15Awesome: Team Powers of Pain
One of the most notable bits of the first two Survivor Series shows was the tag-team match where five teams formed as partners. Thus, you would see two guys in the ring with another 18 hanging on the apron watching and when one guy was eliminated, so was his partner.
For ’88, the Powers of Pain led the Rockers, The British Bulldogs, the Hart Foundation and the Young Stallions. Those were five of the best teams in WWE at the time and watching Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart on the same side was something pretty notable.
The match was a good one and notable for the amazing double turn as Mr. Fuji turned on Demolition to eliminate them. He then allied with the Powers to help them win and turn them heel. However, that doesn’t take away from how the Powers led a great gathering of tag teams that shows how strong the division was back then.
