WWF Attitude: Road to Wrestlemania 2000
I've been with the site for time now but I've just been a lurker. I've been enjoying Wolf Beast's work in the Being The Booker thread. I'd figure out that I'll have a go at Fantasy Booking myself.
So as the title suggests, I'll be Fantasy Booking the WWF from the 3/29/1999-4/2/2000 which would make it the period between Wrestlemania XV and Wrestlemania 2000. I always thought that Wrestlemania 2000 was one event that could've been better but for one reason or another it's always been mediocre for me. At first, I just scribbled down my dream Wrestlemania 2000 card or rather what the Wrestlemania 2000 matches should've been. But then I got interested on how the matches came to be, scribbled down more notes and here I am.
Anyway, I'll leave you with the roster, champions, and shows. I'm currently finishing off my first show which will be the 3/29/1999 show which should be posted about 30 minutes after this one.

Raw Opening Credits

JR: We are 24 hours removed from Wrestlemania XV and by God, weíve got a new WWF Champion. Hello everyone, Iím Jim Ross and alongside me is my colleague Jerry ďThe KingĒ Lawler.

The glass breaks and out comes Stone Cold Steve Austin with the WWF Championship belt.
Finkel: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the NEW World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion, Stone Cold Steve Austin.
The crowd goes crazy as Austin poses on all 4 corners. He gets the microphone and looks around.
Crowd: AUSTIN! AUSTIN! AUSTIN! AUSTIN! AUSTIN! AUSTIN!
The crowd finally quiets down enough for him to speak.
Austin: For the last 6 months Iíve been screwed, Iíve been jerked around, and Iíve been a victim of Vince McMahonís mind games. Well now, Vince, now I put all that screwing, jerking, and mind-gaming into a ball and shove it up your ass. Like it or not, Vince, my name is Stone Cold Steve Austin and I am the World Wrestling Federation Champion.
The crowd cheers as Austin looks at the belt.
Austin: Look at this belt. Itís a crap belt, itís disgraceful, itís pathetic and it stands for everything that Vince McMahon stands for. See, even if I continue to drink beer, cuss, and give people middle fingers, anyone who sees me will associate me with Vince McMahon as long as I have this belt. Do I look like someone who wants to be associated with Vince McMahon? Hell no. Thereís only one person that Stone Cold would want to be associated with and thatís himself. So now, what I want this, Vince, I want my old Smoking Skull belt.

Vince: Well, Stone Cold, before I address your request for your Smoking Skull belt I would like to say that I donít want to be associated with you as much you don't want to be associated with me. Why? Because whenever you are Champion, I am disgraced, I am ashamed, I am degraded.
Austin: I ainít gonna give a damn about you being disgraced, ashamed, or degraded since you started off that way anyway. Now get on my request for my Smoking Skull belt.
Vince: You want your Smoking Skull belt, Austin?
Austin: Are you a deaf bastard, Vince?
Vince: I will not be spoken to like that.

Vince looks very angry but he calms down.
Vince: Austin, right now my Smoking Skull belt is at my home in Stanford, Connecticut. Close to the venue of Thursday's Smackdown, Hartford, Connecticut.
Austin looks angry.
Vince: Wait, Austin, wait, let me finish, I have a proposition to make. I will personally give you your Smoking Skull belt on Smackdown if you successfully defend the WWF Title against an opponent or opponents of my choosing. What do you say to that?
Austin: Youíre saying that if I successfully defend my WWF Title against an opponent of your choosing, I get my Smoking Skull belt?
Vince: Thatís right.
Austin: You got yourself a deal.
Vince: Thatís good. Now as far as your opponents are concerned, tonight, you will defend the WWF Title against Big Show and The Rock. Thatíll be all from me.
Vince and the Corporation leave the stage as Austin stares The Rock and Big Show.
The Corporation is walking backstage, The Rock goes up to Vince.
Vince: Yes, Champ.

Vince: Listen, Rock. The fact of the matter is this, you lost the WWF Title to Stone Cold Steve Austin yesterday.
Rock: So youíre saying that you donít trust The Rock?
