(keyword) of the following matches...
- Hulk's team vs. Andre's team (1987)
- Warrior's team vs. Heenan's team (1989)
- Million $ Man's team vs. Dusty's team (1990)
- Hulk vs. Undertaker (1991)
- Hart's vs. Michael's team (1993)
- Bret vs. Backlund (1994)
- Undertaker vs. Yokozuna (1994)
- Bigelow vs. Goldust (1995)
- Austin vs Bret (1996)
- Mankind vs. Undertaker (1996)
- Mankind vs. Kane (1997)
- Owen vs. Austin (1997)
- Bret vs. Shawn in the famous Montreal Screw Job (1997) and at the end has McMahom tell his BS story about itThey missed some other important matches from past Survivor Series and put some mediocre one in instead, another thing that bothered me was that it only showed clips and not the full matchesNot Recommended"
Great Idea, bad picks for matches

"The Best of Survivor Series could have been so much better but it wasn't. Reason, [poor] picks from more or less the same era of the WWF(E). Honestly, number one reason for me, I would've traded anything to do with the Bam Bam/Goldust match. That and Survivor Series is all about the Survivor Matches. Granted yes there have been some memorable singles matches at Survivor Series but even so, the good ones weren't used and the most important one of all time (Hart vs Michaels, "Bret gets screwed") was basically swept underneth a rug. Dumb and [poor].I can think of atleast 5 matches that should have been on this DVD like, the first all woman Survivor Series match at the 1st ever Survivor Series, the 20 Man Tag Team Survivor match that had legendary names in it like the Bulsheviks, Strike Force, the Killer Bees and Even Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake. The 4 Doinks vs Bam Bam Bigelow's team, another hilarious match and a very good match as well. The Hart and Michaels match in FULL LENGTH! And of my all time favorites, the Return of Jimmy Superfly Snuka in 95 (or 96?).Again, could have been better. I'd skip this one and wait till a better one comes out."

"If your looking for a calssic moments tape you won't find it here most of the clips are of the guys they have right now and are trying to show the past, classic moments like Warrior and Heenan and teh horrible gobblety gooker are absent but is still worth the money you just might want to get the old videos to see teh classic stuff."
Not Very Good...Bad Picks for Matches

"The following matches are on this tape:The Undertaker's debut, Undertaker vs. Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart vs. Bob Backlund, The Ultimate Warrior's team vs. Andre the Giant's team, Hulk's team vs. Andre's team, Hart Family vs. Shawn Michael's team, Goldust vs. Bigelow, Bret Hart vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kane vs. Mankind, Owen Hart vs. Austin, & Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels While this may look like a solid bunch of matches, there's really nothing verry good about it. The video was VERY short, a bit less than an hour, and missed MANY highlights of Survivor Series' past, while showing many highlights of Survivor Series' past matches, but none of the really famous ones. While it does feature the infamous Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels 1997 Infamous Controversial confrontation, Owen's exciting turn on his brother, Bret, Bret/Austin's 1996 Grudge match, Undertaker's title win and debut, etc., many more of the legendary highlights have been forgotten. This includes the first battle between Bret and Shawn at the '92 Survivor Series, Sid/Shawn, Mankind/'Taker, Rock's debut (all in '96), etc. and they just plain didn't even cover three of the annual events.The video ocuses greatly on the Bret/Shawn '97 Screwjob, and includes the Vince McMahon interview in whole where Vince proclaims innocently like a little ... that, quote-on-quote, "Bret screwed Bret." Michael Cole commentates the whole video. They focused way too much on some matches, like Bigelow/Goldust, where they should have instead been focusing on the original Bret/HBK match in '92 and the Sid/Shawn match in '96. All in all, the main problem with this video was that it was SO short. When I watched it, it seemed to go by so fast, and was done practically by the time I started watching it. I do NOT reccomend it. Instead, go get "Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows" for the REAL story on the Bret/Vince screwjob.I was hoping, when I got this tape, for an exciting afternoon of rare footage and historic matchups, but what I got was a bad series of picks of matches that were on the tape. There were many other historic matches that should've been included, and that weren't. DON'T buy it. "Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows" is MUCH better!"
