Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?
Austin's Heel Turn < the mania swerve (which was rumored leading up btw people fyi) and the two man power trip was actually very very ruthless and messed up. Austin acting like a dumbass coward singing songs in the summer and fall of 2001 messed up his heel turn/character.
The Mania 2000 main event; should have been Rock vs HHH with the Rock winning the title; the crowd was more than ready for it. If they HAD to have Austin involved at Backlash, have same exact scenario happen at Backlash except the Rock barely retains the title.
more wrestling in 1999; while very entertaining storyline wise, this year is by far the worst wrestling wise in the Era. Fortunately the next year compensated.
Should have just made it HHH that hit Austin instead of the whole "I did it for da rock" - soooo dumb and almost pointless.
IMO; Have Kane win the 2001 royal rumble with HHH screwing Austin. Kane's performance was so awesome, i was so pissed off when Austin predictably won. HHH and AUstin still have their match at NWO. Kane somehow loses his spot to Austin on Raw or Smackdown.
Couldn't have changed this but DLo was over HUGE in 1999 and after that Droz injury was never the same. He could've been such a much bigger player!
