Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle from WWF 2001

Recap from TJ Hawke:

This was for Angle’s WWF Championship.

Debra came to the ringside area to support her husband. Did Austin abuse her in 2002 or 2003? I can never remember. William Regal came out and sent Debra to the back.

Angle and Austin were brawling back and forth from the start. Austin eventually got control by going after Angle’s left leg. Angle tried to come back with a sleeper, but Austin escaped and then applied a sleeper of his own. Angle escaped and then made a comeback. Austin cut him off again and tried to get a chair. Regal prevented that from happening. Austin maintained controlled anyway until Angle avoided the Kitchen Sink. Angle made his proper comeback. Austin needed to use a low blow. Ref bump. Regal tried to stop Austin from using the belt as a weapon. Regal SWERVED everyone and hit Angle with the belt. Well, that’s just a stupid fucking swerve. Austin made the cover: 1…2…NO! Austin then finished Angle with a stunner to win the title.

I enjoy watching these two doing an Austin brawl, but this was clearly one of their lesser battles. The Regal swerve being very dumb was also annoying.

Match Rating: **1/2
