Oh hey, look at that. Um, yeah, the Attitude Era is a time I'm just about old enough to remember, but I remember it fondly. So fondly that many moons ago on another forum, I tried to do an Attitude Era project. Sadly, it didn't go very far. But this will.

Shows will be in recap, as again, that's all I have time for right now. But hey, embrace the fun and craziness of the time period and you'll barely notice. I hope.
News post to follow to set the scene, but for now... welcome to 1999. We're on the dawn of a new millennium. And the
WWE WWF is about to undergo a change in attitude.

Re: World Wrestling Federation: A Change In Attitude
Thank you all for the well wishes. Let's crack on, shall we?
March 28th, 1999
The opening bout saw Hardcore Holly defeated Billy Gunn and Al Snow in a Triple Threat Match to become the new Hardcore Champion. The champion Gunn thought he had the match sewn up after hitting Snow with the Fame-Asser, only for Holly to crack Gunn with a chair, allowing him to pin Snow instead.
Canadian Country retained the WWF Tag Team Championships against the makeshift team of D'Lo Brown and Test. In the pre-show Sunday Night Heat, Brown and Test were the last two men standing in a 21 Man Battle Royal, earning them a shot at the champions, however any sense of teamwork didn't last long as the champions took advantage of the problems between the two to retain their titles.
In the Brawl For All Match, Butterbean dominated Bart Gunn, knocking him out in 38 seconds for an easy win.
Mankind earned the right to referee tonight's main event after he defeated The Big Show via disqualification after Show drove Mankind through a pair of steel chairs with a Chokeslam. This of course drew the ire of Mr. McMahon, who wound up slapping the 7-footer in an act of frustration. This resulted in McMahon being leveled with a big right hand, which wound up earning Paul Wight a night in a jail cell, bringing an end to his association with The Corporation, while Mankind headed to the hospital.
Road Dogg saw off the challenge of Goldust, Ken Shamrock and Val Venis to remain Intercontinental Champion in a Four Corners Elimination Match. After Shamrock and Venis were both counted out, Goldust seemed to be in control, until an accidental trip by Ryan Shamrock allowed Road Dogg to counter a Powerslam for the victory. In the post-match, Goldust followed the earlier lead of Val Venis by dumping Ryan, leaving a distraught Shamrock to race backstage in tears.
Kane defeated Triple H by disqualification after he was struck with a steel chair by Chyna. In doing so, Chyna turned her back on Kane, leaving him brokenhearted, while Chyna and Triple H reunited under the D-Generation X banner.
Sable saw off Tori to remain Women's Champion after the debut of Sable's monstrous new bodyguard, Nicole Bass, who destroyed Tori to give Sable the easy victory.
Shane McMahon survived the challenge of X-Pac to remain European Champion in a match littered with interference. Despite the constant interference of Test at ringside, and the threat of the Mean Street Posse in the front row of the crowd, X-Pac appeared to have the match won until Triple H and Chyna hit the ring, handing the win to Shane, and in the process revealing that they were infact both members of The Corporation. Post match, the assault of X-Pac continued until Kane made the save, but it was clear that Triple H and Chyna had turned their backs on D-X forever.
The first ever WrestleMania Hell in a Cell Match saw The Undertaker defeat The Big Boss Man in yet another blow to The Corporation. In the aftermath, The Brood rappelled onto the roof of the cell and lowered a noose down to their leader, who promptly hung Boss Man in yet another symbolic gesture towards Vince McMahon.
Before the main event, Mr. McMahon announced that with Mankind unable to fulfill his refereeing duties, he himself would take Mankind's place. However, this was overruled by WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels, who announced Tim White as referee.
And with the WWF Championship on the line, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin defeated The Rock after Mankind returned from the hospital to deliver the final three count. Mankind proved to be the fourth referee in the match, with Tim White, Mike Chioda and Earl Hebner all being removed from the match in one way or another. Post match, Austin celebrated by dousing McMahon in beer, then held a beer bash with the Philadelphia faithful as WrestleMania XV went off the air.
WCW Talent Walks Out On Company
We have learned that sometime during the last two weeks, a prominent member of the WCW roster stood up during a meeting with Eric Bischoff and simply declared he was leaving the company with immediate effect. Apparently during a recent sitdown with the entire WCW roster, Bischoff challenged anyone sat before him who wasn't happy working in WCW to simply stand up and take their release. We understand that at least one frustrated performer is said to have taken Bischoff up on his offer due to what's been described as "the pathetic way they've used him lately". No word yet on whether or not this wrestle has signed a contract with rival company WWF, but if he did, a strong case could be made for him to appear on tonight's post-WrestleMania Raw is War.
Financial Worries Continue For ECW
The troubles continue for Philadelphia based ECW as recent financial reports show that the company continue to head further into debt, with substantial amounts of money being owed to talent and production staff. ECW Owner Paul Heyman was rumored to have met with WWF Chairman Vince McMahon over WrestleMania weekend, a story which won't surprise anyone given the recent revelations of a longstanding partnership between Heyman and McMahon. It's believed that if these financial troubles continue, Heyman would be willing to sell up to McMahon, allowing the WWF to not only acquire a considerable video library, but also to bring in certain key ECW talent. No doubt more will be revealed over the coming months, but an indication of the company's health moving forward will no doubt be apparent after the next ECW pay-per-view, Hardcore Heaven.
Jim Ross Returning To Broadcast Table
Last night at WrestleMania XV saw the return of Jim Ross to the WWF announce team as he called the WWF Championship Match alongside Jerry Lawler. We've heard that the move was taken after Steve Austin and The Rock both requested that Ross call their match, something that Vince McMahon ultimately agreed to. What this means for the recent angle involving Ross and 'Dr. Death' Steve Williams remains to be seen, but all that we know for certain right now is that Ross will be alongside Lawler for tonight's Raw Is War.
You've all probably guessed by now that I'll be definitely stretching the realms of truth in this thread. What can I say? I want to have a little fun with this, and that means being a bit unrealistic. Hopefully you all won't mind. Anyway, I'm not gonna bother posting a preview, I'll just post the show in a day or two. Bye for now.
