I find wrestling to always be more interesting when the McMahons are involved, especially back when Stephanie and Shane were in it.
I think we can all agree that involving Linda was pretty much a bad idea.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

...but that is just ONE McMahon that shouldn't be there. It's great when Vince, Shane and Stephanie are involved. Linda was involved in one dumb storyline, which ended up actually being pretty damn funny.

I see it as the end of the attitude era. The nail in the coffin so to speak.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

The biggest have already been mentioned: The Invasion, turning Austin heel, not pushing Jericho right after his hot debut.

After that, all of the mistakes are minor and small in comparison, because the Attitude era was so successful, even from a financial standpoint.

But to me, after the ones I already listed above, I hated the WM 2000 main event of the fatal four way. 2000 was a great year for the WWF, even from an in-ring standpoint. 2000 might be the best year from an in-ring standpoint in the Attitude era, along with 1997. But, IMO, a fatal fourway can never be the main event of WM. Any other PPV? Sure. But not WM. The main event for WM, in my mind, always has to be a 1 on 1 match. To me, they dropped the ball on that one. It should have been Triple H vs Rock.

Triple H was the hottest heel in the business at this point. Rock was the hottest face in the business, with Austin out for the year. They were both in their prime. No reason these two couldn't be in the main event and pull off at least a 4 star match. Nothing against Foley and Big Show, but their presence in this match just jumbled the match.

Like I said, not a huge mistake in the grand scheme of things. But we probably got cheated out of a classic match featuring the most over heel and face in the business, both in their prime.

Agreed. The main event at Backlash 2000 should've been the main event of Wrestlemania 2000, Austin run-in and all.

My Top Ten Favorite Wrestlers of All-Time
1. Stone Cold Steve Austin
2. The Rock
3. Undertaker
4. Kane
5. CM Punk
6. Shawn Michaels
7. Daniel Bryan
8. Goldberg
9. Triple H
10. Mick Foley

Those are my top ten and I really don't care who agrees or disagrees.

The main event of Backlash with Rock/Triple H and everything involved in the match including Stone Cold Steve Austin was exactly what was meant to happen but couldn't do because Stone Cold Steve Austin wasn't even able to do the brief involvement he did due to his neck surgery. A lot of people don't get why Stone Cold Steve Austin wasn't around from in between Backlash and Unforgiven but just that brief involvement at Backlash was something he was warned against by the doctors so WrestleMania 16 was out of the question.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

Hot-shotting the titles too often, they made titles irrelevant to the point where now we have tons of guys with multiple title reigns where as before that we only had a handful of guys who'd achieved that.
