WWE hosts four major PPVs every year: Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam, and Survivor Series. Each of these major events takes place during one of the four seasons, and for many fans of WWE, these are highlight shows of the year. As it is currently the fall, it’s Survivor Series season, and the annual show traditionally has two teams competing against each other in elimination tag matches. Traditionally, teams of five eliminate each other, one by one, until only one wrestler is left standing.
Since Raw and Smackdown are currently shows where the superstars don’t crossover to fight each other, Survivor Series has become one of the few events of the year where wrestlers from the Monday night programming take on the Tuesday night show. In addition to these elimination matches, WWE has the champions of both Raw and Smackdown face each other, which is the only time of the year you can see this event.
This year’s event is coming to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, November 18. Survivor Series kicks off on PPV and on the WWE Network at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT, and while a Kickoff Show has not been announced yet, we’re speculating there will be a two-hour long preshow, much like the other “Big Four” WWE PPVs.
This is the 32nd annual Survivor Series from WWE, which dates back to 1987. Since the focus of the event are the Elimination Tag Matches, we’re taking a look through the history of WWE to look at every single traditional Survivor Series match in the history of WWE. On each slide, the winners are presented first for each match, unless noted otherwise. So check out every single Survivor Series Elimination Tag match from this iconic PPV.
Note: Neither 1998 or 2002 had a Survivor Series match, so they don’t appear on this list.
