STAMFORD – Looking to commemorate a landmark day in World Wrestling Entertainment history, WWE officials have declared November 9 “Steve Blackman Debut Day”, recognizing his pay-per-debut at the 1997 Survivor Series. Blackman, 52, was unable to attend the festivities and unable to comment on the honor, but a WWE representative spoke on the matter, citing Blackman’s five minutes of involvement in the Team Vader/Team Bulldog elimination bout, before his hasty elimination via countout.

“To debut in a pay-per-view match is truly something special, and it’s undoubtedly all anybody remembers from the evening,” public relations executive George Vancreef tells WrestleCrap. “With every passing year, that Survivor Series in Montreal is brought up by fans and performers of all walks, and given the magnitude of Steve’s involvement, it’s completely understandable. I mean, how many documentaries have been produced on that pay-per-view alone?”

    In honor of this momentous occasion 15 drunken marks will attempt to set The Guinnes Book of World Records for run ins during the Raw main event. They will be wearing tee shirts saying Blackman Lives Matter and will try to get placed into the Survivor Series WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament. The mob will be appeased when it is announed that the reunited Head Cheese will recieve a twg team title match opportunity at the ppv instead.

    Blackman was cool. He gave the impression that he could kill you.

    18 year anniversary (according to WWE, at least) of Steve Blackman

    Seeing this article with the gif next to it of Dixie geeking out goes beyond absurd.

    He was pretty awesome, I’d take Blackman/Snow over the Usos or Matadors anyday.

  6. Neal says:

    Definitely the most memorable event to occur at the 1997 Survivor Series!
