vinces constant face/heel turns from 99 - 00 was annoying to see they should have kept him heel throughout

The constant Mcmahon shit. Almost every brilliant storyline they had faded out because of it. The Ministry turning into The Corporate Ministry was the biggest example and really killed The Undertaker's character at the time.

Austin's heel turn would be the 2nd biggest mistake. Really unneccesary, impulsive decision, especially considering The Rock had to go off and shoot movies.

A mistake that I had forgotten about was Road Warrior Hawk's painkiller addiction and subsequent suicide attempt on Raw... cringeworthy.

Taking an actual serious problem in the industry and making a joke out of it is awful even by Attitude Era standards.

This. They couldve had Austin win fair, Vince come in and kinda just pat him on the back, then out of nowhere Trips comes out and lays Austin out. End the show with Trips over Austin. Fuck, you couldve even had Vince book Triple H vs Austin right there with Triple H getting the victory. At Backlash you have Taker vs HHH vs Austin. Sets up a good feud.

I agree in the fact that I loved Foley when he had that sit down interview with JR and went over his life story. He was still deranged enough and a little more human.

That said, they had to increase his marketability, especially since they wanted to use him as a spot main-eventer. Mick has great comedic timing and the fans ate it up. I'm sure he would tell you himself that he needed to make the change to be even more likable.

Way they handled Big Show when he came in

You had a guy who is 7"2, 500 pounds and yet you have lose within a few weeks of him arriving. He could have drawn MASSIVE money for the company if built properly and not just treated like any other guy

The heavy focus on the McMahons was a big mistake as well
