Ok, I've been keeping track of every match on WWF TV, thanks to the extensive archive of show summarys at slashwrestling.com . I've gotten back to Judgement Day 2001, which was a time when I wasn't really paying much attention to the WWF. So I need someone's help regarding the match between Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle. First Benoit gets a pinfall, then Angle gets a submission, then Angle wins by climbing a ladder? So was it both a 2/3 falls match AND a ladder match? How does that work?
It was a 2/3 falls match with a different stipulation each fall, ala Austin-HHH from No Way Out 2001. First fall was straight wrestling. Second fall was submissions only. Third fall was a ladder match, with the medals as the goal.
Last time a Survivor Series was held in MSG, we got that classic Hart/Austin match that helped change the WWF and move it out of the cartoonish gimmick fuck that killed business and helped WCW win the ratings war.
