WWE SURVIVOUR SERIES:
The original concept for the Survivor Series was to have an annual pay-per-view event that focused on tag team wrestling. Another contributing factor to the birth of the Survivor Series was to capitalize on the big time feud between Hulk Hogan and André the Giant, who wrestled each other at WrestleMania III. Additionally, the WWF had several "elimination" tag-team matches earlier in 1987, albeit with three-man teams and the feuds loosely related.

The Survivor Series was originally created to be a "Thanksgiving tradition" as the first four Survivor Series events took place on Thanksgiving Day in November. After four years of taking place on Thanksgiving Eve following that, Survivor Series moved to a more-traditional Sunday PPV date.
[edit] Survivor Series matches

The event is usually characterized by having five on five (or sometimes four on four or six man) tag-team elimination matches. These matches are generally referred to simply as "Survivor Series matches". The 1987-1991 and 1993-1997 Survivor Series events featured multiple Survivor Series style matches. The 1992 event had only one 4 on 4 tag team elimination match, but featured the first WWF Casket match, referred to at that time as a Coffin match, with slightly different rules from what is now employed, as a wrestler had to first pin their opponent and then place them inside a coffin and nail it shut in order to win. The Casket Match, by that point under the Casket match name, would return to the Survivor Series in its now standard format in 1994, intended as a means of bringing an end to a long-standing feud between Yokozuna and The Undertaker that had begun the previous year at the self-same event. The 1998 edition featured an elimination tournament for the WWF Championship, not seen since WrestleMania IV. The 2002 Survivor Series featured the debut of the Elimination Chamber match. The 2007 Survivor Series featured a Hell in a Cell match for the first time in the history of the event.
