And it would be reasonable. Jake had every reason in the world to be the higher power. Besides, they could've bring him for two months or something like this, to brawl with Austin at KOTR.

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!

This happened because Rikishi bailed on his heel push. They had no other choice but HHH.

Then what about Mania match between Austin and Rock? Rumble win was essential. Austin's heel turn was much more important than Kane winning the rumble right?

Agree. This was brought up in another thread. I was a big D'Lo fan at that time. Everything he did at that time was gold from the chest protector to being announced as the European Champion as a native of some random European city to his unique moveset to the head wiggle. It's a real shame.

Yeah. He definitely was over. He got a loud reaction in his match against Jeff Jarrett at Summerslam 99. I don't think he would have been a main event star but he definitely could have still been a top mid-card wrestler, not getting depushed and not being replaced by Drew Carey in the 2001 Royal Rumble.

How can anyone say that? You REALLY want Kane's victory to mean nothing and that Austin will come to Wrestlemania without winning the Rumble?

If anyone didn't need that victory- It was Kane. First- you don't need the "Respect" of winning the Rumble but losing the Wrestlemania match- That's what makes it important. And second- 12 years passed since that Rumble, and people are still talking about Kane in that match, so he didn't need that victory. The Rumble victory should go to the man that deserves it- And that was Austin.

The only reason why Kane's performance was awesome was because that was the booking. He never did anything great in this match- The bookers just have him eliminating 11 people and that what made him look good. Kane looked great in this match- But no one wanted to see him win. Everyone wanted to see Austin winning it because that was the real big thing.

Kane not winning the Royal Rumble 2001
Vince winning the WWF championship (not for nothin tho he was huge!)
I always thought they should have pushed to bring in Sting say what you will it would have made a massive splash.
Making the Hardcore Championship defense 24/7 kind of diminished it into obscurity.
but hey all and all we cant really complain because we would all take the old stuff back over whats happening lately haha

Why? Please, explain why. Why would anyone want to see that big red retard winning the match that led to the best main event ever?

Why?
