JSC Radio Ep. 56: #RetroReview – Survivor Series 1997

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s good people! 

As you recall, back in August, Episode 48 was the first official #RetroReviewwhich took a look back at SummerSlam 1997. Nothing like looking at something you were into as a teenager as a 37-year-old! Also, as you know, there will be a quarterly show like this that reviews one of the classic “Big 4” WWF/WWE Pay-Per-Views: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series.

After Episode 28 looked at Ric Flair’s incredible win in the 1992 Royal Rumble and Episode 36 looked at my all-time favorite WrestleMania matches, it was time to go all in and review a full PPV. And since I looked at SummerSlam 1997, I had to go back 20 years for the next Retro Review and this one was a monumental one: Survivor Series 1997. Yep. THAT one. And, yes, I will talk all about…you know what.

Remember, JSC Radio is on SoundcloudApple PodcastsStitcher Radio, and Google Play! The show is also on Twitter at @JSCRadio!
