I know most people say that Rock/Austin is one of the greatest feuds of all time, and i agree. But did any of you guys ever get bored of it?

I'm sure if it went past 2003 or even was constant through 1999-2003. I would of probably gotten sick of it. But considering both Rock & Austin had different feuds leading up to the respective matches. I was never really that bored of their feud. All three of their 'Mania matches especially still entertain me. Even if it was more constant, I don't know for sure if I would of gotten tired of it. As those were two guys that had great chemistry together in the ring. And their WMXIX was a great way to end it too.

Agree with this. The fact their feuds were the perfect length and they never overdid it even though the temptatiOn must of been there to. I read once years ago the Plan for 1999 was them to do the WrestleMania 15 match then do a series of five pay per views. Kind of a best of five series. However with The Rock becoming so popular it was felt they couldn't do it as a face verse face series.

No. The first run was amazing, excellent full-throttle brawl at WMXV. Then second one, maybe even better. The whole Deborah slant just made it better. I remember being late for school because of WMXVII

Now Rock Vs HHH, there's a feud that burned me out pretty quickly.

I'm not a Rock guy, so yeah, very much so. I didn't really care for their feud much tbh.

Not really because for the most part they kept their distance until it was time for the big time events such as WM. Nowadays they just keep the feuds going until i becomes a case of beating a dead horse with anothet dead horse.

I think the last run with the WMIX match was unneccessary, considering you could've paired off Austin with Hogan in the dream match, and have Rock vs Flair or even Taker.

Yes, around 2000 when they started doing the same stuff differently. I got tired of Jabroni, hell yeah, the opponent lying down waiting for people's elbow, the middle finger salute before and beer drinking after winning a match. To their credit, they tried as much as they were allowed to during their run for Mr.Mcmahon being the shrewd businessman he is, would like to stick with what works and milk it out the maximum.
