Survivor Series 1990 was the fourth annual Survivor Series pay-per-view professional wrestling event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). It took place on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 1990 at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

This Survivor Series saw the WWF debut of The Undertaker, who went on to become WWF Champion in the next Survivor Series one year later, and the infamous debut of the Gobbledy Gooker, which many people consider the worst gimmick of all time. In addition, Sgt. Slaughter — who was then using an Iraqi sympathizer heel gimmick — delivered a promo where he insulted servicemen stationed in Iraq for Thanksgiving during Operation Desert Shield. Randy Savage, as the "Macho King", was interviewed by "Mean" Gene Okerlund, and issued a challenge to the Ultimate Warrior for the WWF Championship. Ravishing Rick Rude was replaced by Haku after being suspended by WWF President Jack Tunney for insulting the mother of the Big Boss Man; in reality, the "suspension" explained Rude's departure from the WWF over a dispute.

Notes

  • The Gobbledygooker was a human-turkey hybrid (Hector Guerrero in a turkey costume) that hatched from a giant "egg". In an interview found the on the DVD Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story, Hector said that he was convinced the character would be very popular with children, but was proven wrong when the Gooker was jeered at by the entire crowd.
  • The Visionaries was the first team to have all its members survive. They are also only the second team to have four survivors, the first being the face team in the 20-man, 10-tag team elimination match in the inaugural Series three years prior. Both teams feature Paul Roma as one of the four survivors.
  • Boris Zhukov replaced Akeem on Sgt. Slaughter's team, who had left the WWF. This was the second Series in a row in which Akeem was replaced. Akeem was replaced in 1989 due to injury.
  • Haku replaced Rick Rude on Earthquake's team, because Rude left the WWF after a contract dispute with Vince McMahon.
  • The Undertaker made his WWF debut as Ted DiBiase's mystery teammate.
  • As of 2007, this is the only Survivor Series to feature a match involving the survivors of each match in another Survivor Series rules match.
