On this day in 2002, World Wrestling Entertainment aired another LIVE episode of their weekly TV show ‘WWE Monday Night RAW’.
It was broadcasted from the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire and featured matches & storyline segments on the road to the ‘WWE Vengeance 2002’ PPV.
This show featured a Ladder match for the WWE Undisputed Championship between The Undertaker and Jeff Hardy in the main event, which was a classic match and is still talked about by the fans today.
