Raven VS Saturn: An excellent match between two very underrated wrestlers. I dont care if people hated this match, I thought it was very good. Saturn's gimmick at this time was really stupid and Terri was friggin smoking hot.
Christian VS Edge: A good match between the former tag team partners. The ending was awesome as Christian wins the intercontinental belt.
Kronik VS Undertaker and Kane: In there only WWE match Kronik faces The Brothers of Destruction. Kronik had a succesful tag team run during the dying days of WCW and won a few tag titles along the way. Apparently they got fired because of this match. It's not really bad but it's far too long and could have been cut down.
RVD VS Chris Jericho: Alot of people enjoyed this match and it was good but it wasn't an all time classic. Stephaine McMahon interferes and helps RVD retain the hardcore title.
Booker T and Shane O' Mac VS The Rock: A very entertaining match but it did feel like alot of Rock's matches that i've seen before. The ending was chaotic, fast paced, and very well done.
Rhino VS Tajiri: A good, short match with Rhino winning in the end via gore and wins the US title.
Kurt Angle VS Steve Austin: This was in Angle's hometown, which in wrestling terms means 9 times out of 10 that the hometown hero will win in the end. A nice video package airs before the match and Angle's family was interviewed earlier in the night. While it's not Austin or Angle's greatest match, they still put on a very good show and the ending was vintage Angle.
Overall, this was a must own/watch PPV. I miss the Invasion angle even though it was poorly handled by the WWE. There wasn't a bad match on this entire card.
1) Elimination Match - WWF Tag Team Championships
The Hardy Boyz v. The Hurricane (WWF European champion) & Lance Storm
v. Big Show & Spike Dudley v. The Dudley Boyz (WWF Tag Team champions)
---This was an exciting Elimination contest with neat spots, good wrestling, and a wild Pennsylvania crowd. The Dudleyz and The Hardyz always put on good matches, and the other two teams were in fine form. A perfect example of how the "Invasion" angle brought new talent and energy to the WWF.
"8.0 / 10"
2) Raven v. Perry Saturn
---The only non-title match on the card featured Saturn looking for "Moppy", with Raven as the culprit. Confused? Don't worry, you'll understand from the PPV. The crowd hated this match, but I think Saturn and Raven worked really hard considering this storyline had no respect from anybody (I thought it was pretty funny). Much better than the trainwreck everyone makes it out to be.
"5.0 / 10"
3) WWF Intercontinental Championship
Christian v. Edge (champion)
---In their first-ever one-on-one bout (to my knowledge), both men were still WWF wrestlers at the time, which was unusual for the "Invasion" PPVs. This was yet another solid contest with plenty of near-falls and unique exchanges. Also noteworthy is that both Christian and Edge were as good in singles competition as they were tag team wrestlers. One of the few tag team breakups that helped both superstars. The Ladder Match that took place a month later is the one everybody remembers (rightfully so), but this is an incredible match worth checking out.
"8.0 / 10"
4) WCW Tag Team Championships
Kronik v. The Undertaker & Kane (champions)
---Now for the real stinker: Bryan Adams and Bryan Clark made their first and last WWF match together as they challenged the WCW Tag Team champs (who were actually WWF talent). Taker and Kane worked so hard to make Adams and Clark look good, but Kronik no-sold just about everything thrown at them. The match was kept to a nice pace, but this match was so badly performed that you'll just stare in disbelief. I still recommend the match because it's so unbelievably terrible that it's good for a laugh.
"2.0 / 10" (but still worth seeing for some gut-busting laughs!)
5) WWF Hardcore Championship
Chris Jericho v. Rob Van Dam (champion)
---Now for some genuinely good news: this is my personal favorite Match from 2001! What a fantastic match! Mat wrestling skirmishes, ladders, chairs, and plenty of high-spots. One of the best matches that Y2J and RVD have put on in their careers! If you've seen RVD's ONE OF A KIND 2-disc set, than you've witnessed three incredible WWE matches. Well guess what? I still think this one is better than all of them. I can't wait to pop in my DVD again, just to see this!
"9.5 / 10"
6) 2-on-1 Handicap Match - WCW Championship
Shane McMahon (WCW Owner) & Booker T v. The Rock (champion)
---I didn't expect much out of this one, but it was a much better Handicap Match than I expected. What happened in this match was fairly 'believeable' - Shane and Booker kept an advantage, but The Rock kept the fight going. Plus, there was a nice tease with Shane possibly walking out with the belt instead of the crazed Booker T. With some Alliance and WWF interference thrown in, this was a pleasant surprise. It still holds up after a couple viewings. If you liked the SUMMERSLAM main event between Booker & Rock, then I think you'll enjoy this just as much.
"7.0 / 10"
7) WCW United States Championship
Rhyno v. Tajiri (champion)
---Why do so many WWF superstars have WCW belts, and vice versa? Never mind. This match was very good, but way too short. I don't remember how this one got booked, and the PPV doesn't do a good job of reminding me. If given even as much as 5 more minutes, this random contest would've become even better.
"6.0 / 10"
8) WWF Championship
Kurt Angle v. 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin (champion)
---In the main event, hometown hero Kurt Angle got another crack at Austin's WWF Championship, since Angle got screwed out of the title at SUMMERSLAM 2001. Once again, they both put on a solid match. Good psychology, plus a nice touch to have Angle's family at ringside (though they should never do interviews again). In my opinion, the other Angle-Austin encounters from 2001 were much better than this one. Angle's never-say-due performance from SUMMERSLAM was breathtaking, but this time, it felt more obligatory. But I'm nitpicking -- Angle and Austin didn't disappoint me. Whether you love it or just like it, this main event will be worth your time and money.
"7.0 / 10"
There are no extras on this DVD, which is very unfortunate because this was my favorite PPV of 2001. But the card on UNFORGIVEN 2001 is more than worth the purchase! Considering most sellers are only asking about 10 bucks for this DVD, I definitely recommend it to even the most casual wrestling fan - there's something for everybody!
