Re: Rooting for heels in the AE
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.
Are we talking 1999-2001 HHH and the Internet community? then you're wrong as the thread I posted shows you as well.
If you're talking 2003-2005 Evolution version of HHH, then you're right. People hated him bad almost to personal levels.
