The best traditional Survivor Series match ever?

It probably isn't the one most people would pick, but I absolutely love this classic from the 1995 edition of Survivor Series. And as we all celebrate Thanksgiving today, why can't I be thankful for an absolutely amazing women's match during the WWE's Thanksgiving pay-per-view tradition.

Alundra Blayze was soon to jump ship to WCW and do the unthinkable, but that didn't stop her from leading a team of great Japanese wrestlers: Chaparrita ASARI, Kyoko Inoue, & Sakie Hasegawa against her perennial rival Bertha Faye and her own unit of stellar AJW alums: Aja Kong, Lioness Asuka and Tomoko Watanabe. The match cemented a major new contender for Blayze in the form of the classic original Kong, the woman everyone's favorite Awesome competitor took her name from.

It will also make you hate Vince McMahon's treatment of women's wrestlers as well, because his commentary is patronizing at best. But even with him in the way, he can't stop eight women from putting on a classic.
