Recap
1 July 2002 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

The first-ever SummerSlam extravaganza was headlined by a battle for supremacy in WWE. On one side, the `Megapowers' - Hulk Hogan and WWE Champion, Randy `Macho Man' Savage. On the other were the `Megabucks' - `The Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBasie and Andre the Giant. DiBiase and his millions thought this match was in the bank with the announcement of the special referee, the notorious Jesse `The Body' Ventura. But victory was not to be, as Ventura was forced to make the three count when Hogan delivered his famous legdrop to earn the win for he and the Macho Man. Also, the Ultimate Warrior made history by defeating the Honky Tonk Man in 30 seconds to capture the WWE Intercontinental Championship. The win ended Honky's 18-month reign as IC Champion, the longest in WWE history.

The British Bulldogs battled the Rougeaus to a 20-minute draw Bad News Brown pinned Ken Patera Rick Rude defeated Junkyard Dog by DQ The Powers of Pain defeated the Bolsheviks The Ultimate Warrior pinned the Honky Tonk Man to win the Intercontinental Title Dino Bravo pinned Don Muraco World Tag Team Champions Demolition defeated the Hart Foundation Big Boss Man pinned Koko B. Ware Jake "the Snake" Roberts pinned Hercules Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage defeated Andre the Giant and Ted DiBiase
