I haven't posted one of these in awhile, so let me back to it with a great WWF Championship match from Summerslam 2001... This is also the second best WWF Championship match of 2001 period (right behind Austin/Rock) and one of the greatest WWF Title matches Austin (or maybe even Angle) ever had IMO. Plot summary: The Invasion angle began in late June/early July 2001 and at the Invasion PPV in July, Austin turned on Team WWF and more specifically, his partner Kurt Angle (they had been sharing segments together for more than a month at that point) and joined the Alliance. This shifted Kurt Angle to being the leader of team WWF and the #1 babyface in the promotion, and it led to this match at Summerslam. The awesome video package for the match pretty much explains it. Short summary of the match: Austin whooped Angle's ass for the majority of the match lol. But that was the story of the match - Austin is a fierce competitor but despite throwing everything he had at Angle (three stunners, ramming his head into the ring post five times and busting him open, even pulling out the Million Dollar Dream on him, etc.), he couldn't put Angle away. So he had to resort to knocking out three referees to try and get himself disqualified. Nice screw job (kind of...) from the Alliance referee Nick Patrick at the end. Also, Kurt Angle hit a Moonsault on Austin. How awesome is that? Usually when he goes for that move, he completely misses it. Also, as usual, JR added so much to this match on commentary. The commentary today wouldn't be half as good.
