Ahhhh, the greatest Thanksgiving tradition of all. No, not turkey, family, or football — it’s wrasslin’. Or at least it used to be. The Survivor Series took place on Thanksgiving from 1987-1990. In the spirit of things, the intro to Survivor Series ’89 features the wrestlers and exactly what they are thankful for. The answers, as you can imagine, are pretty interesting and range from “polka dots” (Dusty Rhodes) to “sardine stuffing” (the Bushwhackers) to “weqjerkljfdksjfdklfjds” (Ultimate Warrior). The cherry on top of it all is Vince McMahon’s spirited announcing of every single Survivor Series participant. Oh, how I long for the days of a full card of elimination tag-team matches complete with team captains and goofy team names.
