Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

I can't believe I'm saying that but Yosihait is absolutely right. Kane winning the Rumble would have been beyond stupid.

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.
lol, you have a point, and you're prolly right but at the time i thought it was just soooooooooooo predictable to have Austin win and Kane was awesome in that rumble. The right decision was made obviously hahhaahahahaha.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

the rikishi heel turn, was just so pointless imo.

he went from headlining a ppv (armageddon 2000 6 man HIAC) to beyond obscurity in 2001. (cant actually remember him doing anything of note in 2001) then they had him come back as if nothing had happend in 2002.

He was supposed to team with Haku against Kane and Taker at Mania 17 but that match was cancelled at the last minute. I think Rikishis ear injury might have had something to do with it. In any event this injury prevented him to participate at Mania.

He came back in May but within weeks he suffered a shoulder injury that put him out of action until December.

So 2001 being lackluster for Riksihi was more because of bad luck instead of being misused or not pushed. What really killed Rikishi was his heel turn in 2000 though.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

The Katie Vick saga - Triple HHH publicly stated in a later interview there was a real funeral taking place in the room next door and he was told to be quiet whilst humping the corpse.

Anything involving Big Boss Man

Anything involving Mae Young

Test/Steiner abusing Stacy Kiebler (or was that just afterwards?)

Won't cross until
