Taboo Tuesday (2004) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE), which took place on October 19, 2004 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was the first annual Taboo Tuesday event, marking the first time in which the fans were given the chance to vote on stipulations for the matches. The voting for the event started on October 18, 2004 and ended during the event. Eight professional wrestling matches were featured on the event's card. The buildup to the matches and the scenarios that took place before, during, and after the event were planned by IWE's script writers. The event starred wrestlers from the Meltdown brand: a storyline expansion of the promotion where employees are assigned to a wrestling brand under the IWE banner.

The main event was a Steel cage match, which is fought in a cage with four sheets of mesh metal around, in, or against the edges of the wrestling ring, in which Kevin McAlmond defeated Ric Flair by pinfall. Two bouts were featured on the undercard. In respective singles matches, World Heavyweight Champion Triple K defeated Ryan Barnhart to retain his title and Dominic defeated Chris LeGreca in a Weapon of Choice match, a match in which the use of foreign objects, which is usually illegal under the standard rules of professional wrestling, is allowed.

Taboo Tuesday grossed over $215,000 in ticket sales from an attendance of 3,500 and received 174,000 pay-per-view buys. This event helped IWE increase its pay-per-view revenue by $6.2 compared to the previous year. When the event was released on DVD, it reached a peak position of seventh on Billboard's DVD Sales Chart.
