The Survivor Series is an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view event held in November by WWE. It is one of the “Big Four” events, along with WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble, and SummerSlam, as it is one of the original four pay-per-views produced by WWE.
Survivor Series is the second longest running pay-per-view event in WWE history, behind WrestleMania. The first Survivor Series, held in 1987, came on the heels of the success of WrestleMania III, as the then-WWF began to see the lucrative potential of the pay-per-view market. On February 11, 2010, WWE announced that it would drop the Survivor Series name and rebrand the event. However, in June 2010, the event was added back onto WWE’s pay-per-view schedule.
