The Gobbedly Gooker debuts
While not a great gain to the wrestling industry, The Gobbedly Gooker was the culmination of a two month storyline over what would hatch from a giant egg.

Last week, we looked at the Top 50 Survivor Series Teams. This week, we explore a completely different aspect of WWE's second-oldest pay-per-view.
Let's be honest - as unique as the four-on-four or five-on-five elimination matches are, they aren't the only part of Survivor Series worth remembering. There have been a lot of traditional singles and tag team matches over the past 27 years, not to mention title changes, feuds, guest appearance, debuts, retirements and other memorable moments.
This week's Top 50 list counts down the best Survivor Series moments over the years and certainly isn't limited to the in-ring action. You may be surprised how many important things happened at the Thanksgiving Day Tradition.

With tension apparent during the entire match, Rock and Cena won handily, adding even more drama to their eventual main event.
