Over the years, there have been great matches and emotional moments taking place at Survivor Series.
With exciting matches already set up for this year's event, we want to take a look back at the five most memorable moments in the 30-year history of the event.
#5 Undertaker defeats Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan faced the Undertaker at the 1991 Survivor Series event which took place at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. The "Hulkstar" was at the height of his popularity and was already a champion for 248 days. The Undertaker, on the other hand, was the young indestructible force who had an evil persona.
At the time, Undertaker was only 26 years old whereas Hogan was a megastar, headed to the legendary status. The match saw The Undertaker, with outside interference from Paul Bearer and Ric Flair, defeat Hogan by a tombstone on a steel chair. This would mark his first title reign, which made him the youngest wrestler to ever hold the WWE title at that time
