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

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 goes over clean, as he should (in his heel gimmick), via ankle lock, to cough up the strap. And Kurt has hair!

The full match after the jump.

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.

UPDATE: editorial note--the original videos of this match in two-parts embedded in this article before and after the jump were experiencing technical-privacy issues, so they have been replaced with a promo video as well as a full match video. Please let us know in the comments if you experience any issues going forward. Thanks.
