WRESTLEMANIA REWIND: RAVEN VS. BIG SHOW VS. KANE FOR THE WWE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP AT WRESTLEMANIA X-7 4/1/01 |
POSTED ON April 1 2017
It's #ManiaWeek and we thought we'd take the opportunity here to look back at Raven's last Wrestlemania moment at Wrestlemania X-7, which took place 16 years ago today at the Houston Astrodome. In this match, Raven defended his WWE Hardcore Championship in a triple-threat title match against Kane and The Big Show!
Though Raven lost, this is one of the most memorable hardcore matches in WWE history, one which involved Kane and Show throwing themselves through walls, and multiple golf cart chases. This is also one of the rare hardcore matches that didn't utilize the 24/7 title defense rule. It was contested under triple-threat rules, which is how Kane won. Kane pinned Big Show, not the champion Raven, thus ending Raven's 11th reign as Hardcore Champion which lasted 13 days. At one point, Raven crashed his cart into the power cords providing the satellite feed for cable, which could've taken the show off the air!
