Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15
Undertaker in 1999 was a strange year.
He was out of action at the end of 1998 thanks to Austin, but then returns literally a few weeks later under a new look, and the fans cheered for him instantly. The Ministry were originally faces (not sure if they were supposed to be but the fans dug it), and employed endless heel tactics by ganging up on the Bossman every other week or so (why him, I do not know).
Taker was saddled with a lot of shit at this time - the sacrifice angle with Mideon, the hanging, the embalming of Steve Austin, the Unholy Wedding (which actually made for good TV). I remember seeing the hanging incident and being quite frightened. I was a very naive 14 year old.
