From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Armageddon was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment. The event began in December 1999, and followed the Survivor Series pay-per-view in November. The event was held in December every year, except for 2001, when it was replaced with Vengeance.

From 2004 to 2006 the event was exclusive to the SmackDown! brand, with the 2003 event being exclusive to the Raw brand. The official Armageddon theme song is called "The End", which originally appeared on WWE Anthology Disc 3. The song was composed by the WWE's music producer, Jim Johnston. "The End" has continuously been remade/remixed since the original version (on Anthology) was used during the opening montage for the 2000 event, including an extended version reaching nearly seven minutes in length that has been the mainstay theme for the past few Armageddon PPVs. The extended version was made available for purchase and download on WWE.com, then later available on the album WWE The Music, Vol. 7.

In 2009, the event's pay-per-view slot was replaced by TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.[1]
