15 Years Ago Today Chris Jericho Defeated The Rock And Steve Austin To Become WWE Undisputed Champion.

Posted By: WrestlingNewsSource.com on Dec 09, 2016

It’s been 15 years since Chris Jericho earned the right to call himself WWE Undisputed Champion, in a match that will be forever remembered as the night Jericho defeated both The Rock and Steve Austin. 

The year was 2001. The WCW and ECW invasion angle had come to an end after team WWE won the main event at Survivor Series, The WCW/ECW alliance was no more and WWE was left with two World Championships. The Rock was the WCW Champion and Steve Austin was the WWE Champion.

There was only one way to settle who would be the Undisputed Champion and that was at the very first Vengeance pay-per-view on December 9, 2001. The pay-per-view featured a three-match tournament to unify the WCW Championship and the WWE Championship. Steve Austin retained his championship when he defeated Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho won the WCW Championship by beating The Rock. Jericho then met Steve Austin in the main event and won. The rest was history.
