Number 14: WWE Championship Match Kurt Angle (c) fought Stone Cold Steve Austin to a No Contest January 8, 2001
Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle put his WWE Championship on the line against The Texas Rattlesnake "Stone Cold" Steve Austin the squared circle. The competitive styles of the two Superstars could not have been more different and they used their respective skill sets in a battle that could have lasted all night. Austin went after Angle, trying to simply brawl with the Olympic hero, but Angle’s amateur prowess was enough to counter Austin’s aggressive offense.
They battled in and out of the ring with The Rattlesnake taking out WWE Commissioner William Regal at ringside. The battle raged and the WWE Universe in San Jose, Calif., watched in anticipation of a winner being declared, anxiously anticipating the final three-count after Austin hit Angle with a Stunner. But a new champion would not be crowned as Triple H pulled the referee from the ring, ending the bout in a no contest. Although no clear winner was determined, there is no doubt that Austin and Angle competed in one of the finest matches ever broadcast on Raw.
