One of my favourites Survivor matches was The Harts Vs Shawn Micheals and Jerry 'The King' Lawlers Knights. This was great has it had wrestlings first and best family in it(sorry 2nd after the McMahons), and it set up the excellent Owen Hart heel turn. Shawn Micheals was great in it and he got decked out by Stu Hart at one point. Bobby Heenan said something funny like "Stu used his false teeth to punch Shawn". It was funny the banter the commentators used to have about the late great Stu Hart and his wife Helen.
I assume Jim Ross had a lot to do with Steve Austin rising up and at least winning KotR. Without that win and the verbal beat down of Jake the Snake he was just kind of that guy that fought Savio Vega a whole bunch.
