On this date in WWF history: Kurt Angle submits Stone Cold Steve Austin to win the title

Stone Cold Steve Austin didn't lose clean often, but he did on this date in history when he tapped the WWF title away to Kurt Angle at "Unforgiven 2001".

Alright Cagesiders, there's a lot of crazy stuff happening here and if you're a longtime pro wrestling fan like I am, there are plenty of Easter eggs from this Unforgiven main event, which took place on September 23, 2001.

First and foremost, Kurt Angle gets cheered and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin does not. Yes, I realize it's Pittsburgh, the Olympian's hometown, but it's difficult to hear Angle's walkout music without the "YOU SUCK" chants.

It actually feels incomplete!

It should also be noted that Austin puts Angle over clean, as he should (in his heel gimmick), via ankle lock, to cough up the strap. And Kurt has hair!

The match:

Two of the best of all time Cagesiders, how do you rate this pay-per-view headliner?

Kurt Angle vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin at Unforgiven 2001 gets __ out of 5 stars.
