On this day in Old School Pro Wrestling history on November 15, 1998, the WWF aired their annual Survivor Series PPV LIVE from The Kiel Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

The 1998 edition of the World Wrestling Federation’s traditional ‘Survivor Series’ event featured a 14-man tournament for the vacant WWF World Heavyweight Championship.

This Survivor Series didn’t feature a single classic Survivor Series Elimination match, but is still remembered as one of the better Survivor Series PPVs. The PPV ended with The Rock winning his first ever WWF World Title.

Also, the shortest match in WWF/E history took place at this event when The Rock pinned Big Boss Man in just 3 seconds during their tournament match. You can watch it below:
