Good evening to all you wrestling fans of the internet, the dust has settled from Fastlane, some of you are happy and others are less than happy. Wrestling is subjective and everyone is allowed to have an opinion so let’s hope WWE meets our expectations and does not piss everyone off at Wrestlemania. Where was I? Ah yes, it’s time for the final pay per view of 2002, WWE’s Armageddon. 2002 was a weird time for the company, Hogan had returned and left, Rock and Austin were phased out and we had a new star in Brock Lesnar that gave Vince wet dreams on night. Everyone was gushing about Smackdown while people were turning their noses at Triple H’s domination of Raw. Nonetheless, this is Armageddon and the question is: Will WWE end the year with a bang or go out on a whimper? Let’s find out!
It’s Armageddon so cue the The Doors and Freddie Blassie, footage of bombs and explosions, the end is here. Classic WWE stuff here, I do not know in all my years at looking at their promo packages I have ever seen a bad one. They always nail it and it is fantastic, I love the stage design for Armageddon. It is simple but it works so well. Plus, Armageddon will always be a great pay per view name when compared to Bragging Rights, Over The Limit & Fastlane.
(WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match) The Dudley Boyz vs Booker T & Goldust vs Chris Jericho & Christian © vs Lance Storm & William Regal (Fatal Four Way Elimination Match)
The Dudley Boyz reunited at Survivor Series which was for the best as Bubba’s push fizzled out after a match with Triple H (Yeah, I know what you are thinking). Storm and Regal have united since being left in limbo when Christian and Jericho became teammates and The Un-Americans fell apart. Booker T & Goldust have been so entertaining and it was a shame the titles were not already around their waist while Jericho and Christian have been annoying dickhead champions.

The match breaks down and D-Von remains in the ring with Christian, Christian walks into a 3D but Regal is the legal man after blind tagging Christian. Storm drops a leg drop on Bubba and Regal sneaks in for the pin and the elimination. It must be said that Regal fucks up this pin royally by pulling Bubba so far that he rolls onto him and Regal has to roll him off and pin him again, the referee is confused and JR is too. However, seconds later Goldust eliminates Regal with a powerslam.
The Dudley Boyz have been eliminated by worst roll-up in history!

Great opening match, little miffed about the back to back eliminations. I mean why include the other two trams if they would be gone one after the other immediately? Anyways, after the other two teams are eliminated, this match kicks into gear. The story is that Goldust is the weak link of the two, Goldust takes a whooping, good babyface in peril segment with the crowd wanting to see the tag to Booker. Good tease of the hot-tag too with Christian taking out Booker before the crucial moment, the slaps fire up Goldust and the tag is made. Booker is on fire with a few really nice false-finishes like the missile dropkick and the Lionsault after the belt shot. Finally, Booker nails The Book-End and we have got the moment we wanted to see for months. Loved this match.
Winners: Booker T & Goldust over Chris Jericho & Christian via Book-End!
Josh Matthews Promo
Lesnar promises to make an impact tonight. Cole and Tazz wonder what kind of impact Lesnar plans to make in tonight’s WWE Championship Match.
A-Train vs Edge
Albert had transformed into A-Train which was a great change for Albert as A-Train took out Mysterio and almost injuring Edge in the process. A-Train would not be able to fully capitalize on his new gimmick in WWE but it would lead a good run in Japan as Giant Bernard in New Japan. Edge is out for revenge tonight. A-Train is in control with Edge being overpowered, Edge dodges a corner clothesline and nails a dropkick to A-Train’s back. Edge tries to pull A-Train groin first into the ringpost but A-Train shoves off Edge. A-Train tries a clothesline against the ringpost, Edge dodges and pulls A-Train shoulder first into the ringpost. Chop block and low dropkick to the left knee of A-Train, leg drop across the neck by Edge.

Baldo Bomb by A-Train for two, A-Train has the chair. Edge Spears A-Train after A-Train wrestles with the referee for the chair. A-Train grabs the chair and nails Edge with the chair anyways for the DQ. Edge dropkicks the chair into A-Train’s face and gets revenge for himself and his partner Rey Mysterio.
Average match, Edge’s leg is messed up in storyline yet A-Train never works the leg at any point in the match so that’s a disappointment. It seems Edge and A-Train are meant to be protected by the finish but I do not think either come off looking better at the end of the match. Edge would shoot up from the big bicycle kick which I thought was a cool big spot, A-Train survives The Spear. However, the finish was flat and there was little heat for the match. Either have Edge avenge his tag team partner or build more heat on A-Train by taking out two big stars on Smackdown, this finish is in the middle and that’s why I do not rate the match that highly.
Winner: Edge over A-Train via DQ!
Big Show/Heyman Backstage
Show is not a happy man as Brock Lesnar is in town and Lesnar plans to make an impact. Show wants Stephanie to ban Lesnar, Heyman is not happy with Show’s plan so Heyman tells Show to go back to the locker room while Heyman goes to handle Stephanie.

Benoit was put over big time in this match, preparing Benoit for his match with Angle at the next pay per view. But yes, a great contest between two of the very best, they are so good at 50%, that it outshines 90% of the roster.
Winner: Chris Benoit over Eddie Guerrero via Crippler Crossface!
Heyman tries to smooth talk Stephanie, it fails epically as Heyman goes back to The Big Show empty handed.
Dawn Marie/Al Wilson/ Torrie Wilson
Dawn Marie continues to mess with the head of Torrie Wilson, Dawn is engaged to Al Wilson so Dawn Marie is now Torrie’s step-mother. Dawn blackmailed Torrie by asking her to come to her hotel room so that Dawn will not marry Al. Dawn takes advantage Torrie by asking her to strip and kissing her, it was every little boy’s fantasy and I am sure every boy enjoyed that moment. We see the footage of Dawn stripping Torrie and the two locking lips, Al is not happy about the footage (understandably). It is hilarious as Dawn, the evil manipulative bitch is the mega babyface to the fans while Al is a boring man who is ruining everyone’s fun. Al’s acting is laughable but this feud did get a lot of time and I do remember clearly.

Bare basic match, not a good botch for Batista but an ok showing. Flair was the best part if I am being totally honest, it was there and nothing special.
Winner: Batista over Kane via Batista Bomb!
John Cena and B Squared make fun of the audience, it’s a good rap. Do not know why it was needed but it was here. Yay?

That was a million miles a second, they had so little time and they had to try and pack in so much into it, it was sloppy in parts. Particularly, Trish’s Chick Kick as Victoria was way out of position as well as the finish was pretty weak. Trish was going to beat Jacqueline with a clothesline? That’s not good enough!
Winner: Victoria over Trish & Jacqueline via Shenanigans!

Not a great match, Angle does everything he can to make this a watchable affair but it just does not come off on this night. Everything at the end was fun with Lesnar screwing Show but even that could not save this match, I have seen many years of Show wrestling at this point and that great match is still yet to come.
Winner: Kurt Angle over Big Show via F-5!
(WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match) Shawn Michaels © vs Triple H W/ Ric Flair (Three Stages of Hell)
It was a great story of two former friends turned rivals due to one being jealous of the other’s success. Triple H wiped out Shawn Michaels at Summerslam even though Shawn Michaels won the match, Michaels made a dramatic return before Survivor Series and would win the championship at Survivor Series in one of the best feel good moments in WWE history. Now, this is a three stages of hell match but a bizarre one for one reason in my mind: It has two main event calibre stipulations instead of one. We have not only a cage match but a ladder match too, it’s overkill in my eyes and I think this is going to hurt the match when rating how good it was.
First, Ric Flair has been ejected from ringside, Michaels pummels Triple H. Triple H tries throwing Michaels over the top rope, Michaels skins the cat and clotheslines Triple H to the floor.

Hard Irish whip by Michaels, make it two. Double axe handle by Michaels, Triple H is rammed into the ring apron. Michaels has a trash can lid, shot to the back by Michaels.

Kip-up by Michaels, chopblock by Triple H. Pedigree by Triple H and the first fall is over.

Triple H pummels Michaels, Michaels misses a dropkick and Triple H catapults Michaels into the cage wall. Michaels is also bleeding, right hands by Triple H.

Sweet Chin Music, Triple H has spilled out to the floor. Michaels edges his way towards the championship, Triple H is up on his feet and Michaels is shoved off the ladder through four tables. Triple H climbs towards his prize and reclaims his throne at the top of The Raw Mountain.
I get what they were going for with this match, they wanted the big epic blow-off between the two, an absolute war between the two very best on Raw but I just do not think it ever came together on this night. The first fall was enjoyable with a lot of work put in by both men, psychology was off with Triple H working the leg of Michaels and by the second fall, that was thrown out the window. Triple H had a heavily taped leg but Michaels never went after that, I thought that was weird.
First fall was finish was funny too, Michaels kips-up forgetting his leg is fucked and Triple H attacks the leg and Pedigrees Michaels. Anyways, the cage match nor the ladder match ever got going, they were very rushed and over within minutes. I do think it was overkill to have a ladder match after a cage match but it was not much of a match, you had Michaels attack Triple H, miss the dive and two finishers before it was over. I did not feel the struggle or the intensity in the last two falls, I felt it needed something and the two big stipulations were not what the match needed. This would be the final time that Michaels ever held a world championship but there were plenty of great matches ahead for The Heartbreak Kid.
Winner: Triple H over Shawn Michaels via Retrieval of The Championship!
WWE’s Armageddon of 2002 was a lacklustre show in my opinion and not a great end to the year for Mcmahon and co. You had some poor booking in terms of A-Train & Edge, some rushed matches from The Raw brand in the case of the women and Batista vs Kane, Smackdown had a good day at the office in terms of building for the next pay per view but the matches specifically Show vs Angle did not deliver and The Three Stages of Hell was not the epic showdown and climax that Triple H & Shawn Michaels could have hoped for as it was rushed and lacked the intensity/emotion that the two men wanted to generate. I would say watch only for Booker T & Goldust finally winning the tag team titles and remember: There’s always another night!
