Alternate Versions

The Coliseum Video release featured a cold opening with Gene Okerlund, the first two matches being swapped around, the second and third matches both being heavily edited, and five post-match interviews (the first four were conducted by Sean Mooney, while the last was conducted by Jesse Ventura):
  • Bad News Brown talks about how incompetent his teammates were in their match against The Ultimate Warrior's team, and that he wants a shot at Randy Savage's WWF World Championship.
  • After beating The Honky Tonk Man's team, The Ultimate Warrior talks about he will take on all comers for his WWF Intercontinental Championship.
  • André the Giant and Bobby Heenan gloat about Andre carrying his team to victory by squashing Jake Roberts and Tito Santana, as well as brush off the rumors that Andre is terrified of snakes.
  • Jake Roberts vows to get revenge on André the Giant.
  • Jesse Ventura asks Randy Savage about his reaction to Hulk Hogan hugging Miss Elizabeth after their victory over the Twin Towers' team, and Savage ignores the question and says that everything is fine in the Mega Powers. But Ventura isn't fooled that easily since he knows there is a little more to it than that, before he throws it back to Gene Okerlund, who then closes the PPV.

Adds Absolutely Nothing New
25 February 2017 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

After watching/reviewing the first edition of the Survivor Series recently, I gave it a rather average rating with the caveat that it needed to add something to the simple tag-team format. Unfortunately, the 2nd Annual Survivor Series (1988) stagnates instead, adding absolutely nothing to the proceedings.

If you like tag-team action, you'll like this event more than I. The tag format just isn't may favorite, and may prevent me from watching subsequent installments of this event.

What drags this '88 edition down even further is that I didn't really even get the feeling that too many character arcs were being advanced or created here. It just seemed like place-holding. The WWF still had some great personalities at this time in history, so it isn't a completely train wreck, but this is coasting in its highest form.

Thus, overall I was disappointed in the second installment of Survivor Series. If the event doesn't throw a few new things into the mix or find a fresher overall formula, I may not be tuning into subsequent installments.
