TAPE 395

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 3.3 hrs (2 DVD)

WWF ROYAL RUMBLE 2001 - 1/21/01 (After a few lackluster PPVs to end up 2000, the WWF comes out firing with this one. GREAT show, highlighted by two outstanding matches and then, of course, the Royal Rumble. I've got a master convert of this so quality is EX!)
Edge & Christian vs Dudley Boyz (Dudleys win the WWF tag titles - ***1/2) CHRIS BENOIT VS CHRIS JERICHO (Ladder match - *GREAT* match. Tons of great spots, hot action, you name it, it's all here. Just a super, super match that shows why both of these guys should be getting true main event pushes. Jericho wins the I-C title. ****1/2!) Ivory vs Chyna (Crap match ends with a bad "shoot" angle with Chyna getting stretchered out. Bad stuff here.) Kurt Angle vs Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Good match!) Royal Rumble KURT ANGLE VS STEVE AUSTIN, WWF RAW, 1/8/01 (Excellent match that sees Austin take about a million suplexes from Angle. Too bad they kill it with a horrid finish.****) The Rock & Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit & Big Show, WWF Raw, 1/22/01 (Benoit carries this match to ***1/2. EX VQ.)
