Rock should have won the 2000 Rumble in a cleaner way then won WM 16 clean, but of course politics runs WWE as usual.

It wouldve also made far more since to have SC win the title at No Way Out 2001 or maybe even Royal Rumble 01 then have him face Rock and have the finish be the same as WM 17.

Then at Rocks first PPV back at Summerslam have him beat SC and hold the title til Vengeance bc it was retarded to have your top heel hold the title forever. Not to mention he was supposedly WCW yet had the WWF title while Rock was WWF and had the WCW title, yet again politics running WCW over common sense situations

Um, Austin was injured back then (Unless I didn't understand you right).

Besides... I gotta say that I understand why Rock didn't won the title. Not politics. They wanted a high buyrate for Backlash and they wanted to do a finish with Austin. It worked, by the way. Worked really well.

Re: Biggest mistakes in the Attitude Era?

Obviously turning Austin heel since from that point on business was just never the same. Fans didn't buy it and while it may have given his character a new lease on life fans weren't interested in watching him receive his comeuppance.

But if we're just poking fun at the Attitude Era...

NWA Invasion - Don't know if it was McMahon trying to hoard whatever talent or if it was just a big take that at Cornette shooting on the company but the whole idea sucked. Just a bunch of has-beens & Severn wasting television time.

Brawl 4 All - Dumb concept that exposed the business, injured a bunch of talent and failed to achieve what it intended to. Completely ruined whatever appeal Dr. Death may have had.

Lion Den Matches - They weren't bad matches, but the audience could care less.

Shamrock post 98 - They really built him up well...and then they just made him a Corporate stooge before having him lose to Vince in his own match. Just seemed like a huge waste.

Nicole Bass - Really?

PMS - The whole miscarriage storyline was just painful to watch. Nobody wants to see it on their telly.

Beaver Cleavage - Nor incest storylines.

Vince McMahon 99 - Winning the Rumble, main eventing 4 PPVs, the aforementioned Shamrock victory, a victory against Austin & winning the belt? They jumped the shark big time.

Bossman - Every feud he was in turned to crap and he really wasn't in any shape to perform.

Judgement Day 2000 finish - Taker returns and shows the dasterdly 'faction' by giving them the WWE Title...what?!

King of the Ring 2000 finish - Rock doesn't even pin Hunter for the belt, what?!

Survivor Series 2000 finish - Austin kills HHH, LOL joke, not really but damn!

They showed the highlights of the match during the Rumble 92 PPV. And it was you that brought up certain spots in that match (spots that didn't happen of course).

Hmm... That's weird... I mean, they showed only the pinfall, yet you're saying that they showed "Highlights". Oh well. By the way- To say that he was with a fever is not a clean victory.

Good thing you posted the link, it's been a while since I've seen it. Now you posted the prove that those spots you mentioned are nowhere to be seen. Now unless you were there live you have no idea what else happened during the match.

All we see is Mountie reversing the small package. Fever or not, this counts as a clean pinfall victory.
