Recap, 1 July 2002
Author: Spawn Devil from Vancouver, B.C.

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.
