Re: Survivor Series 1999
There weren't long reigns back then so, looking back, it isn't too surprising that HHH dropped the title and then got it back basically a month later.
Test would have been a terrible champ: even for a few weeks. Even though Vince/HHH was a good hardcore match at Armageddon, they probably could have used Test there instead of Vince and had Vince interfere (or same match with Test interfering) and still done Stephanie's heel turn but on both Test and Vince.
It's kind of surprising they never actually did Rock/Triple H/Austin. I thought that they would for sure at WM 17 since Triple H defeated Austin at No Way Out basically setting it up. I think I remember reading that the plan was that and then Undertaker/Rikishi (that would have sucked) but Rikishi got hurt so they went with Rock/Austin and Triple H/Undertaker instead.
