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!
