I’m stuck in an airport right now and have nothing better to do than dream I was getting ready to watch WWE Armageddon. Actually, there are probably ten different events I would rather watch than this year’s version of the December classic but that’s not the point.
The point is I’ve always liked Armageddon. Maybe it’s because it’s the last PPV of the year or maybe because it actually has produced some great matches and moments.
That said, I thought I would take a trip down memory lane and relive the greatest moments in Armageddon history.
3. 1999 – A Sign Of Things To Come: Mr. McMahon vs. HHH: I loved this match and call me naive but I was actually genuinely surprised by the swerve at the end. All three participants (HHH, Vince and Stephanie) did a tremendous job here.
2. 2000 – Six-Pack!: Hey, anytime you have Angle, Austin, Rock, HHH, ‘Taker aaaaand Rikishi you have yourself an awesome main event. Seriously, how out of place does Rikishi seem in this one? To his credit, he did take one sick bump off the cage.
1. 2001 – Undisputed Champ: I know what you are thinking: Jericho’s victories over The Rock and Austin in one night to become the undisputed champ happened at Vengeance not Armageddon. But if you recall, that year WWE decided to drop the Armageddon name due to its proximity to 9/11. So, while it didn’t happen at Armageddon it did happen in December and that, my friends, is good enough for me. By the way, why can’t they have one-night tournaments like this one again?
