On This Day 18 years ago…
On this day 18 years ago, Unforgiven emanated from the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In the main event Kurt Angle defeated Steve Austin for the WWE Title.
The event drew 13,855 fans at the arena which saw the finish of the match include Steve Austin being forced to submit to Angle’s ankle lock . After the match members of the crowd and Angle’s family celebrated with the former Olympic Gold medallist in the ring.
However, the finish was somewhat controversial as Austin appeared to have his hand under the bottom rope when submitting to the Ankle lock.
Steve Austin would regain the WWE Championship shortly after on the October 8 episode of Raw is War with the help of on-screen WWE Commissioner William Regal.
