5 Worst Wrestling Matches Of 2001
- No matter how much WWE might try to spin things to suit their own ideas, they can't bury bad matches like these...
4. Brothers of Destruction vs DDP & Kanyon - SummerSlam 2001
This is the match that made some fans think that the Undertaker legitimately did his best to ‘bury’ WCW wrestlers DDP and Kanyon. Now, the word ‘bury’ in wrestling parlance is thrown around a lot by more jaded wrestling fans and is used to describe a situation where one wrestler is decimated so badly that they cannot hope to recover.
Given how DDP and Kanyon were so utterly demolished by the Brothers of Destruction, such a term might actually make sense. In one of the most one-sided matches in SummerSlam history, Undertaker & Kane decimated these two WCW wrestlers so decisively that nothing they could ever to afterwards could ever make them into legitimate threats ever again.
Neither DDP nor Kanyon got much offence in, so the slaughter by the Brothers of Destruction felt like it went on for an eternity. It was almost like they were trying to send a message to the WCW wrestlers, particularly Page. Rumours at the time suggested DDP tried to tell Undertaker what to do in their match, which the Deadman allegedly took the wrong way.
Though such rumours were never proven, the ensuing one-sided destruction (pun intended) does indeed give them credibility.Published 08 Dec 2018, 09:17 IST
