The first half of 1999 was unbelievable.

- Rock and Austin's first Wrestlemania battle

- The corporate ministry

- Vince setting up Austin

- Big Show's arrival

I can only watch from July 98 onwards. The main events interest me but I find it hard watching wrestlers I can't like however hard I try (Vader, Marc Mero, Dan Severn and a couple others) as well as the early days of The Rock, Outlawz and Triple H. I will however once I've seen 2002 watch the main events involving Austin, HBK and Bret Hart.

I've voted for 99 - purely because I loved the Steph McMahon turn on Vince at Armageddon but 2000 was a quality year. Someone earlier on has listed some of the quality moments of early 99 - for me it was quality all year through - just as 2000 was!

For me its a toss up between 98 and 00. The WWF was so focused during those years. In 99 they kind of lost their way with outrageous acts and I think the unfortunate loss of Owen Hart affected them more than they like to admit, and naturally, that is OK. That said, the year 2000 in the WWF was pure magic man. I wish Austin was there, but to be honest, his absence is what caused the writers and Vince to fire on all cylinders in another manner.

I don't remember his name, but the head writer from back then used to storyboard out the storylines so that everything was cohesive. Dude even received legit heat from the boys because of it. "He's trying to make us like hollywood" were some of the quotes you'd see on the dirt sheets... yet those storyboard are what kept everything together, for everyone and the WWF saw its best year for that time period because of it.

1999 was my fav, you had face Austin and face Rock together in there prime. You had Taker/Foley and the god awful Hunter-McMahon storyline ruined 2000 for me
