Re: Survivor Series 1999

It would have been a great triple threat if everything could go down no doubt. Russo and Kreski were night and day as head of creative. Kreski brought the company stability again and think he was better. He left though for the same reasons Russo did eventually too which has led us to our current lead in Stephanie Levesque(funny how everyone leaves out her husband's maiden name lol).

I think Test would have sucked as champion. Big Show I also think believed he earned that contract and was a pendulum shift for wwe.

My memory of this isn't the best, but I remember going through the Torch archives for 2000/2001 a few years ago and explicitly recall that Austin vs. Rock was always the go-to main event for Mania 17. Trips was actually going to either face HBK (if he came out of retirement) or Hogan (if the WWF could lure him away from his guaranteed Turner contract). That could explain why Taker and Trips were thrown into a match just a few weeks out as Vince had given hope on both the other two options.

I would go back and find the article in the archive, but I no longer subscribe to it. On a side note, if you want some "dirt sheet" information Keller should have most of the 2000s (2000-2010) up in the archives now.

You know how pissed I am I finally had to remove my "Think WWE sucks, Where were you in 1995?" sig picture. God damn ratings decline.

Re: Survivor Series 1999

Imagine if Test had the WWF title then HHH had stolen it and Stephanie away from him, damn that right there is the making of a VERY personal storyline/feud there

They really dropped the ball on that one.
