• 20 Years Ago Today, The Undertaker Achieved Something That No One Else Will
On this day in 2002, World Wrestling Entertainment aired ‘Judgment Day 2002’ LIVE on PPV from the Entertainment Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
This was the 1st ever WWE pay-per-view after the WWF/WWE name change on May 5, 2002, although a lot of the promotional material still had the old World Wrestling Federation Logo on it.
It was the 4th Judgment Day PPV out of 11 the WWF/WWE aired between 1998 and 2009.
This PPV featured the 1st WWE Championship change after the WWF/WWE name change.
In the main event, The Undertaker made history by defeating Hulk Hogan for the WWE Title, thus becoming the only man who has defeated Hogan twice for the WWF/E Championship (with his first win being at Survivor Series 1991).
This was also Undertaker’s final WWE Championship victory (he only won the World Heavyweight Championship after this).
Here are the PPV results:
– WWE Intercontinental Championship: Eddie Guerrero (c) defeated Rob Van Dam
– WWE Women’s Championship: Trish Stratus (c) defeated Stacy Keibler
