The WWE Survivor Series is an annual pay per view that pits teams together in an elimination battle to see which team prevails.
While the event is known as a team event, there are several superstars that have stood out in both singles matches and elimination matches.
During the 20 plus years of the Survivor Series, wrestlers like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena and Randy Orton have battled at the event multiple times, but only a select few have risen to represent the best that the WWE has to offer.
Before watching the Survivor Series pay per view, check out these top WWE Survivor Series wrestlers.
John Cena: Like his excellent record at most other events, John Cena has excelled at the Survivor Series with an impressive undefeated streak.
During his early years in the WWE, Cena still dominated and represented Team Smackdown well. He has had multiple championship matches at the event, including victories over Chris Jericho and both members of Degeneration-X in a handicap match.
Cena’s ability to survive at the Survivor Series goes with his “Never Give Up” attitude. Even when up against monsters like Big Show and Umaga, Cena has thrived and helped his teammates win.
Randy Orton: The Viper Orton is one of the best all-time Survivor Series wrestlers. He has two losses, but his 5 victories are the most impressive factor.
During Orton’s first three years at the event, he found himself the sole survivor and winner for his team each time. In fact, during his first Survivor Series, Randy Orton eliminated Shawn Michaels and forced “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to leave the WWE.
At the 20th Annual Survivor Series, Orton was the WWE champion and he defended his title against Shawn Michaels. Orton managed to come out with a victory in his only singles match the event.
As Orton continues to rise in the WWE, his success at the Survivor Series will only improve.
The Undertaker: The Undertaker made his debut at the 1990 Survivor Series, making his appearances there special every year.
He got counted out while chasing down Dusty Rhodes in his debut match, but just a year later he found him in a WWE title against Hulk Hogan. With a little help from Ric Flair, the Undertaker defeated Hogan to win his first WWE championship.
In the following years, The Undertaker would bring his casket to the event to bury both Kamala and Yokozuna.
More recently, the Undertaker defeated both the Big Show and Jericho in a triple threat match at the 2009 event. This was one year after putting the Big Show in a casket of his own during their short-lived feud in 2008.
The Ultimate Warrior: Even though the Ultimate Warrior did not have the longest career in the WWE, he was quickly pushed to the top and had huge success at the 1989 and 1990 Survivor Series events.
During the 1989 event, the Ultimate Warrior won by defeating WWE legends like Andre the Giant and Haku during the main event match.
In the 1990 event, he won his first match and become a part of the “Ultimate Survivor Team” that included himself, Hulk Hogan and Tito Santana.
The Warrior and Hogan defeated the “Million Dollar Team” to become the 1990 Ultimate Survivors. Even though his career should have longer and filled with more success, he will always be a part of Survivor Series history.
