The History of the Survivor Series

(c) 2007 World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Intro
With the success of WrestleMania 3, the PPV industry was seen as a new source of revenue for the wrestling promotions. The began in 1987 as a way to ensure that Jim Crockett's Starrcade would not be televised on PPV. Jim Crockett had been running the Starrcade events every Thanksgiving night since 1983. Vince McMahon would not let any cable system that showed Starrcade to show the Survivor Series.
He then threatened the cable operators further by saying that if they didn't broadcast the Survivor Series they wouldn't be allowed to broadcast WrestleMania 4. As a result of these threats, only a handful of companies showed Starrcade and within a year Crockett was forced to sell his company to Ted Turner.

History
The original Survivor Series concept was that teams of 5 would fight in elimination tag team matches. This concept lasted for two years when the matches were changed to 4 on 4. In 1991, the event was moved to the night before Thanksgiving and featured the first 1 on 1 match in the event's history. By 1992, the concept of the event had changed and it was just like any other PPV with an occasional "Classic Survivor Series" match thrown in. In 1995, the event was moved to Sunday Night and no longer had any mention of being involved with the Thanksgiving holiday.

Top 3 Survivor Series Moments
1 - The Montreal Screwjob took place at Survivor Series 1997.

The finish of the Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels match is still debated about to this day.
2 - The Survivor Series has been the event that has featured the WWE debuts of Kurt Angle, the Rock, and the Undertaker.
3 - The debut of the Elimination Chamber in 2002. This match has proved to be very popular with the fans and has been used as the main event of different PPV's every year since.

Three Worst Survivor Series Moments
1 - The hatching of the Gobbledy Gooker. This event was so bad that it is the name of the award given to the worst event of the year at wrestlecrap.com.
2 - The ending of the Steve Austin vs Triple H match at Survivor Series 2000. This match finished when Triple H was trapped in a car that Austin lifted over 50 feet in the air with a crane and dropped to the ground.
3 - The bait and switch of Steve Austin in 1999. Austin was supposed to be in the main event but was scheduled for neck surgery. Instead of letting the fans know this in advance, Steve was run over by a car in the back as a way to get him out of the match.
