10 Most Shocking WWE Survivor Series Moments

Yes, 1997 is in here...

9. The Ultimate Opportunist Strikes Again - 2008

Edge survivor series 2008

When the WWE Title match at Survivor Series 2008 was advertised as Triple H defending against Jeff Hardy and Vladimir Kozlov, fans probably expected one of those three men to leave the show holding the gold. 

However, Hardy was removed from the bout earlier in the show when he was found 'unconscious at the bottom of a hotel stairwell', giving us Triple H against Kozlov in a singles match instead. 

Lucky us, eh? 

But then that changed, too, when SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero turned it into a triple-threat match, inserting Edge into the equation. 

The Rated-R Superstar's appearance here was a surprise, as he hadn't been seen since being sent to hell at the end of SummerSlam months prior. 

And it would be the Ultimate Opportunist who walked out as champ, despite interference from the Charismatic Enigma, when he pinned The Game following a chair shot. 

The sneaky manner of the title win fit Edge's character perfectly and set up a three-way with Hardy and Triple H at the next month's Armageddon.
