This came up early today, in a discussion I was having with some folks:

What is best thanksgiving day match?

Flair/Race?
Piper/Valentine?
Blanchard/Steamboat?
Tully/Magnum?

Kerry/Hayes?

something from Georgia?

something from Survivor Series?

(my vote was the I Quit match)

I seem to remember an epic Alex wright versus Tank Abbot match on Thunder.

There were probably at least three moves before the NWO B team came in an spray painted everyone.

It was awesome. Then we ate pie.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I go with Magnum/Tully, with honorable mentions for Rock n Roll/Russians cage and Rock n Roll/Andersons cage.
Georgia would have the 50-100k tag team tourney at the Omni on Thanksgiving, right?

Can Smackdown be on this list or not? If not, I go with Piper/Valentine match and probably Starcadde 1983 due to who packed the card was as well as the significant importance.

What happened to Thanksgiving? It used to be THE day for big pro wrestling shows.

It's quite simple. Thanksgiving night used to be Starrcade night. Then Vince put Survivor Series '87 on it, and said to the cable companies, "If you don't carry Survivor Series exclusively, you won't be able to carry WrestleMania."

Because Jim Crockett Promotions relied so much on pay-per-view revenue, and the PPV revenue from Starrcade was almost nil, Crockett was forced to sell to Ted Turner, who turned it into World Championship Wrestling. Starrcade '88 and every Starrcade after that was held in December.

And because Turner knew business but didn't know the wrestling business, we have the situation that we have today.

The following signature quote could very well have been spoken by Vince McMahon afterward:

My vote goes to the ten tag team Survivor Series elimination match at the inaugural Survivor Series in 1987. If you've never seen that match because you were too young or not alive or whatever, seek it out. Ten of the greatest tag teams of the era in the WWF going at it for over 40 minutes. There'll never be anything like it again. The ten team Survivor match in 1988 was almost as good too, but the original was tops.

Seems like someone would try and capitalize on Thanksgiving wrestling now that WWE doesn't give a crap about it anymore.

I'm glad he's coming back (if it's true) and hope he's healty, but it always bothered me when he stood on his head over the turnbuckle. I never understood why his opponent wouldn't have just pushed him off.
