THE  BACKGROUND:  On  Thanksgiving  Day  1987,  the  then-World  Wrestling  Federation  unveiled  a  new  pay-per-view  to  battle  NWA  Starrcade.  The  new  pay-per-view  consisted  of  two  five-man  tag  teams  battling  it  out  to  see  if  one  member  of  the  team,  or   the  whole  team  would  emerge  as  the  survivors.  Hence  the  name,  The  Survivor  Series.  Throughout  the  years,  Survivor  Series  might  have  gotten  away  from  its  original  format,  but  it  gave  many  memories  (the  birth  of  the  Elimination  Chamber  at  WWE  Survivor  Series  2002,  the  Submission  Match  of   Bret  “The  Hitman”  Hart  vs.  Bob  Backlund  for  the  title  and  The  Casket  Match  of  The  Underaker  vs.  Yokozuna  at  WWF  Survivor  Series  1994),  historic  debuts  (The  Undertaker  at  Survivor  Series  1990,  Dwayne  “The  Rock”  Johnson  as  Rocky  Maivia  at  Survivor  Series  1996,  and  Kurt  Angle  at  Survivor  Series  1999),  historic  title  changes  (The  Undertaker  defeating  Hulk  Hogan  for  the  then-WWF  World  Heavyweight  Championship  at  Survivor  Series  1991,  The  Rock becoming  World  Heavyweight  Champion  at  Survivor  Series  1998,  The  Big  Show  defeating  Triple  H  for  the  title  at  Survivor  Series  1999),  along  with  the  most  controversial  moment  of  all:  The  Montreal  Screwjob  at  Survivor  Series  1997.

And  now,  my  picks:
