Elimination Matches[edit | edit source]
Elimination Tag Team Matches are the same as a normal tag team match except that a wrestler who suffers a loss is eliminated from participation. The match continues until all members of one team are eliminated.
- International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE) uses the term Survivor Series match to denote an eight or ten person match held during their yearly Survivor Series pay-per-view.
- Lucha Libre companies uses the term Tomeo Cibernetico (cybernetic tournament) for multi-man elimination matches. Sometimes in these matches, there can be only one winner, so after the other team has been eliminated former teammates face each other in an elimination match.
A further variation is where teams of four or more are composed of tag teams, and once a member of a team is eliminated their partner is also eliminated.
