Survivor Series (2004) was the eighteenth annual Survivor Series professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). It took place on November 14, 2004 at the Gund Arena in Cleveland, Ohio and starred talent from both the Raw and SmackDown! brands.

The main match on the Raw brand was a 4 on 4 Survivor Series match, a type of elimination match, between Team Orton (Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, and Maven) and Team Triple H (Triple H, Edge, Batista, and Snitsky), which Team Orton won after Orton last eliminated Triple H.

Several of the existing feuds carried on following the event. Triple H continued feuding with Randy Orton, and at New Year's Revolution in January, Triple H last eliminated Orton in an Elimination Chamber match to win the vacant World Heavyweight Championship.cite web|first=Nick|last=Tylwalk|url=http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/PPVReports/2005/01/10/901074.html|title=No Revolution: Triple H prevails|accessdate=2008-04-27|date=2005-01-10|publisher=Canadian Online Explorer|work=SLAM! Sports] John "Bradshaw" Layfield also continued his feud with Booker T, defeating him, Eddie Guerrero, and The Undertaker at Armageddon.cite web|url=http://www.wwe.com/shows/armageddon/history/2004/results/|title=Armageddon 2004 results|accessdate=2008-04-24|publisher=World Wrestling Entertainment] Following the event, Carlito sustained a legitimate injury and lost the WWE United States Championship to John Cena, with whom he was in a storyline.

Background

The main feud on the Raw brand was between Team Orton (Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho and Maven) and Team Triple H (Triple H, Edge, Batista and Snitsky). On the October 25, 2004 edition of "Raw", Evolution (Triple H, Ric Flair and Batista) were put in charge of "Raw", after General Manager Eric Bischoff took the night off. Triple H granted Flair the match of his choice; Flair wanted a rematch with Orton,cite web|url=http://www.pwwew.net/tv/raw/041025.htm|title=Dangerous Deal|accessdate=2008-04-04|date=2004-10-25|publisher=PWWEW.net] cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/raw/041025.html|title=RAW results - October 25, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-03|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] as he lost a Steel Cage match to Orton at Taboo Tuesday.cite web|url=http://www.pwwew.net/ppv/wwf/october/raw2004.htm|title=Taboo Tuesday 2004 Results|accessdate=2008-04-03|publisher=PWWEW.net] Orton accepted Flair's challenge, with a stipulation that if he defeated Flair he would get an opportunity to face Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series. Orton, however, lost the match after interference by Triple H, giving the win to Flair, so Orton did not receive an opportunity for the World Heavyweight title. On the November 1 edition of "Raw", General Manager Eric Bischoff scheduled a traditional 8-man elimination tag team match between Team Orton, Jericho, Maven and Benoit versus Team Triple H, Batista, Edge and Snistky at Survivor Series. The winning team at Survivor Series would be granted absolute control of running "Raw" for a month.cite web|url=http://www.pwwew.net/tv/raw/041101.htm|title=Strength in Numbers|accessdate=2008-04-08|date=2004-11-01|publisher=PWWEW.net] cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/raw/041101.html|title=RAW results - November 1, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-08|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] The following week, Bischoff concluded with adding that the winning members at Survivor Series would all get a week to be in charge of "Raw".cite web|url=http://www.pwwew.net/tv/raw/041108.htm|title=Friends or Foes?|accessdate=2008-04-08|date=2004-11-08|publisher=PWWEW.net] cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/raw/041108.html|title=RAW results - November 8, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-08|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] That same night, Edge and Chris Benoit were scheduled in a match, where Triple H, Batista, Orton, Jericho and Maven came out to ringside to watch the match. At ringside, a fight broke out between Triple H and Orton's team, which caused the match to end in a No Contest.

The predominant feud on the SmackDown! brand was between John "Bradshaw" Layfield (JBL) versus Booker T, with the two battling over JBL's WWE Championship. On the October 21, 2004 edition of "SmackDown!", SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long booked a six man tag team match involving Booker T, Rob Van Dam, and Rey Mysterio taking on JBL, Kenzo Suzuki, and René Duprée. At the time, Booker T was a heel and congratulated JBL's success with the company in a segment backstage.cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/smackdown/041021.html|title=SmackDown! results - October 21, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-09|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] cite web|first=J.D.|last=Dunn|url=http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/tv_reports/32292/The-Smackdown-Breakdown-10.21.04.htm|title=The Smackdown Breakdown 10.21.04|accessdate=2008-04-09|date=2004-10-21|publisher=411mania.com] The tag team match got underway, and JBL was led to believe that Booker T was going to betray Van Dam and Mysterio, as Booker T warned both Van Dam and Mysterio not to interfere with him during the match. The match concluded with Booker T pinning JBL after an axe kick, thus turning Booker face. The following week on "SmackDown!", Booker T defeated Orlando Jordan to earn the right to face JBL for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series. [cite web|first=J.D.|last=Dunn|url=http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/tv_reports/32295/The-Smackdown-Breakdown-10.28.04.htm|title=The Smackdown Breakdown 10.28.04|accessdate=2008-04-15|date=2004-10-28|publisher=411mania.com] On the November 4 edition of "SmackDown!", JBL interfered in a match between Booker T and Orlando Jordan, which ended in a disqualification, giving Booker T the win.cite web|first=J.D.|last=Dunn|url=http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/tv_reports/32303/The-Smackdown-Breakdown-11.04.04.htm|title=The Smackdown Breakdown 11.04.04|accessdate=2008-04-15|date=2004-11-04|publisher=411mania.com] cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/smackdown/041104.html|title=SmackDown! results - November 4, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-14|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] After the disqualification by JBL, Theodore Long scheduled a tag team match between Booker T and Josh Matthews versus JBL and Orlando Jordan. The tag team victory was given to Booker T and Matthews, as Booker pinned Jordan for the win.

One of the primary matches on the SmackDown! brand was between Team Guerrero (Eddie Guerrero, The Big Show, Rob Van Dam and John Cena) versus Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Carlito, Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak). On the October 28, 2004 edition of "SmackDown", Theodore Long booked a 4-on-4 Survivor Series elimination match between Team Guerrero, Big Show, Van Dam and Cena against Team Angle, Carlito, Reigns and Jindrak.cite web|url=http://www.pwwew.net/tv/smackdown/041028.htm|title=We have a Match|accessdate=2008-04-14|date=2004-10-28|publisher=PWWEW.net] cite web|url=http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/results/smackdown/041028.html|title=SmackDown! results - October 28, 2004|accessdate=2008-04-14|publisher=Online World of Wrestling] The following week, however, Mysterio was removed from the elimination match, as Long booked Mysterio in a Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Guerrero was given a week to choose a member for his team at Survivor Series.
