• The Final Televised WWF Event Took Place 20 Years Ago Today
On May 4, 2002, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘Insurrextion 2002’ LIVE on PPV from the Wembley Arena in London, England.
This was the 3rd out of 4 annual Insurrextion pay-per-views the WWF/WWE held between 2000 and 2003.
It’s also remembered as the very last televised “WWF” event, because the company changed its name from World Wrestling Federation to World Wrestling Entertainment the next day, so the Monday Night RAW episode two days after Insurrextion was already promoted under the WWE banner.
Here are the PPV results:
– WWF Intercontinental Championship: Rob Van Dam defeated Eddie Guerrero (c) by DQ
– Jacqueline & Trish Stratus defeated Jazz & Molly Holly
– X-Pac defeated Bradshaw
– WWF Hardcore Championship: Booker T defeated Steven Richards (c)
– The Hardy Boyz defeated Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak
– WWF European Championship: Spike Dudley (c) defeated William Regal
– Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Big Show
– Triple H defeated The Undertaker
