Thats not how I remember it. HHH was detested and every week there was a new burial conspiracy, e.g. Jericho, Mr. Ass. I remember the IWC were convinced that the arrival of the Radicalz would prove once and for all HHH's political burials. And the Rock... he was adored at first but the WWF really did overkill his face run. The IWC turned on him eventually. Casuals caught up (Boo'ed out of Summerslam 2002). Personally I loved heel Rock. 98-99 was his best run, his face run got stale really fast. He was painfully over exposed in 2000 and everyone on the roster, save for HHH was fed to him. Their iron-man match as a legit highlight though, the feud shoulda been ended there.
