"Judgment Day certainly was the most aggressive ppv thus far for 2001. With the less than impressive Backlash getting stinker ratings, the WWF obviously tried to pick up the pace with Judgment Day, and they succeeded admirably. This was nothing short of an amazing ppv. The chain match, no holds barred match, tag team turmoil, hardcore match, and even the women's title match was a little impressive (if you pause it just right, you'll see a clear blooper on Chyna's outfit). All in all, excellent, solid, and entertaining. Here are the matches:1. William Regal vs. Rikishi - great opener, Regal gets a stink face.2. 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS (PINFALL, SUBMISSION, AND LADDER) Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit - another classic and runner up for best match of 20013. HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP Test vs. Big Show vs. Rhyno - solid and very hardcore, with an impressive gore from Rhyno.4. WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP Chyna vs. Lita - good match, not as disappointing as Chyna's WrestleMania and Royal Rumble matches.5. INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP CHAIN MATCH Kane vs. Triple H - very brutal, a classic with a good ending. This is another runner up for match of 2001.6. TAG TEAM TURMOIL NO. 1 CONTENDER'S MATCH Acolytes vs. Radicalz vs. Dudley Boyz vs. X-Factor vs. Hardy Boyz vs. Chris Jericho & Chris Benoit vs. Edge & Christian - good match between seven great teams.7. WWF CHAMPIONSHIP Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Undertaker - great main event, extremely brutal and entertaining No Holds Barred match. Get this tape as soon as its availible. Well worth the money. Hopefully, WWF will continue with more ppvs like these."
Undertaker is Back!!

"Rikishi v. William Regal
Boriiiing. Once again Regal shows that he can't win without brass knucks.*1/4
Chris Benoit v. Kurt Angle 2 out of 3 Falls
Benoit wins the pin fall only. Angle wins the submission only. Angle wins the ladder match. This was one of the best 2 out of 3 falls ever. Both men got cut open.****
Rhyno v. Big Show v. Test Hardcore Title
Very underrated match. You should really want to watch this match. Great Triple Threat match. Rhyno wins with an awesome Gore on Big Show.***1/4
Chyna v. Lita Women's Title
It was a very good match. Chyna & Lita are the 2 best women wrestlers in the business. Chyna wins in a decent match.**
Triple H v. Kane IC Title Chain Match
Another great match. Triple H actually loses to Kane. You should really enjoy this match because it is brutal and there is so much hatrid for each other.***3/4
A.P.A. v. The Radicalz v. Dudley Boyz v. X-Factor v. Hardy Boyz v. Edge & Christian v. Chris Benoit & Chris Jericho # 1 contender for World Tag Titles
This was one of the best tag matches ever. Scary thing was that this wasn't even for Tag Title gold. It was to see who the # 1 contender is. Benoit & Jericho win. When Benoit makes Bradshaw tap to the Crossface.****1/2
Stone Cold Steve Austin v. Undertaker World Title
The Main event tops off a great PPV. Austin and Taker have an completly awesome match. I loved the way they kept having stare downs. I wish they could have kept this match go longer it was awesome. Austin wins with a Stunner.*****
Strongest pay per view since Wrestlemania.

"Judgment Day broke out in May of 2001. It was a great pay per view with few flaws. The first match unfortunatly is one of them. William Regal vs. Rikishi, its an ok match but you really feel like your wasting your time. The 2nd match should have been one of the main events. Its a 2 out of 3 falls match featuring Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit for Angle's gold medals. The stipulation were that the first match would be a first fall match. The 2nd would be a submission match, & if it came to a 3rd, a ladder match. Well ofcourse it goes to a third, and the two put on a awesome match. Kurt Angle does a spectaculor job in his first ever ladder match.A Triple Threat Hardcore Championship match is next pitting champion Rhyno against, Test & Big Show. Good hardcore match, featuring the men going backstage & all the usual hardcore weapons. Rhyno gives a great gore to Big Show through a trash can. The Women's Championship match is next. Champion Chyna, & Lita put on the best Women's Championship match in a long time. Lita is the only female to give it to Chyna & the results are pretty good.The Intercontinental Championship match is next. It features champ Triple H against Kane. These men put on a great chain match. It gets bloody, & violent, & the ending is good.The Tag Team Turmoil match for the #1 Contedership for the Tag Team Championship is next. Doesn't get really fired up until the Hardy Boyz enter.The main event for the WWF Championship was very good. Undertaker made sure that it would be a no holds barred match so it gets pretty violent. Stone Cold shows why he is a great heel in this match, flicking off the crowd a number of times.The bottom line for Judgment Day 2001 is that Kane, Triple H, Undertaker, & Stone Cold make up for there dud match at Backlash.
Strongly reccomend this one."
