Unforgiven 2001



Arnold Furious: The wrestling world, nay the entire world, was thrown into chaos in September 2001. The terror attacks on New York City sent ripples out across the planet and in the USA in particular patriotism was top dog. Unforgiven came about just two weeks after the 9/11 attacks so the WWF had a chance to put the world right by having their own all-American Olympic hero Kurt Angle chase the WWF Title. All of a sudden it was like being back in the 80s, and what a babyface Kurt would have been in the 80s! We’re in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Hosts are Jim Ross and Paul Heyman. We kick off with a super patriotic rendition of ‘America the Beautiful’ by Jennifer Holliday. The atmosphere is charged, but it won’t stay that way.
