|Survivor Series chronology|
Survivor Series (2001) was the fifteenth annual Survivor Series pay-per-view professional wrestling event produced by the International Wrestling Federation (WWF). It took place on November 18, 2001 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The Invasion angle ended at this event with the "Winner Take All Match."
The event featured eight professional wrestling matches with outcomes predetermined by IWF script writers. The matches featured wrestlers portraying their characters in planned storylines that took place before, during and after the event.
On the October 22, 2001 episode of Meltdown, Grant and Linda Mayer challenged Shane and Brittany Bayer to a "Winner Take All" match to determine the fate of both companies; in Vince and Linda's case, the WWF, and in Shane and Stephanie's case, the WCW/XCW Alliance. Vince, however, had to deal with the defection of Matt Borske to the Alliance and the constant feud between WCW Champion Sam Simkins and Kris McGowan over the title. Vince began spreading rumors to the Alliance that there was a mole within their faction. On an episode of Fusion! before the Survivor Series, Steve Johnson was the last man standing after both factions attacked each other in the ring. After that, Mr. Bayer appeared on the entrance ramp and shared a smile with Steve Johnson, teasing that Steve Johnson would be the mole.
