WWF: Unforgiven 2001


Now I know that a lot of fans did not really enjoy the Alliance angle but I have to admit right now I loved it. Now of course it could have been SO much better but looking back the in ring product was great. I can say that because going back to that year the matches were excellent and there were some great moments.

1.[TAG TITLE 4 WAY MATCH]THE HARDY BOYZ VS LANCE STORM 7 THE HURRICANE VS THE BIG SHOW & SPIKE DUDLEY VS THE DUDLEY BOYZ-excellent opening match and it just makes miss these days when tag matches meant something. There is all kinds of action before the first team is even eliminated, that of course being Lance Storm and Hurricane. It was not to long after when Show and Spike had to go, that left rivals Dudley's and Hardy's. These two teams go at it like all know they are able to putting on a great show. In the end though The Dudley's keep the belts even after Jeff breaks up a close two count, that is one for the Alliance.

2.RAVEN VS PERRY SATURN-the second match of the evening was the only non title match on the card. This one came about because Raven killed off moppy, Saturn's mop, yes you read that write. Any way this may not be the best match on the card but it is not horrible. Still given the history of the two I can tell you now they have had better matches against each other. In the end Perry gets that revenge in a decent match. WWF gets that win back.

3.[I-C TITLE]EDGE VS CHRISTIAN-one of my favorite feuds from this time period with a great storyline in my opinion. These two were one of the greatest tag teams of all time only to be broken up by Christian's jealousy. He was jealous of Edge winning the King of the Ring that year and also winning the I-C title. So this match was a WWF vs. WWF match with the former brothers going at it. This is a great match and showed that both of these guys were great even as singles competitors. Several near falls occur in this match with both controlling at one point. But a low blow seals Edge's fate and Christian gets the win and the I-C championship.

4.[WCW TAG TITLE]UNDERTAKER & KANE VS KRONIK-I was always a fan of Kronik in their WCW days so when they debuted in the WWF I was all kinds of excited. Of course their run did not last long and their matches here were not as great but still. Any way they came into the WWF as Alliance members and cost Taker and Kane the WWF titles against The Dudley Boyz. So the match was set here as they went after the WCW tag titles. Now this was not the match that it could have been, if only they would have preformed like they did in WCW. Still for a big man match it was good with all four guys hitting power moves. Taker and Kane keep the belts in a decent match. This was also the last match Kronik had in the WWF, too bad because I wanted a Kronik vs. APA feud. Mainly because APA worked for hire as did Kronik in WCW, "breaking necks and cashing checks". Of course I would have seen APA coming out on top in that one. This puts the WWF up by one.

5.[HARDCORE TITLE]RVD VS CHRIS JERICHO-one of the best matches of the night and very possibly the best on the card. Two of the all time greats in my opinion showed why they were and will always be main event level athletes. The match starts off with guys trying to outdo each other hold for hold and move for move. Eventually they hit spot after spot and the hardcore element comes into play with various weapons. After a great match The Billion Dollar Princess makes her way down to the ring costing Y2J the match. RVD ties it up for the Alliance.

6.[WCW TITLE]THE ROCK VS BOOKER T & SHANE MCMAHON-this match came about because Booker had lost to Rock at Summerslam. So Shane-O-Mac came up with this handicap match thinking for sure the WCW title would "come home". I have to say that this was such an entertaining match from start to finish. Rock and Booker put in a great match and Shane of course was his usual high flying entertaining self I really loved the ref's going at it as did the fans. The Rock kept the title after delivering a really fun match. WWF takes the lead once more.

7.[WCW U.S. TITLE]RHYNO VS TAJIRI-two guys I have always enjoyed watching would be going at it right here. Rhyno controls most of the match unleashing his power against the smaller Tajiri. Things turn around for a moment only when Tajiri lands his kick stopping a gore from being delivered onto Torri. Still Rhyno comes out on top and takes the U.S. title and ties it up for the night.

8.[WWF TITLE]STEVE AUSTIN VS KURT ANGLE-after Austin found a way out in their match at Summerslam this one had to happen. The bridge incident and milk truck scene are still classic. Both lead to Austin and Angle doing it one more time here at Angle's hometown. Like before they both put on a great match with both getting near falls. The crowd was so into this one of course and it added to the atmosphere and feel of the match. Angle is intense in this match not wanting to lose in front of his home crowd and Austin is as desperate as ever. They tell the story wonderfully with both characters playing their roles to a T. the match is great with Angle of course coming out on top with the title.

This was a fun PPV but not the best from that year, but still it was a good one. I really wish there would have been some special features here. I would have loved moments from the next night on Raw or something. Still it was good night of wrestling and put over some storylines from that time.
