Cyber Sunday is an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). In 2004 and 2005, the event was known as Taboo Tuesday and was exclusive to the Raw brand.
During the event's "Taboo Tuesday" years, it was the first pay-per-view held by the company on a Tuesday since 1991's This Tuesday in Texas. The inaugural event was held in October, and the 2005 event was pushed back to early November, likely to prevent competition from a Major League Baseball playoff game.By 2006 the show was moved to a more traditional Sunday night slot—alleviating problems with the taping schedule of SmackDown! (usually held on Tuesdays)—and renamed Cyber Sunday.
The most distinctive feature of Cyber Sunday is the ability for fans to vote on certain aspects of every match. The voting typically begins in the middle of an episode of Raw a few weeks beforehand and ends during the pay-per-view, often moments before the match is slated to begin. Because of this, Cyber Sunday is billed as an "interactive pay-per-view". For the first four events, voting was made online through WWE.com, with the official tag line for the PPV being "Log On. Take Over." In 2008 however, this was replaced by votes through text messaging but this is only available to United States mobile carriers. However, the match between The Undertaker and The Big Show was made universal, as fans are now allowed to vote for the match stipulation on WWE.com
