Some useless trivia that I found interesting, don't think I've seen it mentioned on this board anywhere:

Assuing that the stipulations for the title match hold, this will be the sixth consecutive May PPV in which the Undertaker has been involved with the title match in some capacity, be it wrestling, doing a run in or acting as a special enforcer.

And having typed that, I'll go back to that corner over there, where all the other useless knowledge lies

D'oh. Misread it. I thought you meant 6 consecutive PPVs.I don't recall him running in on Rock-Jericho at the Royal Rumble...

He said May PPVs, not PPVs in a row. And he's right, actually..

2002 - Undertaker v. Hogan for the World title (presumably).
2001 - Undertaker loses to World champion Austin.
2000 - Undertaker returns in the Rock-HHH title match, causes Rock to lose to HHH.
1999 - Undertaker pins Austin to win the World title.
1998 - Undertaker is the special enforcer for Austin in his match against Dude Love.
1997 - Undertaker defends the World title against Austin.

His May title match history actually goes back to May 1996, when he lost to Goldust in a casket match for the Intercontinental title.

Oh, I completly forgot about that casket match! Although, since it was for the IC and not the Heavyweight title, it doesn't change things TOO much
Heh, this is why the WWF is in no hurry to have Taker retire. Whatever would they do for the month of May?

Well, the last time we had an Undertaker-less May PPV, Diesel was defending the title against Sid.

No wonder they're keeping 'Taker around, they need to keep the workrate up.

Another interesting (or not...) Undertaker PPV streak was that for a while he fought in even-numbered years at the Royal Rumble for the WWF Title:

1992- Fought in Rumble match for vacant title
1994- Lost to WWF Champ Yokozuna in casket match
1996- Pinned by WWF Champ Bret Hart
1998- Lost to WWF Champ Shawn Michaels in casket match

This of course means nothing, and was killed when Taker wasn't active for the 2000 Royal Rumble.

Wasn't Judgement Day originally the Undertaker's PPV, back when he was dark and creepy? Or am I thinking of another PPV?

Judgement Day has been Taker's PPV through just the title. I don't know who has a consistant PPV name that fits the character more than Judgement Day for Taker. To his credit, Taker has really used that PPV to make for some great moments. If he does retire they may have to change the PPV name to something else. I do wonder if they will keep Invasion as the PPV name for Fully Loaded or change it back again? It would be cool to see NWO or another faction invade one of the shows as long as NWO has two crediable wresters in their stable.

A Fan- Taker's return at Judgement Day 2000 is one of those great wrestling moments of all time.

I think they've already announced that the name of the July PPV will be Fully Loaded again... not Invasion.

Damn. Watching some of those old tapes I have, it's amazing how the WWF fucked up the Invasion, isn't it?

You know what's even more amazing ekedolphin? How much the internet was praising and pimping it when it was actually happening. In fact, I remember quite a few columns on this site condemning anybody who thought the Invasion was stupid. But this was after ECW came on. To this day I think ECW getting involved wasn't a stupid idea, just a poorly executed one, so what was the point of doing it?

I believe you are correct. Back in 1997, The Austin/Undertaker match headlined IYH: Cold Day in Hell.

Actually, Taker did headline the first Judgement Day PPV, in OCt of 1998. So now we've got another use(ful/less) factoid:

Taker has been involved in the title match in some type of capacity for all the Judgement Day PPVs.


Granted, some of this is akin to Lincoln and Kennedy both having a VP named Johnson, but....

I can see where WWE wouldn't want anything to do with the wagering question. That could invite a level of scrutiny that they just don't wan to have to deal with. And I can also see where PPV results leaks could have an effect on buys.
