I took it off because 1996 is not the Attitude Era. Some people argue that it wasn't official until McMahon made his promo about the change in direction with the product. As far as which year I voted for 1997 based on the Austin/Hart feud, USA/Hart Foundation feud, Michaels/Hart feud, Undertaker's WWF Title reign, the Kane build, DX, awesome matches including arguably the two greatest matches in company history, the most controversial match in company history, and so much more.

1998 is close in storylines with Austin/McMahon, the EPIC Highway To Hell build in the summer, Deadly Game build in the fall, pretty much everything involving Austin/McMahon/Taker/Kane/Foley, The Rock's emergence getting over huge, DX vs. Nation, Taker/Mankind Hell In A Cell, TYSON, and more. The only thing is '98 didn't have as many great matches as '97.
