WWF No Mercy ‘01

1. Hardy Boyz vs. Lance Storm and Hurricane - 4
2. Kane vs. Test - 2
3. Torrie Wilson vs. Stacy Keibler - Lingerie Match - 2
4. Christian vs. Edge - Ladder Match - 7
5. Big Show and Tajiri vs. Dudley Boyz - 3
6. Booker T vs. The Undertaker - 7
7. The Rock vs. Chris Jericho - 8
8. Kurt Angle vs. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin vs. Rob Van Dam - 5

The Hardy Boyz were hotter than Godzilla’s atomic breath and spicy wings combined, where their opponents, Hurricane and Storm were as stale as Umaga’s asshole after a twelve-hour flight. Kane and Test was an abomination; Test was blatantly feeding himself to Kane, but still won, and Kane’s powerbomb on referee Nick Patrick afterwards was an eyesore. Wilson and Keibler looked superb, an as pointless as this was, Stacy’s my all-time favorite woman in wrestling, so I can’t totally shit on it, but I would like to take photos of her taking a shit. Christian and Edge brought the bumps in their ladder match, well, at least Christian did. The story was nonexistent, and nobody remembers this match, but it’s worth seeing for nothing else imagining how damn sore Jay Reso was the following morning. Show and Tajiri wasn’t a good idea for a team, and Bubba’s pratfall-like bumps are shitty. Booker and Undertaker was a lot of fun, just a good back-and-forth encounter between two veterans, and a solid match. Rock and Jericho was really good, too; the crowd was livid, and they both put a lot into this one. It’d have been nice to see a clean finish, but we definitely didn’t. The main event was disappointing, Austin being the biggest problem, as I never realized how poorly he was possible of working. He didn’t sell anything, and constantly grabbed guys and lead them around, regardless of what offense they were trying to do, and it sucked. Neither Angle nor RVD got a chance to shine, but Austin sure got plenty of time to brawl sloppily. This show was a mixed bag, half of it was rancid like Stephanie McMahon’s cooter, and the other wasn’t bad at all.
