Perhaps a puzzling choice for this list, but statistics don't lie. Naomi scored 82 points over two appearances, the result of one elimination by the Team BAD member in 2013, and two eliminations in the 2014 match, the year in which she (along with Alicia Fox, Emma and Natalya) were the match's survivors.
The Survivor Series is WWE's second-oldest pay-per-view, with roots extending back to 1987. But it likely wouldn't have survived (pun intended) for so long without a certain staple match.
The "Traditional Survivor Series Match" - an elimination match featuring teams of four or five each, in most cases - shaped the event in its early years, with the entire card consisting of elimination matches between all-star teams of wrestlers.
And even though the "traditional" matches have scaled back considerably (some years without even one elimination match!), the fact remains that 304 wrestlers have participated in at least one between '87 and '14.
So how did we come up with the Top 50 Survivor Series Match Participants? By using simple math. We assigned the following scores for every single Survivor Series match competitor:
1 point for each Survivor Series match they participated in (note - these are ONLY for the elimination matches, not other matches on the PPV. Likewise, elimination matches on non-Survivor Series shows won't count)
10 points for each credited elimination
50 points for being the (or one of the) final survivors in a match
What you'll find is an extremely stats-driven and accurate reflection of who performed best in the Traditional Survivor Series match over the years. If you'd like to be a part of this conversation, Tweet us at @canadianbulldog using the hashtag #Top50, or leave a comment below.

Drew McIntyre also scored 82 points (there are quite a few "ties" on this list). Vince McMahon's "Chosen One" was a survivor at the 2009 Survivor Series (along with The Miz and Sheamus and eliminated two people). One year later, McIntrye scored one elimination before being pinned by The Big Show.
Earthquake (initially known as Canadian Earthquake) competed in four consecutive Survivor Series matches between 1989 and 1992 and has 84 points. Quake survived his first match (along with team captain Randy Savage and Dino Bravo) and eliminated one man -- which he also did in both 1991 and 1992.
