Survivor Series 2001
November 18, 2001 from Greensboro, NC
The Main Event of the show will feature a "Winner Take All" Match for the sole ownership of the WWF under traditional Survivor Series Elimination rules between Team WWF and Team Bischoff. If Team WWF wins, Vince McMahon will be the sole owner and if Team Bischoff wins, Eric Bischoff will be the sole owner of the WWF.
Team WWF consists of WWF Champion Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Triple H & Undertaker and Team Bischoff consists of WCW Champion Goldberg, Hollywood Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall & Sting.
The Invasion came about due to the purchase of World Championship Wrestling by Shane McMahon just prior to WrestleMania X-Seven. The next night on Raw is War, Shane McMahon's WCW began invading the WWF when then WCW Champion attacked then WWF Champion Steve Austin. On July 9th, Shane and Stephanie announced that the two had sold their shares in the WWF, Shane because of his purchase of WCW and Stephanie because her father sided with her husband, Triple H after the couple broke up and Vince told her that he wanted her out of his life after Stephanie pretended to be pregnant to “save” her marriage. They explained that the man, who bought their stock, was none other than the former President of WCW, Eric Bischoff. Bischoff told a surprised McMahon, that he was now the co-owner of the WWF and he and McMahon were now partners.
On the October 22, 2001 episode of Raw, Vince challenged Eric Bischoff to a "Winner Take All" match, with the winner becoming the sole owner of the WWF. Shane allowed Hogan and other WCW talent to participate on behalf of Team Bischoff and in return, Bischoff promised Shane to merge WWF with WCW and to run that company together. Vince McMahon had to deal with a lot of problems within his team, such as Goldberg, with the help of The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, crushing Triple H's ankle with a Steel Chair, as well as an increasingly heated feud between the two biggest WWF stars, The Rock and Steve Austin, over the WWF Championship. Vince began spreading rumours to Bischoff that there was a mole within his team, which he claimed to be Hollywood Hogan. Hogan denied being the mole and speculation within WCW began, who that mole was. Sting, still suspicious of Hogan, deliverd a Scorpion Deathdrop to Hogan on one episode of Smackdown. Goldberg and Nash, having sorted out their previous problems with each other, were back to being enemies on the last Raw prior to the PPV, after Goldberg accidentally speared Nash. Later in the show, Nash would return the favour and jacknife Goldberg. On the last episode of Smackdown before the Survivor Series, Hollywood Hogan was the last man standing after both teams attacked each other in the ring. After that, Vince appeared on the entrance ramp and shared a smile with Hogan, teasing that Hogan would indeed be the mole.
