The last big event of 2001! Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Chris Jericho, and Kurt Angle gather to battle, with the ultimate winner becoming the Undisputed Champion! With so much on the line, this is one of the most ... more »important matches of the year.« less
"A lot of people put this ppv down because of the unexpected ending but I thaught it was a very good show. Listed below are my reviews of the matches.Albert & Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Christian & Test(Not a classic but a very solid opener) Edge vs. William Regal(A decent match with a good ending)Jaqueline vs. Trish(A great effort by both divas)Dudley Boyz vs. Big Show & Kane(The worst match on the card. The Big Show & Kane have no chemistry at all)RVD vs. Undertaker(The best hardcore match I have ever seen!. Taker is as sadistic as ever and RVD is in fine form)Kurt Angle vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin(These two men have had many battles but this one stood out from the rest. A fantastic display by both competitors)Chris Jericho vs. The Rock(Another great match from the Jericho/Rock series. Shame about the ending though)Undisputed Title Match
Chris Jericho vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin(A superb main event with both men being pushed to their absolute limits. Booker T interfears at the end and helps Jericho get the win)Verdict - There is not many bad points to this ppv. The Undertaker/rvd match along with the Angle/Austin match are worth buying this dvd for alone!."

"Scotty 2 Hotty & Albert vs Test & Christian This match was alot boring. The referee allowed too much tag team interfearence. Otherwise, Albert picks up the victory for him and Scotty 2 Hotty with a powerbomb 2/5 Winner: Albert & Scotty 2 Hotty
Edge(Champion) vs William Regal for the Intercontinental Championship This match was better than I thought. In the beggining Regal hits Edge on the ring post. There is a lot of high risk manuvers in the match. In the middle of the match Edge speats the steel steps. Regal tries to hit Edge with the bronx knuckles but Edge hits the spear. 3/5 Winner and still Intercontinental Champion Edge
Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy Lita Special Guest Referee This was one of the best matches. Jeff Hardy does a lot of moves from the top rope. One time Matt Hardy catches him with a slam on the back. When Jeff Hardy goes to the top again and Matt Hardy tries to stop him but he gets slammed on his face and Jeff Hardy hits the Swantoon. Matt Hardy gets his foot on the bottom rope but Lita was only looking at the shoulders of Matt Hardy Winner: Jeff Hardy
Dudely Boyz w/ Stacy Keibler(Champions) vs Big Show & Kane This was an awsome match. There were alot of near falls. Kane jumps from the top rope to the outside and Big Show strips her to her pannies. Then he spanks her. The Dudleys catch Big Show off guard and hit him with a catapult onto the exposed turnbuckle 3/5 Winner and still tag team champions The Dudley Boyz
Rob Van Dam(Champion) vs Undertaker for the Hardcore Championship This match starts off in the crowd. Undertaker pushes the rail on the face of Rob Van Bam to start choking him. Rob Van Dam shoots some os the fluid of the fire extinguisher on Undertaker then he hits him with a trash can. Next Rob Van Dam jumbs from the seats above the exit sign and hits a croosbody. Undertaker hits Rob Van Dam's head on the screen on the entrance stage and tries for the lastride. Rob Van Dam reveres it and Undertaker gets hit with rolling thunder. Then gets hit with the Vandaminator. Then the Undertaker chokeslams Rob Van Da through the stage. 4/5 Winner and new Hardcore Champion Undertaker
Trish Stratus(Championship) vs Jacqueline for the Womens Championship Trish Stratus keeps on getting kicked and backbody dropped. Then she gets the chick kick reversed. Next she gets slammed on her face. Trish Stratus hits a back slide and wins the match 2/5 Winner and still the Womens Champion Trish Stratus
Kurt Angle vs Steve Austin(champion) for the WWF Championship There are a lot of suplexes in this match. Austin gets hit with a low blow and Angle hits the Angle Slam. Then he tries to hit the Stone Cold Stunner but instead Austin hits it. 4/5 Winner and still WWF Champion Steve Austin
The Rock vs Y2J This was a good match. The Rock hits a DDT through a table and Vince tries to make The Rock loss after he goes for the People 's Elbow. Y2J gets a low blow and hits the Rock Bottom 5/5 Winner and new World Champion Y2J
Steve Austin vs Y2J This match starts off with a Rock Bottom to Y2J and a chair shot to Austin. There is a lot of ring post shots and there is suplexes on the concreate floor. At the end Steve Austin hits Vince and gives Y2J The Walls of Jericho. Whilw Jericho is taping Booker T hits Austin with the title belt and Y2J wins 5/5 Winner and new Undisputed Champion Y2J"

"This was actually a pretty decent PPV. It is an overall underrated PPV, which is surprising considering the first ever undisputed title is handed out in this match.
1. Scotty 2 Hotty & Albert vs. Test & Christian These were the early days of Test and Christian teaming together. Nothing to exciting here. Why is Albert still employed, and Scotty for that matter. (7/10)
2. Edge vs. William Regal (Intercontinental Title) This was the beginning of these two competitors fued. Unfortunately, the fued did not live up to the hype and really dragged on. Okay match. (7/10)
3. Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy This fued did not last long and good thing it didn't. I was really looking forward to this match. It was a complete dud. (4/10)
4. Dudley Boys vs. Big Show & Kane (WWF Tag Titles) Nothing too much went on in this match. It was more funny than anything. (6/10)
5. Rob Van Dam vs. Undertaker (Hardcore Title) One of the better matches of the night. These two actually mixed well together in this match and put on quite a performance. (8.5/10)
6. Trish Stratus vs. Jacqueline (WWF Women's Title) Who cares? (3/10)
7. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle (Winner Gets A Shot At Undisputed Title Later In The Night) Very entertaining match. Probably the best match of the night. These two mix very well together. Although Angle can hang with anybody and make everyone look good. (9/10)
8. The Rock vs. Chris Jericho (Winner Gets A Shot At Undisputed Title Later In The Night) Decent match. It is not as good as their No Mercy 2001 and Royal Rumble 2002 title matches, but is good nonetheless. These two mesh well together as well. (8.5/10)
9. Austin/Angle winner vs. Rock/Jericho winner (To Become The First Ever Undisputed Champion) I don't want to give away the semi-final winners just in case you have not seen the PPV. Pretty good final match. Booker T makes an appearance. Surprise ending. (9/10)
The main event matches on this PPV were good, but the undercard was horrible. The only real need to buy this DVD is for historical purposes. The matches were decent, but can be seen elsewhere on other PPV's.
Overall Rating: 7/10"

"I did not see this event when it originally aired so this review is not impacted by whether it did or did not live up to the hype. I purchased it as a huge fan of Jericho who wanted a copy of the show that cemented his place in the industry and was not dissapointed :DScotty 2 Hotty & Albert vs. Christian & Test:
Decent opener, I'm glad Albert no longer dances. 6.5/10
Edge vs William Regal-Intercontinental title
Regal and Edge never really clicked in the ring like I had hoped but again a decent match. 7/10
Jackie vs. Trish-Women's title
This may have been Jacqueline's best match ever. But its still not up to the level of the better women's matches today. Trish was not quite at the level she is now either. 6/10
Dudleys vs Kane/Big Show- Tag Team titles
Everyone seemed confused for half the match and it didn't seem like anyone cared about the tension between Kane and Show. Decent finish saved it from being a total dud. Sorta. 4/10
Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy-special ref Lita
A solid technical match but since the crowd wanted more "team extreme" style offence they were totally dead. Lita is not a good actress and it showed during the segment before the match. In retrospect the wrong guy won but still good fun. 7/10
Undertaker vs RVD- Hardcore Championship
Once more time the Undertaker proves he has not only the physical skills but is an expert in pacing a match. And RVD proved he still has that hardcore streak in him and lives up to PPV Harcore match standards with a spectacular finishing sequence and final bump. 8/10
Stone Cold vs Kurt Angle
These guys have simply great chemistry in the ring. It wasn't quite to the level of the SummerSlam match from that year but they couldn't go with as long a match given how the night was designed. The finish seemed a little bit abrupt but again that was more because they had raised the bar so high. On its own this match is still a good 8/10
Chris Jericho vs The Rock
The moment of the night came in the next match but this was the best of the 3 main event mathces. Even though the face won the first match it was still highly probable that we would see Rock vs Austin so tension was still very high. These guys tore the proverbial house down and to finally have a heel actually end a match the the other guy's finisher had me cheering in my room even though I knew who was going to win. 9.5/10
Chris Jericho vs. Stone Cold- WWE Undisputed Title match
Jericho held up really well after getting NO rest. There should have been a match between the semi finals and the finals. However, they still had a match with a good story despite the less than ideal length. The entire finishing sequence was so well done and the stunned silence of most of the crowd at the end proved everyone had done their job well. 8.5/10Overall the show had a dissapointing undercard compared to some of the shows from that year but the better matches more than made up for it. Even if I was not such a huge Jericho fan I think I would have enjoyed this disc quite a bit."

"WWE Vengeance was a great DVD. It was filled was great action. All, yes I mean all the matches were heart pounding. You could never guess what would happen next. The main events were great. There were 4 superstars, 3 main events, 2 titles on the line, and for the first time ever ONE Undisputed Champion. This movie is worth owning. Trust me because I've already seen this movie 5 times and I was there (in person)to see WWE Vengeance."
